Leaders or liars
The wt leaders are diluted liars more so than malicious liars. I believe that they somewhat believe the bullshit that they spew forth. But they are guilty of teaching us to teach others their diluted lies. We're just 'children' of the lie. They are the fathers of the lie. john 8:44
Not yet anyway. As far as i know many of them are renting halls and conference rooms.Although i have not visited each and every KH so cant vouch for all of them.
Perhaps WBTS will take all money to build a few there, at the same time ask the locals to contribute towards it , keep much of it and spend very little for show.Devious minds ,can cook up devious plans.
Elders who care more for their own prestige and power, rather than than the interests of the "flock".
Who would've thunk it?
Guess it is an international problem.
Sounds a lot like Ezekiel 34:2-3.
First, ZNMD, as one who was a regular pioneer (in NYC), I have to sincerely commend you on your personal performance when you were pioneering.
YES, looking back we know that we were duped and that the WTB&TS is a steaming pile of stinking horse crap, but in context, you took a job (so to speak) and YOU DID IT. If we were looking at a Bell Curve of pioneer performance for any category, YOU would be well over on the right side beyond the median, while _I_ would have been far to the left, anchoring the base of the curve.
In Real Life I was more like you, job performance wise. I'm interested in hearing more of your story. Where did you pioneer? Are you an XJW now? How did you get out? What was your "exit experience" like? How are you doing now?
I look forward to more posts from you, but not four at a time.
When Gorby was literature servant 30 years ago at age 18, he reminded the PO of the congregation to pick up his huge stock of magazines. His respons was: "I picked up all ready". I answered "you did not!".
"I did!" he said. "You did not!!" Gorby replied.
End of that sunday I had to give my apologise to this local boss.
Well,Thank you Nathan Natas for your kind words. There is a million stories inside my life story.
Not self bragging but yeah I worked very hard at being a good witness despite obstacles put in front of me by ones who may have had issues(I cant vouch for thier behavior) . I always beamed with joy when I would report a good placement and follow up on the literature offer of the month. All boxes always filled. I worked hard to do so and i am from humble background. So worked part time as well to support myself and lived frugally believing in giving my best to Jehovah alone but sadly not without tears.
So many have imitated my example that they are serving as regular pioneers now and they tell me so. Even bethel was so hearing reports baout me that they invited me to be a special pioneer and also to be onthe translation dept. But as I saiid earlier there is many a story inside all these events.All I can say now is I HAD NOTHING TO DO AND I DID IT WELL. LOL
Miles to talk about.
PS Sorry about the four at a time. being a newbie didnt know how it worked so clicked toomany times since it just kept saying uploading and nothing happening.
Have a good week.thanks for reading.
Nathan Natas , I would like to answer your questions but not yet ready to answer those yet. Only just started sharing for the first time in my life so give me time please. Not being rude.
Thanks for reading.
Don't worry, ZNMD, proceed at the speed that suits YOU.
This is a no-pressure kind of place; almost everyone here is 'recovering' or is very close to someone who is.
Also be comfortable knowing that this site doesn't try to cram you into a box and say, in effect, "Now that you've left the JWs, you MUST become a member of my cult!" so here you will find JWs who became Bible Students, JWs who became Catholics, JWs who became Muslim, Hindu, Wiccan,... you name it, we probably have one, even (whispering) Atheists!
All are welcome and no collection is taken! Sound familiar?
