Cheeessuuusss some of you people must have been in congregations from hell .I was in about 7 different congregations in two seperate states in Australia. In all of those congs most .brothers and sisters were either an employee ,or they were self employed or owned their own business and employed some brothers.
In my first congregation the PO and his assistant were both fleshly brothers and both were employed as " Life salesman". Other self employed brothers were house painters, Tilers ,Builders ,plasterers,electricians and plumbers An ex missionary and his wife ran a beauty salon that my wife was employed as a beautician.at one stage. Both my sons were employed by brothers at one time or another..I myself had a full time job It was never a problem in Australia in my experience ?
And it was a great social life that we experienced for many years .Maybe that was why it took 33 years to wake up we were having too much fun and could overlook problems that were beginning to mount up until we could no longer overlook them anymore.
I truly feel for you people who were living in these shit congregations that sucked the soul out of you .
As for GTTM`s I`m sorry you are going through this ,obviously she is not going to be challenged by doctrines that not being a big deal for her it seems she is just emotionally attached to the religion and it`s social life and a feel good feeling about it.
That`s the bubble that needs to be burst .How you do that is up to you ,you know her best .Many people are in the religion purely because of emotions ,feeling good about a new system where they pet pandas and lions all day eating oversize grapes in a house that`s been leftover from some rich dude in this system .
They will be told what to do and what they can`t do by a GB in the new System and it won`t be up to individuals to choose what they can and can`t do .
Big Brother will dictate with rules and regulations how paradise will be run.
