Great comments....so true...witnesses want the end to come because they just can't cope with life. That's all it is. They also think they won't have to die, most think they'll just cross over. I'm a witness & most of them don't even have the patience to stand on line or any of life's little inconveniences. They complain about any and everything, feeling like they are the only ones going through it. They complain when they spend money yet, I say, we have more money than most, we don't celebrate holidays. They just want the GT to come soon so they can say they were right. Because being right is the most important thing to a witness & being able to rattle off scriptures, just to show how smart they are.
@ Sparrowdown...Ezk 36:23 & Ezk. 38:23...Jehovah said HE WOULD SANCTIFY HIS NAME...so why are JW's doing it too ? We are supposed to turn folks attention to Jesus Christ....we are supposed to give the good news that he died for our sins....Jehovah don't need us to clear his name, that's why he sent his son...He said, Listen Michael or Jesus or whatever humans call you...I've got a bad rap, do me a favor, go down there, & clear my name for me....they'll think it's me, but no matter....tell them you are my son & that if they want an appointment with me...they got to contact you son. Now, there's a little hitch....I'm going to have to let you be killed & son, I'm sorry, but it's going to hurt...I would rescue you from the stake, cross, again, who knows, humans can't get anything straight, but I won't be able to save you...you'll be tortured....again, I can't save you, because I have a beef with this guy, Satan, you remember him ? Anyway son, you won't be dead for long only 3 days....That's my story of the bible...simplified...lol..
Can't blame witnesses for who they are...they don't read the bible...they recite it..they are spoon fed...me, I check the bible against what they say....& I've found out...The SOCIETY ISN'T RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING....They read too much into the scriptures.
There is nothing NOBLE minded about a JW...most not all just give it lip service.
