deegee, you asked:
"I am always curious when someone claims that God showed them something.
How does God do this?
Why didn't God show you that the truth as JW's know it isn't the truth from the very beginning?"
Well, I don't really have an answer for that. You have a good point. Why wouldn't have God shown me the truth about the JW's from the beginning? I really don't know. I don't have a logical answer for that. I guess for me, it's one step at a time. But you make a really good point. At the time back in the 80's when I was praying to know God, I got involved with the JW's and I thought that was God's answer. Now I know it wasn't God. I think God allows us to find our own way.
At least, that's what I think now. One thing is for sure. I'm not going head-long toward any religion right now.
