I’m sorry you learned the hard way about ‘lending’ JWs expensive tools among other things.
Too many Witnesses are Users plain and simple who will take what they can get (Freebies) from people who can’t say NO. This is the naked truth about it all.👎
I never resented anybody who was well-off and never expected anything from anybody..I did not ‘covet’ anybody’s anything.. I had a full-time job and supported myself. However, I was criticized for having this job - and by older people collecting their pensions, to boot!!.. Because of this hateful attitude towards me, I wouldn’t give so much as a dime to pioneers who didn’t work. I also Refused to do favors for all the Users.
I was charitable towards certain single women who were friendly towards me. These women were poorly paid and sadly did so much for the religion.
It’s interesting to note these single women are needy today!!!..Women who don’t get married or get a career end up poor in their senior years!.. This is why I have no regrets about my full-time job because I am Retired now.. The religion and the hypocrites within would certainly not be supporting me or anybody else.
