Just thought I'd share this ridiculous picture from a recent Watchtower. In recent years, the word bullying has been thrown around a lot, and often misused by instigators and subtle bullies themselves. In this picture we learn that your loving family who wants to continue sharing a family tradition with you, who hands you a beautifully wrapped present with a smile on their face, is in fact bullying you. Better yet, Satan is using them. But this perceptive young Bible student sees through the ordeal. The fact that they appear to be a very well adjusted family and they probably even believe in Jesus like the young JW claims to is irrelevant. His family is in actuality Satan's angry fist.
Satan is "bullying" you through family
What publication is this from?
That is just so paranoid and distorted! This certainly would play into the persecution complex of witnesses!
It's from the May 2018 Study Edition, part of a collage of ways Satan bullies us.
They really are ramping up the crazy hey!
This is so bad. Really really bad
When someone (the org) has no defense for their own bad behavior, they will come out swinging with the best offense they can find - mainly, they will accuse the other person of doing exactly what it is that they themselves are guilty of
Disfellowshipping and shunning are the worst kind of bullying you can find yet the org points their finger at people who are acting loving and caring and calls that behavior "Satan!!!"
Gaslighting at its finest
Sounds like something my jw has said in the past.
Another Temptation: Luke 4:2 New International Version
Satan's temptation and bullying skills must be on the decline. He's lost most of his power.
He was so powerful 2000 years ago... like tempting Jesus with hunger and asking Jesus to jump off a cliff.
Now in the year 2018, he's down to tempting and bullying you with Christmas trees, holiday sweaters, and gifts.
This image needs to be lambasted across social media. I think it's imperative for non-Witnesses to see how their JW families' religion is portraying them. If being "worldly" was a race, the WT extremism and segregation would become so much more palpable to the outside world.
How the f*ck can JWs preach that they're about family unity and love when they DEMONIZE non-believing family members, poisoning the JW ones against them? Saddest part is, those studying the WT will completely miss the fact that they've been manipulated and played yet again by the Governing Body's propaganda.
This is so ridiculous. And yet something so obvious to me will be just another run of the mill illustration for a JW. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this point.
I look at it this way, if it were not a problem that cult members are leaving they would not be doing this. LOL I hope it keeps going. Let them dry up like the pus sac they are.
