Thought control - sexual fantasizing is wrong - May 2016 Watchtower
And here is the Simplified Version of the May Watchtower, and well, probably every other Watchtower from this point forward:
Isn't that the truth, they can take an article on anything and find a way to bring up watching porn.
"From this we can per-ceive that sexual fantasizing is wrongbecause it can lead to serious sin that isforbidden in the Scriptures and is out ofharmony with Jehovah’s way" - bollocks.
Sexual fantasizing can lead to masturbation, especially in teenage boys. This is a relatively harmless outlet, as no unplanned pregnancies or STDs can occur.
OMG, all the bullshit and guilt I was force-fed as a child about masturbation being "self-abuse", immoral thoughts being from Demons, no sex till marriage, masturbation turning you GAY, etc. Where do I begin?
I remember as a small child a small, thin, green book. I think it was the Family book. It actually talked about masturbation and how it was wrong, turned guys gay, etc. Then, as if THAT shit wasn't bad enough, the WT decided to bring out a book just for kids called, "Young People Ask." That was awkward, cringe-worthy, and embarrassing to say the least.
Now, WT has decided to guilt people some more? Surprise, surprise. Is THIS how they think they are going to stop pedo's from molesting children, by telling them to merely stop thinking about committing heinous crimes? SAD.
Speaking of thought control or lack of it..how can a guy not think of such beautiful woman as Salma Hayek, Dolly Parton or someone in the congregation when he reads in Proverbs 5:19...: '...let her own breasts intoxicate you at all times!'
Come on..are you going to tell me that, even if secretly, Proverbs 5:19 is not a favorite scripture of even the Governing Body and their Helpers?
I was listening to a talk in the kingdom hall once and the speaker started to talk about the dangers of anal sex and he was going into quite some detail.
I just thinking , “what are you some kind of pervert “ ?
After the talk the elder I was studying with asked me what did I think of the talk and I was “ What the hell is wrong with you people. There are bloody kids in here and your talk was basically pornographic. It is disgusting and there is no need to talk of unclean things in such detail “
Of course there was a certain amount of acting on my part. I loved to pull the holier than thou card out once and awhile.
It is all about controlling you by guilt!
Do you really think JW.org (aka watchtower, jw's & GB) ...care about your principles or morals? Really?
Their every magazine, rule or command is presented only to GUILT you!
Guilt ...... a powerful motivator. Guilt is used to beat you down & keep you begging.
Guilt ........a religious tool of control.
All authoritarian regimes have embraced the repression of sexuality.
They would rather those energies be directed towards the advancement of the regime's agenda (whatever that may be).
for once i have to agree with the watchtower.
for years i used to fantasize about a particular sister in the congregation. she was lovely. she was my hearts desire. she was married--so was i.
and what good did this do me ?
i ended up banging the living daylights out of her. booked a suite in a hotel and did it in style. lost count at 17 times that night. went on to shack up together. best sex ive ever had. it lasted best part of a year. i still have very vivid memories of it all.
and that all happened 35 years ago.
2 Corinthians 10: 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly,+ but powerful by God+ for overturning strongly entrenched things. 5 For we are overturning reasonings and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God,+ and we are bringing every thought into captivity to make it obedient to the Christ;
Lets be frank Brothers and Sisters, sexual thoughts or fantasizing about sexual ideas are pure evil.
Why for example I was giving a talk once before a congregation and there was a young pretty sister sitting in the front row wearing a skirt that had crawled way up past her knees up onto her upper things.
I couldn't keep my eyes off her gorgeous and attractive long legs
Well wouldn't you know it before long I started to get a little tingly feeling in my lower regions which eventually developed into full blown boner half way through the talk. I cant tell how embarrassed and nervous I was thinking about if the entire congregation could see that my little solider standing to attention.
Lucking for me I was wearing a lose pair of trousers which aided in concealing my inappropriate arousal.
This is another reason why I encourage all bothers to never wear tight pants in case of situations like this.
