    I had a co-worker challenge me to tell him the special phrase the JWs use in the d to d work. He became quiet when I told him "field service".

    Another co-worker laughed when I told him that JWs use the phrase "The Truth". He said "What does that mean - that we're in the lie?" He kept joking about it for the next several weeks. Every time he saw me he would say "Hey brother, we're in the lie!"

    Loving the world: That is supposed to be a sign that you are in complete spiritual peril and in a path to destruction of your own doing, with no one else to blame but yourself. It also means that you are not worthy of being seen as a respectable JW in good standing.

    When talking to a counselor I asked her what would she say If I say "I love the world". She said that to her it means that you are in good spirit or feel happy. I explained to her what it means in JW-ese, and realized then that simple expressions mean something so way off what they really are supposed to mean for normal people.

    evidently to a normal person that means facts, evidence to back it up. To a jw it means conjure up some random events and give them meaning!

    jehovah to a normal person means the war god of the nomadic ancient hebrews. To a jw it means everything.

    jesus to a normal person means a person who lived a peaceful, inspiring life and encouraged others to do the same. To a jw it means nothing!

    just saying!
