    I remember that being more true in the 70's.

    It been a long time since I saw anyone new being that excited to preach.

    Great post! It is difficult to with hold what we know (based on facts not "faith") to be the truth. However, I agree with Stuck that it's best "to take our time and drop small bits of truth at a time"!

    I think back to how I would have reacted if some "mentally diseased apostate" (lol) would have confronted me with ttatt when I was pimi. Taking it slow is really starting to pay off with my wife and my 4 adult children and their families also. They have really 'slacked' off on meetings and especially fs. I believe that I'm 'winning them over even without words' so to speak because they can see how happy and fulfilled my life has become.

    I've become a good example of a "bad example"! lol

    just saying!

    Yes that used to be an expression to describe enthusiastic new people in the truth. But it’s a long time since I heard it used, I guess for two main reasons: 1) no new converts and 2) no enthusiasm.
