You're amazing!!!! in one sentence you say:
God has a Plan for every human being, that includes you and everyone else in Canada.
Then you say, right after that :
Only those who do the will of my father are my brothers.
Do you not see the hypocrisy in that?
I can see you preaching to someone and can picture it going this way :
RR: I'd like to tell you about the great things that I have learned about Jesus.
Friend: OK, great I really respect Jesus and what he believed in.
RR: Well.... (and at this point you would go into your beliefs that you choose to accept as what Jesus meant, as taught to you by the Bible Students).
Friend: RR, I respect that this religion has helped you get out of gangs, drugs, booze, etc. that is great, but a couple of things that you said contradict what I believe Jesus meant to say.
RR: So you're saying that you won't follow the Bible Students' faith?
Friend: Well, like I said, if it works for you great, but no, it just doesn't seem right for me.
RR: (You may have LEARNED some sweet way to end the conversation) .....but what you would really say in essence after that is that that person's beliefs are inferior to your beliefs and you would refuse to associate with him.
Don't worry, I expect you to deny that, but you have proven it by what you have said to Johnny Cip... as far as me, since I am saying it a lot less politely than Johnny Cip, I would imagine, to you, I must be from the Devil himself.
This is the biggie........ this is what is really gonna upset you...... because to you, you're heads and tails above the witnesses.... but your mentality is EXACTLY like JW's, Mormons, etc., etc., etc.
The funny thing is.... I don't think you've said one nice thing to anybody here, who has disagreed with you, but I still have to say this. (Also, despite the fact that you have shown NO compassion for the stuff that I and my kids are going through with my EX!!!!!-wife). To be honest, maybe you needed a strict religion to get out of the nasty stuff you were up against in the past and it seems like you have conquered those challenges.... but it doesn't mean that others on here can't teach you even more GOOD things in life.
