i was raised jw.. and for all my bitterness toward the wtbs i had great parents.
over the weekend i was thinking about questions i'd ask them as a child..
Q " people that go to churches believe in God with their whole heart.. are they gonna die in armageddon?"
A. " jehovah will reach those who have good hearts"
Q " so all those people who dont see that they should be jw's , they all have bad hearts?"
A " no.. they just havent seen the light yet"
Q " but the talk today said everyones gonna die soon except for us"
A. " the brother that gave the talk cant see peoples hearts just Jehovah and Jesus"
(ok thats great..but now that i'm older dads answer isnt what the jw answer would be)
Q " why did jehovah kill all the babies in egypt."
A. " to make pharoh let his people go"
Q " but why babies? the babies werent preventing any one from leaving"
A " go play outside"
Q " why did Jehovah let all the babies die in Jesus day when he was born and they were trying to kill Jesus"
A "Go play outside"
Q " why did Jehovah kill all of jobs family off just because satan wanted to test Job"
A. " because satan said if everything was taken away from job he'd quit serving god"
Q " but why did his wife and kids have to die"
A " thats just what happened.. i dont know..i know he got a new wife and kids"
Q" so that made it better? getting a new wife and kids?"
A. " i guess it made job happy after all the bad things that happened to him"
Q " would you be happy if all us kids died and Jehovah just gave you 7 new ones?"
A. " stuff like that dont happen now a days"
Q " why did Jehovah kill davids baby when it was david and bathsheba that sinned not the baby"
A. " he did it to show he was angry at them for sinning"
Q " so if you do something wrong Jehovah is going to kill me?"
A " No .. that was back then.. jehovah changed his laws where the kids dont have to pay for the sins of the father"
any questions any of you can remember asking as a child?
