Ok...thought this was interesting.
Mom called this morning practically begging me to go to the JC meeting that's coming up this weekend. I explained that I had asked 6 different elders to get a study started with me within a span of 4 years because I was "feeling weak". I was "losing sight of the truth". Each time I asked for a study I would say "I need help because I'm losing faith". They would say "we're trying to find someone "right" for you". This went on for several years. I finally asked this Pioneer sister that is known to have a "good standing with Jehovah" to study with me. At that time I was still convinced that the JW's WERE right and I was just losing faith. They came to me (and her) saying that THEY will get someone for me and that it will be soon.
Then several months went on without anyone contacting me. MY HUSBAND then went to them saying that "I think that my wife's faith is very weak right now and she NEEDS someone to study with her". Several months past and he AGAIN went to them a second time. "Brother's my wife NEEDS help now". I finally said to myself, forget them...I'll find out for myself. As I was digging deeper I was finding out how wrong they were.
I asked Mom..."why would I go through all that when for several years I was asking for help and the moment I put up lights they were there (the day before and the day after Christmas) demanding for a JC meeting?" They are SLOOOOOOOOW to help but quick to punish!!!
She told me that I didn't "wait on Jehovah" long enough. UGH!!
I'm glad they didn't come and "help" because now I'm out of the madness...but man-ol-man.
