I committed all the sins I thought I would. And none of the ones I thought I wouldn't - including adultery, thats my only big no no really.
What sin did you ever committ that you thought you never never would?
speaking against the society
Are we talking JW sins or the real thing?
I never thought that I would ever have sex out of wedlock. I never even thought I would actually sin in this way in my heart. I felt a very deep sense of principle. I knew that I should never even let it come up in my heart. As for sleeping with a married man...I honestly don't know for sure if the one man was still married or not. I did know that legally he was still bound to his wife through the legal waiting period between marriages. So, technically, in God's eyes maybe I did that too.
I had made a vow to God that if I ever did such a thing that he could curse me. I felt so strongly about wanting to be more than decent. My father molested me. I felt that I had to be more thatn perfect in behavior to be wanted as a wife. It's not surprising, then, to know that I felt that God had cursed me from birth to allow my father or anyone violate me in such a way. By the time I was sixteen, I began to understand that the brothers might feel that I was indecent or immoral and like my father if I told them I had been molested. I didn't even feel like I was good enough to have a so-called decent brother wanting to marry me. That stigma really sucks!!!
Never thought I would actually willingly do that some day. It has taught me not to judge other people too harshly. Every sin has its own story
yep, i had an affair with a married men.
Yes every sin does have it's own story.
with a married men
erm... with a married man or with married men? ([life of brian]if it's not too personal[/life of brian] ;-))
lolbut really - it still kind of gives me shivers saying stuff contra-borganisation
real sins - i was pretty sure i might dabble in most of them 'cept the illegal ones like killing and stuff.
Welcome to the board! You've come to the right place to heal.
When I was in my early twenties, I cruised the streets one lonely and cold night and ended up having the most boring sex with an older man. As a JW at the time, I could never have imagined myself doing that, but I did it. I confessed it to the elders and was publicly reproved. After leaving the witnesses, I began to explore my sexuality under less of a shadow of repressed disdain, and found the experiences infinitely more gratifying.
A threesome with a Spaniard and a Swede. They could barely understand a word of English, that just made it more fun!
