I thought some of you (maybe newer ones to this board) might be amused by the situation I found myself in this weekend. We all have heard about how you can recognize true Christians by their actions and love, even more so than works, and this is why JW's are truly God's choosen ones, and everyone else is evil and wicked. Sure they are! Bullshit! Here is what happened to me, tell me if anyone in the Dub's would EVER think to do something like this for the weak and ill in their congregations?
It was yesterday, and my wife and I were at her neice's 11th B-day party. (better get up a JC quick, I'm such a sinner) Anyway, the neice's other grandparents were there, and were talking to my wife's parents. (all none-JW, I am the only JW related) Anyway, they were talking about how they had just finished delivering flowers to all those that were ill, not feeling well, or elderly in their Lutheran congregation. Apparently it is something done every week or month, and that this week it was they whom had volunteered to deliver these wonderful flowers and message of encouragement.
Do tell me, have you ever heard of the JW's doing this, EVER? I sure as hell haven't, and I grew up in the JW's, and went to several congregations. So, is it hard to see where the real love is in this world? I don't consider showing up for 5 minutes dressed in a suit and placing literature to count time to someone in need as very loving or concerned. And Bethel is probably wondering why numbers are leveling out every year, and even getting lower in some places of the world? Probably because everyone is getting fed up with their holier-than-thou attitude and being treated like crap, all the while they contribute NOTHING to the congregations in the form of community centers, hospitals, retirements homes, or even something as simple as sending out flowers. Truly, with age I have come to see this religion for what it is, a trap for suckers, the weak minded, the poor, and the gulliable. While I may believe with some of their religious beliefs, I feel that Russell would be spinning in his grave if he saw what a hyprocritical, money grubbing, hate filled, un-loving religion his vision has become. Truly it is a sad state the WTBS is in today.
Thanks for reading my post.....
