my almost 17 year old daughter left to stay with her dad last thursday.
this is the second time she has left due to my strict rules, like 10p school day curfue, get to school on time, keep your grades above a c. she has not kept to my rules, so as a consequence i told her this last wednesday night she has lost driving priviledges of the car i gave her on her 16th birthday.
she said she was leaving to live with her dad.

when i came to this board, i thought that it was for encouragement amoung people who had been treated badly by the wtbts, i did not understand that people were going to come here and bash god, his son and the bible.
i could understand some embitterment over religion but some of you people are down right insulting.
not to mention the fact that i have tried to contact others on the board and have had my messages ignored.. .

rude and ill-mannered sales people, telephone solicitors, and people who use their sleeves as tissues and napkins..

so just about everybody here knows that russell had some sort of obsession with the pyramids, and his gravestone serves as that embarassing reminder to his false prophecy, shaped like a pyramid itself.
and this is why i found this image on a awake!
magazine of 2005 quite disturbing.

many of us who were once jehovah's witnesses had a measure of happiness in our lives.
for me, i had a hope in the future, i had answers as to why we are all here, i believed in a loving god who looked after me and cared about me, i had answers to all of lifes big questions.. when i found out the truth about the witnesses, i was lost in a great big world and now had no answers other than the fact that what i once believed was "the truth" in actuality wasn't the truth.i now had to start all over in my search for truth.
for me, it wasn't long before i found what i thought was the truth since i always believed in the bible.

i makes lots of mistakes.
in words and deeds.
i'm usually flying by the seat of my pants and don't think before i say and do things sometimes.

many people don't know why they "feel" what they feel.
they fall in love with the wrong person.
they cry unexpectedly.

hey guys as you can see i am still new and still keen to hear other peoples points of view on my issues.
anyway i always wondered because i have friends who are pentecostals who seem to have this amazing ability to pray and they feel like they are talking to god.
i never ever felt like i was communicating with someone when i prayed it always seemed futile and it always seemed like a repetition of someone elses prayer.

this is something i posted on minimus' "looked down" thread, and thought i would split it off into another topic.. so why is there a seemingly large number of x-jw jerks in cyberspace?.
