my elder of an uncle came to visit recently and taking note of how crappy-go-f#@ky and bored of life i seemed starts in "why don't you want to go to the hall?
" i give him the rundown of my disappointments in god, my issues with the bible, and how the religion is basically formed on the interpretations of russell and/or rutherford.

jws say everything they believe is based on the bible.
so name a jw belief that can't be proven using a bible alone and no wt publications.
i'll start with a hint... one of them has to do with the year 1919..

as explained to me recently, only jehovah's witnesses are actively fulfilling matt 24:14, thus showing them alone to be the true religion.
sidestepping the glaring issue of jesus stating that love would mark the identity of true christians, let's examine that notion.. .
i have personally rebutted that opinion by stating, with accuracy, that many christians have a gospel ministry and manage to reach hundreds of millions of people across the planet with their message.. .

cant the elders make it so that any deviation or any thought could be considered "loose conduct" and therefore a disfellowshipping offense?

i am very new to the site and i'm sure there is a learning curve, so please bear with me.
i have looked around a little and find the site very interesting and encouraging so far.
it is heartwarming to meet other people with questions or experiences who can relate them without needing to hide behind blatant negativity or automatic judgemental attitudes.

as many of you know last new years the jws attacked our "frosty" and egged our home.
" the co said, "so you are both not willing to meet with the elders..?".

our fellow poster, and long time family friend, cold creek swimmer called my wife and i today to let us know that he had lost his father in death yesterday.
our thoughts and prayers go out to you dear friend.
i pray that the god we love so much may give your family strength to get through the next few days.

three years ago, the buzz was "its just around the corner".. two years ago, it was "almost at the door".. one year ago it was "at the threshold".. now the watchword is "the door of the ark is closing".. could it be that the new "members only" publications will now isolate a small inner core of this group?
what do you think will be the outcome?
what do you foresee for the jw's in one years time?

i was caught saying a few "truths" about the organization to my tennis buddy whose family are witnesses.
he rather innocently related some things i expressed.
the next thing i knew i was being asked by the po if i had any issues with the faithful slave.
