i became 'weak' in the early 80's after being treated badly by a body of elders.
i had not sinned.

my mother had this discussion yesterday.
basically, my main argument was that if the fds gets jehovah's holy spirit and their "food" is "the truth", yet they always are correcting themselves, how can anyone in all fairness believe it's "the truth"??
you can't show scripturally why organ transplants are a form of cannibalism and clearly a disfellowshipping offense and a couple of years later after possible disfellowshippings or death, and then believe jehovah god changed his view suddenly.

according to my wife, who is reading some other discussion board, the following changes are happening in the organization, or will happen, or have happened:.
1. no more book study meetings.
instead, the book study is added to the theocratic ministry school meeting.. 2. awake is published only once a month.. 3. two versions of the watchtower: one for the public, one for the witnesses themselves.. 4. shortened sunday meetings -- 1.5 hours instead of 2.0 hours.. 5. shortened hourly requirements for pioneers (this one may not be as new as the others?)..

i have not posted here in a while, due to lack of time mostly.
today i was browsing the web for a work related issue, and i remembered jwd.
i also remembered thom, who used to post here and then made his own board.

i wonder if anyone else who grew up as a jw can relate with me on this subject.. i grew up hearing stories of 'faithful brothers & sisters' being tortured to a point where they were almost dead.
all they had to do to be set free was renounce jehovah and their religon.
the stories i heard of torture were graphic in nature and to this day i can not handle hearing about torture or watch it being portrayed in movies.

good evening everyone,.
another topic here made me think of the mormons who are counseled to have a years worth of food on hand in the event of an emergency.
food, water, money and gas are all things suggested to save.

hey "i am a newbie poster" and would like a running start here with a problem i have to solve.
a certain bible-reading friend thinks that her apartment is full of angels.
in last week's discussion of angels, i understand that an angel is only sent by god to certain people in order to complete specific messages from jehovah.
