victory (author unknown)
when you are content with any food, any raiment, any climate, any solitude, any interruption - that is victory
when you can bear with any discord, any annoyance, any irregularity, any unpunctuality (of which you are not the cause) - that is victory

when i left the rub a dub dubs, i was bitter, angry, disillusioned, and fearful of stepping out in faith again.
i didnt want to get burned.
i could have stayed that way.

i wonder how many are still drawn to the beliefs but just don't believe the wtbts is jehovah's representative on earth and the only hope for mankind?.
of course we know some are not correct like 607 bc and 1914 and 1975 etc.. breeze

i asked my sil if he can help me to get copies of july 1 through to sept 1 watchtowers.
he knows that i am disillusioned with the wt and that i am born in, but never been baptised and he doesn't shun me.. here is his reply.. "yes i can help, but it would depend on why you wanted them and what you wanted to accomplish by reading those issues, :-).
i have had a few ideas on how to reply, but i would like to hear your comments before i reply.. .

ok.... just trying to find a better understanding here.... no stupid posts like, "...because it's the governing body.
" - please.. ok.... how do the witness justify the bible and at the same time condem catholicism et all.... i mean, the books in the bible were picked by the council of nicea - which according the the witnesses - were part of the great appostasy and sanctioned by the same group of religious leaders they condemn..
