If God is so set on devoted "worship", why didn't he create animals with abilities to do this as well?by lurk3r in
not sure if the way i phrased this sounds retarded or not, but i feel it's a legit thought.
god creates the earth giving it "life".
gives animals and the rest of his creation the same, but never created them to "worship".

1) i think it's ridiculous to tell anyone when and how to use something they paid for ( computers and internet service ).
2) i think it's ridiculous to tell married couples how to act in the bedroom.
3) i think it's ridiculous to tell people what kinda cars they should buy ( 4 door for fieldservice ).

i've done a jwn search on beards and had some great reads.. i've learned the history of russell vs. rutherford and knorr and the hippies.. here's what i'd like to hear about.. either you or someone you know who grew a beard and the fallout because of it.. for me, i'd love to hear about the squeaky clean elder who decided to grow a beard and got removed because of it.. katie kitten, from england, on another thread told the story of her dad, the squeaky clean elder who grew a beard in the 70's and got away with it.. i don't think that would happen in california 2009.. anyway, what are your beard stories?.
i'm all ears.
(and my ears are freshly plucked.

sola scriptura answered andersonsinfo:.
the wt leadership has hammered into all of it's elders and rank & file's heads, that it is not wise for a man to be alone with a woman he is not married too (adult or young woman... ie 14).
even in congregation sanctioned duties.. so, why, then, do so many service pairings involve just that: a brother alone in the territory (even if it's to make a call) with a sister he's not married to?.

according to some, we humans have a conscious mind, a subconscious mind and , perhaps, a superconscious mind.
it might be otherwise called the "higher self".. i read up on this subject years ago because i occasionally have experiences that suggest that some vastly more clever intelligence helps me (whenever it feels so inclined!)..
i can remember getting into trouble at work and , out of nowhere, coming up with some split second insight that saved me - so much so, that i had to ask myself, "where did that come from?".

i recieved a couple of books in the mail this week, and feel moved express a very sincere "thank you".
i will make sure these books go on to help others.
i know a few "inactive" ones that will be so appreciative in being able to free their minds by recognizing their former involvement for what it is.

just wanted to say hello to all here.
i really don't have much of a story to tell about myself.
just find myself at a crossroads of sorts and wondering if i should stay or move on, although the greater part is telling me to move on.. long story short, i have been a baptised jw for 14 years.
