in my day, you were proud to be a jw!
you knew you'd get "persecution" and it was all good.
when you abstained from blood, you read the ingredients of a candy bar!

i've never been a jw, and i'm having a difficult time trying to understand the perspective of a born-in jw.
i want to ask questions that will cause this family member to began to think outside the box, but i don't want to trip off any apostate alarms and have him put his guard up.
i also don't want to waste time and energy asking questions that he can easily brush off and give the prepackaged watchtower answer without having to really think.

when i was a kid, going in "unassigned territory" was a big adventure.
we packed picnic lunches, loaded up the cooler with water and drinks, and of course, a trunk load of extra literature.
it was an all day affair and we really felt like we were doing something special for jehovah....going where there was no kingdom hall nearby and putting the message out there!.

i just remembered something from long ago..... i moved to california in 1974 after i had been in "the truth" for 11 years, having full-time pioneered and also having served time in federal prison over the so-called christian neutrality issue.. i felt completely confident that my bible education was the best on planet earth.
i had honed my skills by door to door preaching, discussion, arguments and attendance at the theocratic ministry school.. i began working as an artist in a huge company that manufactured all kinds of art, sculpture and wall hanging.
the head of the artists was a wonderful young man, skilled artist and devout christian who took me under his wing.
