I thought it would be fun to say yes to a weekly bible study just to see how far I could go in undermining the J.W. beliefs, also to be honest I thought it would make a family member happy. So I slowly and methodically refuted and questioned all the nutty things that my study teacher, or whatever he's called, tried to throw at me over a period of about 4 months. Towards the last few weeks the teacher, whatever, would say that he'd be over around 11.00 and then not show up untill after 12.00. Sometimes he wouldn't show up at all, or even call to offer an explaination. I guess I was supposed to just put my life on hold and hope he decided to show up! On other occasions he would get so mad that he would turn red in the face and yell out, (I DON'T WAT TO HEAR THAT!), or some such rant. Thing is, he would refuse to read, or listen to, any proof I had assembled showing that he might possibly be wrong, and if I pushed the issue and challenged him in any way he just went batshit. It was as if his brain had been short circuited or something. Mind you, this same person told me one day that that he couldn't go into any thrift stores that were operated by the Salvation Army or any other religion. This wonderful insight came about when i was telling him where to find some bargains on some things he was looking for. I leave others to comment on this one. It leaves me speachless. To make this short, I eventually tired of the game and called him, leaving a message on his answering machine that I could no longer continue the studies since i had absolute proof that he was simply wasting his time teaching a false set of beliefs and since it was a bunch of Hoooey I saw no reason to waste my time learning it. I did leave him a carrot though, I told him that if he wanted to come by and read and discuss the Bible itself, no Watchtowers or Witness books allowed, that I would be fine with that. As I suspected, it's been a week now and no response whatsoever. He has simply drifted off in hopes of finding new converts. I feel sorry for the guy. He's in his late 40's, has no children because he said that to bring children into this wicked world would be bad for them. Spends 30-40 hours a week going door to door, plus trying to keep a handyman business going. Not even the new Generational change notice fazed him. He just stated that he wanted to be ready for armageddon no matter when it occured and he was certain that it was soon. Within his lifetime for sure. Anyway, just wanted to share this with everyone here. I don't post much, but try to be interesting when I do.
