i wanted to try out the new "system" simon has created for us so i thought i would ask a question that's been bugging me for a while.. "field service reports" - is this the correct terminology for the 'time sheets' a jw fills out to show how much time they spend going door to door?
what's bugging me is how do jws justify needing to fill out these 'time sheets?
' it would seem to me that god/jehovah would know how much time someone spent in service to him, and therefore not need a piece of paper to prove how dedicated someone was.

this morning's paper had an article on the amish [nothing in depth, just about how they sell their wares at local markets] but it brought to mind the ideas of the amish - they want no part of the world, they don't like to call attention to themselves, don't baptize little children, and they shun those who leave the faith.
i was just wondering if anyone here could shed some light on how jws view the amish.
are they impressed?

i'd just like to say congratulations to all those who've worked so hard and suffered so much at the hands of the wtbs to bring the pedophile scandal to the forefront.
i was thrilled to see the front page headline in my newpaper this morning [the record] .
"a battle rises within jehovah's witnesses".

i've been interested in the discussion on the 'for those of us who believe in god' thread and aguest wrote this:.
"we have been misled into understand what 'faith' really is.".
if we have all been misled, then can someone explain what exactly faith really is?

i've been lurking on this board for a few months and realize i'm addicted so i finally decided to post.
i'm not a witness and never was - i was shunned before i could even begin to study because i asked too many hard questions and had the audacity to want to be engaged to jw.
the relationship ended when his 'loving family in the truth' told him they would shun him if he didn't break it off.
