    Priceless! :D

    You would recognise the Wallflower ewe......she's the one who comes rushing to the waterhole, excited to join everyone else here but forgets to brake in time at the water's edge. So she goes "head over turkey" (falls forward and somersaults) and ends up with legs in the air and blinks at the other sheep...."Baaaa! Why y'all look like y'all upside-down!" :D

    "I personally have not been to a meeting since sometime in 2006 but have noticed the comments of those of you who still attend and are affected by the teachings of the governing body of the watchtower organization."

    You have just flipped & flopped about into that river,,,there are VERY different circumstances here that,,,that we are here. But you KNOW that already. Some of us here (If I may say so) are under the pain of the Healing process, are under the Process of gaining Spiritual insight, are under a "new light " of, not our own but of God's Light,,of, realizing for the Last Time, that the Doors will be Shut, "No More, Mister Nice Guy".
    I see here on this site, some affected by the WT Org. Good for you ,,,It's a wake-up call for you,,,.

    It is Never too late to stay awake,,,(be it waiting for a World War Three, or, like the Scrips say: It will not be Discernable to you".

    I would like to clarify 2 points:

    Firstly, the above comment was made by the poster BelongingtoJah (BTJ). They are found on post #2 of this thread. They do not appear in my posts.

    Secondly, at this point in time, I'm still attending meetings at the local Hall in the area where I live. (I'm a "satellite sister".....in the congregation but not a part of it.......persona non grata.)

    I must belong to a unique congregation, full of kind and patient people (Elders especially!)

    The horror stories I read from ex-JWs seem anathema to me ... not that I doubt their veracity!

    But I love the meetings. Upbuilding, full of insight into the scriptures from various commenters, and beyond that a true brotherhood of 'like-minded' people.

    The ministry in my area is also productive, lots of people out there turning against the Bible for the wrong reasons!!

    It's become far less about 'doctrinal' differences between Christians and more about the Bible versus atheism.

    So being able to show someone that God isn't a genocidal mass murderer is an important work, I think, and one I am happy to be a part of.

    (not that I need the congregation for this ... but I'm lazy, and wouldn't go in the ministry alone, because I'm weak - I need my bros/sis)

    1914 / governing body drive me nuts though ... a more presumptuous self-exalting group does not exist. This latest series of Watchtower has been a struggle to get through; I intentionally missed this Sunday's study, because I just don't want to hear it.
