I feel like this podcast revived me. My slogan as of late is to seek Jehovah’s righteousness and this podcast is an encouragement to do just that. Great timing for me. Thank you to Jehovah and to his watchman and I am happy that Brother King acknowledges there are those of us who may not be disfellowshipped but we cannot stomach the meetings. Many of us are marked and treated like we are disfellowshipped AND most importantly for my conscience, I cannot sit silently while hearing and witnessing the lies and idolatry at the meeting that are mixed in with truth. I just cannot see how that honors Jehovah and I cannot believe that is what he wants. After spending my youth as a Catholic, I know that is how Christendom thinks they worship God. They just spend an hour a week sitting in church, listening to the Priest‘s expression of faith and going through meaningless rituals. I left that behind when I became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and I can no longer just go and sit (like a lump on a log) and listen to something that I cannot support. I don’t believe that is what true worship is. True worship is active, meaningful and based on what is true as stated in God’s word. If it doesn’t come from the heart what good is it?

Hey my sister How you doing? Regardless of what you feel about the W/T not all that comes out of there is ungood.
There is still good reminders coming from the platform. However if your cage is all shook up, it might be good to stay away. I left the meeting on Sunday couple paragraphs into the WT study "The Kingdom Is In Place" interesting song was used titled "The Kingdom Is In Place - Let It Come" I rang a brother (ex elder ) later in the day and talked with him about the song title and quizzed him. He made the point that for the Kingdom to be in place it would have had to come first. Curious to know if my witnessing to him these last 4 years is having some effect? Keep on truckin.

I’m good and I agree with your statement that not all the comes out of there is ungood. However, what is good is most often “milk”. What happens to someone who only takes in mother’s milk? Their growth is stunted. I dig into the bible every day and find great and nutritious spiritual food and I have others that I share my faith with. Just staying on the watch. Thanks for asking.

I guess my feeling revived came from me having a bout of the downers. I was feeling down and the podcast just gave me the boost that I needed. Thanks again.

Exactly how I feel. I thought about this today, what makes us NOT a cult, is we follow Jesus. When we follow men, that is a cult. It doesn't matter how convinced those men are that they are "hearing God's voice" or are "God's spokesman", and if you believe that, you are in a cult! "Jesus trusts us", is exactly what a cult leader would say!

If anyone questions me about why I don't think the GB are the "faithful slave" that's going to be my answer. A Christian religion follows Christ, a Cult follows men, who claim they speak for Christ!!!!
