noooo don’t go. We need you. It’s ok, we are all in agreement- i know i am. It’s incredibly difficult to come to terms with the fact that the leadership of Watchtower are murderers. Yes, i said it. They are bloodguilty. Though we may be stumbled out of Watchtower, we’re NOT stumbled out of Jehovah’s love and his protection.
John 16:1 “I have said these things to you so that you may not be stumbled. Men will expel you from the synagogue. In fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he has offered a sacred service to God.
There was a time when i didn’t know or even conceive that this verse could ever refer to Jehovah’s people. And now, in all its clarity, it refers to no one BUT Jehovah’s people.
The last couple of days I have been in a funk. I think I need to go pray on the top of the mountain where there is less evil radiation.
EDIT: Communication by bursts of text often do not convey thoughts very well, and are interpreted in many ways. Meaning may be lost or even found when it is not there at all.
To clarify my last few comments: I find that I have posted some poorly considered comments lately. In an edit I said that I would take a break from posting. Leaving the forum is not something I have ever considered. When I do post I usually think before I click send, and many times my thought is "I can't post that, I don't know what I am talking about". Sometimes the thought escapes me.
All of you people here are true believers: passionate and caring I know without doubt. I have shared more with you in three months than I have in my lifetime with others. Above I made another comment that was really odd: "I think I need to go pray on the top of the mountain where there is less evil radiation."
Nobody could know what I meant, it was sort of short hand for what I do sometimes. The evil radiation I was referring to is the spirit of the air, and probably some of the radio frequency in the densely populated bowl shaped smog catching basin where I live. I sometimes ride my motorcycle to the highest point in the mountains and spend some time there taking in the view of creation and praying in a place where I feel more connected. The "less evil" was not pointed at the forum, though I see now that it may have been construed as such.
We should all have a thick skin, because the world where we live has no mercy. (I feel the need to post a bunch of scripture here, but will spare you.) At times the bashing of the WT and GB can be pretty poignant. Some may not understand the reasons for this and if they do not understand it, they should really look into it because there is good reason. That said we do need to be careful not to be calling for their destruction, rather calling to them to repent and avoid it. (here I am not saying that anyone has posted that they call for the destruction of the organization, only that a reader might interpret it as such... I am being careful to clarify today, as I always try to do.)
So, for my own sanity
, I do plan to refrain from posting unless something meaningful, and that I have the time to properly communicate. That said, I tend to be a very serious person to a fault. There are times that humor and music is just what we need, and I in no way want to suggest that people should not post such.
