Re: Writer from Silentlambs thinks reforms are coming! I hope so. (reply)
Maybe there is one point worth making here: you don't have to be educated or be in a higher income group to see through the Borg's bullshit, although, I think it helps. When I was taking courses at the University of Utah I remember...

Re: "The Name of God" - documentary film (reply)
Wow... interesting stuff Dianne. Aside from all the propaganda about God's Name being Jehobuh, we should remember that there are virtually no extant manuscripts of the New Testament that provide ANY evidence that the original writers...

Hi Val! I think your positive attitude is one of the top "medications" you could have. Keep staying positive. I'm sorry it's been such a rough couple of years for you... and I agree that the stress of leaving the Borg is among the...

Re: Writer from Silentlambs thinks reforms are coming! I hope so. (reply)
It's an interesting read. However, I think they are a long way from the kind of reform the article presents. The Watchtower recently stated that the brothers and sisters should obey the directives from the Society even if it did not make...

Fascinating thread, Michelle. SG wrote: If the GB organized a Jonestown-style mass suicide/mass murder, how many JWs would go along willingly?Let's hope it never comes to that. Personally, I don't think it ever will... however, I have to...

Re: Anonymous makes post about jws (reply)
I think the WBTS changed it's view on how long each creative day was. When I was in, it was thought that each day was 7,000 years (i.e. From the beginning of creation to 1975 was 49,000 years).Pauley, when I first understood how all...

Re: Anonymous makes post about jws (reply)
They did a lot more than "hint" at the date 1975. True, you will not find the statement: "Armageddon will come in 1975" anywhere in their literature. In the "Life Everlasting in the Freedom of the Sons of God" book, they said that 6,000...

I think it's way more complicated than being run by another secret organization, more complicated than "they must be corrupt to do the things they do..." I definitely think they are delusional. They are practically worshiped by the rank...

I have a fantasy about printing out hundreds of copies of the secret Elder's manual "Shepherding the Flock" and dropping off copies at the laundromats and doctor's offices. Or printing them out and anonymously mailing them to various...

Maybe do some "incidental unwitnessing" sometime. Engage him in some form of conversation when it's convenient... and the subject may arise without him thinking you are deliberately challenging him. Also, remember you don't have to do...

I never had any confidence in astrology... it was all bunk. I had a bit of a hard time with movies about the supernatural, but reason finally kicked in and I watched "The Exorcist." It was pure entertainment... even funny. My wife, who...
