Hello, welcome to this place. Look forward to learning more from you about your point of view. The religion forums can be a rough ride - please keep arms and legs inside your chair at all times and do not attempt to remove your seat belt.

Beer? Okay, now I'm really curious. The JWs I've spoken to were all tea-totallers, I thought. Hmmmm.
Hey if you want to, check out the link in my signature and add your story if you'd like! There's no flaming allowed in it, and you'll get a real good idea of how many of the religious forum folks think. Mean to be helpful to anyone who wants to know who's who and what's up with each other.

If you want some Truth, go to jehovahs-witness.net..................Most Jehovah's Witnesses are scared to death to access websites that truly expose them for what they are and participate in honest debates. Not saying you're one of the cowardly types, but if you're looking for Truth about that religion, go there.

That why Im here.I have seen it and read stuff there but I would rather use a neutral site like this to be honnest. Any issues and debates can be directed to me here. Its not that Im a coward its just the way I operate in that I try to keep too unbiased sources and places in the main when it comes too debates and disscusions. It why I always excelled in history essays

No offense....but, first of all, is English your first language? If not, apologies in advance. I'm having trouble working through all your misspellings and grammatical errors.

Don't you at least proofread before you submit? Go back and look at your last sentence! I wouldn't mind discussing a thing or two with you, but I am not going to wade through a ton of confusing grammatical errors and attempt to decipher a load of misspellings in order to communicate with you. I'm sure there are others here thinking the same thing but are much too nice to point it out. I, personally, don't tolerate the general holier-than-thou mentality of JWs to begin with, so it is exceptionally irritating to me.

I don't know what is confusing about my last sentence. I was having trouble with the Galaxy tablet keyboard.
Anyway I'm on my laptop now so all is well.

Answer me one question HONESTLY before I get into any discussion with you:

~~Are you counting TIME in these discussions on the forum? Yes or No?

(For those of you not familiar with JWs, they have to count and report the time spent knocking doors and/or discussing their doctrines with others. The more time they can claim, the "holier" they appear to their elders and congregation members.............can you just imagine Jesus and his disciples doing such a thing!)

Haha good question. No, well I might put 1 hour down so I can get out of doing other stuff this month as I HATE door to door work


But hour counting is honestly not really my reason and I have never really brought into that whole thing anyway as it distracts from the quality of what you say by promoting quantity but hey humans like there records and lists for some reason


To be honest we have slowly started moving away as "hours" to qualify do certain things have been moving down. Most people down my way use it as a benchmark now than a deffinate "must" the only reason its not abloshed yet I think cause some die hards still cling to it.

You're funny.... and misinformed, imo, to a degree. I don't think you have been a JW very long. Counting time is a huge part of their spiritual health measurement...LOL. If your user name, JW2002, indicates you've been a witness since 2002, I can 100% guarantee you don't know the half of it!
