How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I am from a non religious background. I used to work in a bar and the Witnesses would sometimes come to the bar where I worked and meet up for coffee at the end of their field service. Over time they informally witnessed to myself and other staff. At first I was not the least bit interested but one day I heard them discussing the subject of evolution vs creation. When I was at school evolution and genetics had been a big interest of mine so I sat down and listened to the conversation and begin to ask questions. With my interest well and truly ignited in the bibles scientific accuracy, the witnesses returned to see me with literature and eventually I started to study. I devoured the Teach book and Gods Love book and loved studying. I was baptised two years ago and thank Jehovah each day for sending the witnesses to me and also for helping me to actually hear and take to heart their message๐Ÿ’—

  1. I've seen trailers for this new film called The Children Act. Here's the Wiki synopses A High Court judge is asked to rule in the case of a minor whose parents are refusing to allow their child undergo a life-saving blood transfusion for religious reasons, which is primarily the teaching of the American Worldwide group now called Jehovah's Witnesses who regard the instruction of the early Jewish tradition forbidding 'life-blood' ingestion [Deuteronomy Chapter 12 vs 23&24 in particular, but there are others] whereas, as in the film, this belief is applied and extended to the forbidding of any medical blood transfusions within JW communities. Emma Thompson, as Hn. Mrs Justice Haye in the film, has to rule between the JW teaching and a medical remedy that will save the life of a teenage minor despite the parents' objections to the blood transfusion. Has anybody seen this film? I wondered how it portrayed our stance on the blood issue. I imagine that people we meet in our ministry will believe everything that the film says, whatever that might be
  2. Oooer! My secret is out ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also, your smoothies sound delicious. Practical, economical and very healthy ๐Ÿ’›. Very creative ๐Ÿ‘
  3. I'm in agreement with you Katty. I've never been involved with other forums but I used to be on facebook. I felt like it was taking up too much time and if I'm honest it was like a back door way of keeping in touch with worldly associations that I was trying to leave behind. It provoked negative feelings in me that I didn't like and even though I wasn't actively commenting on what people were doing, or where they were going, and who they were associating with, you can be sure that in my head I was commenting! I also found it interesting what you said about Instagram. I've no experience of it, but I can relate it to facebook. I used to post photos and stuff, but like many other people, I only posted pictures when we went out somewhere for the day of if something special had happened. As my Christian conscience became a little more finely tuned, I started to wonder "Do I sound like Im bragging or showing off" by my posts? I had to question myself deeply about what I wanted others to feel when they saw my posts and I'm not proud to admit that there was an element of smugness on my part which is not an attractive quality. I can see that for some people social media can be very helpful and a great way to keep in touch with family and friends. For me personally, I have no family on Facebook and the friends who I want to keep in touch with I can do so by e mail or even by putting pen to paper and writing letters. It's funny that even in this day and age people love getting letters or postcards in the post. I should add that I'm of the generation that wasn't brought up with social media, so for me it's a case of, "tried it but decided its not for me"
  4. if I had this plate of strawberries, I would make.... A fortune at Wimbledon ?
  5. @Tortuga I've just listened to it on you tube. Very funny and unfortunately oh so true
  6. I'm am sooo sick of tv commercials trying to sell us funeral plans / life insurance. (British tv I refer to. Can't speak for the rest of the world). All those happy people on tv fantasizing about how great their funerals will be and how irresponsible it would be, to be so inconsiderate as to die without such a plan in place, thereby depriving your family of a cracking day out celebrating your demise, complete with a marching band, a marquee and caterers. Aaaaaaargh ( Rant over)
  7. Anybody remember this pop classic? "Star Trekkin" by The Firm.
  8. Ah, Blakes 7. Now there's a blast from the past. My favourite Star Trek was The Trouble with Tribbles. Absolute classic๐Ÿ˜‚
  9. I think this is the best transport idea ever. Enlist help from the animals to aid our travels. Not only horses and camels and the usual ones, whale drawn boats maybe, dolphin drawn jet ski type things. I wonder if enough eagles or albatross could be persuaded into harness for air travel???
  10. Believed to be of Scottish origin, from shanks' nag (shanks-naig, attested 1774). We say Shanks Pony here in Blighty๐Ÿด

    My off topic thread

    A lady I know is renowned for being talkative and not listening to other people. She just talks about herself all the time and rarely comes up for air. She was telling me the other day how her friend had called round for coffee at 6pm one evening. .....And I quote..... "Well, we had coffee and I was chatting away and the next thing I looked up and my friend was asleep. Mind you, it was 2am in the morning"
  12. What an amazing weekend we have just had at our convention. So much to take in and meditate on. I hope all you guys who are still awaiting your conventions enjoy it as much as we did๐Ÿ˜˜

    Slightly off topic but relevant to all bookworms. I wasnt sure whether to post in this thread or the "Will it be boring in the new system thread".... the best job ever for a bookworm - archivist our librarian in the new system. Imagine being able to read and organise all the stuff from our system but all the new scrolls and new stuff too๐Ÿ˜
