How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My mom was disfellowshipped, and when I was 14, she decided to come back and was determined that I come with her. I was bored with it, at first, and thought the ideas were too pollyannish. But, when I started seeing more of the organization, such as being at assemblies, that's when I really woke up to how everyone in Jehovah's organization is so sincere and no one has anything to gain, so I started taking my studying more seriously.

    Secular Films:
    I love the How to Train Your Dragon series. Yeah, I know it's kind of a kid's movie, but it deals with a lot of adult stuff too--same for the Despicable Me series. It's a coming of age story, really. I also liked Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. Also, Little Women (the 1995 version), Big Eyes, Bright Star, Meet the Robinsons, The new Star Trek series, and Death Comes to Pemberley

  1. So template as in terms of the style or content? Does the funeral home print obituary sheets? I know the funeral home down here does. I have been to way too many funerals. In my old congregation, many people have, unfortunately, died. I think my mom has quite a few saved, so I could take some photos and PM them, if you wanna see some examples.

    Public talk

    According to the theme of the OPs talk, I think a good illustration would be regarding entering a country. They typically have standards like for you to be able to pass a background check. In order to become a permanent resident requires more qualifications and to become a naturalized citizen, requires yet more of applicants. God's kingdom is similar; for people to enter the new world, a prerequisite is to follow God's laws,etc. Just an idea.

  6. That reminds of a joke a brother told me once: Id like to die like grandpa, in my sleep, not screaming like everyone else in the car.
  7. Jet airplanes make me excited for some reason. I hope, if everything goes well, I'll be flying on one next year. Really excited about that prospect. It's fortunate that you didn't fall for someone across an ocean, then

    Lets Talk About Rice

    I like to make Chinese restaurant style rice, often with shrimp and chicken. I have a rice cooker and I typically cook my rice in broth. Then I put some onions to cook in a little oil and add the chicken and shrimp, then I'll add the rice, one egg, that I stir up with the rice, diced carrots with peas, scallions, and a little salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper, then I mix in the soy sauce and mix everything up real good, and serve up and try to eat while as hot as possible. It's really good. Almost as good as the restaurants. I also live in cajun country, and I really need to learn to make Jambalaya lol. I can make chicken etoufee. You start with a roux. Most people make it with Tony's instant roux, but it's not that difficult to make. It just takes patience. You mix some flour with oil and stir it until, as my cajun lady friend told me once, "it's the color of an old penny". If you don't live in the US and thus don't know the color of an old penny (especially if you're in a place like Canada where they no longer have pennies, here's an illustration) when it's that color, you add in onions then the chicken and seasoning and serve it over rice. I made a gumbo once, and the way I made it was similar to the etoufee, but with more water, and I added chicken, shrimp, and I think sausage, and, that too, is meant to be served over rice. Rice is very popular in south louisiana. I need to try this
  9. The way I see it, the same could probably be said of any of the processed foods we tend to eat on a regular basis. I wouldn't recommend regular alcohol consumption, like on a daily basis or anything, but even if a food or beverage you consume is a little toxic, the liver is an amazing organ, which can regularly cleanse the toxins we put in our bodies as long we take care of it. The liver can handle a little alcohol here and there very easily, so long as you're healthy.
  10. Ive never been sunburned in service. We're typically not in the sun long enough. I find, particularly with the crazy high humidity here, I'll more likely run the risk of heat exhauation before sunburn
  11. Its really not surprising. Because, it doesn't necessarily mean more dirt poor people so much as fewer rich people. In many religions, a clergy class can make obscene amounts of money milking off the parishioners especially if they get a book deal, a television show, or sell merch. But many of the same services are done by volunteers in Jehovah's organization. I think that's a big contributor. Another could be that we're active in more countries that any other religious organization including very poor countries. I find the economic standards of Jehovah's witnesses to be seemingly paradoxical too. Many Witnesses probably don't make as much as our peers but many also enjoy a better standard of living: its amazing how much money you save when you don't gamble, smoke, abuse drugs, or get drunk. So, Jehovah does a wonderful job of teaching us how to live well on less.
