How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I grew up in a divided household. My parents fought like cats and dogs, and as a result, I didn't want to hear about religion. But at 13 years old I wanted to fix my family, and so I prayed to whoever might be up there listening and purchased my first bible, a New Revised Standard Version, and began reading. In time, I became passionate over Koine Greek and translation issues, and the more I read the Bible and the deeper I dug into spiritual things, the clearer it became to me that Jehovah's Witnesses were in complete harmony with the word of God.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Family - doing things together with my wife and children is wonderful - a family that plays together (and prays together), stays together. I'm a Bible teacher and much of my interests center around following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:21). I'm also an internet junkie - probably not a good thing.
  • My favorite books
    God's Word, the Holy Bible (I've collected over 40 translations of this book in Hebrew, Greek, English, and Spanish).
    Truth in Translation: Accuracy and Bias in English Translations of the New Testament by Jason David BeDuhn
    The Role of Theology and Bias in Bible Translation by Rolf Furuli
  • My favorite music
    Such a broad range that it is too much to list. Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Peeping Tom, Mondo Cane, and more), The Cure, Andrea Bocelli, and classical music too. Popular music is okay, until it has been played to death. Probably shouldn't mention some of these. Sadly, you have to listen to an album and weed out the bad songs on just about anything these days.
  • My favorite quotes
    And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free - Jesus at John 8:32

  1. It just dawned on me, that Crystal and I have been tobacco FREE for 17 years now. We quit on October 7th, 2000 motivated by our study of God's Word.

      When you look at us now you wouldn't believe what some of us used to do in our lives. Thanks to Jehovah that we have power beyond what is normal to make our lives clean and make Jehovah's heart glad.  Well done Bob and Crystal on your 17 years smoke free. (:P)

      Wow, congratulations.


      My wife has been free of that garbage for more than ten years.


      As for me, only 3 and a half years but still strong.


      Hope you don't mind me asking, do you dream of smoking sometimes?

    4. Dismal_Bliss


      No, I don't dream of smoking. However, for the first several years I loved to stand next to a smoker and be in the same room with a smoker, because I loved the smell of smoke. However today, it is repugnant to me. Interestingly, my wife has developed an asthmatic reaction to it in recent years.
