How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Short version: My mum started studying when I was 8 or 9 - she was met in the house to house ministry. I was still living with my dad then but I would meet the sisters my mum studied with when I went to visit her. I went to my first meeting during that time. I then found out that one of the students in secondary school was a JW. So we started studying the My Book of Bible Stories book once a week. For some years the relationship with my dad wasn't great so when I was 13 I decided to move back in with my mum. At that time she had stopped studying but would still receive the magazines and be in touch with the sisters. I wanted to start studying properly so that's what I did, with a sister from the same hall. It wasn't easy to begin with as I come from a dysfunctional family background with not much parental guidance - So I loved to learn about the truth but putting it into practice was a whole different ball game. But looking back I realise that Jehovah really helped me to get my life on track - I don' t know where I would be now without him. Don't let your family background determine your life course and your personality.

    By this we will know that we originate with the truth, and we will assure* our hearts before him regarding whatever our hearts may condemn us in, because God is greater than our hearts and knows all things.+ 1 John 3:19, 20

  1. You can't, at least not on Android. But what I do is long press on the picture, tilt phone to the side so it is in landscape mode and bigger - then take a screenshot πŸ™‚

    Gay pride...

    This world usually goes from one extreme to another. Would we have been equally as outraged when, 50 years ago, gay people were regularly beaten up - not just by members of the public but by police and there was nothing they could do about it? These and other experiences have made people move to the opposite end of the spectrum - because society now allows them to do just that. So beating up is (rightly so) illegal, so just let them get married! We have a local strip club that is heaving every night of the year (not just in June) - it's bang on in the middle of the city centre not just some dodgy red light district. Up until a few years ago, there was a page three girl every day of their year. In my place of work we have men and women who are proud to live a very promiscuous lifestyle and there are flings going on between employees all the time. Are we as outraged about that as well? Because to Jehovah it doesn't make a difference. They are all immoral lifestyles but they no longer need promoting because they have become part of "normal" life. Granted, society never felt they needed to "speak up" for unmarried couples or pregnant teenagers - who in the past would have been ostracised. It just became "normal" - but we have to acknowledge that one part of Satan's system isn't worse or better than the other. Do we feel disgusted about gays but are perfectly fine with promiscuous hetero people? Would we avoid films that promote a gay couple but are ok with watching films that show otherwise questionable moral content? Just some food for thought.
  3. I think they will find that the law cannot be applied in this way because in the EU (Which Finland is part of) we haven't used those pre-printed slips for return visits for a long time - at least 15 years as far as I remember. When we take personal notes it's just for memory aid. I usually just use first names (the householder could refuse to give us their names) and write anything down for our own memory. This will not be passed on to the organisation. Once the householder says, they no longer want to be visited *poof* my notes are generally destroyed. I don't pass them on to the next person working the territory. Whether or not we take notes, we will come back anyway and my notes also remind me to not accidentally visit a person. In fact, if someone explicitly states they do not want to be visited, we need to write that down for the central records. Otherwise they will be visited. I mean, that could backfire. In Germany, people put their names on the door bell - the mother country of all privacy laws!
  4. Thanks Tortuga, I searched for a post on this article before but none of they keywords brought anything up 😊
  5. I think this has gone relatively unnoticed but just found this article : http://m.dw.com/en/jehovahs-witness-note-taking-challenged-at-eus-top-court/a-42408206?xtref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.co.uk%2F Gonna be interesting how they are going to try and enforce that in practice. Might backfire because if we can't remember the last time we visited someone we might have to call back more often 🀣 Maybe diary writing will be outlawed as well.. oh the possibilities! I think that Mengozzi is wasting his energy on this case.
  6. Wasn't there a reason why "smaller" languages are being released first? Think it has something to do with the printing volume for the major language groups.... But can't quite remember.

    Things You Shouldn't Say!

    Sorry but if you need a lift to the airport we need to finish the territory first. Things you should not say to a someone who keeps asking you and your husband when you are planning on having children.

    Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    Isn't that interesting how different tastes can be? I loooove spicy food and eggplant - but have to admit not many people and restaurants can cook it well. It's often undercooked and rubbery. I am often surprised why people put up with the bland food in the UK. Coming from mainland Europe and being exposed to so many different cuisines I am very adventurous with my food and love to try new things. When my husband told me that his favourite childhood food was spaghetti hoops on toast I nearly lost the will to live On the other hand Britain is very multi-cultural and has a lot of restaurants that serve the most delicious food if you know where to look - way more choice than my home town in Germany.
