How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    The short version is: I asked God to send me someone to show me the way out of the religious fog I had been living in all my life. After not seeing a witness for 7 months, 2 sisters turned up on my doorstep 4 days later. After reading the 2nd chapter of the PE book that night, I knew it was the truth.

  1. This is pure evil!!! Warning - graphic description of torture!! https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/02/20/7-jehovahs-witnesses-brutally-tortured-russia-spokesman-says A spokesman for the Jehovah’s Witnesses has said that Russian investigators have brutally tortured adherents of the group who are currently held in detention. A spokesperson for the Jehovah’s Witnesses said Tuesday that investigators in the Siberian city of Surgut had stripped, suffocated, doused with water and applied stun guns on "at least seven" believers detained on extremism charges, days after criminal cases were reportedly initiated against 19 Jehovah's Witnesses following mass raids. “The agents stripped the men naked, put a bag over each suspect’s head and wrapped it with tape. Agents then tied each suspect’s hands behind his back, smashed his fingers, and beat him on his neck, feet and kidney,” Jarrod Lopes, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in New York, told The Moscow Times by email Tuesday. Lopes said members of the Investigative Committee in Surgut “poured water over the men, shocked them with a stun gun in the anus area—gradually increasing the strength of the shock.” The victims were reportedly asked to disclose information about their meetings and leadership during the interrogation.
  2. 37C in Perth today but I'm not complaining when I hear what you guys are going through with the cold and the snow. Please stay safe and warm. xx
  3. (Jeremiah 31:3) ....... “I have loved you with an everlasting love. That is why I have drawn you to me with loyal love*. (the ftn of this verse reads: *have continued to show loyal love to you). (Psalm 100:3) Know that Jehovah is God. He is the one who made us, and we belong to him. We are his people and the sheep of his pasture. (Psalm 34:18) Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.
  4. How awesome for you. We had the last one so we can't be greedy. We must let others share in the spectacle.
  5. Is this a particularly English thing? I drive myself mad sometimes so I feel very sorry for those who have to put up with me.
  6. I am so sorry. That is a beautiful photo to remember your time together.
  7. I seem to have quoted this in my last comment .. but then didn't actually comment on it. Duh!! LOL That looks like what we call wasps in England. I got stung by one once when I was a child. It swelled up massively and was scarlet for about 3 weeks. They are certainly evil. We don't have that particular sort here though we do have some other yellow and black nasties.
  8. Yeah nah to the tarantula. We have things like bird eating spiders here though not in suburbia unlike pretty large Huntsman that seem quite drawn towards people and they are truly horrifying to me. I have lived up in the tropics and among other things there are flying cockroaches up there big enough to put saddles on ... but we won't take this discussion any further .. it's giving me the eebie jeebies just thinking about these things. Snakes though I do not have a problem with. If I see a travelling snake show I always go for a hold and if I had the time and money I wouldn't mind having a pet snake. Not that I would confront a King Brown or a Tiger snake if I came across it in the wild.
  9. Thank you for the warning. I scrolled past that very quickly with my eyes shut. I don't know what possessed me to move to a country that has the quantity, sort and size of arachnids we have here because I am definitely phobic. I can't kill them all though, just the really big scary ones and the poisonous ones and I get my neighbour to come and collect the others. We have one here called the Orb and they are really quite beautiful, each one is quite different from other ones .. though I still give them a wide berth.
  10. https://themoscowtimes.com/news/russia-named-list-50-countries-in-which-christians-face-persecution-64171 Russia has been ranked among the world’s 50 countries in which Christians face the most prosecution for the first time in seven years. Persecution is escalating. This year's number is up from last year's 215 million--30 million more lives at risk. https://twitter.com/OpenDoors/status/1085632801033080832?ref_src=twsrc^tfw While churches of the Russian Orthodox denomination are sponsored by the state, Open Doors said unregistered evangelical churches “may face obstructions in the form of surveillance and interrogation.” Jehovah’s Witnesses faced nationwide raids and arrests after the Russian Supreme Court declared the organization extremist in 2017. A package of anti-terrorist laws introduced in July 2016 have also made the missionary work of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, known as the Mormons, next to impossible in Russia. Open Doors said Russia’s increasingly strained ties with the West “will particularly affect those Christians who belong to denominations regarded as Western.”
  11. I understand your reference to attitude and how it influences thinking but I don't think you can compare apostasy to unhappiness in the workplace, where you need to go along with company policy and often have to put up with bullying and harrassment just to keep your job. How do you know these people thought it was a wonderful place to work before they left? The article doesn't say that and if they were so happy and it was so wonderful, why did they leave? A massive company like FB will always 'own' its employees and dictate how they will act and think. What do you think would have been the result of them speaking out while still employees?
  12. Normally shown in a similar way to Gilead .... 2 or 3 parts over the month. You got there a nanosecond before me. 🙂
