Jehovahs witnesses are marked the highest on the graft at 89% who feel strong sense of gratitude at least once a week! I really enjoyed this! More proof we have it right! 😁

Thanks for the link …

According to that site we share the highest on the graph with the Mormons... both at 89% … Interesting and refreshing on the stats for those with a sense of gratitude

I am surprised that Jehovah's Witnesses rank only 89%. We, alone, understand our reasons for gratitude. We understand what the ransom means for our present and future. We are personally acquainted with Jehovah and He personally knows us. Why would we not rank 100%?

 

Well... I know I don't necessarily feel grateful about *anything* 100% of the time.  I would never believe a poll that showed anyone felt 100% one thing or anything about anyone, I don't think.

 

Gratitude, in the minds of the people asked, may not necessarily have to do with the things you mentioned, either.  They may be thinking of their own personal circumstances and not be entirely grateful for them.  :shrug:

It’s interesting but I wouldn’t put too much stock in poles. Next week there may be another pole putting jw in an unfavorable light.

I can accept that 100% is not really possible. Perhaps some of the participants were thinking more on present problems and personal doubts and conditions. Burt, you have made a good point also. I think some of the participants may be apostates, too. Anything that Satan has access to will be tainted.

I think gratitude (for Jehovah's love) comes first. It prompted us to become Jehovah's Witnesses... :)

Yes I think so.. 

1st question for approval for baptism is. . On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will? 

Second question is irrelevant without yes to the first :) we dedicate ourselves because we love him.
