Jehovah`s Witness/Why pretend?

Question
Is Rando not aware that it is painfully obvious to the readers of this site that he writes most of his questions to himself?  He writes a "question" as if he were some other person and then replies to it.  Constantly.  Why pretend?

Answer
Good afternoon, Brother.  Thank you for inquiring at Allexperts.

You know, I have asked myself the same thing.  I mean, its obvious to anyone with even average intelligence, that he writes himself constantly.  Even his own "friends" know it, and evidently, they view writing yourself a question while trying to make people believe it is someone else, as "honest" and conduct becoming of a Christian.  Most people would simply call it "dishonest" or attempting to deceive.

I honestly don't think the guy has the brains to figure out how foolish he looks.  I actually think that he believes people don't see through his attempted deception, even though as you said, it is "painfully obvious".  There are so many things that give it away, you would think he would try to be more careful when doing it.  You don't know the number of times I can actually predict EXACTLY what he will post next, in response to something I said.  He has become so predictable, I just like to see how often I can get it right.  And I rarely miss.  

I would say that Rando writes 90+% of the questions to himself.  Some are so obvious, that there is no doubt.

And of course, there is today's jewel which enlightened us all about the "Nimrod tree"...lol.

His question total since joining Allexpert, stands at 2,470.  I would guarantee that of that amount, about 1,900+ have been written by him, to himself.  I have written a sizeable portion of the remaining ones, and also some from other JWs who don't care about their own honesty or reputation either.  Most of the ones where a Christian writes to him and shows his absurdity for what it is, do not ever make it to the forum.  I know this, because they generally get sent to me, after he cowardly rejects them.

You..."He writes a "question" as if he were some other person and then replies to it.  Constantly.  Why pretend?"

The simple answer to this question, is that he is so accustomed to lying and practicing deceit, that he simply doesn't even know how to tell the truth any more.  Practicing deception is second-nature to him.

But its more than that...I think it speaks of intense loneliness, and a desperate need to be the center of attention.  I have a Facebook friend who is the same way.  Poor girl, she absolutely cannot stand for a week to go by, that she doesn't post something just to get a compliment, or for someone to notice her.  She even fabricates stories that didn't even happen, just to get attention.  Much like Rando.  He posts things that only make him look ridiculous, because he wants to be recognized.  

I mean, most normal people would not do this.  Can you imagine how stupid I would feel, writing to MYSELF, and telling MYSELF how great, helpful, and Scripturally knowledgeable I am?  Do you know how ridiculous I would feel writing to, and calling MYSELF "Beloved Derrick" ??

Yes, about as ridiculous as Rando looks when he does it.  

But did you see the ridiculous question that he asked himself?  This one...

"And will any of the Baptist/Born Again/Pentecostal/Lutheran/Catholic Christians have the guts to call it Nimrod Tree?"

What a dumb question!  If anyone was using the tree for that pagan purpose, then that is what it would be.  If a person uses a tree for something else, then it is not a "Nimrod Tree".  Evidently this character doesn't understand that an object can be MANY things, depending on what you do with it.  

For example....A Baseball bat.

If I use it to play a game of baseball, its a vital and necessary tool for the game I'm playing.

If I beat someone to death with it, its a murder weapon.

If a ball player signs his autograph on it and hands it to me, its a souvenir.

If I'm freezing to death, its firewood.


The same with a tree....

If I cut it down and carve it into an idol and worship it, then its a false god.

If I climb up in it, its a vantage point.

If I make a tree house in it, its a fun day.

If I cut it up and shape it into a 2X4, its building material.

If I chop it down and split it, its winter heat.

If I cut it down and bring it into my house, its decoration.  And depending on HOW its decorated, and for what purpose, it can be either good or bad.

You know, Bro, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find out that Rando thinks Jeremiah chapter 10, is talking about a Christmas tree...LOL.

Here's the thing....JWs simply are not consistent.  I was in my aunt's home years ago, and it was about this time of year, and she was wanting to discuss the "pagan" and "wicked" Christmas tree.  I happened to notice that, in her den, were house plants EVERYWHERE and even a small tree, in a decorative pot.  I asked her why THAT wasn't the same thing, since having any type of greenery in your home is such a wicked "sin", and has such ties to paganism.  Silence...Never had thought of that, since she was only spouting WT nonsense that she had been programmed to speak, anyway.

It has apparently never occurred to these people, that a Christmas tree is not evil in and of itself, nor is decorating it, nor is ANY specific day, regardless of what some pagans may or may not have done on that day.  This notion that decorating a tree is sinful because pagans did it, is ridiculous!  Pagans did A LOT of things that JWs have no problem doing today.  They seem to forget that a tree was a legitimate creation by God, and there is nothing wrong with admiring it, or enjoying it as a decoration.  Nor is a day automatically cursed, because pagans did something bad on that day.  

The Bible says "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." .  I do believe this would apply to ANY day on the calendar.

And furthermore, they seem to think they have to convince everyone that celebrating pagan days and worshipping trees, is forbidden by God, as if we didn't already know that.  


Did you see this crazy comment, as well?  "It's a deception that members of Christendom fully accept by taking bribes with gifts.  They see no problem with bowing and getting on their knees doing an act of worship to it."

Sir, do you know ANYBODY that has ever bowed down to, and worshipped a Christmas tree?  Anyone?  Who but a crazy person, would even write something like that?

Also, did you catch his comment at the end of his "question"?  


"After all what does this pagan tree have to with Jesus Christ who hate lies?"

But if Rando really believes that Jesus Christ "hates lies", then....Why does he lie?  Isn't that the question of the day?

And actually, that is the real kicker....Someone who practices intentional lying ALL 12 months of the year, and not just at Christmas, telling us about "pagan practices" and things "Jesus hates".  Now, I have no doubt that Rando has been absolutely faithful, and not committed such an atrocity as to go see any Christmas lights.  I have no doubt that he has no role in a Christmas play...anywhere.  His "integrity" also, no doubt, has kept him from dropping even a dime in the Salvation Army bucket when he enters Wal Mart.  Why, I'll bet he doesn't even eat Snickerdoodle cookies during the entire month of December.  And I am quite certain that his "love for truth", has kept him from singing even one verse of "HARK THE HERALD ANGELS SING".  

But the only thing...He's still a liar.  I wonder if he refrains from Christmas activities, if that will get him a free pass on the lying?  I wonder which Jehovah is more upset by....people giving gifts to their loved ones, or Rando's constant bald-faced lies?  

We know for a fact what the Bible says about lying....Good thing Rando doesn't like Christmas, though.


I could go on and on about the ridiculous nature of these "questions to self", but I'll end it for now.  Suffice it to say, you are proof that readers know full well that Rando is desperate in his deception, and is making a fool of himself.  He has nobody fooled, except himself, when he thinks nobody notices.

Thank you for writing with your observations, Sir.  God bless, and take care.

Expertise

I was raised in the religion known as Jehovah`s Witnesses for 13 years. Since becoming a born-again Christian, I have researched extensively this religion, especially their doctrines and their history. I can answer questions about their doctrines from the perspective of Biblical Christianity. To be clear: Jehovahs Witnesses is the religion of my upbringing, though I myself was never baptized into the religion, nor have I ever been considered as a Jehovahs Witness.

Experience

29 years of Biblical research into the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, and how they differ from the teachings of the Watchtower.

Organizations
I would advise each questioner to this forum, to carefully READ the profiles of the various volunteers. There are several such as myself, who are not practicing JWs, but will provide you with an accurate and honest answer, regarding JW teaching. If we don't know the answer, we will try to research and get it for you. There are also some excellent practicing JWs here, who also endeavor to give you a factual and honest answer, based on their point of view. I believe by getting both points of view, the questioner can weigh the evidence for themselves, and make an informed decision. Unfortunately, there are also 3 here who claim to be JWs, but do NOT give honest, or well-researched answers. They will tell you only what they want you to believe, and they often hide facts about the history of their religion, as well as print untruths about other people's beliefs. This is done in an attempt to deceive the unsuspecting reader. It can be easily seen who these 3 are, simply by reading the public posts and "answers" which they write. Their posts will normally be filled with personal attacks, and if you question them about some teaching or aspect of the Watchtower that makes them uncomfortable, they will often reject your question, question your motives for asking it, tell you that you have been reading "apostate" sites, or turn the conversation into an attack on another expert. These ones are better avoided, as there is nothing to be gained by way of positive discussion, as they are not interested in intelligent conversation, or honest dialogue. If after reading the forum, you still have any questions as to who they are, just ask me, and I will be happy to tell you. And I can also provide documentation of their willful dishonesty. One thing is for certain...in a forum where people from both sides claim to be "Christians", there should never be any willful lying. Such ones only create a distraction in the forum, and provide nothing of any real value.

Education/Credentials
High School, some college. Studies of God's Word, the Bible, and how it compares to JW theology. I have found my own personal study and experiences to be far more valuable than any formal education or training. The Bible message is clear...Salvation is ONLY through and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and no religious organization has a thing to do with it. While attendance at a Bible-preaching, Bible-believing church is a must for spiritual growth and fellowship, no church can grant salvation to its members. Nor is joining a particular group a prerequisite for being saved.
