Jehovah`s Witness/Friendly Warning..Why Important!
Hi Bro. Eddie,
Sister T here, you asked some very good questions and made some very good points regarding Ms. Dee, and I truly hope she see's the error of her ways before it's too late. You are trying to help her see, either she will take heed or she'll continue on as she has been. I hope she takes heed.
Prov. 12:15 "The way of the foolish one is right in his own eyes, but the one listening to counsel is wise"
As Christians we are admonished:
Phil. 2:4 "keeping an eye, not in personal interest upon just YOUR own matters, but also in personal interest upon those of the others."
I just want to make something clear that may not be understood as to WHY what Ms. Dee is doing is wrong from two stand points, a Witness viewpoint, and just a human viewpoint.
It's not because she doesn't agree with some of our doctrines, a lot of people don't, they don't have to.
But why be a hypocrite? Being one way at the Hall and hiding who she really is there, but then coming on different forums and talking against, complaining, backstabbing, making fun, gossiping, and mocking etc.
That's wrong in life period, not just regarding JW's doctrines.
For Mr. Holland to see nothing wrong with what Ms. Dee is doing, to defend her and speak nothing about her actions as being wrong, not correcting her actions, just shows his true intentions, as he portrays himself as being an advocate for truth, does he not? But we know better.
When it comes to others not telling the truth regarding JW's, Mr. Holland overlooks it, but if he thinks a JW lied then he's all over it.
We know without a doubt that Ms. Dee does NOT believe our teachings, we have her own words saying she does not. And we have her own words saying she goes out in field service, she speaks about experiences out in service.
So in order to go out in field service a person has to qualify to become an unbaptized publisher, they are asked questions and would have to state that they AGREE with our beliefs in order to qualify.
So since Ms. Dee is going out in service, BUT she really does NOT agree with our beliefs as we so plainly see from her own posts, then she had to LIE in order to qualify to go out in the ministry.
This is OK with Mr. Holland (Mr. Jones too obviously) who claims to be so much about being truthful (maybe that only applies when it comes to non witnesses)....why isn't he counseling Ms. Dee as he so vehemently charges that you counsel someone? Why doesn't he do what he claims you aren't doing? See the double standards.
He'll defend Ms. Dee in her wrongs, because she is against us. But when it comes to something about him or what he thinks, then he's all about truth.
We all know why the opposers and apostates are here, discredit, misguide and out right lie.
And like you said Bro Eddie, his words betray him. I'm not going to get into all the back and forth with Mr. Holland or Mr. Jones, as I'm sure Mr. Holland will break this down with his normal rants and raves, but this is strictly for ones to understand why what Ms. Dee is doing is wrong from many standpoints.
I implore Ms. Dee to really look at what she's doing, not only about her indecisiveness, (James 1:5-8) but about being a true friend period to people who have taken her in so to speak.
Prov 17:17 "A true companion is loving all the time, and is a brother that is born for when there is distress."
Prov. 12:18 "There exists the one speaking thoughtlessly as with the stabs of a sword, but the tongue of the wise ones is a healing"
She speaks about the "them and us" but that's what she does herself. She groups the "Witnesses" into one category, while putting us down as a whole and individually, then goes out in service talking and smiling with my brothers and sisters in their faces, then secretly mocking and trying to find fault with everything they/we do. Is that loving?
1 John 4:7,8 "Beloved ones, let us continue loving one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born from God and gains the knowledge of God. 8 He that does not love has not come to know God, because God is love"
Tons of post-its in her Bible that supposedly prove us wrong. Her explanations are so far off, it's truly sad.
It's one thing to not believe, it's another to be two faced and fake it. That's the problem, be true to yourself and the ones you're smiling at in their faces, if you don't believe Ms. Dee, go your way.
Why play this dangerous game that will lead to you ultimately losing out on a grand privilege, even if you do fool them and get baptized, once again, like you already know, and stated, you have an accounting to God, he's watching your antics, and even from a perspective of not being a witness, do you feel your behavior is good? Do you feel that tearing down people who think you are their friend and making fun, mocking, gossiping, and lying is OK? (1 Tim 5:13, 1 Tim 3:11; Titus 2:2-5; Rev. 21:8)
Prov. 13:3 “The one guarding his mouth is keeping his soul. The one opening wide his lips—he will have ruin.”
Why are we talking about it? Because right is right and wrong is wrong. Thanks Bro Eddie G.
Nicely put and lovingly said Sister Tee!
It's now up to Ms. Dee to decide which direction to take.
Should she listen to the appostate and the opposser?
Or change her ways and present herself to the brothers and sisters in all honesty and truthfulness of heart.
It's up to her now, hopefully she will follow this advice:
“Let [YOUR] love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is wicked, cling to what is good.” (Romans 12:9)
As to the opposers, ridiculers and appostates, I don't want to even mention their name nor give them a platform to spew their deadly venom.
But all I can say to them is this:
“... they are promising them freedom, [yet] they themselves are existing as slaves of corruption. For whoever is overcome by another is enslaved by this one.” (2 Peter 2:19)
Agape Sister Tee.
May Jah bless you.
