Jehovah`s Witness/As requestered


I have decided to keep this one private because as I said before I do not want a he said I said situation public on the board.

Your request was

Bob, the situation with Carlos can you cut and paste it for me so that I can see what I wrote. I have a really bad memory because of medication that I take. If I said anything erroneously, please forgive me for my impertinence. In fact, if I have caused anybody to feel uncomfortable or worse yet belittle anybody, please forgive me. There is no excuse for my actions if any one sought a heartfelt answer to a question.

Much of what was said is quoted in the public Question I last sent you. To save copping all the details this is where you will find the whole conversation

At the bottom of the page is button called View Follow Ups  there you will see the exchange we had.

I now have an apology. I  had read several Q & A between Mr Holland and some other Witness which  I had found very unpleasant. I then read your reply to Carlos and that just sent me over the top.  The theological discussions here are most interesting, the manner in which many people partake is disturbing.  When I read your reply to Carlos I just had to say something.  I included you in the unsavory discussion with Mt Holland which was a mistake.  I just assumed by your tone to Carlos that you engaged in the same sort of thing with Mr Holland

Thanks for putting me in my place.

Cut and dry honesty works for me Bob and I appreciated bringing that out to me.

Jehovah disciplines whom he loves.

Proverbs 7:1, "The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of knowledge.+ Wisdom and discipline are what mere fools have despised."

Proverbs 12:1 A lover of discipline is a lover of knowledge,+ but a hater of reproof is unreasoning.+

Hebrews 12: 5 -  “My son, do not belittle [the] discipline from Jehovah,* neither give out when you are corrected* by him;+ 6 for whom Jehovah* loves he disciplines; in fact, he scourges every one whom he receives as a son.”+
7 It is for discipline+ YOU are enduring. God is dealing with YOU as with sons.+ For what son is he that a father does not discipline?+ 8 But if YOU are without the discipline of which all have become partakers, YOU are really illegitimate children,+ and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we used to have fathers who were of our flesh to discipline us,+ and we used to give them respect. Shall we not much more subject ourselves to the Father of our spiritual life* and live?+ 10 For they for a few days used to discipline us according to what seemed good to them,+ but he does so for our profit that we may partake of his holiness.+ 11 True, no discipline seems for the present to be joyous, but grievous;+ yet afterward to those who have been trained by it it yields peaceable fruit,+ namely,* righteousness.+

Bob, I'm going to make this public because it's important to know that no one is above discipline from Jehovah.  Not even me!

Thank you for I am your servant as well as your slave,

With much Philia and Agape,

Brother D. Drake DeLaurentos  

Jehovah`s Witness
