Jehovahs wittness single dating site
Yeah I've actually been reading up on Jehovah's Witnesses because we have some that come to our door and me and my roomie have been talking to them regularly.I'm actually astonished at many of their beliefs, and you're right, ever since the problem arose with people leaving the JW's because none of their "predictions" came true, they started this disfellowshipping thing.I know the abuse they must certainly put up with and because of that, I feel those who do go door-to-door must have strong religious conviction.Maybe far more than the rest of us who just go to church a couple times a week and don’t attempt to witness to others about our belief because we feel church attendance is enough to do for our of the difficulty with Jehovah's Witnesses, is that before you join, they're all smiles and joy filled and kind and accommodating.After joining, you become treated somewhat more as a number, or as a unit for reeling in more converts.The intentions of Jehovah's Witnesses on the most part are good.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. The JW mindset does affect his relationships in that if one does not agree with the JW interpretations, he will be offended.Hey all, just curious how many ex Jehovah's Witnesses on here, and seeing as I have your attention, how do you feel that past "way of life" has affected how you are in a relationship, what you look for in a partner, traditions, etc.. These kinds of religions don't usually look kindly on different points of view; so I imagine all ex-JWs would need to examine that about themselves and see that it is okay to have a personal interpretation and relationship with God.
While I would never become a Jehovah's Witness; mainly because I'm happy with the church I do belong to, and also because I do not hold with many of their beliefs and ways.
I was a very loyal JW, raised our 3 kids as such, have family on both sides still active, and very shallow in their thinking.
My x left the JW's before the childrne and I did, and I was a single mom for 9 years before I was dfed. Yes, now after being 'out' for 3 years has been very challenging, and reading the websites set up by former JW's, how things worked for them when in, you learn over time to think for yourself, and your eyes are opened to realize its not just you who were judged by men.
For example, they quote many of the founding fathers to prove that the Trinity cannot be true, however, those exact same writings they quoted from, specifically point out there being three persons in one God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
The point is, JW's SHOULD be allowed to read the founding fathers, since considering they quote them in JW literature, there should be no reason it's considered "anti-JW" material. just let them read it for themselves and it will all be very obvious... I still hold some of the beliefs to heart, but after being a JW for so long, and seeing all that a person does as a long time member, things swept under the rug, not to question, how that 3 men, (elders) can decide if a person is repentant or not is just wrong.
Contrary to what I felt and knew in my heart that I was forgiven.
