I do seriously feel sorry for those who cannot see the bondage they are under by being in a man made system. I firmly believe that ALL religious systems are man made, that NONE of them have originated from God.
Hi Marina.... sounds like it’s all happening in your part of the world. A big heave-ho.
Amos, my husband would heartily agree with you, re your words.
For me, I’m just puzzled.
I’m not sure what my Father wants of me, in terms of being part of an ‘organised’ church.
I can only say that I was badly burnt ( like so many) by the deceits and the wildly wrong interpretations of the WT.
Christians the world over throughout the many denominations, also get burnt by the same things, along with spiritual abuse and sheer bludgeoning of the soul.
Others find a ‘happy home’ amongst the denominations where they live out reasonably peaceful and fruitful Christian lives. Everyone has such a different experience.
I live in puzzlement and yet wait, breathe, hope and pray.
God is very kind to us.
I have found that he feels very near...
