Hi, I'm new

Hi,

I just joined today.

I was invited to this site from a person who befriended me from JW Support Forums.

I know first impressions are important; but I have somewhat of a humorous side, so I created a picture of myself for those who care to see: http://richkelsey.org/CONE%20HEAD.htm

No. I am not from France.

I look forward to getting to know some of you here. As an author, I have written various articles. Please check out Joseph Smith on Trial if you care to have some fun reading:

God bless you all,

Rich Kelsey

Yeah Rich, that was a funny picture :D And welcome to the Paradise Cafe.

I want to thank you for posting a link to that article instead of doing a cut and paste. It sure saves on band width on our little site.

We have a section of the board for other religions if that would be suitable for some of your thoughts. We're mostly JW's, exJW's and those who have moved beyond. Almost all of us have somewhat of a JW background.

How about telling us a little about yourself. What prompts your writing for instance. How did you arrive at this point in your spiritual journey?

Love to hear from you,

Rez :welcome:

Hi Rez!

I almost became a JW; you can read my story on this link: http://richkelsey.org/PROPOSAL.htm

Just scroll down on the page to the sub-title:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I was told about this site in an e-mail that I received this morning from a person who is a member here and also at JW Support Forums where I fellowship.

I am 55 years old; and, up until a year ago, I had just spent the last 4 years of my life as a musician on a worship team.

I love singing and playing the guitar.

I have a passion for the Word of God and I am totally in love with Jesus Christ.

You may care to read a work or two that I have penned about the JWs?

Here is a link to one good article: http://richkelsey.org/JW%20ARTICLE.htm

I have read some posts here about the Two Witnesses from the Book of Revelation; very interesting stuff.

I am a born again spirit filled Christian.

I came here to fellowship and to listen to some stories, perhaps join in from time to time.

I may not continue putting up links to my site: so, for those who care to read any articles that I have penned, just remember my user name.

And, I will send anyone who asks a free PDF of my end-time Christian book; just e-mail me. There is no obligation and I will not keep your e-mail address

Hi Bangalore!

Thanks for the welcome.

Over the last few months I have researched the Watch Tower doctrine of Christ’s “return.”

I wonder how many people who consider themselves Jehovah’s Witnesses have read The Object and Manner of Our Lord’s Return?
My two year stint with the Jehovah’s Witnesses at a time when I was searching for answers (in my late teens and early twenties) has had an impact upon me to this day. And, even though I thought I knew much about the subject of Christ’s return I recently found that there was more for me to learn.

After reading “Object and Manner” again for the third time; “The Time Is At Hand,” and countless Watch Tower magazines I gained a better understanding of how the “presence of Christ” doctrine has changed over the years.

An active JW called a work of mine “terrible lies” so, based upon that review I think I did well with my treatise:
http://www.mmoutreachinc.com/jehovahs_wi...CLAIMS.pdf

I’m working on a Mormon article now.
I just thought I would say hi; I’ll be reading and visiting here in the meantime.
