RE: Hello to all

Thanks for welcome folks,

Just out of interest, is there a way I can change my user name from Sean T to Sean (leaving out the T). I have emailed admin about this, but am not getting an answer back about this. If i cant change it, fair enough, will need to make do with what I have got.

RE: Hello to all

Hi sean ....:hibye:

I can give you the quick version ... ;)


When you have elders 'out to take away your good name' ... and which they succeeded ... sometimes you did feel 'bruised' ... but because I wholehearted love my God and want to serve him ... I knew that they couldn't 'break' me if I remained steadfast and pure in my heart and intentions to 'obey God as ruler rather than man' ...

my name used to be 'bruisedreednotbroke' based on the scripture at Isaiah 42:3 ...

3 No crushed reed will he break; and as for a dim flaxen wick, he will not extinguish it. In trueness he will bring forth justice.

(ASV) A bruised reed will he not break, and a dimly burning wick will he not quench: he will bring forth justice in truth.


Then when we 'moved' in here I shortened it to make it easier for everyone to type ... and then really shortened it with just the 'BR'!

My family were going through a very difficult time looking for justice amid lies and cover-ups and the going was long (over 12 years) of struggling all the way to the GB for help ... but no help came ... at least from MEN ...

I prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed :pray: :pray: :pray: some more for answers and direction ... asking my father to see that justice win out ... but it did not in the way I thought ...

One night as I lay praying I finally realized I had received my answer from my prayers by the very silence and lack of support and help from the 'slave' was the answer ...

There could be no help from someone who could not help ... who did not have the truthful answers (and even based on all the literature from themselves 'justice' could have been done) and aid from those 'sheperds' of 'feeding food at the right time' because they did not have the answers and was not a 'hiding place or shelter from the wind and rain' ...

After realizing that ... and continuing my studies in order to remain spiritually awake and alert I began to more and more discover the TRUE FREEDOM that comes from following in Christ's footsteps and my faith and love and trust in my father and his Son grew exponentially more deeper and real and unbreakable the more I had to rely on them for my nourishment!

Indeed ambrosia-like meals ... banquets really ... were placed before me everyday and I have not lacked for anything as my God promised ...

He has also blessed ALL OF US here by associcating together, upbuilding one another, encouraging one another ... all the more so!

I hope you find the love and brotherly fellowship here with real true Christians who seek to serve in spirit and truth ... are free to ask the hard questions and not be ridiculed or thought of as weak or independent or apostate or whatever ... and while there is no answers to some questions ... YET ... there is much joy and brain sharpening that goes on as we seek to sort out the true from the false ...

Looking forward to hearing your story as well! :love:

I said I'd keep it short and I have already blathered on too much already ... which you'll notice if you read some of my stuff ... :redface: but my family here seem to love me anyway and in spite of my rambling keyboard! :post:

christian love to you and yours, BR :sheepy: :bouncyhearts:

Yes there is no Sean without a T so Sean may well be possible.

Thankyou for your story Brusied Reed, and sorry for not replying sooner.

I can see that you have had quite a time of it in the way you were treated. It is interesting how the elders and the GB did not have the answers you needed at the right time, 'the hiding place or shelter from the wind and rain....'.

The stress placed upon you during these years must have been horrendous. Placing your whole trust in imperfect men will only lead to disappointment (Psalm 146:3). Sadly, it took me almost 15 years 'in the truth' to realise this. Though we have been taught to adhere to this scripture in connection with putting our trust in 'wordly people'; we are taught to place our whole trust in a body of imperfect men (the GB) WHO CAN DO NO WRONG; yet they claim they are not infallible?? I like you, also placed too much trust in certain elders ( imperfect men), only to be very disappointed in the unloving, uncaring attitude of 'some'.

That is not to say, that there are no loving shepherds out there. Though imperfect, there have been some outstanding loving individuals that I would truly call shepherds (though imperfect), despite some of the errors they are taught by the GB.

I also, like you, am enjoying true freedom in following the teachings and footsteps of Christ; and am building a much stronger relationship with my Father (YHWH) and his beloved son Jesus (Yeshua).

Also, you are right that it is good to associate here, by discussing some difficult questions to scriptures that are a little obscure at this time, but will be clearer in the future; yet we can do so without the fear of being looked upon as being weak, apostate etc....and can be sharpened by what we may learn from each other.

Thanks once again bruised reed. You didnt ramble on at all. I really enjoyed what you wrote and can see it was very much from the heart.

Christian love

Sean

Hi Vicky,
that would be great if you can change my user name to 'Sean'.

I would be very grateful if you do this.

RE: Hello to all

Hey br. Sean ... :hibye:

One thing in my (our) 'trials by fire' is that the unexpected deep spiritual growth I experienced was truly amazing and faith strenghtening!

In spite of being 'thrown out of the synagogue' and thus alienated from my brothers ... for now ... the RICH BLESSINGS I have experienced has indeed given much JOY ...!

I so yearn for my brothers and sisters to 'see' and 'feel' what I do now ... but it can only come at 'their' time ... as they walk on their own particular spiritual journey!

Even when I was an active witness and full time pioneer, one thing I always did when I didn't understand something or some new point or understanding was being taught was ask questions :scratchhead: in my personal studying :read:either to myself:huh: and then in prayer to my heavenly Father :pray: or an elder :albert:

I remember for example when the change about the the people of Sodom and Gomorrah came about whether they would be resurrected or not ... I didn't 'agree' (bad me) with the change in the Live Forever book on this and so I skipped over it when I would study with people in service ... and then not too long later they changed it back again ... :shocked: and of course the 'eye of the needle' explanation ... and many others ...

If the 'holy spirit' were indeed letting the GB have insight as they say they have and as they have taken on the role of being our 'spiritual guides' ... I would think that in these SIMPLE things they would get it right the FIRST time ... and if I myself weren't granted having Jehovah's spirit 'enlighten me through pray and study' then how did 'I' know when they went through a period of being 'wrong' in their understanding ...

I am not saying I was 'better' than them ... just that our brothers and sisters CAN have understanding ... that they don't have to rely on MEN to explain things of a spiritual nature ... and that if something doesn't sound or feel right to them ... then they should not just blindly go along with it just because it is coming from the 'slave' and since their are God's channel they 'must' know what they are talking about ...

Anyway, don't know how I ended up at this tangent ... maybe because I was reading some of the comments on the Watchtower thread ... :love:

This freedom in Christ is a beautiful thing isn't it!! :rose: :rose: :rose:

May we also be free from our shackles as we continue to walk the path our master trod!

Christian love to you and yours my brother! BR :sheepy: :bouncyhearts:
