Setting The Record Straight (and) Sorry Al, Sincerely

Well, It has been quite a long time since I posted on this blog and there are many things that have changed and or become more clear since then.

Where do I begin? Well, as most of you would already know; e-watchman has been exposed as an apostate and Timothy (pray to Jesus) Kline AKA Morloc has been exposed as e-watchman's partner. I dare say that if EW had dumped Timothy; nobody would have seen him as an apostate. It really was EW's assotiation with Timothy that made most people realize that the whole e-watchman site was just an apostate deal.

Of course this leaves me with some explaining to do. I said many things on the discussion board which I now regret. So there is a lot for me to say. I need to make some retractions, corrections and apologies. I really desire to set the record straight regarding the things I said, what I meant when I said those things, and how my viewpoint may have changed. In regard to some of the changes of viewpoint I have had, I would also like to make an explanation of reasons why I changed my views along with associated events which may have changed my viewpoints.

Why would my viewpoint or changes in my viewpoint be important enough for me to publish changes in it? Well, my viewpoint is not important. However, I epressed a lot of things publicly on the discussion boards, and if anything I said caused anybody hurt, spiritual harm or stumbled them or influenced anybody to hold a wrong viewpoint and attitude, then I want to make my retractions, apologies and explanations in the hope of righting the wrongs I committed. I do indeed feel that I committed some wrongs by expressing my mistaken views. So now I want to correct myself publicly so that I can reprove myself before all onlookers as it were, so that my mistaken ideas will be publicly retracted and I will have publicly repudiated those mistakes and thereby publicly disavowed such views and attitudes.

That is not to say that I have changed my views on everything, but certainly on a number of issues which are important to Jehovah's Witnesses. I suppose there are a number of issues regarding which I didn't express myself clearly and consequently my views on those things are not clearly understood.

I know I was quite a controversial figure for a while, and e-watchman and Timothy Kline blamed me very much for their loss of membership and their exposure as apostates. I did all I could to make sure they were not allowed to mislead JW's away from the basic truths of the Bible which we have learned as Jehovah's Witnesses. I must say however, e-watchman's accusations that I had taken over Al's board along with 3W were totally incorrect. I also must admit the very idea of me taking over Al's DB was really, really funny.

I must apologise to Al at this point for the things I said to him on The Cafe. Al, I am sorry. I had some very mistaken views at that time. I really believed that the Cafe was the place to go for Witnesses who were needing help with the difficult things going on in the Org. I hope you understand that I am sorry for my harsh words to you and I apologise for the hurt my words caused you. Sincerely.

That is just for a start. I have a lot more explaining to do and many more apologies and retractions to make. If you are bored from reading it I understand, but I still must go on. Besides if you do read on you may find me apologising for what I said to you too. Al came first because I really gave him a hard time and I needed to tell him that many times I have tried to figure out how to make a real good apology. I suppose it would have been better if I had not said those things in the first place but if it matters to anyone I have learned a few things from my mistakes and God willing I will try to do better in the future.

God willing, I will be adding to this post (soon I hope). There is much more to say but my time has run out for today. Fred

Getting Started

I guess that this blog will be a supplement to whatever my friends on the web see me saying or doing. Knowing that my foremost interest in life is Jehovah God, His Son Jesus Christ and the Kingdom; you can expect that I am seeking to find my way there. I am looking for other Kingdom seekers to associate with and I feel that we must all take on whatever responsibilities we are given with our best efforts.

As far as Kingdom responsibilities are conserned I believe that every servant of Jehovah is given opportunities. Whether big or small opportunities, we will want to percieve what the opportunities are Jehovah has given us for sacred service. Sometimes the opportunity is just a chance to say a kind word to someone who needs it. Other times it may be necessary to stand up in defence of someone weak.

I believe that we all are responsible to do whatever we can to help our sisters and brothers. This is a very difficult time given the fact that we are facing the failure of the legal entity which we have used to direct us in seeking Bible truth, to coordinate our Kingdom preaching efforts.

The apostasy we have seen on the part of the leaders in this legal entity was spoken of in prophesy. Now we must decide what to do about it. I am recommending to all that we keep our senses. Don't just throw away your deep bible knowledge, nor your grasp of the basic bible truths. Let's not allow wolves among the sheep to lead you away to the very same pagan teachings and practises which you left for the truth in the first place.

Soon I believe the faithful Witnesses of Jehovah will be finding direction, even though the WT seems to be on the brink of a great crash. We see the corruption of the WT leaders and we are astonished at the things they have done, including the NGOs and silent lambs scandals plus too many bad things to mention here. But don't forget. Jehovah knows about all of it. He knew before it occured just as the scripture at Mal 3:15-18 says:

And at present we are pronouncing presumptuous people happy. Also, the doers of wickedness have been built up. Also, they have tested God out and keep getting away.’”
16 At that time those in fear of Jehovah spoke with one another, each one with his companion, and Jehovah kept paying attention and listening. And a book of remembrance began to be written up before him for those in fear of Jehovah and for those thinking upon his name.
17 “And they will certainly become mine,” Jehovah of armies has said, “at the day when I am producing a special property. And I will show compassion upon them, just as a man shows compassion upon his son who is serving him. 18 And YOU people will again certainly see [the distinction] between a righteous one and a wicked one, between one serving God and one who has not served him.”

We won't want to lose faith in Jehovah just because men fail. He will make provision for those who keep thinking on His name and seeking his Kingdom. Just as He promised those who keep the faith and keep thinking on His Name: 17 “And they will certainly become mine,” Jehovah of armies has said.

So then, this is what we are really seeking; to be written down in Jehovah's book of rememberance for those in fear of Jehovah and for those thinking on his name. To that end, I say KEEP SEEKING THE KINGDOM even if the WT has stopped seeking it. Don't give up the truth. Don't be mislead. At this difficult time there are those wolves in sheep's clothing who would get you to throw away all the precious truths you have learned. They would try to mislead you back into those God dishonoring practices which you left behind when you first learned Jehovah's name and about His Kingdom by Christ Jesus. Next time I post here I hope to expand on the activities of such wolves.

Much Love To ALL My Sisters and Brothers, Fred
