      Yes i would be happy to, i have a place where i store alot of stuff..

      I thought i may share a little about myself so here goes...

      Actually, a little bit about me. I started taking an interest in religion in my 20s, i got caught up with the Jehovah's Witnesses where i studied with them to the point of becoming an Unbaptized Publisher, that means that i went out in the field service knocking on doors talking to people, well and getting the negativity with it all also. After a while i started hearing some things about the Watchtower and started to investigate the organization, a big no no. and if found out you get dragged before a committee of Elders. I suddenly realized i was in a cult as to which they are but it took me almost 20 years to get over the psychological impact of their lies. The main thing was i started to study the Greek interlinear and saw where their Bible was all mistranslated and delved more and more into it.

      I got so confused because of the brainwashing tactics they use i decided to pray. So one day i got down on my knees and prayed to God, i still get goose bumps remembering this. I asked God straight out if the Watchtower were his only true organization on Earth and if it was where he wanted me to be. Not long after this, i got told about JWFacts, JWSurvey and all the you tube videos about the coverups and court cases that the Watchtower to this day are still trying to cover up and getting massive fines for what they have done. That is when i saw the translations in the Greek against their Bible. Giving way to doubt i prayed to God again and asked him if it was him directing me away from the Organization. I thought that perhaps Satan had heard my prayer and took the opportunity to lead me away from God.

      Anyway not to long after that i was doing some study on the Gospels and i can across Luke 11:11,12. And at that moment i froze, it was like i couldn't move, tears started to run down my cheeks but i wasn't crying, and then thei feeling like millions of tinkles and a slight numbness went from my head down. And this feeling was so overwhelming, and it was like the feeling was telling me that God had answered my prayer. This i tell you is the truth on that day this happened. After that i stopped going to the meetings, i started to read the Bible for myself and not the JWs Bible but i have the NKJV and a few other Bibles and the Septuagint that i am reading now.

      I am yet to be baptized and i don't go to a Church as i don't feel i need to, Churches today can be corrupted an all through history that proves it to be, Christ is Head of the Church, we are the Church, all the believers in Christ. But where i am i don't have association of fellow believers. Anyway that is my story so far in my journey to seek God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength

      Welcome
      If you want to rile people up then go to a Christian site and give God ALL the glory for your salvation.

      Hi, Mozzie. I hope you find a congregation to join or at least whose services you can attend. Any study of the Bible shows that that is close to essential for believers.

      Mozzie, it sounds as if you feel the call to be baptized yet there are conflicts that are prohibiting you at this time. Don't let those things stop you Even if you have to travel to find a good church to be baptized in, it will be worth it!
