    I don't mean physically i mean mentaly and spiritually. Mentaly because i was told that i have autism i was bummed out for a week.

    Spiritaly because although i am seeking more christian religon and beliefs i feel like i am in quick sand and slowy sinking while i find something to set me free . I say this cause i still stuck in the Jw religion and still scared to leave (despite wanting to leave).

    I feel like i am harming myself by not making the decison to give up the jw lifestyle and religon and seek more christian things.

    Bonus post 3rd watchtower meeting. Nothing special bout the talk just jws version of the talk. Wt study was more hypocritical than the last two. Basically talking avout how the jws need have facts. Avoid "apostate sites" and that satan is the only enemy of the jws and that you are either on jws or your ob the apostate side with satan.

    So yeah sorry for not posting for while had the hurricane here and was not really motivated to post anything.
    I been reading john i am on chapter 20.

    Dear Mr. Michael, I thank God that you are reading the word of God, and I pray that it becomes the catalyst, or thing God uses to direct you to receive Jesus as your Savior.

    I came out of Catholicism knowing little of nothing of the word of God, especially since sermons were given in Latin, and when asked if I was saved, I didn’t even know what the person was asking me.


    Since you’ve began in the gospel of John, I know you’ve already read John 3:16. I use the KJV version of the bible, and it says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Is this you yet?

    What is salvation more than being given eternal life, delivered forever from the penalty of sin, and as we read in Joh 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life (and that is right now), and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    Well, what do I have to do to become saved?
    Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?

    Have you ever once called for God’s help? What do you think? Can it really be that easy? YES, and there are other illustrations of ways we can experience this.

    Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. What is that gift? Rom 6:23 . . the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

    What of Act 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
    Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (Those of your house can be saved the same way.)

    For now the last other way I’ll list in being saved is told us in:
    Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    To my new friend, and one loved by God enough that Jesus came to die for you that you would have life, does any of the above scriptures give you hope of who you can be in Jesus? Just call out to our LORD and expect Him to make it clear to you.
    Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

    May God bless this to you in Jesus’ name. Amen. :)

    Sorry to hear about this MM, but there is no question that you are in a serious spiritual battle for your soul. But you are on the right track since you are reading the Word of God, and God is with you as you read His Word.

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but the will to act in spite of fear. What you have to do is make a very clean break, and as I suggested, move away from this toxic environment to another city with a sound Bible-preaching Church.

    I do not know what jw's teach....However...
    If something is tugging at your heart...
    Listen.

    Jesus' basic message is simple;
    He IS the truth, the Word of God. Trust Him.
    Scripture is Knowledge. Read it, Believe it.
    The Understanding of the Knowledge WILL be given you By the Lord Himself.

    Ask Him. Be patient. You shall receive.

    Be well.
    God Bless,
    Taken

    We cannot help you much Sean ( M.M.)
    But we can PRAY and prayer is powerful.

    Yes, you have been missing for a while...but at least you are still "fighting the good fight"....
    I am praying that you can come into real peace and the 'fight' become joy as you learn to Trust our heavenly Father.
    Try to forget which denomination is right or wrong...just concentrate on God Himself, not on man's religion...it gets you all confused.

    God bless you ... angel hugs....Helen

    Do not think less of yourself because you were told you have autism. They are not God, and can not decide your limits.
    I can do all things Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

    FWIW: I've been diagnosed with high-functioning autism myself, and have several friends who very much are in that boat.

    It's nothing to be ashamed about at all-- just like having green eyes or being left-handed. It's just a part of you.
