|Religion / Re: Why Don’t Jw Fathers Sit For Their Daughter Who Gets Married To Non Witness? by 21Ogodol: 12:43am On Sep 22, 2023
Now I have a question, How old is Jehovah’s Witness?over a hundred years right? And Jesus died over 2000 years ago! So u mean to tell me that before Jehovah’s Witness came to existence even the Apostles didn’t worship the true God yet they wrote the Bible, and it’s only those in Jehovah’s Witness that is serving the true God !!

|Religion / Why Don’t Jw Fathers Sit For Their Daughter Who Gets Married To Non Witness? by 21Ogodol: 10:19pm On Sep 15, 2023
A family friend who’s a Jehovah’s Witness, said Jehovah’s Witness parents are allowed to perform rites for their children even thou they choose to marry a non witness, that it’s not against the law of the organization and any man who choose not to sit(be it an Elder or a member) is acting so based on his personal belief and not under Jehovah’s Witness.
I have seen cases of daughters getting married and their fathers not attending their traditional marriage or even accepting to collect dowery because she dint marry a witness and he cannot partake in her sin.
One girl said the Dad asked her spouse to first become a witness and get baptized before he can accept her as a son-inlaw and many more like that …
Now this our family friend who is saying it’s not against the law of Jehovah’s Witness is getting me confused and leaving me with so many questions 🧐🧐
If it’s not a against them, then how come so many fathers ignore or even disowned their daughters for taking this step?
How come they all choose to be wicked even thou their organization accepts such?
And those fathers that sits for their daughters who marry non witness, do they get summoned or disfellowshipped?
I need answers pls … someone help me out

|Career / Re: 10 Mistakes You Are Currently Making That Might Damage Your Chance Of Success by 21Ogodol: 11:39pm On Jun 29, 2021
[quote author=Kinute post=103194763]This is going to be a very quick, straight-to-the-point post and no unnecessary explaination.
And to prove it-
1. SHORT HAND
If u still type lik dis n u tink typn sentences correctly is wsting of tym or some swag, you say thnx like dis and ask questions with y, wht, etc.
Then you need to stop. You might have damaged your chances of people seeing the value in you because of annoying, hard-to-read short-hand sentences.
Wake up, we are no longer in the era of 2go.
Your friends might not care because they know you.
Don't let people see you as immature and valueless before you get a chance to prove otherwise.
2. YOU WANT TO DO IT BY YOURSELF
Maybe you are an introvert, shy or your ego is just as big as the big head on your neck, the truth still remains you cannot live life on your own.
Don't make this mistake.
Find support systems.
There is a reason why suicide cases in Nigeria are consistently rising. People have replaced communal values with solitude and seclusion.
Apart from the damage it does to your mental health, it also makes it hard for people to reach out to you when you most need them cos they just assume you are fine.
This is also important in business. Find a partner that compliments you, stop focusing on all that can go wrong if you have a partner.
I stand to be corrected but I believe, whatever can go wrong in your business if you have a partner has a higher chance of going wrong if you are doing it by yourself.
3. NOT BUILDING QUALITY RELATIONSHIPS
This is a sequel to point 2 above.
Build deliberate and strategic relationships. Stop treating people with disdain, and stop looking down on yourself.
Be interested in people, their values, and what they do. Help where you can.
Go to events where the kind of people you want in your life are at.
Think of relationships as investments that can yield better ROI than any other type of investment.
In fact, take a look at your life right now, some of the things you have achieved were through leveraging relationships.
4. YOU ARE NOT SHOWING YOUR VALUE
I struggled with this for years. I was good at a few things but nobody knew. I saw friends I was better than become what I wanted to be. They would even come to me for advice.
Why? Because the little they knew how to do, they shared with the world while I was waiting to be perfect.
Don't do that. Waiting for perfection is just fear masking itself in a way that seems pleasant.
Go out there, show people what you can do, what you are learning how to do, and how you do what you do.
Value can also be just helping others around you achieve something. Value is your usefulness to God, man, and society.
5. YOU DON'T HONOR PEOPLE
This is similar to building relationships but still slightly different.
If I may ask, when was the last time you thanked your parents? Have you ever truly appreciated them for all they have done?
Honor doesn't just stop at our parents though. How about your bosses, your superiors, or even those under you. Have you ever looked them in the eye and say "Thank you for all you do, I value and honor you"
There are many ways you can honor people.
Find a way to honor those that have made an impact in your life.
6. YOU ARE NOT DIFFERENT FROM EVERY OTHER PERSON AROUND YOU
Everyone is starting a poultry business so you start one. Everyone is submitting CVs for jobs so you do the same. People do the same thing over and over again and you jump on the bandwagon, no uniqueness, no differentiation, just copy copy.
Now, I am not saying doing what others are doing is bad, it is not. But find a way to stand out, find a way to be different.
For every business out there, there are 100 ways you can be different. Your job application must not follow every constant application format.
Don't let desperation cause you to be repetitive and redundant. Learn to stand out, learn to be different.
I will talk about this tomorrow.
But every tomorrow is another tomorrow.
Do it now.
It's not easy to overcome fear but overcoming your fear is the only way you can move forward in life.
So many motivational speakers have talked about this and I am no motivational speaker.
9. YOU ARE NOT LEARNING ENOUGH
Reading might be tiring for you but can you at least learn from people that have done it before you. Ask for their help and guidance, watch them as they do what they do, and find ways to do it better.
Google is your friend. Getting a mentor or coach is a better friend and books are your best friends.
Choose your friends wisely.
10. FILL THIS IN YOURSELF
If you are being sincere, you know what is holding you back.
Your guts tell you once you can overcome this thing, you would be able to achieve anything you want. Then overcome it.
But let me burst your bubbles. Excuses don't cut it. Stop making excuses. Making excuses in itself is a mistake.
The excuses you make are scenarios making you mentally lazy.
Wake up. (For lack of better words)
[/quote very true …God help us all
