How did you feel when you found out Jehovah's Witnesses were a cult?
sick, scared, eager, nervous, unsure, curious, angry, regretful, hurt, and crippled
2.) Did you believe it was a cult?
I argued against them being a cult just as vehemently and effectively as slimboyfat on his best day.
3.) What research did you do in order to prove whether or not the Witnesses were a cult?
I knew that cults intentionally deceive people in order to achieve their aims. I knew that Jehovah's Witnesses promote themselves as the ONLY source of truth and that adherents MUST stay with them in order to gain salvation.
Disregarding ALL the other markers (for the moment) I decided to find out whether there was intentional deception in the doctrine of Jehovah's Witnesses. After finding many examples of intentional deception (which I will be happy to discuss with anyone by PM), the only conclusion that I could possibly come to was that they are a cult.
They place themselves as the ONLY source of truth and the ONLY means for salvation, while intentionally lying. They lie to new converts and aged die-hards alike. And worse still, they teach the converts to lie for them. What else could you call it?
slimboyfat, whenever you want to discuss the intentional deceits I found and attempt to explain why they are not intentional deceits at all, just let me know.
