i was deleted as the cobe after i let my adult child move back home and he admitted that he fornicated under my roof while my wife and i where away on a rbc project.
of course the elder mode in me kicked him out of the house.. the elders moved quickly to remove me because i was too involved in "theocractic activities", i had neglected my adult son.. i accepted this primarily because i didn't want to serve with a boe that did not want me.
i was devastated however because it was the only life i knew.

a biology professor is speaking out, demanding an apology and calling for an end to attempts to perpetuate lies against evolution after a statement from him was taken out of context in a creationist article in awake!, a jehovahs witness publication.
he says that a portion of his statement was picked from the whole, leaving a completely different impression from his actual statement.. .
I remember two others who have written the wt and asked to remove the mis-quotes of the wt. These were in my favorites bar from years ago, there must be more on them elsewhere as well.
Dr. Mantey letter- http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/letter_mantey.htm
jw's do not care about mis-quotes or outright lies perpetuated by the wt or at least that has been my experience.

i have former jws looking at jwfacts.com in order to update themselves with what is happening with the religion, so that they can better understand their jw family.
it thought it would help if there was a page devoted to what has changed since 2000. .
2012 oct release of jw.org - jws encouraged to download their own publications and use ipads at meetings and field service.
- Thank you for compiling this list! It is hard to keep up with changes.

apologies if this has already been posted but i am speechless.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnbmyudrwgs&x-yt-ts=1422327029&x-yt-cl=84838260#t=72.
I did not watch the video but assume it is a bunch of jw's dancing to the 'Happy' song?
I wonder if they have permission to use the song in this way? Do they need permission to do this from Pharrell Williams? aren't they supposed to pay a small amount to use his song?

cut the cord.
sever all ties.
start new.. and she's right.
I am so sorry to hear about your cat. It just adds to your already burdened heart.
As a non jw I am not sure it would be proper for me to add my two cents, I just wanted you to know I am thinking of you and wishing you a bright happy future!

so it has been quite a while since i've last been on this site.
the jist of my story is that about 5 years ago, i started a research journey that took me 2 1/2 years to complete.
against the advice of this board, i decided to show my wife because i mistakenly thought she valued truth.
- Thanks for the update and great information for others! Wishing you all the best, carla

ok - here is your task for the day:.
go to jw.org and find their information email address.
then find their weekend support desk phone number.. there is a link at the bottom of many pages that says [ ] email link.
- I bet if you told a r & f this story they would not believe it!

my son, at age 25 finally, was able to get accepted into a community college.
but i dont have words of joy to share with him.
im instead dizzy with fear of possible financial failure.
Sometimes the kids need to take a few lumps on their journey in life just like we did. You made your worries known to him now it is up to him so wish him well. He is 25 after all.
Who knows what new doors may be opened to him now? New ideas, new critical thinking skills, etc.... who knows? he may even decided an entirely different course before he is through.
Wishing him all the best and for you some peace from your anxieties. It will all work out.

are you crazy?.
you find yourself 'awake' to the truth about the 'truth' and all you do about it.
Aren't most jw's suspicious of old literature? don't their apostate bells go off?
When I was fighting the good fight (trying to reason with my jw) he would not believe ANY old literature quotes and even if I had an old wt he thought it was a fake made by an apostate to be sold on ebay or elsewhere just to make jw's look bad.
Trying a different tack and making the mistake of telling him that some jw's had left the org just by reading the Bible, particularly 2 books of the Bible and asking him if he would be willing to read one of those from start to end he declined saying, "why would I want to read them then?" (meaning some jw's had left due to reading one of these 2 books of the New Testament). So even the Bible itself was off limits if read with an open mind.
