How else can a person justify that Jehovah will destroy 6 billion people, innocent children included? I could never accept that I deserved salvation whereas almost no one else did. It put me on permanent spiritual edge because i thought the Slave is right so the doctrine of destruction must be, but my heart always knew it was wrong.
It is only by keeping my heart alive that I think I could waken my mind from the mental fog it had been subjected to my entire life.
Matthew 15:8 says ‘This people honors me with their lips, yet their heart is far removed from me.' I can't help but think the WTS forces shutting down the heart in order to follow such evil doctrines as shunning family and thinking everyone deserves to die.
Did many others have trouble accepting this concept as a JW?
