I finally figured out that there IS one thing I can thank them for. You see, because they are so rigid, dogmatic and unmerciful in their teachings, doctrines and practices, when I finally realized THEY are wrong, it made me begin to examine the alleged holy scriptures authored by religious leaders from the past and to finally see that it's all man-made. When I believed strongly in bible writings, my view of reality was skewed effectively as a consequence. I also became fearful of things that were prescribed in the bible for humans to fear and even envisioned things just as spostles of old were alleged to have envisioned them. Funny thing is........today that phenomenon is called hallucinations. Yet people still look to those hallucinating storytellers for spiritual guidance in most facets of their lives.
So, thank you WTS, for showing me what a crock religion with all its trappings is, including the Watchtower Society. If you'd been merciful, flexible and more reasonable, I'd never have learned this about religion, including yours.
