2. Pretend nothing has changed so that when they find out I am an apostate they wonder why I am still acting normal
That's what I do. The Watchtower has Fallen.
When I do tell them that I DA'd because I wanted to worship Jesus after I found out the Wacthtower Society had whored herself with the UN for almost 10 years, most dubs get a shocked, glazed over look in their eyes and immediately hit the road.
When they see me again, they give a Good Witness to the public.
I love being shunned in public by the JW's because after they leave I tell all curious onlookers that I was once a member of the JW 's until I found Jesus and became a Christian. Now, the JW's despise and loathe me.
I say, let the shunning doctrine remain in place for awhile.
