My advice to lurkers and newbies is take on board information you get from this forum but remember to judge for yourself from your own experiences, this forum is a melting pot of people who for many reasons have problems with Jehovah's Witnesses or Watchtower society so you'll get a lot of personal opinon stated as facts, research for yourself which is what I do, also remember to apply the same set of standards to all faiths and beliefs not just JW's
How does one "judge for themselves from their own experiences"? What experiences?
Just how much research have you done? What facts have you gathered?
