That is blood curdling information. JW mums will be sitting their grateful for these kind words from the Watchtower, but in reality it shows the truly destructive effect the WTS is having on its members.
It claims to be talking about a person that leaves Jehovah, but every reader knows it means a person that no longer is willing to bow to the whims of the Watchtower Society.
The article shows the true humiliation, pain and suffering the WTS causes family by their ridiculous notion that if you are not a JW you are not worthy of salvation and as good as dead. (Not quite dead as "Jehovah leaves the way open for them") Parents end up loosing their joy in life. And it has the audacity to describe this as "the reasonableness of Jehovah's arrangements".
Considering that over 2 out of every 3 JW kids leave the Org there are a lot of suffering Witnesses around
I agree w/JWfact's words that are quoted here.
This article is so manipulative of peoples' emotions. It brought back very painful memories of the time my family spent in this organization. Now I can see it for what it is, but then I didn't and suffered much pain along w/my kids trying to balance the WTB&TS's unreasonable expectations and the realities in life.
WHY DID WE FEEL SO UNHAPPY? Because this crap and a lot of other crap is what they lay on you. And then they boast about Jehovah's happy people.
