preposterous apostasy position (pap)

  • Gregor

    Main Entry: apos·ta·sy
    Function: noun
    Pronunciation: &-'päs-t&-se
    Inflected Form(s): plural -sies
    Etymology: Middle English apostasie, from Late Latin apostasia, from Greek, literally, revolt, from aphistasthai to revolt, from apo- + histasthai to stand -- more at STAND
    1 : renunciation of a religious faith
    2 : abandonment of a previous loyalty : DEFECTION

    So, let me see if I understand. From the JW pov - I am an apostate. I left the "Organization" So I am - "Apostate/Bad."

    Many JWs, who converted from Catholicism, Baptists, Islam..etc, are also apostates, but now "Apostate/Good"

    So, in other words, a huge focus of their work is to convince others that they should become apostates and join the JWs.

    People who know The Truth(tm), but do not live by it are very very awful people to the Watchtower, because they know the reality of things. It's not about religious apostasy, it's about self-preservation.

    It is kind of ironic that we would go from door to door asking those to examine their faith, put it to the test, literally "apostasize" their faith, yet we cannot examine and put our own faith to the test. If we do, we become "apostates". Talk about RED FLAG!!!
