I know that many who left the Organization left for there own reasons, which are interestingly similar. Is there anything (teaching) that stuck with them. I am mainly refering to the Princibles that are taught. Like our dealings with others. For instance maybe before we joined the Jws we were prejudice and through the teachings we over came that and became a better human. Maybe before we joined the Org we smoked cigs, but through the teachings we quit and started to feel a little healthier. Personal changes that made us a better person, things of that sort. Just curious.
Just because there may have been some changes that made us better people during our experience with the JWS and we recognize it and acknowledge it despite leaving ,doesnt mean we regret our desicion to leave.
Dealings with others - NO I found it impossible to shun my friends who were sinners like me and since Jesus didn't shun anyone, I didn't either.
Got over Prejudice - NO The many classes of people in the JW cult prohibits getting over Prejudices: GB member, DO, CO, Elder, MS, Pioneer, Weak ones, Strong in the truth, on restrictions, etc.
Personal changes - NO The only personal changes I ever saw in the jw cult was outward appearances.
Qiuit Smoking - NO I quit about 3 years before I joined the cult but I did start drinking a lot after I joined.
Sorry, Nothing stuck.
I'm just glad I woke up and escaped from the jw's because they serve and worship the Governing Body and not Jesus.
BTW, your posts remind me of another double-dipped, theocratically baked Super Dub
who used to throw BS threads like this one out to see if he could entice exjw's back to the cult.
