    Welcome...yeah I had the overlapping gen' discussion with two trolley/ cart older jws , they had no biblical support for this and could only say its further enlightenment?!!

    Best wishes on your journey out of the bullsh....t

    Overlapping generations was the trigger for me and that joke of the zone branch broadcast sealed the deal

    I was honest and stated my doubts about the generation teaching and the g.b. being led by god.

    I'm wondering how often this elder has already heard, or thought, these same doubts.

    Welcome! Wow.....you actually made those admissions to an Elder, and haven't gotten invited to a Judicial Committee yet? You really do live in a liberal Congregation......that, or the Elder himself has the same doubts and is maybe even "awake" like you?

    Mormons and Scientologists also have websites.....better than the JW's actually. The Heaven's Gate Cult were probably the first to have a website.....they killed themselves in hopes of being transported up to the Hale-Bopp comet. Was that God's backing as well? Crazy, crazy reasoning.

    Welcome the comet, Thanks for your post...it's nice to see lurkers finally posting.

    I see you're still in for family but you woke up five years ago. That is a long time to still go to meetings.

    Are you struggling to keep sane at meetings? How do you cope? Do you want true freedom?

    Take care

    Welcome Comet!

    I too was a long time lurker until about a month a ago. I have been mentally since at least 2010, but I still go to meetings just to keep up appearances. It is becoming tougher and tougher to do, however. I am thankful for websites like this that make it a little easier.

    Welcome, the comet.

    This hall is just a social club with crazy rules - yep, pretty much spot on.
