Good idea New York because if there are wobblers on the
congos, they don’t want to advertise their disbelief. The JW religion is about
appearances... an example of this is about the half hearted witnessing time, put in because it is required of them, not out of earnest desire to find new converts.
Of course there are many who just put in a report without the work.
I have just spent the afternoon with a close friend who is a
JW of good standing but in his head he doesn’t believe a word of their
teaching. He is aware as most of us here that the GB are sociopaths playing the
role of God ordained teachers but without the authority. He actually hates the
organisation! But his fondness for his JW zombie wife means he goes through the
motions and lives in tolerable peace with her but mentally lives elsewhere through
books and a cultural life apart from JW indoctrination.
I asked him today about others in the cong who also might be non believers and he said he knows of others, but like him they would
rather not rock the boat. Simply to talk
about the errors of the society is enough to create a witch hunt and
unpleasantness, so no one goes there...
If there are one hundred and fifteen thousand congregations I
would think that would make at least 115,000 mentally out but stuck in and
another 400,000 having grave doubts and perhaps another 500,000 unenchanted youth
about to leave as well. This of course is just a guess...how could we ever measure it accurately?
All in all let’s hope
that the internet with its transparent information allow the world at large and
more and more JWs to see the harmful cultic activity of the JW org and
encourage them to leave in droves.
