So one year of lots of questions and showing doubts, and missing quite a few meetings but still going out in service, doing mics, reading, hall projects...Then I get the new light from Society regarding the letter I sent them (wow, stunned me, blew me away) and I let them know how I felt about it and I quit the ministry after 40 active years. Nobody says anything about this, no counsel, no will you go out with us on saturday. not a single "were is your time for the month" phone call. Not only that, but without even asking for it, they dropped me out of the KM School! They did not tell me, just stopped givng me assignments, same with mic schedule, no reading at book study, I was gone. Surely the CO would see my empty card for a year and go "whats the hey with this man, no time in a year" but not a word!
But again, It struck me as odd that all this happened with NOBODY asking me anything or trying to encourge me. It is awesome! I honestly think they were scared I was going to share the info from the Society about the bible having been corrupted by satan, and how we have tried to fix that even though we have no original manuscripts, so anybody can just put what they want in there.
Now, I have been to one meeting, the Sept QB, and that is the only one since two elder talked to me about my wife showing them I had visited this site. I blew it off as curiosity and looking for old literature documents, which was true (now it is much more, I have friends and theray!). No one has spoken to me since, and I hope that is a good sign.
Is this a whacked up way for elders to run a hall? They know I have some mental/emotional issues as result of my Spiritual Crusade for Real Truth. What I found freaked them out too, and at one point I said, "So you guys are in charge, judge us, and shepard us, and YOU did not know what we have done to the Christian Greek Scriptures?" Heads shook, "no".
Right now I am oh so fine with how it has gone down, but my wife is pretty pissed at the elders for not helping much at all.
is this different from your elder experiences in these matters or what?.....lucky oompa
