I just want to shake/beat/box him into listening.

    **Frustration** I've mentioned my cousin on here before - he is disfellowshipped for wrong doing (been out for a year now) and he's having a good old time, smoking, drinking, doing his thang. HOWEVER he still believes that the JWs have the truth.

    I have tried the tatical approach, asked "leading" questions, asked him to do a bit of research, shown him this site. Then I resorted to full out attack on their beliefs. NOW I just show pure intolerance for this faith. I've told him about the UN thing, the pedophilia, the lies, the changes, e v e r y t h i n g!!

    He looks at me with his blinkers on and still believes it's the truth. The only thing he asks "" You really are over the faith then Lou "" my reply today was "Hell yes, that faith makes me sick, if I had a choice of going back or slitting my throat and bleeding to death I'd choose the latter" (I dragged my nailfile across my throat and hung my head for dramatical illustration) ................... and nothing, he shakes his head like I'm a lost lil goat.

    I ask myself why he doesn't see this organisation for what it is, why he can't see the manipulation. If only he would do some research while he was out and free to do it. The boy wants to go back to the faith and soon.

    It's so so so very frustrating and sometimes I just have to vent.

    Seems to me he's just made a slight detour for awhile, he's enjoying the fun/good times too much

    and really doesn't seem to care about doctrines at this point. I'm sure it is very frustrating for you,

    they do not see until they are ready to see.

    Hey Lou - maybe it will just take time? I left the org 12 years ago and led a "worldly" life , but only started really questioning things in the last year or two. I understand your frustrations though. I have friends (I posted about them the other day) and I so wish I could get them to see the light, but I guess each in their own time!

    Hey Lou,

    we all learn at our own pace and use whatever gifts God gave us. Right now he is a year out. Probably still a bit in shock, getting his bearings, and off keel. The way these freaks treat someone is like the df'd person is dead, so I think we go through a variety of stages as we separate from them. Be supportive of him, love him, and keep at him. If he is one of us, he will hear the call. Maybe not Jesus' call, but at least the call of reason!
