A friend of mine say this, " If they had found the answers elsewhere, they wouldn't have turned to the JW's".
I recall my Mother mentioning the samething to me when she became a JW, that they had the answers and that no one else did.
Answers to questions that other religions just didn't have a "convincing" enought reply to.
Of course I asked, "how do you know? have you asked and researched?"
The answer typically comes back "well, er..yes..not really..or from what I was given by the WT..."
I had very much of the same questions, perhaps more so, I just didn't take what the WT told me as "gospel" and researched it on my own, with the help of those more learned than I.
I applied the same critical view to WT doctrine as the WT told me to apply to RCC or Protestantism or Buddhisim, etc and it the WT came up wanting.
But, I REALLY had to search for it, really had to research it and I am NOT DONE YET !
Is it the fault of the religions that people leave to join the WT and become JW's or does it fall on those leaving to truly find out what religion they are leaving and to what are they entering?
I mean, we can't deny that fact that so many say that the WT has the answer to their questions when other religions don't, even if the answer is wrong.
