Here is a goodbye thread for people who have decided to move on and leave JWN. Posting a message for everyone or just some.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
I will be the first
I am leaving for personal reasons outside of JWN this time so it will be for good. I have finally made a full commitment to going back to the witnesses.
And this site and being a witness don't really work, It is for people that are leaving but not for people that are going back.
I want to leave on a positive note and say that I have learned a lot. JWN has challenged my bible knowledge and I have examined my deepest beliefs and found a deeper love of Jehovah and his son Jesus I never knew I had and for that I am truly grateful.
Thank you simon for your support and williness to allow me to be heard despite the mockery of others.
Take care everyone, may Jehovah guide your hearts back to him.
s'long reniaa. I'm in the process of going back too, but I will continue with my studies and hope for changes within the JW organisation. I think I'll probably spend less and less time on JWN and will eventually leave too
Take care Reniaa.
quietlyleaving, mickey and chris and to anyone else who replies.
God be with you Reniaa x x
Well Reniaa, I have brought you plenty of scripture in the past so I will leave you with this for your journey...
1 Peter 2:4-8 (New International Version)
The Living Stone and a Chosen People4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says:
"See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame." 7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
"The stone the builders rejected
has become the capstone," 8 and,
"A stone that causes men to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for. Hopefully I will see you in the New Jerusalem :) All the best, Stephen
All t' best ren
I will miss you, in spite of how frustrating and annoying you seem to others, I like to see all perspectives of the Jehovah's Witnesses.
Remember, wherever you go and whatever happens in your life, God has His hand on you.
Blessings and peace to you and yours.
