pjs - No, no harm has ever befallen me like that. WTS only wasted my time and destroyed my friendships and youth since I was young and naive when I joined this miserable religion and walked away from good friends because they were not "acceptable to God" That's why witnesses shouldn't be allowed to study with other people's youth.
It appears that the first century Christians didn't have a governing body as WTS claims. Paul wasn't of the 12 and he went and rebuked Peter on circumsision, do you imagine anyone today going and rebuking any of the gb in public? Actually Olin Moyle did to a much lesser degree since it was only in a letter to Rutherford and for that he was called Judas and evil slave. Ray Franz stood his ground and gb dealt with him in their typical decietful way by df him for having a meal with a landlord, boss and friend who da himself at the time when da was not a shunning offence - but gb fixed that loophole and da Ray for a meal he had before the mag date was even in effect.
You're still finding out about wts and it's works and that's also why you seem to believe that your works as per WTS will bring you salvation. More you learn about GB the more you'll come to doubt most of their origianl thinking. if you need any old publications I might have the links you might use in your research If you want legal documents and stuff like that I can help with some but not many. Since you took upon yourself to research WTS start from the start. Start with Russell and ask yourself was he directed by God. If he wasn't when did WTS become God's channel of communication. That was my objective when I started my awakaning research. You'll discover that dying for the religion that is full of lies is dying for a myth that a religion build over 130 years and this myth is ever changing as older gb die off and newer blood gets appointed and the new voting may result in 2/3 majority causing so called new light and a new chapter to a story that promises you everlasting life on paradise earth where all will have only enjoyable jobs and all other nonsence that has been taken out of context and presented to the people as bible truth.
Try not to get discouraged as you find more and more evidence that WTS is not God's channel of communication. Healing takes longer than discovering the truth unfortunately.
