Dear TruthExplorer - I too wish you nothing but the best on your continued spiritual walk. I've know Perimeno for years and he's a good and sincere soul. He does, however, fall into error in his attempt to retain the wtbts as the object of Bible prophecy. In beginning with a false premise, the 'house is built on sand'. If the beginning pretext is wrong, then all consequential applications are also wrong. e-watchman, Robert King, also falls under the illusions of the false premise of the wtbts having fullfilment in prophecy. All I can say is what I now believe - that if a religion takes on the responsibility of speaking for God, then they will all be under the same judgement from God, accordingly. If you believe the wtbts has got some doctrine correct and some wrong, then what separates them from, or elevates them above, the rest of Christianity? It seems to me that all sects of Christianity attempt to 'get it right' and yet there are misunderstandings and differences - how are JWS any different? The 'name of God' has nothing to do with it - 'Jehovah' is not and never was God's name, so that doesn't really make them 'God's Name people'. Wishing for it to really be 'The Truth' does not make it so. The wtbts' 'f&ds' is not a chosen 'channel' of 'truth', or they would've gotten it ALL right from the start. The flip-flops in wt doctrine are an obvious point of contention in believing it all as the f&ds states. The worst thing their doctrine does is separate Jesus from all his sheep The 'other flock' he spoke of is not an elite 'class' of Christians separate from the rest. They were Gentile's who would come to have faith in Jesus also. He said he would take the 2 and make them one flock under one Shepherd - Jesus already did this through Paul's teaching the Gentiles the Good News - but the wt has it backwards and takes the one flock and tries to separate them into 'classes'. It's just wrong. Truthfully, I wouldn't encourage anyone to go back to the wtbts, but the decision is yours.
Well, enough about my thoughts - I do hope the best for you, wherever you are - keep your ears and eyes open and don't neglect addressing the cognitive dissonance some wt doctrine causes - keep on asking God for His spirit to discern the real truth from the rubbish.
Peace of mind to you - watkins
