While you were in the org, have you ever stumbled someone?

    While you were in the org and you know the Watchtower is a fraud, did you stumble someone on purpose and that person is no longer in the org, is that worth it?

    How would you know; it is so subjective. I remember a sister who was "stumbled" over what anyone did and ran to the elders.

    i hated and still do hate the term "stumbled". from a jw standpoint, i always thought that if someone was stumbled over what someone else did they were really not strong spiritually to begin with.

    now, i just look at it as someone who gets "stumbled" is just a "crybaby"

    I never quite got the concept, why should what I do affect someone else's faith ? O.K if I was an out and out rotter, a real sinner, and the congregation did nothing about it, then a newcomer might question the org.

    But with ever vigilant Elders just waiting to sling you out, how could that happen ?

    If someone didn't like something I did and thought it was un-christian ,then they should come to me and talk about it, and even if my reaction was not good, why would that "stumble" them ? I ain't J.C after all.

    I never bothered myself about it, and I do not think I was the cause of anyone even doubting, let alone leaving. of course, looking back ,if I had been Iwould say I did them a favour !

    Not on purpose.

    A sister stumbled over my feet while getting to her seat at a D.C.
