    My first response: "Your organization wants people who will contribute cash. As Bob Dylan said, that ain't me, babe!"

    So you would like me to come back to Jehovah Witnesses to worship the GOD Jehovah , an invention of the Catholics ?

    JWs live in their own little world. If they are told to be nice to inactive ones, they will follow the direction. If they are told to ignore them, they will obey that directive.

    My answer to the OP: you'll have to convince me your god exists before you can determine whether I'm near to, or far from, him.

    I read the the Bible, have you truthfully looked at that book, study it?

    They've said it to me. I don't have it in me to break their hearts and tell them that Jehovah- like Zeus- is just a good story. I just smile and say, "I'm fine. Thank you so much for your concern."

    My response is, and has been...:

    'I don't qualify to be a Jehovah's Witness.'

    The terms for being a JW include acceptance and propagation of the full range of teachings of the WT society, as they are handed down to the witnesses. If you don't accept each and every last point of every doctrine, no matter how peripheral and arcane, you might as well not accept ANY.

    Those are the terms of membership, as set by their leadership. I had no say in it. So when I explain it to family or witness 'friends', I frame it as something 'they' did.

    I asked my mother if she preferred that I profess something I didn't believe. I asked what was the value in fooling men...when I couldn't fool Jehovah?

    I got silence. They are just people schooled in the art of not thinking.

    When my dad invited my to the last international assembly my reply was

    I asked if any of the governing body was going to be there because I am afraid of the 7 men in Brooklyn that direct this organisation, because if I don't follow them they can use me family as a weapon against me.

    I'm still in for family reasons but my response when that day comes will be:

    "The Shashu god?" This would kill them.
