Believe what you like. I honestly came across this site about that time ago and I applied to be a member. It took a while and I started using another email. So when I did check my email adress I found I was now a member and yesterday was my first time here.
I'm not a JW. I'm a 19 year old, tongue speaking pentecostal. There ya go.
I've studied the watchtower mags and many of their books over the last couple years. I bought them on ebay once out of interest and now have quite a collection I've read. I have never actually had a proper study although attended two thursday night meetings.
Now that I feel i've reached a point of unbelief in the church I am currently in, I was thinking of leaving and properly seeing about going along to JW meetings. The pentecostal church I'm in is very small, 600 or so. We get called a cult and, we prob are. I feel like i've lived a lie the last few years and that i've been worshipping the wrong god and doing all sorts of practices that are not from God. Feel terrible now and finally, I think/thought I had found the truth and wanted to get more involved. The only thing I don't want is to get involved in another cult.
Curtains- sorry, maybe a bit unclear. Let met explain what I meant further:
I thought by what you said you meant that be getting involved it would cause lots of division and hurt within the family? Maybe you didn't mean that.
That's why I posted the verses to show that even Jesus said that would happen if you follow him.
Anyway who cares.
I just wanted some advice cause I wasn't sure what to do and feel a bit upset about everything.
I love my bible and love learning new things from it. Maybe that's not what usual people do who are not already JWs, but that's what I do.
I'm not gonna stay around here but i'll leave my email if anyone has anymore info or anything they would like to share, or even just to chat:
