I echo sentiments similar to Scully's. Living up to expectation I did, and was a ministreal servant working towards being an elder, making meetings, out in field service and giving regular parts on the meetings. It was learning of the lies, deceits, bogus teachings and flip-flops in teaching that left me no option but to disassociate myself. Blaming women of fornications, not worhty of a resurrection if raped and not screaming, the flip-flop on organ transplants being cannibalistic, in addition to all the other flip-flops: Resurrection of the men of Sodom, Superior Authorities, "This Generation", made it obvious the organization is not what the leaders claimed.
Add on their mixed/different origins explanation of a faithful and discreet slave 'class', their 'friend of the court' stance with Swaggart, The UN NPO affiliation, the disingenuous translation of the New World Translation, among so-much more which at best and very generously seen as no different than any other organization, fairly seen as a high level control group, and deep down a cult or at the very least a high-level control organization which employs cult-like tactics.
Knowing all or even some of the above, I would never had been baptized and would have no longer attended meetings or preach their 'message' much, much sooner.
