    How many here have never been one of Jehovah's Witnesses?

    *raises hand* Because I never took the plunge to be one of the bOrg I technically have never been one of jehovah's witnesses. I am a born-in who gladly walked away.

    Well hello there Serenity, where have you been

    I missed you girl !!!

    I didn't take the plunge either, especially when it became closer

    to my daughter leavin' high school and they start showin' their

    true colors about higher education. If I had of known the truth

    about the "Truth" when they came to my door I would have sent

    them packin' Oh well BTTT

    Tia; there is no other religion that teaches as much idolatry as the WTS , from the early teachings of CT Russel with his pseudo Masonic leanings and obsession with the Pyramids the Winged Disc etc to the modern day version during the presidency of homosexual and fellow homosexual Nathan Knorr and Fred Franz a publication cannot be read without a picture of a Watchtower, fly over Brooklyn and see constant imagery of WT's, make a thorough study of the history of this dangerous cult Tia and see how guilty the organization you reconcile as being and exponent of biblical truths is of idolatry.

    22 However, great joy was now near for the Jonadab company or “other sheep.” A five-day general convention of Jehovah’s witnesses was announced. Beginning with the April 1, 1935, issue of The Watchtower the announcements thereof said: “Again The Watchtower reminds its readers that a convention of Jehovah’s witnesses and Jonadabs will be held at Washington, D.C., beginning May 30 and ending June 3, 1935. It is hoped that many of the remnant and the Jonadabs may find it convenient to attend the convention. Heretofore not many Jonadabs have had the privilege of attending a convention, and the convention at Washington may be a real comfort and benefit to them.” (Page 98) “This is a service convention, and it is expected that all the remnant and the Jonadabs will participate in the service.”—Page 110.

    I was never baptised, and even if I was, like Spade, I would have only been a Jonadab, not a real Jehovah's Witness as they consist of annointed only.

    dgp has made the most important statement in answering SPADE

    Your hypothetical statistics are called lies , which then again personifies the WTS. quite well.

    SPADE says he not a JW but there is something telling about this fellow and that he's what

    we used to describe as sitting on the fence.

    He hasn't quite formed an identity for himself yet so he hangs on to the one the JWS gave him.

    There's allot of brainwashing happening at the Kingdom Halls and it is difficult to deprogram oneself out of it.

    I think allot of people will recognize that.

    Hallo Alice/Racheal/Confearacy/Spade,

    How's tricks?

    I was never dunked as a Dub, and i'm glad. This site is a part of the real world, believe it or not, and different opinions and beliefs are a fact of life.

    If you want to be spoonfed the answers you want, then go back to the KH.

    Maybe some of us live with the uncertainty of never knowing the answers to everything, but that is part of living as our authentic selves.

    As you can see from reading the various response, Spade, much of what you asked just isn't applicable to many people anymore.

    Being a part of the "one true religion" and being "enlightened" by it, and having "The Truth" are axioms for the Jehovah's Witness religion. Not all people or all religions see the world according to such a paradigm.

    And I personally didn't disassociate myself from the Jehovah's Witnesses because I thought they were a "cult" or because of believing some sensationalized false report about them. I didn't leave to get involved to take up an immoral lifestyle either. Nothing of what you wrote about applies to me in my situation whatsoever.

    And while I don't believe the Jehovah's Witnesses have it right when it comes to religion, I don't label them as a "false" religion either. They don't have "The Truth" like they claim, but I also don't see things as black and white as they do, even in regards to them. I'm not an atheist, I don't agree with any of the things you apparently look down upon (how did you gather this data of percentages, anyway--I think you're off on a lot), but I don't necessarily share your view on these various subjects either. I don't see myself reflected in anything you've written here.

    Apparently you've never thought outside-of-the-box of other possibilities for the various people on this board. And I am sure I am not the only one on this board that you don't have figured out, either.

    If you do, then you can easily explain why I left and what I believe now (because you gave us specific numbers, so somehow you know these things). I'm quite new here, and have never shared any of this. Give a shot.

    Not all people who leave the Watchtower are these "evil, corrupt, devil-zombies" that the Watchtower promises you'll turn into if you leave their Kingdom Halls.
