How many here have never been one of Jehovah's Witnesss?
I have never been a Witness, neither first class (annointed), second class (dunked), nor third class (uncommited publisher). My ex-wife was baptised into the Watchtower organization and raised our kids that way, a matter in which I had essentially no voice. It was stressful. Religion is supposed to strengthen families, not undermine one partner bdecause he(she) doesn't share the same beliefs.
have these so called “enlightened” individuals found something better?
I don't speak for everyone, but I think I did. After years of trying, my Ex finally made a convert. She convinced me to go back where I started--which is where she started from too, long before I met her. This is not what she had in mind, but it works for me!
