    I have read CoC, CCMC, ISOCF and Captive of a Concept. I have been fading since April. I have nothing to hold me back in WBTS so I have decided to leave it.

    I contacted one of the elders and told him that I no longer wish to be a JW. He arranged for a meeting and I told him that I will not attend as it's not going make any difference. Two elders visited me in my office and wanted to know why I decided to leave. I brought up the blood issue (have doubts on whole lot more but the blood issue will do for now), I told them that I have done enough research on it and I could no longer support the WT reasoning regarding blood transfusion. Of course they used Bible verses to support their stand on the issue but I remained firm with my decision.

    I have some close friends inside so I called them to explain my situation. How stupid of me to think that they will understand. So I guess that's it.

    Congratulations. Why did the elders show up at your office? Did you arrange it? Just curious since you told them you would not attend a meeting.

    I wish you well on your new life. I'm sorry you are losing close friends. Sadly we all wish they would understand and they never do.

    NewChapter - I was quite surprised when they turned up at my office. I also don't know what they will do next. Will there be an anoucement at KH soon or will they leave it at that?

    I feel free now... thank you guys. It would not have been possible without JWN.

    Congratulations, you had the guts to do it, but remember, you left a human organitation and God and Jesus have nothing to do with them. Keep reading the Biblie by yourself.
