Hi- I just wanted to say that I have been checking the website out for a few weeks and have read some horror stories and some sad ones. But I have been studying with Witnessess for about six months and can't help but feel that they're completely sincere and maybe even, the true religion. I love the Watchtower and Awake and to me, none of that seems crazy.
Penelope, this is called indoctrination. The people you study with are sincere and don't even realize they are doing it. Think about the study structure. Read a paragraph, answer a question. It all seems very logical and complete. However are you award that one of the techniques learned in the ministry school is to ask questions specifically designed to lead you to THEIR conclusion? This is powerful, because once they get you to put it in your own words you think the conclusion is YOURS and therefore valid.
I was very good at this. I was sincere. I could ask you a chain of questions where only one conclusion was obvious and it came from your own mouth. I thought about writing out such a scenario, but then I remembered this video. It's humorous, but really think about it. How are the questions asked and how is the conclusion drawn? Is there another possible answer?
