Jehovah's Witnesses have an invisible problem which is as unseen as Jesus. The Problem with their problem is that it is unseen.
What do I mean by this?
The Future Jehovah's Witnesses prepare for is not THEIR FUTURE at all.
The JW future is Armageddon (very soon!) followed by paradise.
The invisible problem is the REAL future. Education, earning a decent living, investment, savings, aging, ill health, infirmity, retirement, funeral costs and burial.
These ugly truths are the REAL future. Invisible to JW's they cannot and will not take steps to prepare ahead of time to deal with these facts of life.
The Problem with the problem is a crime against their humanity committed by the leaders governing the body of leadership in charge of education.
The IRONY is the official magazine is called WATCHTOWER!
In ancient times every city had a tall tower to warn of impending attack which allowed some measure of advance notice.
The JW Watchtower avails no actual advance warning in a real way for real life in the practical here and now.
Case in point: I was once a young Jehovah's Witness. The Watchtower (speaking directly FOR Jehovah) assured me I would not grow old in this system. 1975 would be the significant year in human history which would usher in the Millennium and the restoration of perfection. Higher education would, consequently, be a DISTRACTION rather than a benefit.
Those of my generation who went to college earned at least twice as much as I would have thanks to my "advance warning" from the Watchtower!
I worked for a janitorial service while my high school chums went off to college.
I served time in Federal Prison while others were beginning a career.
I was Pioneering while others were buying a house, putting money into savings, planning for the future.
Who was right and who was wrong?
Obivously the Watchtower willfully and authoritatively blinded me to my own REAL FUTURE while lying to me about the make-believe future.
The Watchtower cannot restore my youth. I cannot get those years back.
Millions of people from 1879 until now, cumulatively, had their future stolen and security snatched from them for themselves and their families. Generations have been robbed and damaged.
My 21st birthday was not a celebration for me as it was for my non-Witness contemporaries. I was in prison my entire 21st year of life!
Interestingly and maddeningly, the legal requirement of the Superior Athorities (Federal Government) was that I serve alternate time in service to my community by working in a hospital!
The U.S. Government did NOT demand I go kill. They asked for hospital work.
The Watchtower religion, however, turned those 2 years into empty months of non-education that became religious indoctrination.
I didn't help myself. I didn't help others. I ignored a real future in favor of a make-believe future.
THAT IS AN AWFUL WASTE. I lay the blame on Watchtower leadership partly and the other blame on my own ignorance and naive devotion to their authority.
They SECRETLY advised me not to mention I was being urged by their leadership to take the steps I was taking. Get the point here? They expected heroism from me while demonstrating their own cowardice!
Yet, I was not a hero to them, my family or myself. I was a puppet.
The Problem with the problem is REALITY is the natural right of every human being. Decisions (important decisions) MUST BE BASED ON REALITY.
The leadership in the Watchtower Society STEALS REALITY and hides it!
This makes every JW member's decisions based on non-real alternatives. This makes those decisions COUNTERFEIT CHOICES.
Having your own life BE your own life means when you make choices they have to be REAL ones.
For almost twenty years of my life I honestly thought I was making real choices about my real future.
I was not. Millions of others were not.
We had FALSE choices before us and our decisions were NOT our own.
Our lives were not our own.
They were stolen. They were hijacked.
They were ransacked and abandoned by intruders RUNNING the Governing leadership at Watchtower headquarters who broke in and carried off whatever was of value.
Every Jehovah's Witness alive today is blind---totally blind--to their own future just as I once was.
They have their real future hidden. They will age. They will need money for retirement. They will likely get sick and end up in a hospital. They will die and their family will have to
come up with enough money to bury them.
The lie continues.
The Watchtower LIE is that REAL LIFE doesn't exist----only the make believe one.
The Problem with the problem is that so many people cannot even see what is INVISIBLE: their own future!
