    Nothing personal Minimus, but for me it was corrupt elders.

    KEN, I'm glad you've made the leap HERE!

    Once you check the facts, it's a no brainer. This religion is historically built on falsehood.

    I was so depressed, I just wanted to die. At that point, I can't say that I was disagreeing with much in the religion, I just knew if I didn't get out, eventually I would stop thinking about taking the entire bottle of pills I had hidden in a pair of my boots, and actually take them all at once.

    It was a long buildup of many realizations about false prophecy, false doctrine, and stubborn dictatorship.

    But the last straw was that WT article in the late 70s where the GB overlords patiently explained to us idiot great crowd people that Jesus was not really our mediator.

    Welcome Kensei.

    Your details are very much appreciated. Perhaps you could post an introduction thread?

    Franklin Massey:

    Thank you very much for your post; as well may I say I have enjoyed reading yours in the last few weeks as well. I believe I will post an intro thread when I have a little more time.

    Have a great day!!

    • I asked myself, how come I feel so empty even though I have the truth?
    • Why don't I have true friends being part of the only true worldwide brotherhood?
    • Do we really have the identifying mark of love?
    • The elders are the biggest hypocrites. How can they be appointed by holy spirit?
    • We criticise the churches of Christendom while child abuse cases are covered up! How can Jehovah allow that?
    • In what way is the org being spirit directed by Jehovah?
    • Why is there so much in the bible I feel disgusted about?
    • Even though going to all the meetings and pioneering, why do I always feel guilty, lonely and depressed?

    Welcome to the forum, Kensei01!

    What ACTUALLY did it........hard to say....The 'overlapping' piddled me off big time.....all the GB control overriding the love of Jesus............in essence I think I woke up to the fact that there was more love in many 'worldly' people than I saw in my conditionally loving dubsturbators................

    I agree with this 100%, this could be me speaking....

    I began hating being an elder. I felt bad for many who were basically good people being put down by the system as a Witness. But eventually, I decided I NEEDED to get out. I just couldn't keep the charade going.

    I honestly believe it's a stupid religion. It makes no sense. It's not a logical religion. That's a fact.
