May you all have peace!
I would like to know something, if you will indulge me, please - thank you! I'd like to know/understand:
To what extent did you, as a JW... read/know the contents of the Bible? Did you look things up on your own to see if they were "so"... or did you just take the WTBTS's "word" for it that it said... and meant... what they said it did?
I am asking because I am often surprised at what I perceive is NOT known as to what's in the Bible... and by whom. Given the great amount of responsibility that comes with such positions/activities, I had always thought that those who deigned to teach ME (and others)... KNEW. Well, SHOULD know. I have learned over the years, however, that that hasn't been true at all. If you would respond, therefore, it would give me... and perhaps some of those here who are still IN... a more accurate picture of just who and what IS (or is NOT)... "leading" them.
I think that if they KNEW the truth regarding this... they would be little more apt to at consider QUESTIONING not only what they're learning... but who they're learning if FROM. Your honestly professing the TRUTH about your "knowledge" and "understanding" could go toward greatly helping set some of these folks free... from the WTBTS, at least.
Besides, it would be the TRUTH... which they need to know. I think it's about time to come clean on this issue. Don't you?
Again, peace to you all!
