Thank you for your helpful comments. In response to Smiddy, I have read Don Camerons Book and it is phenomenal. However my wife is not yet at the point of reading anything "apostate" I have had to relay things to her, which actually has seemed to work well since she has trust and respect for me.
We are close to jumping. I think it will only take one more changed teaching or scandal to give her the confidence that leaving is the best decision. Over the past two years I have expressed doubts and concerns about the organization. It has been a progression I guess. This has been the progression of events.
As an elder dealt with a molestation case and spoke with Brooklyn legal- realized they were out to protect the corporation.
Saw a history program on the Kings of Babylon realized that 607 was bunk
Read Finished mystery realized Russel was nuts
told my wife my concerns and doubts- She was shaken but kept my doubts between us
Recieved my new flock book realized it is just a management manual- shared it with my wife, she saw the same.
went to KM school -decided that I couldn't support a hypocritical organization
Discussed internal turmoil with my Wife and stepped down as an Elder under pretense with her support
Began to fade, Stopped service
Harold Campings fiasco was a striking parrallel to the Witnesses predictions. We both saw the similarities
Looked at the fact that the GB was demanding worship
Began to discuss what we would do if DFed
Started to miss meetings together
We are on the way out together. It is funny because in a mathematical way I have added all of the false teachings and corrupt policies up and come to the realization that it is all a lie. She has taken a more emotional, feelings oriented approach and knows it is wrong but is waiting for some sign or feeling that tells her to jump ship.
Thanks again for your thoughts.
