Mrs Punk was not a happy bunny when I announced I was leaving the WTB$ as it was all a big farce.
She has been quite rude to me, she walked out one weekend and came back 2 days later from staying with a relative. She told me about all the negative reasons I left (attributing the 'evil' to me and none to the holy 7 headed beast the GB). She has told the teenage kids they are not to listen to me.
She refuses to talk Bible and gives me the 'talk to the hand sign' on the basis she refuses to listen to my 'spiritual pornography' (now there's an appealing thought!!). My guess is she knows I can wake her up but she prefers dubby dreamland.
She says that when we met I was a JW which is what she wanted, now I'm not! What does that tell me? Well, a few things really but here's one.....
That the scripture in MATT 19:6
''So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
Although the WTB$ pay lip service to the sanctity of marriage and will boldly declare they do not break up families, the 'mind cleansing' the JWs are under causes the opposite.
We see faked 'experiences' at boasting sessions, in the literal-trash and DubVD's that show originally abusive husbands who smoked, gambled, watched the Smurfs submitting to 'mind cleansing' and becoming the best people in this quadrant of the known universe.
There is plenty of subversive pressure and nagging advertizing wives of unbelieving mates can do to hound their husbands to have their 'minds cleansed' to WTB$ specification.
However, when it comes to a 'mind cleansed' husband that wakes up from the 'brainwashing' 'mind cleansing' all hell breaks loose.
I told her this is how the WTB$ DOES break up families. I told her she attributes all the bad to me but her actions are WTB$ inspired.
Or is it just my situation? Is it just Mrs Punk or is it the 'just imperfect men' of the WTB$'s 'mind cleansing' that's done it? You know. 'Hate what is bad'
"Jesus encouraged his followers to love their enemies, but God's Word also says to "hate what is bad." When a person persists in a way of badness after knowing what is right, when the bad becomes so ingrained that it is an inseparable part of his make-up, then in order to hate what is bad a Christian must hate the person with whom the badness is inseparably linked." Watchtower 1961 Jul 15 p.420
