I'm a former MTS graduate, and it's a long story but I recently became inactive after realising it was all nonsense. The problem is, I've noticed that my MTS background makes it almost impossible for people to accept my new status as an "inactive" one. People think that, given the amount of knowledge I have, there is surely no excuse for me to reach this preposterous decision.
A friend from my MTS recently began emailing me to find out my reasons. I've mostly been avoiding giving my reasons to anyone, because the last thing I want is for anyone to accuse me of being an apostate, so I figure the more elusive I am the better. Apart from anything else, certain members of my family are still witnesses, and I can't bear the thought of being unjustly separated from them.
However this particular friend is an elder, so I figure what's the harm in explaining why I am so "confused" and unable to go on the ministry so long as it's just between me and him as an elder?
Is this a dangerous strategy? Could this backfire on me? Any tips?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts...
