    Ding Ding Ding!

    Just wow ...............and as we would already suspect .... show this to a dub and they won't SEE it!

    Thanks for posting this Bangalore, maybe worth contacting that xcult therapy group in the UK and see what they have to say about jw's.

    That was very interesting the experience for jw born ins can be very different from those who join from the outside. It is difficult to see yourself and understand the mistakes you've made and to realize how you mislead yourself. It has taken me decades to stop myself and be more careful I wanted peace and happiness on earth and all those good things and I kept thinking I saw it only to be disillustioned. I've learned to be a more critical thinker and to accept that maybe my dreams won't really happen and whoever might be in charge who knows what their agenda might be. It's a little harder to live this way but I will not be burned again. i don't know what the answer is I wish I knew what was really going on but you really really really have to be careful.

    My goodness, that rang bells!

    Idealistic and curious people getting hooked and drawn in. Yup.

    Your own personal tutor/indoctrinator. Yup.

    Praise at first and as you get deeper in, more and more criticism. Yup.

    Differentiation between cult members and the world. Yup.

    Approaching end of the world. Yup.

    Family concern. Yup.

    And just about everything else it says. Very, very interesting.

    Just look at all the comments under the article saying the group sounds 'very nice' and that this guy's story doesn't add up, or that this group doesn't fit the definition of a cult...etc etc etc...
