    Personally, I believe the Watchtower Organization is the real apostate!

    As far as WT-World --Somedays yes, most days no....

    I am still in the conscious class part of my journey.


    "Spiritually".......nah, I like 'God' and I like 'Jesus'.

    The Watchtower is an abusive relationship in which leaving is easier in theory than actuality.

    It is a long running case of abuse 'vampire syndrome' and every single JW started out as a victim.

    Speaking truth is not apostasy.

  • Finkelstein

    Yes against human ignorance , lies and corruption, which means I'm against religion.

    I do freely. I'm proud that learned the truth about the word and chose to stand (stasis) apart (apo) from the backward nonsense of the WBTS.

    wha happened?

    NO I don't unless by definition, an apostate is someone who calls people on BS

    Dictionary definition:

    One who has forsaken the faith, principles, or party, to which he before adhered; esp., one who has forsaken his religion for another; n : a disloyal person who forsakes his cause or religion or political party or friend etc. [syn: deserter, renegade, recreant] ; faithless to moral allegiance; renegade; a pervert.

    Now if you just want to look at the first part, then some would be okay with the use of the word apostacy. Or apostate. But when you see the other derogatory words associated with this word..... faithless to moral allegiance, a pervert

    the other thing that is added in

    the WTS addition: "Others claim to believe the Bible but reject Jehovahs organization" . nothing in the NT applied apostacy amongst Christians to anything other than rejecting the teachings of Jesus Christ!

    apostasy seems to have two understandings in the modern world 1) rejecting your religious denomination 2) rejection of the teachings of Christ(for Christians at least)
