I liked the idea. I love travel, nature and exploring the many wonders of this planet. The idea that we could have a world with no more wars, crime or violence was very appealing to me. That's why I fell for it.
Too bad it was a bunch of lies told by a bunch of lying liars.
It's funny, the relationship between an individual and the WTBTS looks and feels a lot like a business relationship: they make promises in exchange for you signing up and becoming a member. (Ok, I know that theoretically it is "Jehovah" that made the promises, but they claim to be his "Spokesmen" here on earth and I never heard God talk to me but I did her them!)
A promise for a promise. A contract.
Now I made good on my promise: I got baptized and went a-preaching.
They have yet to make good on their promise.
In Contract Law this is called Breach of Promise and automatically voids the contractual obligations. If it can be established that either party made promises that it had no intention of fulfilling or was never capable of fulfilling then those promises made were fraudulent. Clearly, the WTBTS is guilty of FRAUD.
Unfortunately, they are exempt from criminal and/or civil prosecution under US Law. Ironically, the leadership of the WTBTS should all be disfellowshipped for their fraudulent claims. But of course they give themselves a pass because that is what lying liars, frauds and conmen do.
I've lost my faith in God as a result of their betrayal and lies. But some days I still hope there is a God. Mostly because I want him to make him pay for their crimes.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of [the] living God. - Hebrews 10:31
