    Some people leave because they are fed up with the elders. Others have personality issues. Some have doctrinal and prophecy reasons. Some maintain there is no real love in the organization.

    What's your main reason for leaving the JW mindset?

    When I was an elder I saw behind the outward display of fake love. I discovered it was just a big business using crafty methods to extract money from the masses. A scam. A pyramid business marketing Jehovah(TM) as their product.

    I prefer a religion that has free food and wine after their services- those special shabbat onegs at Temple are really nice.

    No real love. Shown by the unchristian application of shunning .

    The main reason for me was the Bizzaro view the JW religion had on normal things in life. (bizzare views on education, employment, view of "worldly" people, etc.)

    Um, they're not a religion but a high control group...

    main reason: 607bce is a fake date for the destruction of Jerusalem. It just didn't happen. With that I knew the corelation of 2520yrs of Gentile Times added to this date = 1914. Need I go on?

    Edit: I read the letters that an Elder called Carl Jonnson sent to New York Bethel RE: 607. from 1977-1980.

    I can understand getting some doctrine wrong. I can understand making mistakes, even saying something will happen and it doesn't. I can understand unloving people acting unloving. I can understand having to change your understanding of things.

    But when you lie to me...that I can't take. I can forgive. I can overlook. I can agree to disagree. But I can't be lied to. I can't take someone refusing to apologize or admit that they were wrong when it is proven. I can't take someone covering over everything that they do wrong. When you lie to me and won't admit it, that's it.
