    I was utterly astrounded to learn that they say Jesus is the mediator only for the annointed,and I only learned this last year when I read the CofC book! I must have been like many in the "truth" today I must have sat there for 34 years and just swallowed without chewing!! Well now I have chewed, and I dont like the taste so I am spitting it out!

    The one thing that really has thrown me for a loop is that Jesus is not my mediator. Many other things that have been mentioned, but this one issue has my mind cnfused enough thar I have brought it up to several fadng JWS. None knew this and one keeps asking more about this My best friend asked if all our prayers have been wasted..

    punk - in the KIT, John 8:58 is translated on the English side: Jesus said to them: "Most truly I say to you, before Abraham came into existence, I have been."

    On the Greek side the words are translated as: I AM

    The footnote explains: This action expressed by this verb began in the past, is still in progress, and is properly translated by the perfect indicative. See App 2F.

    "2F" is long so I won't write it out here - but bottom line it's to diffuse any thought of Jesus being Jehovah. Nevermind that the Greek words are simply I AM.

    What surprised me most was the UN thing - couldn't believe it until I proved it to myself. From there every thing slid down that mountain of.... sh... uh, mud. I was already physically out, but being mentally out is the sweetest freedom.

    The handling and the scope of the pedophilia surprised me.


    I knew something was wrong with the RBC scam. But the ongoing progression of the scam is amazing...makes sense for the WT corporation, but amazing nevertheless.

    Yes. I was surprised by virtually everything I read. I had no idea about Ray Franz. I had no idea about Russell's pyramidology. I had no idea about the plethora of failed predictions. I had no idea the writers consistently quote mined authorities. I had no idea of the Walsh Trial.

    I had no idea it was one big lie and that I was kept in a protective bubble

    I was surprised that they support and protect child abusers. They're also bloody good at brainwashing.
