Violet........I do not go around trying to convince people of anything they don't want to be convinced of. I usually assume that people who come to this board are searching......doubting, perhaps, and are open to hearing the truth about it all. When I see someone say something positive about the JW's, it hits a nerve. There are SOME good people there, but there is very little truth in their doctrines, and philosophies, if they say they are Bible based.
I think most of us here feel the same. We have been hurt, damaged, betrayed, lied to, etc. etc. etc. I really don't want ANYONE to have to go through what we did.........and we escaped (yes, escaped) without being disfellowshipped. But, it was a waste of my life, and my children's lives. The opportunities I might have explored are all gone now. Too late for me, but my children and grandchildren are young enough to still have those opportunities and I REJOICE in that!!!
Just trying to prevent that in others. But only if they come here.
