I have learned to Stay away from ALL RELIGION and Jehovah’s Wittness Doctrine (that includes the watchtower and awake magazines). Stay away from positions of ministerial servant, pioneer, aux pioneer, elder, and the like. Once you become a full fledged Jehovah Wittness You are DOOMED TO BE UNHAPPY.
From the outside looking in...Jehovah’s Wittnesses APPEAR TO BE THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, but the TRUTH IS MANY JEHOVAH’S WITTNESSES SUFFER IN SILENCE! Many Jehovah’s Wittnesses are in a EMOTIONAL PRISON and LIVE IN FEAR! Some Jehovah’s Wittnesses are stuck in SEXLESS MARRIAGES (including myself) but CANNOT GET FREE FROM THEM because of FEAR OF WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE and DISFELLOWSHIPPING!
Nearly everything you do or THINK ABOUT DOING IS SURPRESSED…Instead of fearing God in a healthy way…you end up fearing Elders and MEN IN POSITIONS…Your life becomes ONE BIG GLASSHOUSE…with LITTLE OR NO ROOM to be creative or expressive…That is probably why many witnesses CAN’T GET MARRIED….The way The Watchtower is setup…Marriage is nearly IMPOSSIBLE…because your personality is governed by the opinion of others and it is VERY DIFFICULT to be yourself and see others HOW THEY TRULY ARE....You end up surpressing your personality to FIT IN.
The Jehovah’s Wittness Religion does have a few good morals to live by and I do appreciated some of the principles that are layed out as far as trying to love others and be a moral person BUT IN CONCLUSION... The Jehovah's Wittness Religion is Best enjoyed at a SAFE DISTANCE! You can enjoy some of the association and even go out in field service every now and then (when you feel like it of course) BUT YOU BETTER STAY AWAY FROM THE WATCHTOWER SOCIETY MINDSET…It’s unrealistic and superficial.....(YOU WILL SUFFER IN SILENCE)...It is best to stick the basic principles layed out in the bible and leave religion and watchtower doctrines alone. You will feel more SPIRITUALLY FREE, CLOSER TO GOD and HAPPIER in the long run that you did. CLOSENESS WITH GOD IS ABOUT EMOTIONAL FREEDOM AND INNER PEACE....UNFORTUNETELY YOU LOSE ALL THAT ONCE YOU BECOME A FULL-FLEDGED JEHOVAH'S WITTNESS!
