My jw brother steers clear of anything he suspects is negative towards the gb, organization, f&ds, etc.
He is extremly close minded. Does he have any doubts about anything? I don't know. He would not talk to me about it.
He will not give one minute to anyone he thinks of as "apostate'.
So how can I help him discover the TATT? I can't can I?
It all comes down to having doubts and seeing that things are not right in the congregation. This is what led me to be willing to explore sites such as jwn and jwfacts.
So Simon, again, I agree with you. It is good to have information available for witnesses when they are ready to explore it, to help them deal with their guilt and fear and to have information presented clearly that helps them to understand the tatt.
Extreme activists fit what the wts warns against. As a witness I paid no attention to such ones and I know my brother does not either.
On a side note regarding Cedars:
He unfriended me on FB because I mentioned to him that there were decreases of publishers worldwide during both 1977 and 1978, but that did not spell the end of the wts. On the contrary, just a few years later there was a new peak of publishers followed by years of rapid growth.
He accused me of being "stupid" and a "watchtower apologist". Whether he misunderstood my point, I do not know, but I was very disappointed by his actions and I realize now he is an egotist with a personal vendetta against the wts and strongly dislikes anyone who does not share all of his views.
