    Welcome. Be cautious how much you share that can be used to identify you if you wish to remain anonymous. That being said, people here understand what you have experienced and the doubts you have so feel free to share as much as you are able.

    So glad you did get an education, and that you are now free to use that educated brain to think for yourself!

    Welcome Shortie, its so good to have another enlightened 'elder' on here. I too love how you figured it out for yourself despite the daily brainwashing. Well done!!

    Hey man, welcome! Nice to see another seeing thru the org.

    It was seeing first hand that the elders were not appointed by or guided by Holy Spirit that made me think. Then add to that all the other things that I'd pushed to the back of my mind, the house of cards fell down from there.

    How disencouraging to hear of your treatment. They remind me of the scribes and pharisees by making the LORD's work burdensome no wonder they took the authentic bible account of John 7:53-8:11 that basically says "he that is without sin cast the first stone" out of their new bible. They would no longer have a basis for JC's or disfellowshipping as I'm sure that they all fell short before they pronounced that lot on a poor soul.

    I'm new hear too and glad so many others are seeing it for all that it really is. A bunch of men belittling the sacrifice Jesus Christ made so that we all have an opportunity for our sins to be forgiven. They are so busy judging and scrutinizing a person's spiritual strength that they dont even take the time to offer the comfort offered at Mt 11:28-30 Come to me all you who are toiling and loade down and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am mild tempered and lowly in heart, and you will find refreshment for your souls. For my yoke is kindly and my load is light." Anymore
