So my situation is changing and I am trying to figure out the best way for me to handle this. I am an unbaptized publisher married to a dub who was inactive when we met and when we married and during the course of our marriage, and just went back active a year and a half ago. He is a full believing dub. I was Ok participating in the religion but now that I know so many dirty secrets I am over it and will never be a dub. I can't even sit thru a talk or read a pub without seeing all the manipulation. And the clear brain washing of the members saddens me.
I have been studying but want to stop. I plan on simply telling the sister I study with that I need time to consider my questions.
One of my in-laws will be speaking to the elders about the issues I discussed with her relating to child sex u all abuse. She is very bothered by these things and was previously unaware. Also the donation change.
My husband spoke with the cobe about my doubts. He wanted to see if the elder could help him help me understand.
I want to withdraw my status as an unbaptized publisher but not be labeled an apostate. My thought was to say I need more time for study and respond "I am seeking God's answers." To any doctrine question they may ask. I just don't want to cause problems for my husband. What do you recommend?
