I really noticed how in the 60 and 70s people actually had respect for each other.
One of the things I noticed after they built the assembly hall, was how much every thing changed and the lack of respect went out the door.
Shocking how people behave.
We use to here talks on how wonderful and clean God's people were compared to the "worldly"
In fact they used to have pre assembly talks on how to behave! Just remembered that one!
Now the local people behaviors just went way down into the the mud. The brothers enjoy fighting over seats like swines rolling in the mud and snarling at one another over" rotten food."
I attended one assembly after years out and I was so shocked with the changes in people's attitudes.
It actually scared me and the fairy tale was no longer there. Some good friends would call this awareness.
Strange thing is that I was in a total cultural shock and the elders were trying to bring me up to all the recent changes.
This change and the lack of love among the JWs and the so called newly built convention was too much to handle. My childhood good memories of assembly was wiped out by new and improved convention centers full of animals.
I was invited a couple of times to attend, some claimed gurantee a good time. Honestly not after what I had experience. Eventually some even admitted the changes and lack of love at conventions were hard for even them to deal with.
Not much love was a good reason for me to leave and never go back.
Honestly who wants to eat in a cafateria full of swines. Not me ever again.
I would rather be alone than in a large room full of blind folks.
