What Happened to my DEAR FRIEND?

    When I first learned about the bull $#@! about the cult that I am in, I reached out to my good friend who brought me into this organization through a study. This man is wonderful human being & I thought would be understanding to my struggles. It is going on almost 2 years now & I still have not heard back from him.

    I was very sincere with my ?'s to him, he was after all an elder in the ORG. I wasn't sure that something was wrong with ORG until our conversation was abruptly ended by his re-action to what I was asking him. The clincher for him was when I asked about NGO staus etc. He said "There is no way that is true period" so I knew then that there is no reasoning with him whatsoever.

    I realized that night without a doubt in my mind it is a CULT! Now I just gotta convince wife & couple of other family members. It has been very hard though, but I remain optimistic. NMH

    NoMoreHustler|:- from what you write " your very good friend" who bought you in to the truth would like you to just quietly leave. I would go so far to say he is fully aware the organisation is bunk and now your questions are not welcome.

    I hope things work out with the family. No rush.


    I hate to tell you, but your 'good friend' has dropped you like a hot potato. Same thing happened when I was studying with a MS about 5 years ago. As soon as I started asking probing questions, he abruptly stopped coming over. My reaction was to write him off totally and stop attending KH meetings. Your friend is obviously a lost cause. All you can do is try to alert your family members that it IS a cult. Maybe your experience will wake them up. Hope things go well. PS: ask your wife if she has any good explanation as to why your 'friend' broke off contact with you, after you started asking sincere questions.

    Seems to be the mo. The sister I was studying with used to text me and check on me etc. But since our last study a few months ago when I asked her my questions, nothing. And she was supposed to research my questions and have answers for our next study. I am still waiting on those answers!

    You guys are obviously asking the wrong questions.

    You know full well where the right questions are: At the foot of the page in the Study Edition of the Watchtower.

    No other questions are necessary.

    Shame on you.

    You have only yourselves to blame.

    Made the mistake of mentioning that I found out

    that the gb say they are the mediators for us, not

    christ. Well big reaction, my friend loudly stated that

    this is a lie..............:-( !!!!!

    Going on two years now......still no contact & she

    still has not looked it up to prove if I was a 'liar'or not!

    So my friendship wasn't worth very much to her!


    Omg these people are so damaged in the head!

    Well i guess on the positive side it can be " counted" at least the study conductors maintainded contact after Baptisam, when they couldn't count hours. You see we all have our redeeming qualities.

    The issue is never actually about the content of the question, but the very fact that a question was EVEN ASKED!

    NEVER doubt Jehovah's appointed channel.....
    NEVER question the organization....

    Once we have invested too much in a scam we strangely develop a vested interest in supporting it at all costs to save face.
