Don't be so afraid to let the truthbknown! Devoting yourself to men and their rules puts you in a precarious position with Jehovah. Be like the Boreans who, as I'm sure you are well aware, "checked to see if these things were so".
I'll be honost here. I was baptized in 1985 when the baptismal questions were changed. Do you know what I'm talking about? Anyhoo, I made it 12 years before I really started to learn about the org. that I belong to. I am trying to be like the Boreans. So, don't stick your head in the sand like I did for so long. If you want to be ignorant, that's your choice. But if you want to learn more, as I suspect you might, because of your visits to the other sites, stick around.
Simon has provided a valuable service for JW's. The title of this board is what it is. "Apostate" or not, He has shown care and love for JW's and everyone else. The internet has opened up a vast source of info for us. Some of it is good and some not so good. Use your powers of intellect and research to decipher what is accurate and not accurate. Why should we be willing to close our minds and follow just the words of a few men in Brooklyn? Makes no sense to me.
"Enjoy God's creation, ride a dirt bike!"
