I received this E-mail this morning and have been thinking about it all day. Maybe I shouldn't be posting this since it is an E-mail addressed to me, but I want your opinions. What I did is I left out the name. I hope you don't mind.

I answered with this. Probably way too emotional, but maybe you can address him with more logic than I can
I was in this org for 30 years!! I really thought it was the Truth. I did my utmost best;. I followed all the advice. Come on my man, let's get real! How can a just God have an org that has shares which link them to the military? At approximately the same time they acquired these shares, they signed up at the UN. Does the Governing Body have a policy to protect the children or do they hurt them by allowing sexual predators to roam free? Think man!!!! Think. Everyone in a cult is vastly convinced it's the Truth. They had me for 30 Years!! God's org will have to be what I was always looking for. Full of Love, Justice, Righteousness, Peace, etc. I have not found this by the leaders of the Watchtower. They care about the org more than righteousness, they have not stood for the weak, for the children, for the widow and the one carrying a lot of weight. Instead they have abused the brothers and sisters. What does Revelation say.about situations like this? "Get out of her my people if you do not want to share in her sins". Check the facts. Don't take anyone's word for it. I wish it was the Truth, then I would never have left. Loving people do not act like this. Sorry. I'm not the apostate. The ones that are, know it very well. Men that have destroyed many families and are still very busy doing it. Get out while you still can!!! That's the best advice you will get for many many years. Be free. Isn't it that the Bible says: "Where My Spirit is there's freedom"? You will find rules and laws within the WT walls, not freedom. love............................Andy
