How I became a JW - Part 1

    Hi Guest 77: I didn't reveal my name in trhe past because of two things: 1. It seemed to me that most, maybe 99% of the ex0JW community enjoyed the privacy of being annonymous, and I felt if others were private, then so would I be private; 2. I was given credible warning by some non-JWs to remain incognito for a few years after I left the Watchtower ... which I did do ... but, I feel that the concerns that once existed have passed.

    None of this has anything to do with whether I claimed to be among the JW anointed. While I was a JW, I had no doubts because of the structure of the JW belief system ... upon leaving the religion, I took to traditional Christianity which views 'anointing' as a relatively minor feature enjoyed by all Christians. Since then, I have forgotten about 'anointing' in general, as it no longer holds any meaning for me.

    Interesting reading your tales.

    (Incidently, my 'how I became a JW' tale is a little shorter. I was born., wait....that's it. )
