I got this e-mail from my mother. I sent her CoC and many, many docs documenting all the false prophocies. She does not want any part of the real "truth."
I now am going to have to send her a letter detailing my thoughts. I have tried to discuss these issues and she always hangs up. (she is in Chicago, I am in Ohio)
Her mind is clearly closed. I really thought she might start to think for herself. She likes being a JW sheep, being told what to do, how to do it and getting justification for her actions. She is a cowardly, spineless, thoughtless moron.
It just makes me sick. She does not even know, and is unwilling to look up, the term "apostate" and learn what it really means.
I read all this stuff. As I said to you, I will continue to worship Jehovah and believe in the Bible.
As for disfellowshipped individuals: When they are d.f.'s, some return and some go on to become apostates (people who want to get revenge against J.W.'s).
Apostates sometimes twist or color their stories, sometimes outright lie to justify or minimize what they did wrong. Whatever are their own personal motives is their own business. They want to beat up on Jehovah's Witness for catching them and disciplining them for doing something which they knew was violating Bible principles. Sometimes, they want to collect a following for themselves, so they band stand. Sometimes they want to pull others down.
In any case, we can see how they band together for support. You read the stuff they put out there like it's 100% truth. How do you know that?
If anybody is unjustly d.f.'d, they can appeal to Society who will look into the matter and make corrections.
In the meantime, why are you so against J.W's? Nobody d.f.'d you or shunned you.
So, what's with the band wagon? Sounds like you are trying to convince me to dump Jehovah and dump being one of Jehovah's Witnesses and follow you. I cannot do that. You have a free will to do or follow your heart and I choose to follow Jehovah and stick with his organization.
I love you,
