Jer. 15:23---"can a leopard change its spots?"....GENERALLY,you are who you are. If you were a jealous person 20 yrs. ago,you PROBABLY are of the jealous type today. If your brain tends to work critically, it always will. Many here have gotten a revelation over a period of time about how we realize that we should never treat people with Pharasaical attitudes. We hate the way we were treated. We hate that we were lied to. Yet, many of our "old world" Jehovah's Witness attitudes continue to rear their ugly head. Those that were victimized by the Watchtower may still be victimized by society.Those that were leaders and followers of the organization will probably carry their respective roles in another way.People can change but most usually don't.
