It has been an experience to say the least. I accepted eagerly the teachings of the Watchower Bible and Tract Society over the last 7 years. I have been a dedicated Pioneer for four of those years. I thought what I was teaching to others was the "TRUTH" and would always stand as the "Truth". The Bible say's that God does not lie, nor does he change. The WT declaring themselves as God's channel of communication to me at one time was the "TRUTH". I can accept this no longer. In my ignorance I accepted many lies as teachings from God.
The Watchtower has changed doctrines and teachings over and over without regard to its adhearants of those teachings. When questioned, the WT disposes of such ones as evil. I do not think it evil to use the mind God gave us and question what could be or is blattently wrong. In my ignorance I excused the WT and made things up as I went along as to not make waves with what I thought was Jehovah's appointed channel.
I feel like I have not only cheated those I have witnessed to, but also I feel I have cheated God in teaching things he had no part of, but were only the mindless controlling babblings of men that think more of themselves than the welfare of others.
To make this brief, I wish to thank most of all Friend. By (most)of your statements not only on this board, but what I have read on other sites, I realize that Satan is alive and out to mislead many into thinking that a lie is the "TRUTH". I used to defend the organization in like manner. Thank God I can now see through the deception that a religion of any kind does not have a monopoly on "TRUTH", or what is required of God to be acceptable by him.
I feel there are many sincere intelligent people on this forum and thank all of you for your posts and replies. I disassociated myself by written letter yesterday because I can no longer in good conscience continue to believe or teach what the Watchtower tells me is "TRUTH". Fortunately my wife and children are behind me in this decision.
I pray that none of you see me in a bad light. Please excuse the term (LIGHT). I am sick of this term also.
