Heheh.. very cute! So simply put: you no longer believed in God or the Bible, or if you did, just wanted to ignore Him. The Bible gives us strict guidelines for life.. ya can't live with it, too bad! Step aside. Like you did.
Ya could have at least tried.
>How long do you think you'll be a baptized brother in good standing
As long as it takes. (Matt 24:13)
>when the elders in your congregation find out that you post to
I made it clear in the beginning that if someone needs help studying apostate garbage, they can turn to me as I believe I am the expert. I told this to our overseer, a very spiritual, respected brother, been in da troof all his life. They all know I got a 10mbit cable connection to the internet at home, and they know I'm the apostate-buster. I haven't heard one negative word about this.
>Have you made known to others in the org. that you
>post at such sites? If not then why not, in such a wonderful happy
>place of freedom as your org?
I have made known that I read the stuff occasionally, to keep up with what you guys are up to. I have not made known I post myself, as I wouldn't want any "normal" sincere JW reading the filth posted here. They should keep away, as far as possible. None of this stuff is spiritually upbuilding. Sure, the truth can still be found after digging through the crap, but it's months of work, and a waste of time. Unnecessary stuff. Brothers and sisters can just save the trouble and not read it at all.
>If so how did the ones you revealed this to react?
Usually "there's a lot of lies about us there, have to be careful". And I say "yeah, been there, done that, bought the t-shirt". It's a cool T-shirt btw.. with a nice "I survived from apostateland" written on the back.
>Again, would you reveal your activities to those in
>positions of responsibility in your org?
Well the overseer already knows.. I don't know if all our elders do. I wouldn't go on stage to announce it, no.. as I respect the Society's views on this. Reading bullshit is a waste of time and can be spiritually weakening. Any kind of association with the world can do that as we know. I consider myself a special case however.. what I see here hardly affects me anymore.
>I would greatly appreciate a response.
You got it, charlie. Hope it was fun to read!
