    That was the basic premise of my leaving too. I knew that though JW's touted John 13:35 as an identifying mark of true Christians, it wasn't being applied.
    When I went to the elder's for help one time, I told them straight out that my husband and I were spiritually weak. I told them that no one ever invited us over, although I had invited and went all out for countless one's, they told me I needed to be more hospitable.

    Dear Wounded,

    To my knowledge the only Apostate gathering on the east coast was a very small one last month in Conneticut. I think only three people showed. I would think some fun-loving soul would send out an invitation to come to their ranch and hang out for a weekend and swap stories and gustatory delights. I know I plan on doing so once I get established in Oregon. Mutual support seems to me has to be more than works on a screen!

    G'day mooshell,

    I'm a big bad apostate from NSW (born and raised in Adelaide - walked away from 'the truth' way back in 1986) I discovered JW discussion boards on the net about 18 months ago.

    Most folk here are either disfellowshipped, disasociated or just 'weak in the truth' (stopped going to meetings and forgot to go back

    There are some wonderfull people posting here (really genuine good people) and some nutters - from Jesus preachers to egomaniacs.

    I hope you enjoy posting and make a friend or three, cheers unclebruce.

    thanks for you honesty unclebruce
    i got to admit i am not that good at getting to meetings at the moment, my mum is disassocitated, she turned catholic, so i guess that is pretty apostate.
    i am glad there are aussies on this site, usually everything is american.
