Thanks again for the replies.. some real howlers there. Let's see how this guy measured up:

Revealing eh? I bet my mother your revelation missed these minor facts:
I started studying Witness doctrines about two years ago, the reason being that a good friend of mine was a Jehovah's Witness. I took it upon myself to free this person from the cult.
I went to libraries, borrowed every book about JWs, searched the internet, ordered stuff from Randy, read Crisis of Conscience.. I had all the tools one could think of. I was trying to prove the trinity, do everything in my power to expose this evil sect.
In all this I of course had to do extensive Bible study. First, I had to learn what my own church teaches (never been interested in religion) then prove the Watchtower wrong.
And after ALL this digging and going through the vast volumes of anti-JW literature, I began to see light shining from the Bible. I watched as most of my material fell to pieces, exposed as lies or exaggeration or just twisting the truth.. or clearly unscriptural garbage (like Randy's stuff) .. the rest of the Society's flaws was due to human imperfection. I realized that the JWs were by no means perfect - but closest to what the Bible teaches, definitely standing out from the sea of Jesus-churches and church-state hybrids out there. I studied the trinity for months, tried to prove it (had Rob Bowman's "Why you should believe in trinity" with me to help) but couldn't. Can't prove what ain't in the Bible.
So I became a publisher. First an opposer - seen all the internet sites - now a baptized Jehovah's servant.
This was to you who don't know my story yet. I've posted about it before. So don't gimme the "read Crisis of Conscience then come back" 'cause I've done it, and it failed to impress me.
So I'm an exception. I've developed immunity.
What have you got left? What ammo do you have anymore?
