[W]hy is it that you talk as a collective and express yourself like you're better than everyone else for celebrating [your black mass]?
Jehovah's Witnesses is a collective organization; we "all speak in agreement, and … [are] fitly united in the same mind and in the same line of thought." (1 Cor. 1:10) One cannot be "submissive to the good news about the Christ" unless willing to be submissive "to those who are taking the lead" among us. (2 Cor. 9:13; Heb. 13:17) One simply cannot be one of Jehovah's Witnesses while holding onto and teaching unprofitable doctrines in opposition to the good news.
I thnk the best part of not being a JW anymore is you lose that superiority complex and Borg collective mentally.
You were never one of Jehovah's Witnesses, were you? if you were of our sort, you would certainly not be saying that you are no longer "being a JW anymore." Even if disfelowshipped, you would have sought and be seeking reinstatement.
Being one of Jehovah's Witnesses might be likened to being the owner of a 200-unit condominum complex called The Palm; if you should not be an owner one of one of these condos—even if you had at one time held a deed of trust on one of them and have in the past been entitled to use and regularly used the amenties that this complex provides—you cannot rightly claim to be an owner of any of the condos at The Palm.
To follow on in this arcane analogy, whatever the CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions and Regulations) by which condo owners are governed at The Palm, if you are not numbered among the owners of these 200 units, you cannot be compelled to adhere to any of the provisions contained in the CC&Rs. Even disfellowshipped Jehovah's Witnesses, who are, in effect, homeowners whose condo unit may at present be in jeopardy of loss, do not lose their property interest unless they die.
What "superiortiy complex"? To what "Borg collective mentality" do you refer?
As I said earlier, we "all speak in agreement,” and "are of the same mind and have the same love, being joined together in soul, holding the one thought in mind." (1 Cor. 1:10; Php. 2:2) This is, in fact, the "collective mentality" of all Jehovah's Witnesses. "
Jehovah's Witnesses believe their spiritual comprehension to be superior to all "reasonings and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God" (2 Cor. 10:5), even if you and others may not agree with this conclusion, but if you are not one of Jehovah's Witnesses, what is this to you? I believe I have the right to believe my congressperson is dishonest, that one grocery chain is more expensive than another, that my property taxes are too high, that it is unconstitutional for President Trump to have launched 59 Tomahawk missles at a sovereign nation that had not attacked us here in the US without congressional approval. You have the same right as I do to believe the exact opposite as to all of these things I just mentioned.
Can the right to choose what to believe and not believe, what to reject and what to accept as true, and to take one's own beliefs seriously or not be aptly described as a "superiority complex"? I don't think so.
