    Excellent topic.

    Even if none respond, they will certainly realize that they are unable.
    It is a club and the worship is superficial.

    One the first lie is confirmed, it's over for being a JW.
    I hate that they lied to us. What a waste of time...

    So, my lurking friends out there.....please consider:

    1. What actual worship did you do at the meetings or gatherings?

    2. What do you actually learn or take away with you, in a 'spiritual' sense from the meetings or gatherings?

    Well Punk, as an ex -lurker, I hope it's ok I answer your questions.😀

    Q) What actual worship did you do at the meetings or gatherings?

    A) Ego.

    Q) what do ( did) you actually take away with you in a "spiritual" sence from the meetings and gatherings?

    A) A feeling of belonging and being involved. But I have taken away similar feelings not on a spiritual basis but by attending football matches and rock concerts.

    And that's life. we want to belong so the congregation is like our football team, and " true supporters" are there through the good times and the bad times. Now the owners of football clubs are the G.B. The star players in the team are the Elders. And you know what neither care about the supporters.

    Now great football teams have local rivals, as witnesses we called them " false Christians". The only difference is football owners, star players, and supporters can change teams with out being completely hated.

    Anyway the way I see the witness organisation, is that it's a team on the down, no longer playing for the title, instead fighting a regulation battle and only the most loyal supporters remain.

    Good illustration Rebel! Thought provoking questions, Punk!

    Great tread. My brother always tells me that you know a tree by it;s fruit. What are the JW fruits?

    What good comes from the WTS services?

    I have thrown down the gauntlet.

    Vid - Don't panic, Captain Mainwaring. Don't panic. JWs are used to the cog dis, it comes with the territory.

    Sofia - Yes. I wonder why they need reminding of that constantly? Because they're not?
