Roll Call for the benefit of Newbies and Lurkers. In One Sentence tell why you left the Org.
When the governing body suddenly announced: 'We (and only us GB clowns) are the faithful and discreet slave! Screw the rest of anointed on earth!' c. 2012 AD or CE (hahahaha)
Inaccurate and harmful doctrines based on an ancient book that is full of totally inappropriate content.
I started a research project to find objective evidence to strengthen my faith in Jehovah and the Bible, found a lot of evidence that disproves major parts of JW theology, and found no evidence that supports the idea that any gods actually exists.
Brilliant thread 👍

The entire history of the WTBTS has consisted of presenting speculation as God-directed truth, of which total belief and obedience is expected, only to change it when it is proven wrong- while still claiming to be directed by God.
I couldn't tolerate the cultural aspects of JWs that I grew up with. Their stance against education, the shunning of non-members, the belittling of women, and the mishandling of physical and sexual abuse within families in the congregations was enough for me to abandon ship. I observed all of these things first hand or experienced them myself. It was later after I left that I decided to do research and determined it was just another religion.
I grew up, and I couldn't imagine living an adult JW life.
I left because it was hometime.
