    At that birthday party were any of the students beheaded by the teacher?

    I think that during my entire "career" as a pioneer I conducted a grand total of TWO Home Bible* Studies. One was with a sweet little old lady who was lonely and just wanted some attention from a handsome young man. She got me instead.

    The other Home Bible Study was with the two pre-teen daughters of a couple in our territory who had been disfellowshipped for an abortion she had after her then-youngest daughter was born. They already had three kids and didn't want more.

    I had been a regular guest in their home for at least a year when Mom told me she needed to tell me a secret. I said "OK," and she told me that in the years since the couple had been disfellowshipped, they had other additional abortions. I wrestled with this for a few days, then went to the Congregation Overseer and told him what she told me.

    I think they were disfellowshipped again. I was not asked to appear at any judicial hearings. Not too long after that I left NYC and began working on my own exit from the Watchtower cult.

    There are people on this board who think I'm a schmuck.

    I am, and I'll tell on you too. Count on it.

    None of my "studies" ever got to the point of baptism.

    Oh, yeah, I almost forgot -- the sex was FANTASTIC!

    *In the WTB&TS, the word "Bible" means "Watchtower publications explaining the Bible, but NEVER just the Bible itself."

    John Free said, " the washtowel believes that a fertilised egg is a life."

    It IS a life, isn't it? If it isn't, at what point and because of what event does it BECOME alive?

    The BEST counsel came from a 1915 July WT:

    Question.--If the I.B.S.A. headquarters should promulgate methods not understood or approved by us are we to apply Rev. 18:4, "Come out of her, My people," and if so, how?

    Answer.--I think if the I.B.S.A. can be shown to be a section of Babylon, we all ought to get out of it.
