“With so many religions and religious denominations --many which demand exclusive and rigid devotion-- the odds are that most people will fall short.”
One real problem for all PIMIs is that they have been brainwashed to feel guilty about absolutely everything. They have been programmed to go tell the elders about everything they may feel guilty about.
Many feel guilty they are not doing enough ministry or due to what the GB say they just feel they should be doing more study or doing more in the congregation. They feel guilty they watch slightly inappropriate entertainment. This eats away at them and it’s very detrimental to their physical and mental health that they just can’t live upto the ideal that the GB have put out there.
I know of at least a few brothers who viewed porn and the guilt was eating them up. They had to go tell the elders. It’s often sexual repression and it leads to other problems.
But when you think about it porn and masterbation is very common and not that bad, certainly not bad enough to have guilt eating away at you. Some experts say it’s ok to release tension rather than have repressed feelings building up inside you.
Maybe JWLITE would be an absolute saviour for some who wake up to the fact that the GB are misguided and are wrong about many things. JWLITE means you do have to keep somethings to yourself and certainly not go tell the elders about every questionable thing you do or view in your own personal privacy.
No more having guilt eating away at you.
I know this would help
