A good question is would you be more happy not knowing what you now know?
were you more happy PIMI? Are all the PIMIs more happy than the the PIMOs or the POMOs?
Look at Lloyd Evans and the mess he has made of his life he is unhappy and talks about suicidal attempts.
Is ignorance bliss?
option 1. Possibly believe something not true (JW interpretation of the Bible) but it makes you happy if you stick to it. Ignorance being bliss.
option 2. Come to the realisation what you believe is wrong and you have wasted so much time believing something not right. You end up unhappy even bitter and resentful. Now you don’t know what to believe.
Or is there a third option where you choose informed ignorance. I know the GB have been wrong about many things and I know they are still wrong about many things. But there is a chance they are right about some things. And I’m comfortable in not knowing the entire truth about these things.
Im PIMA not committing either way, sitting on the fence as it were. Maybe the Bible is the word of God and maybe it isn’t. Either way I love studying it and I also love being part of the congregation of JWs.
But I often wonder would I be happier if I could go back and be fully PIMI?
