I'm a baptized jw...been baptized for 8 years...and throughout the years I've been baptized I see "hypocrisy" so to speak in the religion...when you're new and NOT BAPTIZED that's when the jws want to invite you to every gathering they have, they want to APPEAR like they're your best friend...they want to help you out when needed and so forth...HOWEVER, ONCE you're baptized you go to the elders for help they don't help you....all they do is gather you around the office...have bibles in hand and so forth...they give you articles as well, instead of PHYSICALLY helping you out....but yet when you weren't baptized they would physically help you out and not throw scriptures and articles in your face. Also when you ask for help and so forth with the bros/sisters they want to throw the "each one must carry his/her own load" scripture at you.....but yet what happened to the scripture of taking care of widows and people who are orphans?
It's not just ONE CONGREGATION...throughout the 8 years i've been baptized i've been through many kingdom halls...many towns...many states...when i was inactive for awhile I even pretended to not be baptized and just play dumb when the witnesses came to my door...they're much nicer to you when you're not baptized then when you are baptized...why is that?
There are also some people who've seen my social media pages that i no longer had but didn't know the log in credentials to deactivate my account and they want to judge me for what username i used and what i've posted when i wasn't even baptized whether then judge me on the person i am now.
Now I see why people say they don't want to be a part of an organized religion...that they used to be christians but they no longer believe in god and so forth.
When I'm at conventions and assemblies and hear of the baptism talks as of late...and the person on the platform says there will be people in the org that will disappoint you....and i'm like thinking yep...you're already preparing them for this....but they have no ideal what they're getting into....and as i'm looking at the people that are about to be baptized....i'm looking at them as future inactives and disfellowshipped people once they go through trialsome times...such as death...your relatives get taken into foster care...and so forth....
I would love to talk to the elders about it, but then they'd either mark me and judge me...and I'm "thinking" this is a safe place to go to without being judged and ridiculed and marked...
I don't even feel like going out in the ministry....because why preach about something with a group of people that pretends to be your best friend when you're not a witness so you can join the group.. but yet when you become a witness they're no longer your best friend?
