So the past couple of years, I’ve read several stories about Jws who left the Organization at an early age because they knew something wasn’t right------But they Never bothered to research the religion.
There was this feeling that the Watchtower was not God’s only channel. So they left at an early age. Many went to College to become engineers, doctors, lawyers, psychologists, Scientists, and other higher level educated people.
They even married non-jws and raised a family.
And here comes the problem. Regardless of how educated they got, regardless of the fact that they cut off all association with Jehovah’s Witnesses, ------ they still believed Noah’s flood happen, 1914 was the beginning of the last days, demons were real and had a desire for beautiful women, --------and DON’T READ APOSTATE SITES.
And these lingering beliefs, are passed on to the children------INADVERTENTLY!
I've read many experiences where the parent left the organization but didn't get rid of the indoctrination, only to unintentionally pass the "WT Ideas" to the children. The children in turn started studying with JWs when they left the house and had their own family. And eventually the children got baptized and had no choice but to shun their parents for the rest of the parent's life. Not allowing the grandchildren to even visit grandmother because she didn't serve Jehovah.
There is no way around it, in order to free yourself completely from Watchtower indoctrination, in most cases you need help. A person needs to visit some legit exjw sites or read legit exjw books like “Gentile Times Reconsidered. A person can do it on his own but I will take longer, and the research will be harder.
Here is the latest daily experience of a lady who left 16 years ago and finally gave herself permission to look at an APOSTATE SITE.
These are her words;
I’m 16 years out. I have to work on some long overdue reprogramming......It will help me teach my daughter independent thinking when she’s older.
