When I was a young teenager one of my friends stabbed another in the arm with a hunting knife. I was a witness to the event and we were all appalled by it. But being kids after a few months when the victim wasn’t around we would try to get this guy to come out and play with us . Why, well we needed the extra body. See we played football in the street all the time and he lived on our street. He was pretty good but more importantly we often were short a person for a good game. So in time we started proding him to come out and play.
I think of this experience and about why JWs do what they do. We looked the other way in time because of a selfish need. I think that’s part of the problem with JWs. Thier in a cult and they have been taught some really stupid stuff and they also have been witnessed to some crap. But they stay because it’s their social club thier social life. You try to reason with them you show them all the lies and mistakes but they just don’t want to leave even when they don’t believe most or at least some of it. Why again the same reasons why we as kids looked past the fact that the kid we played football with us had stabbed another friend. We were selfish and I think that’s a large part of the problem with humans in general and JWs. They don’t want to loose what they have their selfish.
