If this is the state of mind among younger JW's, then that's
the best news I've heard in a long, long time and I'd happily buy you all the
beer you could hold
Thanks for the offer TD, but I’m not old enough YET and any
adult buying me alcohol can get in trouble. -------Soon though!
I would say the majority of young ones around my age don’t
buy into the blood doctrine. We’re not about to let go of our life for some
stupid and crazy idea. Most of our parents know our intentions and silently
just don’t say anything to anyone in the congregation
Like my mom used to
“If you don’t want to follow the directions of the slave,
then that’s between you and God’s Earthly
And if you want to hire some lawyer to write your own dual
power of attorney for health care, (Hint, Hint) then that’s between you and
Jehovah. You’ll have to research a good attorney dealing with power of attorney
for health stuff and you will have to pay the lawyer with your own money. You’re 18 now and it
should be your own decision. I’m not going to get involved.
That’s was a couple of years ago. And I could tell my
parents were relieved that if something happened to me, I carried a copy of my
power of attorney with me in case of some accident, and my non-jw uncle was
named in my power of attorney to make decisions for me in case I was unconscious
and not able to choose for myself. My parents were out of the loop and I
believe they were happy my non jw uncle was in charge.
I do have to admit that reddit for exjw helped a lot in
guiding me and encouraging me to get a lawyer and what to expect.And it was ingrained in me to never tell any JW because they are the kings and queens of gossip.
Of course there are a few die-hard young ones in every congregation who have uber
parents and want to please them, but those are few in number and usually they
are the isolated ones who are home schooled, have limited access to the internet, and want to get married real bad.
But the majority know better. There's just to much information on the web about the Watchtower's dirty little secrets.
Now imagine when I get married and have children!!!!
Do you think they will have anything to do with Watchtower
The new overlapping generation of Jws, will probably see the
fall of the Watchtower from 8 million to around 50,000 worldwide in about 30
Our children will be asking us;
“Mom, Dad, is it true that grandpa’s religion didn’t allow
them to take blood?
“Yes son that’s true!”
Man, they were really messed up weren’t they Dad?
