Thanks for mentioning that an elder approached you to tell you that you are “materialistic” to get you to quit your good paying job and pursue a crappy one!
I’m happily retired today and all these hypocrites with cushy lives who told ME to pursue poverty- have passed away after having lived a cushy life. No poverty for these bastards! But, yet they tried to ruin me!
I can get down on my hands and knees in thankfulness that I never listened to the foolishness and bullshit in the Witness religion!
