My defining moment was 1984, and I believe the trick to helping people out a cult is not 1975, or 1914 generation changes but finding in a cult member their individual reason to move on ...mine was 1984 and a football match a cult made me miss.
What was yours?
yes i remember 1975 and 1984. two years that important things happened in my life. I have no interest in football now and little in sport generally.
the year for me was 1967 and witnessing to the boy who sat in front of me in the classroom. I went home at lunchtime as usual and was going to return with my bible to show him some scriptures. When I went home I read the scriptures and was puzzled and looked it up in the Watchtower. I accepted what it said but didn't want to share it with him.
Over 25 years later I read in the Watchtower what I knew in 67 and that was the beginning of leaving.
