Hi guys - new poster here. I was brought up a JW in the UK and stopped going not long after I was married. That was 20 years ago so I'm not really up to date with the current doctrinal flip flops or the new youtube obsessed GB.
Came across this site while googling the name of a local elder who's just been convicted of possesion of a PC full of unpleasant pics of kids.
So, my question. This is spurred by a post I've just read about someone who's read the WT at the meeting. Going to the meetings, on the field service and all the associated crap that goes with it is hard work and takes a lot of time and commitment. It seems though that not a small percentage of those who post here, who by default must have serious doubts or are total unbelievers, are still active.
So why do you do it? It's hard work for no gain. Why not just call it quits and fade away?
I realise it's not always as black and white as that and some have family ties but life's to short to devote your life to something you don't believe in.
