I'm one of those sad souls you reference. I still attend because if I don't, I will lose my entire family and at least a portion of my social circle. Maybe you know me. I'm that ex-elder that decided to step down, never comments, and has a look of despair in his eyes. Likely, most people in the hall have already judged me that I've done something terrible to lose my position. When in fact, all I've done is looked at the facts and see that JWs are NOT the true religion and that such a think likely doesn't exist. So many of the doctrines don't add up and many of the recent changes don't jive with other current teaching making a bit of a mess. Yet, it's somehow my fault that I can't just smile and accept anything handed to me in direct contrast to Paul's advice.
Yet I'm a wolf in sheep's clothing? Ok, if that's what you think. Meanwhile, I'm trying to live a good life and keep my extended family together. What's sad is that I have to pretend to be something I'm not because if I don't, everyone will shun me thinking they are helping.
Oh, and by the way, you also are blaspheming against Jehovah by your very presence here in direct violation of the admonition given by the faithful slave to avoid sites like this. You should go to your elders and confess.
