I have been studying with Jehovah's Witnesses for approximately two years. Initially, I liked the studies and felt that I was growing closer to God. However, as the studies progressed, they seemed to become increasingly negative and I did not like what I was being taught.
I no longer want to continue studying but I don't have the courage to say that to the Witnesses.
I have seen people be disfellowshipped and I do not want to subject myself to that. It appears to me that the most appropriate approach is to slowly drift away but that is difficult to do when the witnesses keep in contact with me and I run into them in public consistently. I fear the repercussions of ending the study.
