  • smiddy3

    No,there were many ,many little things that built up over time.

  • waton

    no, I actually always like some generic controls.

  • Phizzy

    No, I only became aware of the extent of Authoritarianism and Mind Control after I left, as well as other things, the spur for me to leave was the fallacy/downright lie, of the 1914 Doctrine, which simply is nonsense, and therefore the G.B are self appointed Charlatans.

    I left because i didnt believe in god, wasnt prepared to uphold the blood transfusion ban and was totally fed up with the whole farce.

    Because they use physiological manipulation to slowly erode the person you are to someone they want you to become it's so slow you don't notice like the example of the frog in a pot of cold water then you turn the heat on low the frog doesn't notice till to late.

    It the same process that domestic abusers use would you deliberately fall in love with that person if you knew that .

    No, because I found out that what they teach isn't true.

    That's the story they like to propogate though, that any who leave JWs do so for selfish motive, etc.

    It started my exit.

    Enforced nonbiblical prerequisites.

    The straw that broke this camel's back was that an elder got in a tiff that I called my fellow congregants by their first name. (e.g. Brother James, Sister Kathy, Brother Richard...etc) instead of using their family names (e.g. Brother Smith, Sister Jackson, Brother Miller...etc).

  • Tameria2001

    I'll repeat what neat blue dog said, No, because what they teach is a lie. One thing I don't have time for is and that is when someone is jerking my chain, life is much too short for that crap.

    No. I stopped believing it was the truth. Then I started to think of all the things that I could be doing if I wasn't a witness.
