    Today is the four year anniversary of the last time I set foot in a Kingdom Hall.

    It was the day of the Kool-Aid issue of the WT!

    At that time, the life-saving direction that we receive from Jehovah’s organization may not appear practical from a human standpoint. All of us must be ready to obey any instructions we may receive, whether these appear sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not.” - Watchtower, November 15, 2013

    Kudos, jp!

    If that statement wouldn't wake one up, I wonder what could . . .

    Best wishes on your journey.

    Hi jp,

    Was that your last day because of the article or was it a building up of other things?

    Either way, congratulations for improving your life by leaving!

    Happy anniversary! it's been 18 years for me.

    Nice to know at least some people recognized how cultish it was to announce they were going to ask people to do really stupid things.

    There were several things I couldn’t accept over the years and that line right

    there “ follow our instructions whether or not they sound strange from a

    human standpoint” was probably the big point that finished me off. I had been

    in over 60 years now and brought in when I was six by my parents. My wife

    and I were watching a documentary a few months ago on the Waco incident

    with David Koresh. They showed a clip of him teaching his followers and I

    promise he said that same line to them almost exactly word for word. I looked

    over at my wife and she never said a word. I haven’t been to a meeting in months

    and quit the field service over a year and a half ago. I haven’t commented

    on here in a long time and I read and study the Bible and commentaries on my

    own. The wife is still in 100%. She is a born in.

    happy anniversary jp1692 Watchtower, November 15, 2013 It really boggles the mind to think so called intelligent people actually accept this statement and still support the organization that promotes it.

    They are actually told to obey an instruction from the GB that is not sound or practical ?

    And they accept that and go along with It ?

    This is an organization that is heading down the road of David Koresh /Wacol / The family and every other doomsday cult that has brought misery to those who have had any connection with them.
