    Congratulations on your anniversary of being out of the JW religion!

    I have been out many years but confess if I were still there and heard those words about ‘obeying instructions that may not appear sound....’ I would be disturbed by it. I’m sure this did not sit well with many JWs.

    Happy Anniversary jp1692. I'm glad you're no longer trapped in that dark dungeon of a cult.

    It will be twenty-nine years for me next month. It's been interesting.

    I could post more often but I feel that I would be redundant in the things I could

    relate. I had a terrible run in with an elder about 25 years ago that set me back

    mentally and emotionally. I struggled really hard after that. I was in the hospital-

    tal several times over the next few years ( admitted myself) and had trouble

    functioning with a job and trying to provide for a family. Almost ended it all at

    one point which would have relieved me but not helped my wife and four kids.

    i was diagnosed as bipolar and OCD. A few years ago I discovered that I have

    what is Pure O. I won’t go into the details of what that is but I’d suffered with

    that my whole life evidently. As the years past I calmed down quite a bit and

    finally gave up trying to deal with this religion along with other things that aren’t

    that important. I have jw family all around so I tread lightly when speaking to

    them. Don’t want my life any more complicated by spouting off something to

    one of them that’s not going to make any difference anyway. Rant over for now.

    One just has to wonder why that quote didn't cause more to awaken?


  • kairos

    I had exited just a few months prior to that article.
    After seeing it, I immediately got a sick feeling that many will die because of JWs.

    That WT quote is the gift that keeps giving, in that it will continue to wake up doubting JWs that start doing WT research.

    There is no reasonable way to interpret those directions from the GB.
