I've heard some weird stories coming from JWs about the paranormal. I know about the warnings about items that come from unbelievers -- those don't interest me as much. What I am interested in are actual experiences in stories of the paranormal you've heard or experienced yourself.
Are there any urban legends that tend to circulate primarily among JWs, or have you actually experienced any strange or inexplicable things that you would label the paranormal? For those born into the religion, do you think the Society's emphasis on the paranormal or on demons affect your religious beliefs when you were young or tended to assist the Society in exerting control on your beliefs? Do you think it made you more fearful as a child or as an adult?
