This is one of the saddest places a person can ever be in for sure.
This is were the person is no longer in the organization physically, for whatever reason. They haven't attended meetings in years.
This person was dis-fellow-shipped or faded away. Or maybe they just couldn't live the harsh and demanding day to day life of a Jehovah's Witness. Yet even though the are out from their influence, because of the brain washing they have experienced they still believe the Jehovah Witness story is real/true.
My father was one of these people. He had been "out" for over 30 years when he told me one day out of the blue "I believe it's the truth, I just can't live it!" At the time I was still a PIMO so I snapped back with "Well I can live it, however I don't believe it's the truth anymore!"
So of course it turned out we were both wrong. Me for living the lie and him for believing the lie.
I know of at least two people who had been out for over twenty years and went back in.
The bible has a good analogy for this. "Like the dog returning to its vomit."
To be free at last but still be stuck in the mental confines of a cult, can there be a greater hell? I think not.
So all I can say is, if you are "out" physically, yet your mind is still stuck in their world do yourself a favor.
Go to the internet and study this religion. Look into the real history of this church. Look at the real truth of this organization with all it's false prophecies, "new and old light" and the many flip flops they have made over the years. Look into the cover up of how they deal with pedophiles in their organization.
Then my friends the real truth will become painfully apparent. That this church just like thousands of others out there, is an organization that is ran by delusional men and not by a god.
