" Religions do not volunteer their most offensive doctrines to newcomers "
The above sentence was posted on another thread as part of a quote taken from JWfacts .
l commented that this was a sweeping generalisation of the kind often made about all religions . l asked how does the person making the statement know about hidden doctrine if it is only made known to the initiated in that religion . Does he have intimate knowledge of all faiths ?
Obviously most of the people on this forum do know about The Watchtower and it's practise of hiding much of it's teaching until a newcomer has been suitably prepared .
So has anyone on here joined a faith group only to find that there were unpalatable teachings that they were not aware of until they were fully initiated ?
