    Is there anything that will make that loyal Witness ever see the light?? You know, that well respected elder, Pioneer, or Witness who has been in the “Truth “ for decades.

    who has been in the “Truth “ for decades.

    They will die believing the WT is the truth just like all those millions who died believing the Sun revolved around the earth.

    We haven't reached that particular time "YET" when all JWs see the truth for what it is--A big Con job"

    But young ones like me are seeing it and leaving.

    Need to let time take care of those well respected elders, Pioneers, or Witness who has been in the “Truth “ for decades.

    I say another 30 years and they are done!

    If someone doesn't value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide to prove that they should value it? If someone doesn’t value logic, what logical argument could you provide to show the importance of logic? -Sam Harris

    I believe there is always SOMETHING that can get to a JWs heart and or mind.

    I know a few über PIMI's and they're looking at something happening within the next 5 years max, after that I think they'll be out.

    For me, it was having to pass on the teachings of the watchtower to my kids. I could live in a Gray zone of not believing everything where I was picking and choosing what to believe and not. But with kids... there is no Gray zone. So I left.

    Maybe if they passed out kool aid, everyone drank. No poison, just plain kool aid. Then telling everyone who drank, it was a test of loyalty.

    Was Lou Rawls ever a JW? He has that "bossy elder" look.

    I think there is a base of JWs that just don’t want to think about anything else, and prefer being told what to do, and would do nothing to jeopardize their social spiritual network. I think there is a far larger group that knows it is probably all BS, and are struggling through.

    The end not coming, new light changes, shunning of loved ones etc must eat away at normal folks shouldn’t it???? 😞🤔
