I hope you are well?! I have a few questions that I'd like to adress (if you don't mind of course)
A.For the converts/ex-converts (more specifically those of you who have no family members in the organization):
1.What brought you in the Organization( were you a broken soul, were you looking for a higher purpose, were you curious? Did you receive a call from God? ...
2.What made you start questioning the organization (the social cliques? The members patronizing attitude? The gossip? Some false prophecies you came across? The internet?...)
3.When you got baptized, did the "friends" try to isolate you from your loved ones?
4.When you left, Did you have some friends/family that you could return to? Was it hard for you?
B.For the born-in's/raised-in1.has the idea of you leaving the org and becoming what the "friends" refer to as apostates ever crossed your mind?
2.when you saw wordly people getting converted, was it for you some kind of reassurance that you were in the right path or did you think they were crazy?
3.were you strong in your faith or were you looking for the next opportunity to leave the organization.
4.what type of jw were you(the zealous type? The Spiritually-weak type? The Moderate type?the Potential fader? The holier than tough type? The humble & well-meaning type?...)
thank you in advance!
