Time to revive this well known, and often used JW illustration!
"If you are in desperate need of a drink of water, and the glass in front of you is 99% clean, but contains just 1% poison, would you drink it??"
How often we heard this trotted out from the platform.
Recently though, I have heard many examples of still-in JWs sharing their observations about things that don't seem quite right with the current activities, direction and culture of the organization. They share comments with ones who are fading or who have left about things that trouble them; EVEN observing the SERIOUS issues brought up by the mishandling of sex abuse cases worldwide.
Then such ones often fall back on tired apologetic excuses like "well, where else would we go?, and who else preaches good news?, and who else uses Jehovah's name? etc etc"
So, can this illustration above be used to help such ones?
Can we say to them "If just ONE drop of poison exists in your glass of water, is it safe to drink it?!"
Maybe add "Revelation says to 'quite touching the unclean thing', so should we not do the same?"
