Totally ignoring the troll who started this post but the reactions of others are very interesting.
"The Searcher" (great US TV comedy program back in the 80s by the way) they are amazing questions and I agree with you totally. I'm an active JW and have nothing against most of my fellow witnesses. However, the great majority are in a bubble with their critical thinking stifled, especially as more and more emphasis is being placed on loyalty to the organisation and their literature.
It's such a relief and great satisfaction to just discuss doctrine based on the scriptures and not the interpretation of them by the WTS. Comparing other Bible translations is also a good way to get perspective on what we really believe.
Thanks again Searcher!
