After 1975, the vast majority remained as though nothing has happened. But some left the organization. However, there arose a third category who did not leave the organization, but brought a new view into their heart: “JWs are right in their core cause (God’s Kingdom as the solution to mankind’s problems) but may or may not be right in their supplementary teachings, hence are not bothered about changes happening in this unimportant area.”
In recent years, these individuals are becoming more and more connected with each other in absolute confidentiality. I am one among them. We freely share our thinking and views. Interestingly, we all think alike although we were, in the past, disconnected and found far flung. We all apply Ecclesiastes 12:12 (too many writings, reading them all is wearisome to us) primarily to WT writings and even to Scriptures. We give importance only to those verses dealing with God’s Kingdom and the Kingdom qualities needed to inherit it (such as Mathew 9:13; 25:31-40)
JW system is like a caterpillar (like a worm), and those who have cultivated Kingdom qualities are like the butterfly (like a magical creature of beautiful colors that flies) and they are found in “all nations” not just among JWs. (Mathew 25:32) If anyone has the Kingdom qualities, he is already ‘on the right side’ of God, qualified to “inherit the Kingdom.” (Mathew 25:34).
