I came across a YouTube video published on August 11th of this year called "Watchtower Threw Out 130 Years of Bad "Spiritual Food" with One Talk" by Leonard East. (Sorry, I still haven't learned how to put up a link.)
As I read the introduction from the publisher, I remembered that very talk and how I felt when I heard it. Betrayed, deceived and incredulous!
All those years struggling to figure out the meaning of all that type/anti-type stuff. Just to find out it was completely wrong. Another waste of time for all who were supposedly "diligently searching the scriptures." 😫
It was only about a year and a half before their whole house of cards collapsed for me. I only wish it had been sooner. I really hope it led many others to do the same. If that wasn't a wake up call, I don't know what is.
Does anyone else remember being in attendance for that talk? What did you think, did you discuss it with anyone else at the time? I know I didn't dare. Governing Body, and Holy Spirit you know, apostasy to think for yourself and even worse to openly say so. Crazy cult!
