I was deleted as the COBE after I let my Adult child move back home and he admitted that he fornicated under my roof while my wife and I where away on a RBC project. Of course the Elder mode in me kicked him out of the house.
The Elders moved quickly to remove me because I was too involved in "Theocractic Activities", I had neglected my Adult Son.
I accepted this primarily because I didn't want to serve with a BOE that did not want me. I was devastated however because it was the only life I knew. This also took a heavy weight off me and allowed me see what the pressures of the common JW (Regular Publisher), experience. You see the wife and I were also Regular Pioneers at the time, some 38 years together. We were as hardcore as it gets, looking down on others who could not match "our zeal", with the same circumstances as us. We stopped Pioneering also after my deletion, which gave me more free time to see what's out there. Here I am at this site.
