I sent an email to my brother about a new truck I bought and got a reply about how the end of this system is so close and I should really return to Jehovah. My brother and his wife are studying now. I'm not DF or DA, I just quite going to the meeting about 8 years ago. Now they are hammering on me to start back. I'm worried if I say too much that they will DF me and my family won't talk to me anymore but I really want to send this response. Maybe it will make him think a little before he makes a big mistake. Read it over and feel free to add some thing I left out.
As far as going back to the meetings, no thanks. I've had my fill of having my life ran by a religion. I like thinking for myself and making my own decision. You and R----- should think really hard before you get baptized. Remember, once you are baptized you can never go back. Remember how mom and T----- wouldn't come to my wedding. Now how loving is that? The whole shunning thing really bothers me. How is it right to never associate with someone just because they don't believe what you believe anymore. Sound pretty childish to me. You guys should ask some hard questions before you do anything serious. Like why was the Society a member of the United Nations Non-Governmental Organization for 10 years when they are supposed to be no part of the world? And I really don't like how they continue to change their teaching on things. For instance, years ago it was wrong to have an organ transplant and thousands of people died, then they changed it and it was OK. Think of all of the people that have died over the years and then they just decide it's OK. The same thing is happening now with blood transfusions. They used to not allow any type of blood products, now they are allowing blood fractions. That's like saying you can't eat chicken noodle soup, but it's OK to eat chicken, noodles, and vegetables. Just doesn't make much sense to me. Millions of people have died needlessly. Doesn't sound very loving to me.
Also, did you know they change the entire 1914 generation meaning? It used to be they would say that Armageddon would come before everyone born in 1914 died. "Millions now living will never die" was the famous quote. Now they've changed it. Armageddon might not come for another hundred years. They've been saying that Armageddon is coming for over 150 years, even setting dates as to when it was coming and nothing has ever happened. It's just another way of keeping people hanging on. And if the end is coming so soon then why is the society buying up property in
These are just a few things that bother me about the Society and what they teach. I hope you guys do some research and ask allot of questions. If you still decide to be witnesses then that's just fine with me. I will still treat you the same as I always have. As for C------- and I, we are very happy and love our life together.
