calvin rouse describes himself as "general counsel for the national organization of jehovah's witnesses out of brooklyn, new york.".
while representing one of the defendants during a trial held in san mateo county court in redwood city, california, on february 22, 2012, rouse made this amazing statement:.
"ordinarily, i wouldn't be here, but this is one our 13,000 congregations in the united states.

ever tried going to a kh where no one knew you and actually interacted with the congregation?.
i was thinking of doing this just to see what people would say to me and see if they would try to have a bible study with me

i have fully rejected the false religion of jehovah's witnesses - after 43 years a believer in the nonsense.
now though, i often find that i still filter the world thru watchtower spectacles, even after almost three years out.
i don't do it on purpose, in fact i defy the wt doctrine whenever i can and work hard to change my mindset to more 'moderate christian' thinking.

if you've read my previous posts you'll know that my relationship with my mom has had its ups and downs since i left the org.
while my parents (both jw) still speak to me, the relationship has been strained.
well, this past week i got up the courage to call her and invite her to lunch, something we haven't done since i da'd last august.

did you use the bible to support the magazines?.
it was only in the last year or so before i 'saw the light' that it dawned on me.
i knew co's who could quote wt texts, page and line, but almost never really used the bible.

i was just reminiscing about things i remember being said to me by elders about disfellowshipping.
a person can be disfellowshipped because of gross sin(could mean anything), being unrepentant etc.
an elder said to me that a person may be disfellowshipped even though he is repentant if it is gross sin and his sin widely known.. so my question is why doesn't this also apply to the governing body?
