i have been inactive for 5 years now.
lately i am being treated more and more as if i were disfellowshipped, which i am not.
do any of you know of anything, in writing, that is encouraging members to curtail any and all association with former members who are no longer active?.

regarding the tragedy in gresham this last week, i have nothing but sadness for the loss of that young life, and nothing but sympathy for the family and friends that mourn her.
i do, however, see the attempts being made to make sure everyone "knows" that the alleged killer was not a "real witness.".
i was raised as a jehovah's witness and remember the conversations that surrounded any criminal action by a member of the congregation.

i dont want to be bitter.
but i now understand why some or many ex-jws are bitter.
i remember when i was an active zealous jw thinking, if someone wants to leave, go ahead and leave.

truthseeker's topic on the recommended lodging list, and some of the experiences people have had, made me remember the rooming work we did before a convention that was held in our city many years ago.
we actually went door to door asking people if they had rooms they would be willing to let visiting witnesses stay in.
i don't remember anyone telling me, "yes," but i know there were people who signed up rooms.

why doesn't it occur to my friends and family that.... for one hundred years (give or take) we could prove via scriptures and greek translation that the generation jesus referred to meant that no one born in 1914 would die before the end came.. then that changed (in 1995), but we were able to prove the new "understanding" via scriptures and greek translation.. now the "understanding" is changing again.
but i'm sure we can still prove it via scripture and greek translation.. what will we be able to prove next?.
