male...56 years old...wife is not a Witness...3 children...own my own business...my mom,brothers,most of my cousins are all Witnesses...never held any position in the congregation...baptised in 1974(too young... but they scared me because 1975 was close to the end)...married a non-believer(which caused many problems for my wife and I)...never pioneered or put in more than 8 hours a month...inactive for over 10 years. The Elders and family pretty much gave up on me to try to do more. I will tell you all the problems I have with the WTS: too many meetings...repetition of material...the name Jehovah...baptizing minors...disfellowshipping of minors or anyone who does not wish to remain in the congregation...the translation of the New World Translation...time slips for field service hours...young children being called ministers...the constant reminder of The Faithful and Discreet Slave (who make themselves more important than Jesus)...all the rules and regulations in every aspect of your life...the constant reminder to do more...the reasons they give are always lies as to what is happening in the WTS...the fighting between congregation members...no reading of any other source other than the WTS material...and on and on.
