the topic of losing our history, because of being raised as jw's got me to thinking about how i've raised my own children.
i have a son 17 years old, a son 15 years old and a daughter 13 years old.
needless to say they have only stepped into a kingdom hall once in their lives to attend my niece's wedding.

i was thinking recently about a fundamental scripture that jw's base their religion on, matthew 24:45-51. although i now know this is basically a parable they have interpreted as a prophecy, a more interesting question came to mind that i'm going to ask the elders if they ever show up again (they promised to investigate the un situation and get back to me - that was about 3 months ago).
if jesus is really the ruling over the christian congregation since 1914 and matthew 28:20 is true, why does he need to turn over all his belongings (i.e.
authority) to men.

it seems that for well over a century, the watchtower society has subtly controlled the minds of "thinking persons".
what ways do you think that they are most effective?

i myself was raised in the "truth" til i was df'd at the age of 21. i have often wondered that if i were allowed to grow up just as every other child did in the u.s. would i have been interested in looking at the organization and taking interest?
do any of you think and wonder the same thing?

"what would the wts have to say or do to make you leave?
where would you draw the line?".

it seems clear that the gb are hurting.
recent media attacks over pedophilia, combined with revelations of hypocrisy over the un and even personal accusations against members of the gb themselves has meant that those at the top of the ivory tower are feeling more vulnerable than ever before.
the law is increasingly being used to bring these monsters to book.. .
