If I was ever to go back now, I would be a hypocrite as I could not put faith in how things are done.
The Bible I trust, but the man made organization, ANY organized religion I choose to never have a part of again.
Being sexually abused by an adult JW, when I was 14, and how matters now days are handled, by silence....just wrong.
Yeah I've actually been reading up on Jehovah's Witnesses because we have some that come to our door and me and my roomie have been talking to them regularly.
I'm actually astonished at many of their beliefs, and you're right, ever since the problem arose with people leaving the JW's because none of their "predictions" came true, they started this disfellowshipping thing.
They decided to start requiring that people not question any of their teachings, and not to even research other beliefs and stuff because looking at materials that aren't JW published is made akin to being in league with the devil and puts your salvation in jeopardy.
So it's tough speaking to a JW because they aren't allowed to consider anything you say, for fear of being booted and thinking they will lose favour with God. If you ever have a JW come to your door, ask that they read the founding fathers (of the early Christian Church).
Because they respect the founding fathers, and quote them on various occasions, but never cite WHERE they got the quotes from.
The reason being, if they actually READ the founding fathers, they'd find in the same works they're quoted from in JW literature, the founding fathers are explaining and proving theological truths that are entirely contrary to what the "quote" is supposedly saying.
For example, they quote many of the founding fathers to prove that the Trinity cannot be true, however, those exact same writings they quoted from, specifically point out there being three persons in one God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
The point is, JW's SHOULD be allowed to read the founding fathers, since considering they quote them in JW literature, there should be no reason it's considered "anti-JW" material. just let them read it for themselves and it will all be very obvious... I still hold some of the beliefs to heart, but after being a JW for so long, and seeing all that a person does as a long time member, things swept under the rug, not to question, how that 3 men, (elders) can decide if a person is repentant or not is just wrong.
