1. How the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses is stuctured, how it operates, and how it exercises control over its members. 2. What Jehovah's Witnesses believe, why, and who determines doctrine.

It is a waste of time to argue with Jehovah's Witnesses or to present lists of scriptural proofs to show where they are in error. Jehovah's Witnesses listen only the "Faithful and Discreet Slave" and immediately accept changes that come through the pages of The Watchtower magazine.

Experience in the area

I survived 1975. For 32 years, from 1968 to 2000, I embraced and promoted everything coming through Jehovah's sole channel of communication, the "Faithful and Discreet Slave." I accepted doctrinal changes as "new light", meat in due season, from the Slave Class.

Was an elder the last 13 years, WT Study Conductor, Congregation Secretary, Book Study Conductor, and occasional Pioneer. Never "irregular" or "inactive" as the labels go. I have not been reproved or disfellowshipped. I no longer attend meetings or practice the religion. I have not started smoking, drinking, gambling, using drugs, or had any sort of emotional breakdown. How silly.

I am not a servant of the "Faithful and Discreet Slave", the WTBTS, or any other man-made organization. I hope to explain, not defend, the beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses. I believe in universal truths such as kindness, humility, charity, and love. I do not believe that God selected a special group, the Jews or CT Russell followers for example, to receive a special message or blessing. I do not believe that one religion has it all right and therfore other religions are wrong. I believe it is a delusion for one group of humans to claim that "God chose us and therefore God did not choose you." I consider spirituality to be a personal endeavor that each person must discover for themselves.

Carlita,  It is good to hear from you. So true what you said that JWs are confused and lost. I was the same for 32 years. I have never been so happy as when I left the cult for good. Do you go to any meetings?

All good questions Christophe. Are you a practicing JW?    I suppose that if Jesus came in our time and wore today's clothes style that future generations would wonder why he didn't wait to come in their

Some JWs are more open and liberal than others. So it depends on the family. If the dad happens to be hard core he would make his daughter give you something else to wear. If he is open minded and liberal

2016-10-13 Questions on spanking:

From the platform, JW men are known to often say "spare the rod and spoil the child." So parents....what does Jehovah expect from you in this regard? Well..Jehovah agrees with a spanking,to bring the rod

2015-05-06 seeing the sad side of the JW's:

Hi David,    No, I don't keep up with what is going on any more. It has been so long that I have been out.     Everything you say is true. It is true that the WT Society uses assemblies, assembly halls
