Re: How do we expose the delusion? (reply)
For me, it started with some really good questions, that ironically, one of my parent's "Bible Studys" asked. He and his wife were coming out of Mormonism, they both doubted the Joseph Smith story, and they really doubted the guy ever...

Re: Elder Has Asked Me To Give Reasons Why I Doubt The Bible (reply)
I seriously doubt there's anything you or anyone could think of to say that would open this elder's eyes to the truth.Yeah, I gotta agree Mel. About a year ago, my cousin, whom I had grown up with, started e-mailing me wanting to know...

Re: Over it (reply)
I think (harmless) religions are primarily about fellowship and basking in the energy that results from the meeting of like-minded people. If someone desires and is able to have that without their lives being completely controlled...

Re: Need some help understanding (reply)
I think they have been less strict about it in the last several years. When I was growing up (50+ years ago) I remember that it was considered a form of murder. In the last couple of decades, the JW's have realized there really is such a...

Cangie... un-pharcking-believable! Where the HELL do they find these assholes? I don't know if you've seen the video of the GB member talking about women, but they're views are not far from the Taliban. This guy goes on and on about the...

Re: Elder Has Asked Me To Give Reasons Why I Doubt The Bible (reply)
Punky and Dave, thank you so much for your comments. Peanut, if you would like, you have my permission to quote the following to the Elder:No, I am not disfellowshipped. I have never been "reproved" publicly or privately. So no one needs...

Re: Elder Has Asked Me To Give Reasons Why I Doubt The Bible (reply)
The person who is telling you things about "apostate hearings" is not telling you the truth !And how does he know that? Let him read "Crisis of Conscience" and then let him deny "apostate hearings." Someone told the elders that they...

Re: JWs trolling bereaved families (reply)
I did this one time, 45 years ago. It was my first day of being a regular pioneer. I approached one person, offered the magazines along with some lame tie-in to the resurrection and I NEVER did it again. I knew it was wrong, badgering...

Re: Elder Has Asked Me To Give Reasons Why I Doubt The Bible (reply)
Well obviously the things that come to my mind are such as it contradicts itself, the world wide flood never happened, there is no proof that the bible has not changed over time as we don't have the original copy's ect, the Old...

Re: The cost of shunning, ostracism, and rejection... (reply)
Nice find Auth! I have never seen that one before. Yes, it seems they have imitated the Roman Catholic Church in many ways. *cough-pedophilia-cough*If memory serves me, it seems it was around 1947 when they started the disfellowshipping...

Re: What is happening to the Borg and where is it going? (reply)
I think it's because the publishing business is in such decline. Look what's happening to newspapers and other "rags" --- they are all going to on-line formats. Ever since Guttenberg printed the Bible in the 1400's, printing and...

I found a great article on the subject in the American Psychological Association journal (link at the bottom of this post). A few snippets:As researchers have dug deeper into the roots of rejection, they’ve found surprising evidence...

Hahaha Dave! I'm right here. Ah yes, that 96 page piece of bull-shit Harry Peloyan conjured up with all the dishonesty he could muster. Prick. I guess I shouldn't call him a prick now that he's dead... I guess.I would enjoy an actual...

Re: Brother elders back at it  (reply)
THEY are isolating themselves from humanity for the main goal of gaining 'everlasting life' for THEMSELVES at the cost of billions of lives.Exactly. And they would have you join them in their isolation, and if you don't, their plan is...

Re: Movie Noah was ... different (reply)
I saw it about a month or so ago... I agree with you Mel... not at ALL like the version in the bibble. But the movie is equally believable as the story in Genesis... the movie is only slightly further out. And all the animals went into...

Re: My new student is JW (reply)
I think the advice has been good... but I can also understand your apprehension. On the one hand, you go on teaching her, and she will see what a loving, caring person you are, then whammo-bammo, her parents find out you're exJW. Now you...

Re: Something the creation book missed out... (reply)
