Sounds like you've been through a lot too. It's just terrible that you're being shunned over the vaccine. Maybe one day your daughter will come to her senses. Hang in there. I'm glad Watchman has this discussion forum for us all to associate on.

I also have an aunt and cousins who are witnesses who no longer have anything to do with me. Yes, I definitely plan to hang on in there. We all need to not only prove the devil a liar but prove our love for Jehovah and our faith in him.
We can all be a strengthening aid to one another.

Hello brothers and sisters, I'm new here. Short history: been a JW for 43yrs now, but inactive for 10 plus years, last meeting was in 2013. Policies in dealing with CSA sicken me, UN/NGO affair disgusting, KH sales, organizational idolatry, the list goes on and on of what disturbs me. I can't bring myself to attend meetings as much as I miss them due to the sins of the WT. So I just faded away. Glad to be hear. Really appreciate Watchmans articles and videos over the years, they really helped me to put things in perspective and understand it is the true religion, it's just gone apostate. I post from my phone so I'm trying to keep it short. Enjoy reading all your comments.
Hi and welcome. All the things you mention are incredibly frustrating to be sure. What makes it easier for me is to know that Jehovah is aware of everything down to the smallest wrong committed, and will perfectly judge accordingly. I feel that so many let those frustrations eat them up inside and lose sight of all the good that was accomplished by the WT when we consider the witness given to most of the world regarding Gods name, and the basic foundational teachings of the bible(no hell, no trinity, no rapture, etc...etc). Not to mention they have produced and spread the bible in more places and languages than anybody else in the world. Just as Ms ladyblue says we can all be a strengthening aid to one another, especially for those who have family within the WT still and are being shunned for seeing the hypocrisy and lies for what they are. To me that is the hardest part, not seeing all the friends I had for so many years. Anyways welcome...

I totally agree with your post...especially true about all the good that's been accomplished by the preaching and teaching work of Jehovah's Witnesses. It was clearly evident to me that holy spirit was directing me to the JWs back in the 80s. Boy, oh boy, how the organization has changed since then. I do wonder how much longer Jehovah will tolerate the idolatry of the organization. It's appalling. It's wonderful being able to discuss these things with JWs here, for years I've been isolated that way. I've learned so much more scripturally speaking outside the org (especially on prophecy) than inside. I now see how this apostasy was foretold to occur in the true Christian congregation in the end time's and it is faith strengthening (2Thess.2, + Dan.11:31-35, 41, 44,45.) I miss all the friends too. When I do come across them in my travels it's hard not to tell them everything I've learned, but that opportunity hasn't happened much anyway.
