Well there we have it... First off, each and everyone one of us here have had to deal with the mistakes of the WTS, no one here has a copy-write on hardships or discoveries of errors within the Society. We have all had family within the congregations going in and out for many reasons, some being by choice, others without. Many of us have been before tribunals, boards, about our understandings and questions about teachings with the WTS. No one here has first dibs on hardships, on experiences within the congregations, we have all experienced it. I'm not going to bash you for the decisions you have made, it's not my place, nor is it yours to encourage anyone to stay or leave the congregations as well. We have had this discussion on this forum over and over. We have opinions here, not rights of actions. It is my opinion what you are doing is drawing out people away from God's people, and in a very big danger of stumbling someone. Again, whether you stay or go is your choice, just as it is everyone else's. All of prophecy shows that Jehovah will act and that will scatter the flock. It is many of our beliefs that it will be Jehovah's time table that will strike his "courtyard"/"Constant Feature" and bring down the WTS, nothing we say or do will change that fact, and it is many or our opinions that trying to liquidate b/s from the congregations will do nothing be cause them to be stumbled. We here wait for Jehovah's actions upon his house, just as prophecy guides us. Read this letter from a close brother to many of us here, it's reasoning should be deeply contemplated on; "Yes, there will always be those who go out from us who were never OF us to begin with anyhow (1 John 2:19). As is common to human nature, we tend to argue that others are guilty of something that, in reality, we ourselves are (1 John 3:12). In the case of the anti-JW movement, they're convinced somehow that those who remain behind are "followers of men" while being blind to the part where they want people to leave and to follow them. In most likelihood, the extent of their anti-JWness is directly correlated to how much of a follower of men they themselves were while in the organization. It's like those bitter divorces, where one or both spouses now despise each other, whether the family is harmed in the process or not. The apostle Paul struggled with seeing this going on, and at one point he wrote that he wished it were not so, but that he understood why it was allowed to happen-- that we should all manifest what's in our heart (1 Corinthians 11:19). Those of us aware of it have an obligation to look out for others, of course, for as long as we can (Acts 20:29). Stand firm, stay true, keep the faith! Your brother"
