A is for Armageddon
In which we though we’d die
If we didn’t believe in
The Jehovah’s Witness lie

B is for the Boasting
On every convention stage,
By people who in preaching work
Did constantly engage

C is for Christianity
Of which we did profess
But thought all the other churches
Were filled with evilness

D is for Disfellowship
A price you soon would pay
If you were not perfect in
The Jehovah’s Witness way

E is for the Elders
Men you must respect
Even if they didn’t possess
A normal intellect

F is for the Friendship
At the Kingdom Hall
Until you made a small mistake
And by gossip you did fall.

G is for the Guilt
That was heaped upon your head
For “can’t you do a little more?”
- At least until you’re dead.

H is for the History
Of never which was said
Of “miracle wheat” and houses built
For people that were dead

I is for the Internet
Where never you must go
For then you’ll learn about the things
You weren’t supposed to know

J is for Jerusalem
And the date they lied to say
Would mean the end times and the generation
That would never pass away

K is for the Kingdom Hall
In which hours you did spend
Although is was very boring
From beginning to the end

L is for Loving fellowship
With which they sucked you in
Until the day you were baptized
And then it all did end

M is for the Ministry
Of which you did partake,
Even though you hated it
Until the donut break

N is for the Neighbors
To whom you seemed quite strange,
For even little Christmas cards
You never did exchange.

O is for the Overseer who
Came from time to time
To tell you how bad you were
And beg you for a dime

P is for the Prayer
Which you though would fix all ill
Until it really didn’t
Then you had to pray more still

Q is for the Questions
Of which you could not say
For then you’d be “apostate”
And made to go away

R is for the Relatives
Who you never more do see,
For it wouldn’t do at all
To know you went happily

S is for the Slave
So faithful and discrete
Who gave you the spiritual food
That changed with every week

T is for the Tribulation
For which we lived in fear,
For it’s so close we really knew
It had to be next year.

U is for the underline
We did in every ‘tower,
To make sure we never said
A thought that might be ours

V is for the victims
Of pedophiles and snakes,
Whose evil acts were covered up
Within the elder ranks

W is for the Watchtower
That did corrupt our minds
For if we’d kept on reading it
The truth we’d never find

X is for anXiety
That we used to feel
From trying to live a life
That never was for real

Y is for the Young ones,
Who’s innocence we took
By making them scared and fearful
From the bible stories book

Z is for the zero good
We got from all the hours
Of trying to sell the useless
Awakes and Watchtowers

L..is for LOVE..that will forgive

For in forgiving you will be forgiven.. for having believrd a lie in the first place

People have to question themselves as to why they are so easily fooled...

No use blaming the person who himself was misled

Somewhere down the line..a person didn't check like they were told to..Or they didn't want to rock a boat because of fear of man

Nope nobody can blame any body else for their believing of a lie...

Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Indeed, who is the man that will harm you if you become zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are happy. However, the object of their fear so not you fear, neither become agitated. But sanctify the Christ as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense before everyone that demands of you a reason for the hope in you, but doing so together with a mild temper and deep respect.

Trembling at men is what lays a snare, but he that is trusting in Jehovah will be protected.

You weren't raised from childhood in the Jehovah's Witness cult were you?

Most of us were raised in one religion or other..that told us they were the only true religion..most of us believed it until Christ came into our lives..

We have to forgive men and realize its the system thats in error...and we have to enter into union with Christ to set the captive free..and that comes from preaching the WORD.

I am very happy in my life right now, couldn't be much better.

This was something I wrote a few years ago. It was kind of therapy for me I guess. What struck me as I wrote it was that I had moved on, this is all behind me, just some thoughts about my former life.

Good try though.:)

Well I must admit that it is pretty obvious that you have moved on. I mean I think that every time you post here trying to "get back" at Jehovah's Witnesses in some cathartic tirade. Definitely the actions of someone who has "moved on".

He's trying to rack up brownie points so God will not have to kill him during armageddon because he never dipped his big toe in the portable swimming pool on Saturday during the District Convention.

ever notice how little lamb plays both sides of the fence?
...... out of one side of her mouth she is claiming the jw leadership is wrong, and out the other side she agrees with them, and claims they alone are "god's people", and out the other side she always finds something to disagree with about former members.

poor thing...... according to her, she has never been fooled........she thinks she is a spiritual virgin of the 144,000 according to the definition put forth by the wicked jw gov body.

i guess thats why the jw gov body also never admit they were wrong..... instead they just lie their way out of everything they ever said.

I think it is obvious that although LL has annointed himself expert on growing up in the Jehovah's Witness cult, he himself was not subjected to the abuses of growing up JW.
Making all of his points on the subject null and void.

She fights tooth and nail for the Watchtower Society's false doctrines all the while claiming its leaders are wrong.

The poor thing is so confused and doesn't realise it.

You Watchtower people will never believe it, but I have a great life. I have a small business that I find creatively fulfilling. I am happily married to the love of my life. We live within our means and look forward to a comfortable retirement. I live in a great house, in a great town. I do volunteer work. We travel, go out to nice dinners and have fun. Life is good!

I come here only to counter the lies of people who defend the Watchtower but have no actual experience. I was a dub for 34 years. The things they spout for public consumption is not what actually happens in the congregations. I can only state my experiences and my opinions. I do not post in rage, say vile and vulgar thing, make up silly stories, or wildly conjecture about people I do not know.

I have healed and forgiven myself for blindly following a cult. I have peace in my heart. I only wish for others that they open their eyes to the real truth about "the truth". Most of you will not believe me, because to do so would counter the Watchtower's lie that all that leave are unhappy, miserable sinners. You can call me names, say ugly things, whatever. It doesn't matter to me in the least. I know what I know.

Peace and love to all.
