Hi

So I am vary confused with who is actually a JW on here. Therefore please could you all answer this question?

Are you a JW?

Please simply answer with:

"Yes" - if you are
"No" - if you are not
"Ex" - if you were once a JW but no longer are
"Study" - if you are currently studying the Bible with JWs

I am not interested in why you are/are not a JW. I am not intersted in your views or any immature bickering between each other (of which both JWs and non-JWs here are terribly and shamefully guilty of).I am just interested in who is/isn't a JW so I can get it staright in my mind.

Thank you.:)

For most on here they are either ex or like myself bible studies.
I could see how people can be manipulated by the weekly indoctrination.
and end up working against their own interests. I rejected it half way through.but when i did I started looking on the internet and was amazed at the am mount of anti JW stuff out there.
I put more faith in all the stories and hardship people have suffered at the hands of the JW.
Than the propaganda, the WT tell people Of course they are going to say its the Greatest thing out, they are selling it to you.
The readers digest used to send me letters telling me I had won a million $$$. I am still awaiting the check.
People lie What's new. Some people repeat the lie told to them and it becomes a rumour. and gets embellished along the way.
The JW becomes embellished with New Light, Someone must make this stuff up.
Its the people brought up in this religion I feel sorry for because they had no choice!

I am an Ex Witness,was pretty much born into it,when I was three my mom started studying and within a few years our whole family was alienated on both my moms and dads side, and I was tot to judge them as part of Satan's system, although one side was Christian hardworking down to earth good people. The other side was pretty much about academia and basically non religious, which of course they were judged the most harshly, even though they were all humanitarians,and have contributed much to society through law, politics & teaching.
I left as a teen, and due to my parents frowning on education I became a construction worker. But at 19 I came back with a vengeance and tried to do everything the watchtower way looking for a relationship with my Creator for over a decade, although there were some good times, I was unsure of my salvation and no matter how hard I stay busy with so-called theocratic activities, I never felt the love joy and peace promised me by the watchtower, by means of God's Spirit.
I left again in my thirties, I had been brainwashed to believe that there was either the watchtower or everything evil, but God has definitely reached out to me and now I am a spirit be gotten born again Son of God and a brother of Christ Jesus,I am a disciple of God's only begotten Son,Jesus Christ of Nazereth.I have the token of eternal life and I know that I am God's child and it is my mission in life to let everyone know that, especially jahovaswitness! It does not make me any better than anyone else, but lays a responsibility upon me to follow the law that has been written on my heart and the leading of my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus to not sin against my fellow man or myself, all to the glory of God the Father, our Father John chapter 1 verses 12 and 13
YaHWeH is my Father and despite the watchtowers lies our brother and exemplar Christ Jesus is inviting all to become his spirit begotten children! Romans chapter 8
We all will answer to Christ Jesus for how we treated and helped our fellow man from a material, physical, emotional and spiritual way. we will also be judged on how we judged our fellow man! I experienced the watchtower, & I have been in several congregations throughout the country, as a very judgemental megalomaniac organization that is constantly propagating itself and demonising the world.
I pray that our heavenly high priest open your eyes to the true father, and God of the universe!

Even though you did not want the background, I cannot simply say I am an ex johova witness without a testimony. I took the religion very seriously and refuse to live as a hypocrite! I worked it to the best of my ability and it got me nowhere with my relationship towards God. I pray that you let no man Rob you have the greatest gift in the universe, the adoption as a child of God and the privilege of being a brother of Christ, confident in your salvation , in the redemptive power of his blood, life and word and in the power of God's Holy Spirit! Dont let the super fine apostles of Brooklyn rob it from you! 2nd Corinthians chapter 13

I am an ex JW.

But what you need to understand is that as a JW, they are not suppose to be here on this site. Read the following...

The following are words from your GB aka F&DS in the new brochure "Who Are Doing Jehovah's Will?" , page 28.

Some Internet sites have been set up by opposer's to spread false
information about our organization. Their intent is to draw people away from serving Jehovah.
We should avoid those sites.
-Psalm1:1; 26:4; Romans 16:17.

And in the August 15, 2012 page 13 paragraph 11 (Carry on as Kingdom Citizens), Watchtower it warns about the internet dangers as well saying that you should stay away from social sites because we are bad association, and we know that bad association spoils useful habits don't we? ;)
Here in paragraph twelve it says what they think will happen to you who disobey their warnings...

Those who ignore warnings issued
by the faithful slave inevitably cause
harm to themselves and to their loved
ones. Some have become addicted to
viewing pornography or have committed
immorality and then deluded themselves
into thinking that Jehovah cannot
see what they are doing. How foolish
to believe that we can hide our conduct
from Jehovah!

One of those who admits to being a JW is this person and as you see in her post, she even admits JWs are told to stay away from sites like this..

The prior posts are just prove why JW's are told to stay away from these sites. The half-lies, the slanted viewpoints. I believe that if Karen was a baptized Witness as she said she was, she's no different than many others who just didn't get what they should have when they were so-called Witnesses, I believe she never really knew what the Bible teaches, and now cries that Jesus is her Savior, and all those ear-tickling things without merit and without "substance."
This is not an approved JW site, it is TOPIX. If you are not sure about being here, ask the person who studies with you. There are DFed, DAed, and Apostates here.

no, never was, never will be

The only thing I believe in that the WTS ever wrote was the title of a book, I think: Make Sure of All Things.
