Lurkers Beware!

It has been a few weeks since my post, “Free At Last.” As far as I know, there has been no announcement–which is rather anti-climactic in my opinion. Somebody told me they only disfellowship someone they view as a danger to the congregation. Am I a danger? I sure as hell hope so!

Different ones from that religion may claim I am being disloyal; biting the hand that fed me; beating my fellow slave; even turning my back on the loving arrangement of Jehovah’s deluded sheep. I would ask them what that religion did for me that compensates for what I gave it. Thirty eight years of faithful service; thousands of hours in door-to-door humiliation; thousands of dollars in donations, vehicle upkeep, and gas; the best years of my life; a career; an education; my mental health—who puts a price on that? So who owes whom?

I remember in the Bible book of Exodus, when the Israelites were leaving Egyptian bondage they looted the Egyptians and took away a great deal of gold and jewelry. Was that stealing? No, the Egyptians had no right to enslave them so they owed the Israelites back pay. Well, the Watchtower Society owes me back pay and should be forced to pay for my psychological counseling in freeing myself from their mind-control. I want my youth back so I can make different decisions. I entered into a contract with the JW’s when I was 15. Such a contract is not binding. The steps I take now are in direct response to their continued need to try to control my life and thinking.

This blog was recently discovered by an old JW-friend. I hope he has enjoyed what he has read. One thing I find interesting is that the greatest sin he focused on was my celebrating of Christmas. I’m a practicing witch, and an apostate (by his reckoning) yet it was far worse that I would erect a Christmas tree in my house and exchange presents with my loved ones for the first time in my life. Does that sound like twisted reasoning? Does that sound like the Pharisaical tendency to ‘strain out the gnat and gulp down the camel’? (Matthew 23:24)But then, they are all Pharisees aren’t they? That is the whole idea of this blog:

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you resemble white-washed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness. In that way you also, outwardly indeed, appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” (Matthew 23:27,28)

Be careful who you judge. Make sure they don’t know too much about you and your penchant for apostate websites and pornography. And as to what my husband may or may not be ‘allowing to transpire in his home’—why don’t you join the 21st century. Women even have the right to vote now.

  1. they get upset about christmas because they know there is no reason to not celebrate it .. it breaks no law in the bible .. it’s just something they came up with to control the masses .. go ahead have someone PROVE using just the bible that it’s wrong .. or any birthday celebration .. it cant be done .. they are full of shit and they know it

  2. Very much like the Pharisees they love to condemn, they “are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.”

  3. yes lawd. such a fantastic argument.

  4. Anger is a stage of the process. It’s natural. Having said that, though, I hope you pass through it quickly. The later stuff is much better.

    When I see this stuff now, I just have a sort of bemused detachment. “Ah, are you trying to make me feel guilty? That’s so cute.”

    But that use of sexual roles to force compliance, the whole “what he’s allowing in his house thing,” that isn’t just for the wimmins. At least one person intimated to my wife that she should withhold sex from me until I got with the JW program. This person apparently did that to thei9r husband when he questioned the ‘truth’, and felt it was a good strategy for shutting down doubts.

    Sadly, within their dysfunctional worldview, this all makes sense.

  5. I think you will understand my anger if you read part of what he emailed us: “The sad part is, you are not content where you are. You are moving, going backwards, like a dog returning to his vomit. You state that since you don’t believe in the teachings of the Watchtower, what difference does it make whether or not you celebrate the holdiays? The difference is that it is not merely a teaching of the Watchtower. It comes from God’s word, the Bible. You know where those things originated. You bear the responsibility of being connected with them, of conciously turning yourself over to world, which is lying in the power of the wicked one. Not that it matters. Charis has allied herself with Satan. A brother who was once at a very top tier of the Wiccan arrangement was able to study and come into the Truth. And he spoke about Satan, how he is well known. He is very powerful, and yet he is referred to as the Great User, or something of that sort. Because even among devil worshipers and Satanists, it has become clear that he only wants to use people for his own personal gain.

    So this is what you can expect– Charis will do strange things. She may even become powerful in certain things. But all of that will come at a price. And in the end it will be more than you can bear. Soon a demon, or more than one will contact her, will start communicating with her, if it hasn’t already. By that time, she will be so deeply involved, it will be difficult to extract her from their clutches. And that is, if she even wants to. I don’t envy you the danger and the frightening times ahead for you and your family.

    You are allowing that to exist in your household. You are condoning that. It’s one thing to leave Jehovah’s organization. It’s another thing to throw youself with no restraint into the most revolting, shocking, and disgusting thing in the universe. You hurt Jehovah. The one who cared for you. The one who gave you strength when you could not move past your own low self esteem. The one who saw good things in you. The one who was going to allow you to care for his people. You spit in his face. You have treated him the way your mother has always treated you. The truly sad thing is that Jehovah could still forgive you, could still put all of this as far off as the sunset is from the sunrise. But you have found it easier to justify your course by allowing yourself to feel he has abandoned us and perhaps does not even exist. There is no Jehovah has shouted the fool. You continue to spit in his face. You have bitten the hand that fed you for so many years.

    I told you the other day that I would always love the both of you. But what I love is a memory. The friends I once knew would never have given way to the darkness. Lou Tippets may have questioned his faith as he lay on his death bed. But he would have been so completely ashamed of his daughter and what she is doing if he was still alive. Charis has looked up to him for so many years. And yet she so dishonors his memory. You have turned loose all the memories between you and those around you. You have set fire to them. There is nothing left but the ashes.

    It is only a matter of time now before you are handed over to the demons. I cannot walk that path with you. I will not walk it. I have dedicated my life to Jehovah. I have dedicated my life to caring for my people. I am a hiding place during the wind, a shelter from the storm. They need me, and I will not abandon them. I will not abandon Jehovah. I will continue to defend him to the death, I will continue to fight the fine fight. I will not simply role over and die. I stand for something, and I believe . . . I have faith.”

  6. We got a few of those, too.

    Pretty obnoxious.

  7. You hit the nail on the head: Their actions are exactly like the Pharisees of the Bible. None of that elder’s message to you had any offering of love or guidance, as was the only message that Jesus spread. He was so consumed with “puffing himself up with pride” about him and his godly standing that he didn’t care at all about the “one lost sheep” which Jesus would have forsaken all others to retrieve. Not that you are a lost sheep in their sense anymore, of course. You deserve people in your life who will love you and support you and have your best interests at heart. Not the ones who will abandon you and condemn you and judge you. Basically this most-holy Jehovah’s Witness elder has now given you a death sentence, which no man is able to judge, and he has placed himself in the seat of his God instead. For that, he faces a much worse fate. I’m sorry you had to bear the brunt of his totally fear-based attack, but I know you will continue to grow and carry on in love.

  8. WOW!! You are one very smart woman. You have explained that very well.

    “Different ones from that religion may claim I am being disloyal; biting the hand that fed me; beating my fellow slave; even turning my back on the loving arrangement of Jehovah’s deluded sheep. I would ask them what that religion did for me that compensates for what I gave it. Thirty eight years of faithful service; thousands of hours in door-to-door humiliation; thousands of dollars in donations, vehicle upkeep, and gas; the best years of my life; a career; an education; my mental health—who puts a price on that? So who owes whom”

    Sooooooo many hours in door-to-door humiliation,, I went to a door once and the older lady screamed at me and said, get out now while you can!!!! they told me she meant her house and property, ha! Crazy old lady wasnt so crazy!

    So much humiliation, you know how many fights I got into in school because of this shit!?!?!? Kids would point and laugh at me, calling me names, but if I defened myself, I would have been in the back room faster than the Princable could have grabed me! Need I say more?

    Very nice!
