Hi there, I used to be a JW and let me tell you that it really isn't a community feeling once your in. You see, the goal of a Jehovah's Witness is to
get more and more people into their organization to be "saved". But once your in your just another person. My family thought it was great how we felt
like we belonged with them, like they wanted us there; but that changed within a couple of years.
At first we were invited to pot-lucks, drop in hockey in the winter and soccer in the summer. But you know what? When we went there, they didnt even
include the kids! When one of the Elders were asked about this his reply was simple..."We don't include the kids". I was shocked. It felt as if they
were pushing the very people in the organization out and trying to get others in.
Now I'm not saying to run, as you need to experience for yourself. They claim to be the one true religion for all, especially if your a family....but
it's not like that at all, at least it wasn't at the kingdom hall I went to.
I also have an Aunt who is a Jehovah's Witness, in fact she is the one that got my family and I involved. Can you guess what happened once I decided
to leave the religion? That's right, she hasnt talked to me since...It's been about 8 years now.
