  1. Another good review Mike.

    And also thanks for responding to my previous comment about going to Kingdom Halls. Your genuinely humble way you handled the situation says a lot of good things about you.😀

    I think that you are doing an excellent service for others by your reviews. If I can help you in any way going forward, don’t hesitate to ask. I have been a JW for about 40 years, almost 30 of those serving as an Elder and having a “prominent” role in the Organization. I am now in the awakening process.

    Look forward to hearing from you, your friend,


    1. Why thank you Elmer! Due to your experience as a JW, I would very much value your insights on things as I admittedly don’t have that advantage of being an ex-JW. There’s only so much I can know about the JW culture and mentality short of having been a JW at any point. I’m honored that you’ve chosen to listen to my material during your awakening process. If there’s anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

  2. Hi Rotherham ,

    I see very clearly from your previous posts that you are a JW apologist. If you really are a “faithful” Witness, you should not be here. That having been said, how in the world can you defend the Org for it’s bizarre behavior? Correct me if I’m wrong, but you are probably counting the time you spend on these sites as field service.

    If you have’nt caught on to the GB’s antics by now, there’s a good chance you probably won’t…..

    1. Elmer, I have hopes that even the most staunch JW apologist can see the light. Look at David Barron as a great example, though admittedly he wasn’t as devoted to the GB as Rotherham seems to be. So there is that 🙂

  3. Hi Mike,

    You make a good point. And to Rotherham- sorry to be snarky.
    I’m drawing a blank on who David Barron is….

  4. Hi Rotherham,

    Let’s hit reset. You asked what the “basic” problem was with JW’s. I don’t really have a problem with JW’s per se. It is the completely un-Christian and inept leadership I am referring to.

    Just watch the December Broadcast and get back to me…..

  5. Let m try that again. I am afraid you’ll have ro be a little more specific, please.
