Answer
Hi. I am happy to answer your questions. I will be direct and not meander off topic. But please feel free to ask anything else that you wish.

Did you do Door to Door proclaiming the kingdom as an active Jw from your church?
Yes. I went door to door every month without fail from October 1968 to October 1999.

Did you take or invite people to the KH or other meetings?
Yes. I invited "back calls", later called "return visits" to the meetings. I took Bible students and interested people to the meetings and assemblies in my car. I aided 4 people to become baptized Witnesses.

Did you use the KH material or study books in your ministry when you when Door2Door?
Yes. I always followed the Kingdom Ministry guidelines/suggestions for door to door presentations and I used and offered the current Watchtower Society publications to the public.

That's the way it was.

Expertise

1. How the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses is stuctured, how it operates, and how it exercises control over its members. 2. What Jehovah's Witnesses believe, why, and who determines doctrine.

It is a waste of time to argue with Jehovah's Witnesses or to present lists of scriptural proofs to show where they are in error. Jehovah's Witnesses listen only the "Faithful and Discreet Slave" and immediately accept changes that come through the pages of The Watchtower magazine.

Experience

I survived 1975. For 32 years, from 1968 to 2000, I embraced and promoted everything coming through Jehovah's sole channel of communication, the "Faithful and Discreet Slave." I accepted doctrinal changes as "new light", meat in due season, from the Slave Class.

Was an elder the last 13 years, WT Study Conductor, Congregation Secretary, Book Study Conductor, and occasional Pioneer. Never "irregular" or "inactive" as the labels go. I have not been reproved or disfellowshipped. I no longer attend meetings or practice the religion. I have not started smoking, drinking, gambling, using drugs, or had any sort of emotional breakdown. How silly.

I am not a servant of the "Faithful and Discreet Slave", the WTBTS, or any other man-made organization. I hope to explain, not defend, the beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses. I believe in universal truths such as kindness, humility, charity, and love. I do not believe that God selected a special group, the Jews or CT Russell followers for example, to receive a special message or blessing. I do not believe that one religion has it all right and therfore other religions are wrong. I believe it is a delusion for one group of humans to claim that "God chose us and therefore God did not choose you." I consider spirituality to be a personal endeavor that each person must discover for themselves.
