Witness for Jehovah
Many leave because, through their private Biblical research, they have discovered that many things the JWs teach are not true.
Others leave because the religion no longer fulfills their spiritual needs.
Where else do they go?
Others, like myself, leave because they can no longer stomach the hypocrisy, backbiting, lack of love, lies and general nastiness inherent in the group.
Wow! You’d have had a hard time living in ancient Israel, during those times when just about the entire nation had left Jehovah!
But guess what? They were still Jehovah’s people. No other group was!
Yeah, Jehovah’s organization is filled with imperfect people. And we all go through tests, the Devil makes sure of that....some keep loyal to Jehovah and endure, and some don’t.
But the majority who leave, are disfellowshipped for practicing, ie., unrepentant, sexual immorality.
Few ever admit it.
