An Eye Opening Disassociation Letter

I read the following letter and immediately remembered how imposing and judgemental the Watchtower Society and those who follow their teachings really are. It is really amazing to me how the Bible instructs us to approach our brothers in the spirit of love and concern first to try to first ascertain if they are making a mis-step and then if they are to help them to correct their step before contacting another brother or finally the elders with a problem and the people who worship the Watchtower Society go running like paranoid fools to report any hint of an idea of perceived wrongdoing to the body of elders. Below is a letter of disassociation that resulted from such wrong-minded behavior.

To the Body of Elders of the M******l W***s congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses,

I wish to state, first of all, that I take no pleasure in writing you this letter. The difficulty I find in stating that which I have felt for many years, is enormous. The only satisfaction I do intend to gain, however, from this episode of my life, is the fact that this deplorable chapter is rapidly coming to an end, and I will finally have peace knowing that I have done the right thing.


In October of this year, while at my place of work, an employee of mine, M*** B****, overheard an inadvertent comment by my director stating that I had “Passed out while giving blood”. This comment did not state the particulars of this supposed giving of blood. It did not differentiate whether or not this was simply an incident of having my blood drawn for testing, or an actual donation of whole blood. Nonetheless, this statement was overheard on a Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:20pm, and had generated a response from your Body by 8:30am of the next morning. This response manifested itself in the form of W***** D**** and H***** M****** waking my wife from a sound sleep, and grilling her for half an hour on my habits. My wife was asked in an accusatory manner whether or not she knew about my donating of blood, and whether or not she was aware that I was intending to give my blood directly to her during an upcoming transplant surgery that she was to undergo. This last question is ludicrous in light of the fact that I had never even allowed this thought to cross my mind due to the fact that our blood types are completely incompatible. I personally, was never approached, either in person or by telephone, and asked about any of these things. Apparently, these things can only be asked of a sick 5’4” housewife, and not her large somewhat ill-tempered husband. The absurd way this situation was handled substantiates my belief that this Body of Elders is more interested in finding fault with me than with helping me.
This incident is the catalyst that has convinced me that I need to make my feelings known once and for all.

(A) The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, through its’ Governing Body, has repeatedly made predictions that have time and again proved to be untrue, while berating Rank and File Jehovah’s Witnesses who have been disappointed when these predictions failed to happen.

(B) This same group has displayed a startling amount of duplicity in it’s dealings with its’ so-called brothers, as displayed in its’ handling of the case of the Mexican military cartilla as opposed to the Malawian political card.

(C) This group forbids the medical use of whole blood while allowing the use of a majority of blood fractions.

(D) This group states that the only good and true hearted people on earth are Jehovah’s Witnesses or those who are about to become Jehovah’s Witnesses.

My feelings towards (A) and (B) are this. A religious group that purports to be the soul channel to God should be fair in its’ dealing. It should readily admit its’ mistakes and beg forgiveness of the people that it is supposed to serve.

As far as (C) is concerned, we have a term for this where I come from…Douchebaggery.

I struggle to find anything that can properly convey my utter disdain for the idiocy that is (D).

And so, I’m left with this. I do not, nor will I ever believe that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society or any of its’ subsidiary components is the sole channel to any divine being. I do not believe that the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses is a safe one. On the contrary, I believe it to be extremely dangerous. I believe that the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses is a high control cult that damage its’ members severely.
Because of these reasons I wish to no longer be known as a Jehovah’s Witness. I tell you this now, I will worship God, but I refuse to worship an organization.

M*** S******

Incredible experience which shows the suspicion in the Organization.

There's something almost sinister in the increasing control they exert over members.

Of course, these actions are typical of cultic groups. They'll either become even more controlling or will mainstream in an attmept to hang onto waning membership.

It Doesn't take 20 years to find out about them. I when to my mom's place in the year 2000. It toke me 1 month to find out about them, becouse they were in the same religion as you. In 1975 the said it would be the end of the world, in 1995, the same thing, and so on. What a mess, making beleve to the people. None since.
