Russell and Rutherford Disagreed on the Pyramid Teaching — 8 Comments

  1. Speaking of pyramids…when I first came into “The Truth” I was sold a pyramid travel scheme called “Sunset Vacations.” I was told by the elder and his devoted wife that they would gladly take me on vacation with them since they wanted me to “leave all my blood relatives and friends that the congregation was my family.” Well, that was a HUGE lie. It turned out they went to Hawaii, Switzerland, and Italy without me but invited young adults whose parents were long time witnesses. Not some loner like myself who they were suspicious of. However, they did want my money! I did get invited over to watch their slide shows of their travels. Little did they know at 18, I went in the bathroom and cried. I was so miserable without my family and REAL friends. Five years of that kind of psychological abuse by Jehovah’s Witnesses shoved me away.

  2. and they call themselves Christian I was ua single parent I had moved up to the north of Scotland the congregation were so cold I felt so lonely it was all the elders family’s that were just about worshiped and who were invited every were like your self I cried out of pure loneliness

    • Big hug to you. I am so sorry you were treated like dirt too. It truly is a men’s club that only allows a select few into the inner circle.

  3. make a comment of your own experience at the watchtower study and see the reaction. Hah1 It took me a while to see they only wanted comments along the ‘party-line’. A few years later the wt changed (!) and asked for personal experiences. In recent times that’s dropped as the wts becomes ever more defensive and its back to quote the party line once more.

  4. Barbara, thanks for history info. Sadly that “active” JW members will not see this and also will not be in situation to be aware of many historical facts like this one.
    greetings 🙂

  5. Friendly suggestion
    : one of the subjects never came public is the descrimination jehovah witnesses they had towards blacks people the earlier nineteen hundreds 1900. I don’t have the publications or the English writing skills to write a article. I believe the black jehovah witnesses is good to know how the watchtower treat them that time.
    Thank you.
