A true Life Jehovahs Witness Story The full article is here : Jehovahs Witness Beliefs

The following 2 years of college and the witnesses laid down many patterns which i have seen repeated continuously across forums and other members’ stories. It’s normal for kids to rebel – it is a natural process of testing their boundaries and becoming adults. In an ordinary situation this phase finally gives way to rounded teens who have had their fun and are prepared to slot into society. With the Jehovah’s Witnesses this phase is longer, and in a number of cases leads to lasting damage – as the teen adopts a personality which always attempts to find boundaries and push beyond them.

At this time every single ‘young one’ in the congregation had either been smoking, drinking, engaging in unethical behavior, and in certain cases taking ‘soft’ drugs. Not a single person between 14-18 was free from this behaviour. I know because I was right there concerned with them. We had a status quo – you do not tell on me – I won’t tell on you. This situation was end as I turned sixteen.

The seeds for this shattering of the established order started much earlier with the son of Elder-Evil, himself a pompous twit, frequently reporting minor infractions to the Elders. I recall being in difficulty for ‘violent’ software games – this was back in the times of sprites on the screen, vs today’s GTA and other genuinely violent games.

I don’t recall precisely what started the subsequent 2 years fight, but I remember this 5 foot hobbit and his dad, deciding that my music tastes were anti-Jehovah – and pushing for a full censure. Since I had some ‘dirt’ on him, I made sure this was also brought to the elders’ attention. And so we started a tit for tat war that ultimately concerned the whole congregation.

I did not help the situation by growing a goatee beard and showing up to witness B.B.Q.s with Metallica t-shirts. The key difference was that while I was openly rebellious, the youngsters of this Elder were extraordinarily God fearing in the congregation but away from their dads eyes – they were just as non Christian as I.

by the time my 16th birthday arrived 5 youngsters had already left and one was seriously unwell with anorexia. I was now this Elders primary target, and the accusations had increased to immorality, mysticism, alcoholism, and virtually everything else they could think of. I at last admitted to some immorality with his child – which further infuriated this elder, though that is what I wanted!

The congregation of 35-40 members was fractured right down the centre with certain families ignoring each other. There was no ‘Christian-love’ and the atmosphere in the meetings was acidic. Elders would ‘stare down’ other elders during talks and these talks would be used as attack platforms with whole diatribes focused on how tough an individual member was.
