Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness (JW) can warp and twist a young person’s mind about many activities, sex in particular. Sitting in the Kingdom Hall as a young child, I would hear talks about sex, but they were, for the most part, warnings about what not to do—what was moral and what was not— but mostly not. So I promised myself that as soon I found out what the heck they were, I would never do them.
Masturbation was wrong, mutual masturbation was wrong, and both oral and anal sex were wrong. As I grew up, I came to understand what sex is really all about, according to Watchtower teachings. Well yes, but I also learned that sex was something that married couples do or “due”, as in “paying your dues”.
The are a complete waste and drain on society and the economy. They are just sitting around waiting for the world to end, which when it does all JW's will get into the new system and all non-JW's will be killed by god! Wife: Oh, two Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on the door at 7am this morning and I immediately told them I was disfellowedshipped.
Sociologist Andrew Holden claims meetings create an atmosphere of uniformity for Witnesses, intensify their sense of belonging to a religious community, and reinforce the plausibility of the organization's belief system.
Two meetings each week are divided into five distinct sections, lasting a total of about four hours.
Meetings are opened and closed with hymns and brief prayers delivered from the platform.
I would think: Okay, those things are wrong, but I don’t even know what those wrong things are.
Wifely dues were something the husband wanted but the wife didn’t particularly like.
