Hi. I’m JW Student*
I am a 48-year-old guy, born in the UK, who first came into contact with the Jehovah’s Witnesses when I was about five or six as my father was studying with the Witnesses at the time. I remember going along to a Kingdom Hall once and all I recall of that trip was seeing a clean and tidy place that had lots of seats, a stage with a rostrum and speaker, and lots of guys wearing suits. That image stuck with me for the rest of my life. In 1994 I became a “born again Christian” and stayed with that for about 19 years. However, there were certain beliefs that this religion had that I struggled with, such as the doctrine of hell and the trinity, which nobody was able to explain to me satisfactorily. During these 20 years my mind kept coming back to that memory I had of my visit to the Kingdom Hall.
