Twisted Things, False Assumptions, and Outright Lies.

According to Watchtower, 'THE BIBLE' says that JW's who leave the Watchtower Society (i.e. apostates) are 'mentally diseased', especially if they disagree with the organization's teachings.

'Mentally Diseased' and Possessed By Demons.

'Paul described such individuals as being “puffed up with pride, not understanding anything, but being mentally diseased over questionings and debates about words.” (1 Tim. 6:3, 4) Could Timothy risk toying with the harmful ideas that were infiltrating the congregation? No, for Paul urged Timothy to “fight the fine fight of the faith” and turn away “from the empty speeches that violate what is holy and from the contradictions of the falsely called ‘knowledge.’” (1 Tim. 6:12, 20, 21) ... Interestingly, Timothy was told that in “later periods of time some [would] fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons.” (1 Tim. 4:1) All in the congregation, including those in positions of responsibility, need to be like Timothy in displaying strong, unwavering faith. By taking a strong stand and decisive action against apostasy, we can make our advancement manifest and be an example in faith.' [1]

'The Bible says that apostates are mentally diseased. ... We do not speak to them ... We also do not read their books, watch them on television, read what they write on the Internet, or add our own comments about what they write on the Internet. ... We must always be careful not to think like people in Satan’s world. ... remember that Satan wants to fool us, and no one knows better how to fool people than he does.' [2]
