    from your days as an active witness...


    The Trinity - I know some former JW's who still dont believe in the trinity, and cant fathom there being one
    Holidays - I mean, can you celebrate xmas without feeling guilty and if you celebrate xmas , do you celebrate it as Jesus' b-day.. (i didnt know the origin until a couple of years ago ) So I celebrate it as just a festive family day... Plus I LOVE to cook,
    Church - Can you go to another divisions church without thinking they got it all wrong or your JW teaching creeping back

    or have you found yourself just believing in nothing anymore?

    yep - no trinity, no hellfire, no immortal soul, xmas & Easter are pagan in origin etc

    No trinity

    I have no attachment to the holidays but do participate for the sake of others

    Churches I feel are good for those who need them, though to me are clinics for the needy

    Yesterday I thanked Jehovah when the sun came out. I stopped and questioned myself and then said oh so what? It felt good to thank somebody for that warm ray of sunshine.

    I believe in a triune God but not in the Trinity that the WTBTS incorrectly defines for "Christendom."

    I celebrate holidays:

    Col 2:16 Therefore don’t let anyone judge you in regard to food and drink or in the matter of a festival or a new moon or a sabbath day.

    I worship Jesus every day and join others several times a week to worship Him. In other words, Church.

    I have never met any JW who knows what is trinity and understands what christians mean by it!

    Yes. Indigo Children/Adults.

    I don't believe in the trinity, not quite sure about the immortality of the soul, but I have no problems with mainstrean non cultic churches and with holidays.

    I still believe religion is a snare and a racket . . .
