    Hello and welcome CTR!

    I'm glad you are out of the ratrace known as the WTS, and happy that you have found a religion that you are comfortable with. I raised five children and a grandson as JWs and I regret it every day. It really did a number on their heads and has affected them (and me) adversly. It is a horrid excuse for a religion.

    Some words are triggers that snap an ex-JW right back in to his old life, old cages of thought. Jehovah is one of those words. Playing with the word reduces it's power.

    This was beautifully expressed! I still don't use the name when praying.....and I can't bring myself to use the "substitutions" we see here either! I simply avoid it altogether.

    I'm glad you found this's a great place!

    Welcome CTR ! When I read you had six kids, my first thought was, he must have become a Catholic or a Mormon. Anyway, looking forward to your posts! Peace

    For those of you who think Mormons are just like JW's I can relate, however we really are nothing alike.

    The doctrine might be different but basically they were both started by a man who tried to determine the will of God.

    I have researched Mormonism quite extensively and to say the Book of Mormon is written by God himself, well you have to wonder. The phrase "And it came to pass" occurs over 3000 times in the book. Not to mention there is absolutely zero archaeological evidence the people or civilizations mentioned in the book ever existed.

    "The doctrine might be different but basically they were both started by a man who tried to determine the will of God."

    Agree to disagree - not here to argue one religion against another. I do respect your point of view, thank you for your comments, CTR
