My dad woke up about 3 years ago and said nothing. My sister woke up about a year ago. My mom about a month ago, myself shortly after. I realize this religion is a facade, it's man-made and fake, but i'm confused, scared and a teenager. I'm fourteen and joined this website for some help. We went from pretty hardcore JDubs to a agnostic/atheist/skeptic/deitest family. My family is changing fast and maybe it's because i've been brainwashed from childhood to believe Jehovah's Witnesses is the truth, while in the course of a week I realize that it's man-made, Jehovah dosen't exist (like losing Santa Claus x100000) and The Bible was written by a bunch of sex-deprived massaganistic (spell?) goat-herders. My closest friend of fourteen years is in a hardcore JW family, and my little cousin is like a little brother to me and I don't want to be shunned by that part of family. We're just JW's on the outside having to lie to friends and family that we believe it's the truth. Then again, I have a "worldly" girlfriend who i can confide in who is very supportive. My question is, is there other JW teenagers or not teenagers that know where I'm coming from? Are you still on the outside? Are you out now? How did you fade or go out cold turkey? Feedback ASAP would be great - I'm going crazy here. Sorry for the super-long post.
Torn In Two Son
P.S. I'm very fourteen if you hadn't guessed. Also, i'm the son of "Open Mind" on here so, if you know him then this is his son.
