I came here still a JW , mostly in my head.
I do understand. When I first came here posting as myself, I had left the JWS but I was still looking at the merits of Christianity and other major religions. After much debating, I dismissed the whole concept of holy books and organized religion. I reinvented myself as a gladiator in order to enjoy the freedom of anonymity and have a light hearted approach. That does wear thin after a while and something more meaningful is needed to continue posting. This forum has been of great help mentally and emotionally.
I too have no problem with those who search for answers and question,
but hypocrites who only wish to debate and accuse get what they sow as far as i am concerned.
You raise an interesting point. Having dismissed the merits of religion, I have over the years done my fair share of Christian baiting. Mostly out of genuine frustration at their unfounded declarations and inconsistency. At other times purely for fun. After much soul searching, despite not having a soul, I have endeavoured to be kinder.
I ask, how is Christian baiting any different from people claiming to be JWs coming on here and winding up ex JWs just for the the hell of it?
