Yep, thats about as much of the Bible as I care to believe in, or quote, except "you will know the truth and the truth will set you free". The only two verses I care for. The Bible is BS, religion is BS, and the JW's are the ultimate form of BS. With this sites help it has been a cleansing experience. I remember when I first started to fade, that I felt guilt and that I was going to be struck dead by YHWH at any moment. Then after some time the guilt went away, but I still hung onto JW beliefs and Bible doctrine. Now I could freaking care less about the Bible, and the JW's. I am free at last, free at last. The best part of all???? I am recently celebrating my FIRST CHRISTMAS with my wife, who I had a hell of time getting out of the borg. She sees it as BULLSHIT also. They only one still in is my mother, but half assed at best. Birthdays, Xmas, etc. are great, and even better with family and friends. I have successfully freed everyone in my family and extended family, except for one, but we are still working on that.
My view to life now? Eat, sleep, and be merry for tomorrow I may die. I don't know if god exists, surely not the way the Bible and religion speak of it, but my philosophy, is I don't go into gods house, and he doesn't come into mine.
For everyone still struggling to get out, make the leap, its the best thing you will ever do. For those that are scared of losing family, work on them until they see the light. Otherwise LIVE YOUR LIFE, for this indeed may be all the time we are given, use it wisely.
To everyone, have a Happy Christmas and New Year!!!
