I respect the view that I may be taking a risk but I just can't say nothing. It's just not my nature as I'm a very open person. I don't sense he will make trouble for me. I guess will see. I think my reply was balanced. There is a bit of BS in there.
You raise some good points. I guess I just don't see things as black and white anymore. I definitely plan on telling my son of my firm belief in a Creator and also Jesus' role in matters. I don't have the best memories of having grown up in the Watchtower organization. I don't want my son to grow up with the guilt that I did. I want him to use his own thinking to decide the best course for himself whatever that might be. I can assure you that he will be loved unconditionally. I respect that you are happy in the organization and I wish you and your family the best. I agree that there are many truths. I also feel that much is left to be revealed as you alluded to somewhat. I think of 1 Corinthians 13:12: "For at present we see in hazy outline by means of a metal mirror, but then it will be face to face. At present I know partially, but then I shall know accurately even as I am accurately known." I definitely still have faith and I take comfort from scriptures like these: "Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people." - Romans 5:18
" He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. " - 1 John 2:2
"For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people." - 1 Timothy 2:5,6
