Almost ALL of Jehovah's Witnesses do not physically or mentally act as if they believe in God. They will not take responsibility or accountability for any wrong that they do, and they can justify anything from theft to sins of omission as long as there is a sob story attached to it. They do not act as if there is a God who is looking at their human actions as if he were to judge character, compassion, love, honor, and integrity.
They take this to the point where obeying an organization is more important than obeying god himself.
So upon leaving and no longer believing in god, what is there that changes? What difference is it if you just admit the truth? Nothing actually changes except one thing: You are now accountable for your own actions. Good things are not “miracles from god” and bad things are not “attacks from satan.” That is pretty much the only change.
Otherwise, good people are still good, moral people are still moral, mean people are still mean, and the cowardly will still be cowardly.
