Was your witness worship acceptable to God?

    Foir those who believe in a god.

    Do you feel that your worship as a Jehovahs witness was acceptable to God?

    If yes, then why did you leave?

    If not, that means God has a certain satandard of worship, how do you know you meet that now?

    Yes, because I was doing my best, and I left because the JW Organization, with its hypocracy, double standards, child abuse, and blood issue is not acceptable to God.

    Whoa, whoa there! Steady on! Not so fast!

    Leaving the Borg was because of seeing clearly that salvation was not through an organisation but in personal relationship with God.

    Freedom from the Borg meant that we are no longer bound by the petty rules of man, that put "heavy loads" on us, in the words of Jesus.

    It's no longer a matter of trying to please him, as if we could give Him anything. Our salvation is not by works, as the WTS teaches, but rather because of the undeserved kindness (Grace) of God.

    A realisation of that makes us know that we can serve our Lord each day.

    Suggest you read the Bible book of Roamsn, especially chapters 8 and 9.

    Cheers, Ozzie
