First of all. Hi everyone, sorry I didn't write or participate here for a while. My second child was born. I took time of work. Spend a lot of time with the family and travelled to my birth country - Latvia.
Second of all this topic might be dodgy for people who fully don't believe in God.
In Latvia I met with many of my friends including with one JW brother. I became a JW in Latvia and stopped going to the meetings when I moved to UK, so a lot of JWs from Latvia quietly keep in touch with me. This Latvian brother for many years has a desire to leave the Org, but he is afraid. So, long story short.
Brother - Is life difficult without Jehovah?
Me - Do you think I live without God?
Brother - Well yeah.
Me - Because I am not a JW doesn't mean I am without God. In fact my relationship with God became better and deeper since I left the Org. I don't need to believe in God, I know God exists. I pray to God every day. I had relationship with God before the Org. The Org was just part of my journey to understand God, but for me the Org never substituted God. Since I left the Org God never stopped supporting me. 10 years I live without calling God Jehovah. 10 years without Jehovah, the Org and the elders and I feel amazing. I married an amazing Welsh girl. I have two healthy babies. I have my own small business and I became a published Author.
Brother - But is that Jehovah helping you?
Me - Nobody knows what God is. The Org is only saying they know true God, but they know nothing. Just look what mess they did with all their predictions. Real God would never make such stupid mistakes and destroy peoples lives. There is God and in my opinion this God has relationship with people personally. God doesn't care what religion you are.
Brother - So I will be fine if I leave the Org?
Me - Yes.
Dear JW brothers and sisters if you read this and you are afraid to lose connection with God by leaving the Org, don't be. Your relationship will only get better because between you and God there will nobody. The Org and the elders wont be in your way for you to connect with God. Be courageous and brave and dont' let the Org scare you.
