Do any of you ex-JW's still believe in God? Even with the new rebranding/softening of this religion, I still don't see how people can believe in him. The God of the old testimate is an angry murderer who approved rapes and slavery and killed thousands of men, women and children. The Noah's flood story and the story of creation makes absolutely no scientific sense. There is so much evidence supporting evolution. Jesus is a wonderful character, but the Revelation account is horrible..Now that my eyes have been opened, I don't understand how anyone can believe. Yet, so many do!
Perhaps if JWs received a BUT LOAD of "new light"..like, did away with disfellowshipping, got rid of the idea that everyone but JWs would survive Armageddon, approved sex before marriage and homosexuality and looked at the bible as being just a story book of lessons, I could get back in to it..but the looming fact remains that the idea of "God" who, like Santa, is constantly staring at us to determine if we're good or evil is a bit ludicrous.
What do you think?
