Hello, I'm new here and have woken up to the real truth concerning the org. I'm sort of fading away at the moment...
I need help with something, I used to as a child celebrate Christmas and have always had amazing memories of it (My husband hasn't as he was born into the org) but I gave it up when I learnt the "truth". My interest was only in pleasing God and still is.
I no longer consider myself a JW, but I do consider myself a Christian. The thing is, I feel like I desperately want to celebrate Christmas again and want my daughter to experience it, BUT I can't help but feel so conflicted and guilty, because it's pagan right? So how can it be right to? I just want to please God and do the right thing. Can any Christians please give me any advice? I don't want to be like the israelites and do what is wrong in God's eyes. I haven't left the org just to turn to a life where I feel free to sin...I still believe in the bible and God.
