    As a Witness, when you thought about Jesus Christ, what was the first thing that came to your mind?

    A well meaning bachelor that did his charitable works outside the mainstream establishment with a minimum of overhead, management. He did not have an accurate understanding of nature.

    That jws are so focused on god, that they don't know Jesus as a person, just a tool for their salvation. In my Comments, I always looked for the parts that made me think, where is Jesus in this equation?

    Most jws don't know enough about Jesus to be a real friend that they can be with and give to, not just someone that gives to them.

    I do believe that Jesus existed, a good person that used his life to help others with his strength and abilities. We could all imitate him that he is a real person or not.

    I felt horrified that he was tortured to death for me. I struggled with that teaching from age sixteen.

    Even as a young child or teenager being raised up from birth as a Jehovah's Witness - I never could wrap my mind around THIS question : What sane or normal father ( God ) would ever put his own son ( Jesus ) to death and let him suffer ? And for what ? Millions of human beings are going to be " saved " or " redeemed " by this ? Ridiculous. So in a way as a JW kid, I felt sorry for Jesus having a father who would do that to him.

    Like the words in the song Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles, " Eleanor Rigby, died in the church and was buried along with her name. Nobody came. Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave. NO ONE was saved. "

    Basically I have the same view. Religion is used to give people false, illusionary

    hopes that aren't true or real. Peace out, Mr. Flipper
