I went from JW right to atheism because it was critical study of the bible and the facts of evolution that showed me there is no god. At least not a theistic god. I facepalm reading criss of conscience
One man says I "lost" my faith if I stop believing in the Bible and/or God.
Well, I "found my out" of faith. My definition of faith is "belief in what cannot be proven." I won't get all bogged down on what is proof to you compared to me. I will say that I have proven to myself that the Bible is from men and I am satisfied that the gods of men are from men also.
No loss of faith. If you insist on saying it that way, then I could also say believers have lost their logic and reasoning.
If you are truthful and bold enough, your faith would turn into apostasy and finally Atheism. Your title speaks for itself.
Truthful and bold enough means Examining the Bible Or other so called religious texts with an Open mind and standing for the truth.
So it's "developed technologies" and those who use them you have put your FAITH in?
DT: of course not, that would be another man made religion. but

I am looking forward to being on April 8, 2024 at precisely 3:27 pm near the assignment of the Allan sisters in last week's wt study.

*** Johann Kepler, who's 3rd law of planetary motion is still used today to precisely calculate small body orbits. still true after 400 years,
J k was disfellowshipped . why?
apostasy. the fat J for the tribe of Joseph.
The More the Merrier!
The More the Merrier!
DT: right. Joseph has the last laugh.
As I said, most that leave being a JW become,,,atheists!
I think the term "Religioned Out" best describes many who leave the JWs.
That is certainly how I felt after I finally managed to break free from that bloody lot!
Teachy - No, Punky, unicorns are real. Just ask my niece!
My grandies think so too.
Tommo - As I said, most that leave being a JW become,,,atheists!
For my part, I became a main stream Christian when I left. I became a 'non-believer' much later on.
I would think it reasonable to surmise that it's different for all people who leave Jobotism.
A Pastor said to me that because of the way the Cult brainwashes people it's little wonder they lose ALL faith when they escape captivity of the fake JW religion.
