    Do you use the name "Jehovah" when referring to God?


    I am trying to think about what they teach that I might still believe....................hmmm, still pondering.

    I don't believe in hell, or heaven for that matter. I think when you die you change form, or move into a different level of conciousness, whether you can remember your previous form is something whatever I become might find out. We can't be living this life for nothing, I think all the experiences we go through mold our 'spirit' which helps determine what it might become when this life has ended.
    I don't think the bible was written by god, but that it does have some good advice in it that we can follow.
    Oh and I use the name Jehovah when arguing about god with my family. Don't believe in god either, just that there is something wierd out there, and in some future life maybe I'll find out what that is.

    Don't know what I believe as far as religion goes--don't trust anything JW anymore. I still believe in the universal law of love (love thy neighbor) Other than that I can't be sure of anything I don't see with my own eyes.

    I've pretty much dismissed of all the JW teachings. There's a few scraps still left that need to be cleaned up (ie the ouiji board issue), but I've done a pretty good job in renewing my beliefs and morals.

    "Religion is a snare and a racket."

    "If someone claims to be a prophet and their prophesying does not come true, they are a false prophet."

    Yeah that works for me. Oh and that there is a God.

    I truly believe there's no other form of life after death. That keeps me in peace.

    If the almighty God(s) don't approve of me, then I'll just sleep profoundly for eternity. Not bad at all, really, in exchange for doing what I really please now!

    After reading the Bible, I pretty much jettisoned all J-Dub teachings.

    My thinking was that God got a much higher degree of respect than a bunch of old men insulated in their apartments in Brooklyn.
