I found precious little in common with my Jehovah Witness experience and even the Jesus of the Bible. I went back and re-read the Gospel accounts of Jesus with ex-JW eyes and came to a fresh and more appreciative understanding of who Jesus really was.
I also came to another conclusion that surprised me. JWs have no real faith in God that I could tell. I didn't realize this until I began to have serious doubts and began sincerely looking for help by the smartest and spiritually strongest JWs I could meet and who would talk to me.
To my dismay I met with panic, fear, anger, but not one time did I EVER meet anyone who could rationally answer my questions without becoming emotionally distraught. Dismantle their doctrines with a few well chosen questions and they become angry or frightened. I've seen it happen time after time. Where is their great love of God, their great love of truth, their great faith? If you can turn a long-time JW in a quivering blob of cowardly jelly with a few simple direct questions it proves beyond a shadow of doubt that they have no real faith in God. It's only in a man-made religious institution that long ago left off pursuing the values they claim to hold dear. It's all about maintaining the corporation. You begin to take their faith in the corporation apart and watch the JW's demeanor crumble like a dry cookie.
The JW God is a corporation disguised as Jehovah. And a corporation makes a very poor God.
