LikeLike Reply Was raised a Jehovah’s Witness but haven’t been active for over ten years LikeLiked by 2 people How come you haven’t been active? What is your view about this religion or about religion in general? LikeLike When I was a kid I believed that my parents knew everything. If they said something was true, then it was true.

Same with church but the opposite. Those people are great SMH, NO, no, they aren’t, or at least not the ones I knew. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I also believed my parents new everything.
