    After being made fun of my believes that the soul doesn't go on after death.I prayed for Jehovah to help me and I felt my spirit inside my body as if it were dead!:eek:But while I was still alive!:)After I realized what i had just been shown I laughed!:)

    So know i want to know ALL the stuff jws believe about the soul.So i wont be laughed at again!:)So to get to the point I don't believe in the soul flying off to some heaven or hell some were!:)

    "felt" isn't "faith". "felt" is "feeling" and can be very subjective. "Feeling" is as unreliable as "flesh". What you need is "faith" in God's word, and to cease from doubting:

    Rom_10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Rom 14:23 "... for whatsoever is not of faith is sin."

    and, most importantly:

    1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

    So, if you worry more about what men think of you, or say, you got bigger issues with God, for men ought to consider what God thinks of them first (priority). They ought to consider whether they have the Frown or Approbation of God's Smile upon them.

    Stop worrying about what a group of people think, and concentrate on what the Bible (KJB) itself says. WTS/JW has plenty of error, and even errs in the state of the dead on Jesus resurrection and the matter of the 144,000. So stop worrying about what men say.

    You have a command from Jesus:

    Joh_5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

    You have admonition from God's own Spirit:

    Act 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

    1Th 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.
    1Th 5:20 Despise not prophesyings.
    1Th 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

    Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

    You are told that scripture is of no private interpretation, for God interprets:

    Gen 40:8 And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

    2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    Dan_2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

    Luk_24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

    Therefore, you are instructed what to do therein:

    Jas_1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    Then do not wait for feeling, nor flesh. Ask in faith:

    Jas 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
    Jas 1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
    Jas 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

    You mean like this?

    Job 4:12 Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.
    Job 4:13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,
    Job 4:14 Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.

    read the rest of the context ...

    Seems to me if you are going to identify with a religious group, you have to at least believe the stuff.
