This may seem like a strange question, but I'd like to understand. My brother-in-law decided he can't be a witness anymore. No half way-he has left entirely. When we tried to discuss it with him, he really dodged around it, and seemed really agitated when I said I had read Franz's book & suggested it would help my sister (half in-half-out). He "knows" he will die at armaggedon.
If you believe in an afterlife, how do you purposely decide what you think you have to do to get there, is too much, and you'd rather be annihilated or (as some people believe) burn for eternity, to live some half-a**ed life here now?
I understand some of you think this is a stupid concept to begin with, but let's side-step that arguement for the sake of what you understand about this.
I mean, wouldn't it weigh on you every day, worrying that you'd be hit by a car, or something and the game would be over, and it would be time to "pay up"?
