Have JW's and Christians been "duped" into believing Armaggeddon/Rapture?

    My friend wants no part of JW's or Christians or any other religion for that matter. She said that she wasted her life waiting for Armaggeddon and then the Rapture when she became born-again. She said religious people are living in a "dream-world" waiting for something that is not going to come. She believes that Jehovah and Jesus are getting a good laugh at guilable people on earth believing in a fantasy. What could I say to my friend? Is she right about people believing in a fantasy?

    The Christians expected it to happen in the first century, and have continued to expect it for 2000 years now. If a person puts their life on hold, because Armaggeddon/Rapture is just about to happen, then they have been duped. Years turn into decades and "expectation postponed is making the heart sick".

    Whether it is going to happen or not is irrelevant, it should not change the way a person lives their life. Worship is about God, not what he owes a person.
