    No, not really.

    Since I was never certain whether I (or my family members) would live or die, as based on JW standards, I wasn't in a hurry for it to come.

    I was expecting it to come in 1975 as so did many others, I spent that entire year bent over kissing my ass good-bye all for nothing, man was I ever annoyed

    For a long time as a JW I expected god to kill most of the people on earth. I never really saw how that was right, but tried to tune it out. So, no, I didn't want to see the end come.

    I was pissed that I had been tricked and lied to. It was easy to accept that I was stupid, but it was hard to accept that my parents were idiots.

    Absolutely not. I didn't agree with 'Jehovah's' rules and morality, so I thought I was going to die a horrible death along with 6 billion others.

    No Way. When I was a JW I was never a great believer even tho I was in it for 38 years and always worried that if it was real that I cerainly wouldnt be saved as i certainly wasn't a "good" JW. Now I live life to the full and don't give it a second thought. Can't imagine it ever is going to come and certanly don't want it to. But isn't that what all us bad apostates are supposed to believe anyway?

    Since the Bible said, "No man knows the day and hour", I thought it was stupid to speculate.

    When I was a child I was so terrified of the prospect of that happening that I literally lost sleep over it. I was not only scared that I wasn't good enough but was scared of the whole immensity of the thing. The descriptions used to describe it made me nervous at meetings and added to the feelings that I wasnt' good enough for Jah. compared to the drones sitting around me with their expressionless faces or the more animated ones who smiled and shook their head in agreement. I use to daydream about the prospect of the whole thing being false and hoping against hope that it was.

    A world of JW's, I mean really when you think about it it's very hellish!

    Plus I figured I would never make it thru the Great Trib, and if you die there you're dead everywhere!!
