    Just because your Dad isn't a baptised JW, doesn't mean he isn't under their mind control.

    I was that Dad to my kids. Don't take anything for granted. Always test the waters before you jump in head first. We all think our families are different, but few of us get the reception we thought we would when we announce that the WT is full of crap.

    Please be carefull

    A friend who had left the J.W’s used to believe he and would die at Armageddon. Then he read Crisis of Conscience and changed his mind.

    I assure you that if you don’t die of a disease, accident or natural disaster, you will die of old age. Armageddon is a much an illusion as 1914 is.

    If you’re not convinced after reading C of C, read Russell’s books. There are digital copies on line that you can download. Here’s what he puts forward as proof for his 1914 date:

    The " Descending Passage," from tlie entrance of the

    Great Pyramid, leading to the " Pit " or " Subterranean

    Chamber," represents the course of the world in general

    (under the prince of this world). into the great time of

    trouble (the " Pit "), in which evil shall be brought to an

    end. The measuring of this period and determining d e n

    the pit of trouble shall be reached are easy enough if

    we have a definite date-a point in the Pyramid L-om

    which to start. We have this date-mark in the junction

    of the " First Ascending Passage" with the "Grand

    Gdery." That point rnarks the birth o£ our Lord Jesus.

    as the " Well," 33 inches farther on, indicates his death.

    So, then, if we measure backward down the "First

    Ascending Passage" to its junction with the " Entrance

    Passage," we shall have a fixed date to mark upon the

    donnward passage. This measure is 1542 inches, and

    indicates the year B. C. 1542, as the date at that point.

    Then measuring abwn the " Entrance Passage" from that

    point, to find the distance to the entrance of the "Pit,"

    representing the great trouble and destruction witb

    which this age is to close, when evil will be overthrown

    from pomer, me find it to be 3457 inches, syrnbolizing

    3457 years from tlie above date, B. c. I 542. This calculation

    shows A. D. 191 5 as marking the beginning of the

    pkod of trouble; for 1542 years B. c. plus 1915 years

    A. D. equals 3457 years. Thus the Pyramid witnesses

    that the close o£ 1914will be the bea&ning of the time .

    of trouble such as was not since there was a nation-no,

    nor ever shall be afterward. And thus it will be noted

    that this " Witness" fully corroborates the Bible testimony

    on this subject, as shown by the "Parallel Dispensations"

    in SCRIPTUSRTEU DIESV,O L. 11.. Chap. vii.

    Nor should any doubt the fact that the forty years

    "harvest" began in the Ea11 of 1874

    Dear Peter: You will not die in Armageddon.

    You are in the most uncomfortable situation I can imagine: you see the fallacy of the WT but you still believe they have the "big picture" right.

    Keep reading, keep learning, keep reasoning... You will wake up one day and be trully free and you will live a long, prosperous, happy life.
