Now that I'm out and looking back, it seems like such a dream. I was in for 25 years. Did we REALLY believe all this stuff? Yes, I know we did. It just seems so unreal that all these millions of people are running around completely oblivious to life around them, totally wrapped up in this fantasy of Armageddon and Paradise. Did this really happen?
Did we really carry cards in our wallets, instructing the doctor to let us die instead of accepting life-saving treatment?
Did we really let older men in Brooklyn that we have never met makes rules for every aspect of our life - saving seats, not leaving the convention at lunch, not sitting in the same seats at the meetings, not hanging out with co-workers, rules for sex between married people, etc...?
Did we really think that we knew ALL ABOUT other religions, and were experts on the subject?
Without ever examing the evidence, did we really believe God chose this organization in 1919?
Wow - it almost seems like a bad dream. We were 100% under their mind control. It all seems so silly when you are on the outside looking in. Now I know what all these people around me were thinking when I was telling them about 1914 and Armageddon is gonna happen any day now and that they must join my church to get saved!
Yes, we REALLY DID believe this stuff. Wow!!!!!
Does it seem unbelievable to you, as you look back on it?
