This perfectly describes my wife and her family. They believe that we're in 'the last days' and that god will 'step in soon' and bring peace and order to the universe. The whole fairy tale lived-happily-ever-after thing.
They don't believe god is going to kill every last non JW bastard on the planet, just the REALLY BAD guys. They don't believe in every last ray of New Light streaming from the pages of the mags (overlapping generations). And they certainly don't follow all the rules and regulations to a T. For the most part, they will follow their conscience and not just do something because they're 'supposed to.' I have to admire them for that. They are a bit 'rogue.'
BROKEN PROMISES got it right when he said each generation ( the real kind) kind of picks out what it learned growing up and sticks with it no matter what changes. My wife is a perfect example. She's always finding out she is no longer 'in step.'
