I also recall in the 60-70's preparing for the great tribulation, do not miss a book study you may not know where the next meeting is being held. We prepared for underground activity. it was talked about a lot at the kh. How would you prepare to die for Jehovah? Jehovah's spirit would help you endure the pain of persecution or it would take away the pain. I vividly recall a car group where it was discussed being raped while still a virgin. I was married and they said it was not as awful, after all, I'd had sex before. I could go on . crazy jws.
yes shanagirl, your post is spot on. BTW, they just killed all the inactive and apostates at this summers DC. If you are not an active jws, you are dead to them.
