I was thinking (before I go buy my lottery ticket) , I have probably spent at least an hour of my time on this forum for each of those posts and not your typical kiss-me posts that some people love to fill up the forum with, either.-- 7777 hours is a lot of time and I have been reflecting on this almost eight year voyage- has it been worth it? For me personally, yes it has. I learned quite a bit about myself and how other people's thinking process works- If I knew what meds some were on, I wouldn't have wasted my time trying to convince them they aren't the messiah--
I am pretty sure faders will always (unless they get df'd)- hope to avoid a showdown with mommy and daddy, hoping their kids will see the light before their spouse divorces them, hoping they can keep fooling the elders and sit through another assembly with a straight face- I have pretty much confirmed how human nature works for that 99% of enlightened JWs. Fading is not a great plan, but a plan the fearful always latch onto. The newly enlightened JW who loves truth and freedom doesn't need to see the advanatges of quitting the WT cult religion and gaining control of their life- they run out of that KH- damn the torpedos- if family doesn't like it, then that is their right to stay in the KH- they give them a good witness as to the WT fraud, lies and corruption and then they leave with their honor and integrity intact.= They aren't going to be a doormat for the elders and give up their freedom, in order to obey some old geezers in Bethel, no not even for another day. JW spouses will continue to hurt spouses who quit the KH and nothing I say will stop that injustice, which I personally know all about.
What's next? Well, I am done giving advice and opinion here about JW stuff, that is what I have decided. I might drop in to say hello, how are you doing- what's new, but that's it. I will not waste another of my limited ( and declining with age as I speak) brain cells trying to help challeneged people find the cajones to tell the elders- take this false religion and shove it- One evening of Internet research can tell a JW all he needs to know about Judge RutherFraud and his Millions now living will never die, Beth Sarim, Princes, 1975, 1914, etc - they can leave under their own steam anytime they choose.
Only a few ex-JWs , could walk into a KH and give'm hell- will anyone rise up to replace me? We shall see, what we shall see.
