    I read the postings about 1975 and have the same feeling about the 1988 - 1989 period, the time of my baptism.

    I remember the convention that year with the release of the Revelation book. With the Assisi Religion leaders call for peace and unity, and the events in the USSR and the release of the Revelation book, I was thinking the end was very near and it would be a miracle that we could reach 1990.

    So I was full of spirit, just becoming a MS and a pioneer.

    Do you remember this feeling about the Revelation book release time also??

    Hi Gorby, I was around in 1975 so got totally caught up with the end is imminent feeling. I too was a pioneer and a mini servant. Strangly the Revelation book was really the beginning of my doubts about the org. You may remeber they have a go at everybody in the 7 bowles of God's wrath I believe. And when they started saying about certain assemblies being a fulfillment of bible prophesies regarding certain years, I new it was time to get out of this mad religion. Best thing I ever did!

    Those teachings about certain assemblies being a fullfillment of Bible prophesies where around long before the Revelation Climax book Alanv, I think you will find them in the previous version, Finished Mystery was it?, and in the old Daniel book.

    Just think, if you had obeyed the Faithfull and descreet slaves advice to study more, you could have discovered this information years earlier and been out!

    It was when I had to study for the third time about how the Cedar Point, Ohio assemblies fulfilled the trumpet blasts of judgement in the book of Revelation or some such nonsense that I realised I had had enough & that this religion was totally deluded as to its importance in fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

    And yes Gorby I recall there was an air of excitement within the Borg around that time when Pope John Paul II organised the 'World Day of Prayer for Peace'.

    Haha, the Cedar Point trumpet blasts.

    Wow, that seems so funny now.

    The WTS./JWS created many more deluded idiots than yourself Gorby, they weren't truly interested in telling the Truth but were more

    interested in selling and distributing more of their published goods.

    Unfortunately this delusion continues on to this day by people who are still practicing JWS.

    The WTS. has always been a indulgent commercialized farce, exploiting people ignorances and insecurities.
