believe this is why my husband has SUCH a hard time opening his eyes.
He is protected from all of it.( His family is/was very liberal) He left for nearly 30 years, allowing his
brain to believe whatever he wants and not being subjected to the
insanity of it all.Not having to do the mental gymnastics since he was not having to answer for his actions.
period of time he was temporarily involved with studies, he got excited
thinking he was learning things he believe he instinctively knew, ( duh ,
he was raised in it) and thought that it HAD to be the truth because he was already thinking these things. He dove in with both feet, took the headship thing way too far, and became almost impossible to live with. Thankfully, only a small portion of that remains. It's mostly gone now, though enough to make trouble in our marriage.
If he was in a non-liberal KH and was promptly subjected to the loss of love bombing right after baptism, pressured for time, ( especially that one since he wakes up at noon or so on Saturdays, and Sundays, always) corrected on his clothing, etc, any of these things, I believe it might do something to help him wake up ( or maybe not, which is why it scares the hell out of me).
