DAN THE MAN
I Would like to say that THEY DONT HAVE THE POWER TO TAKE ANYTHING AWAY.the spiritual paradise mentioned doesnot belong to j.w exclusivly ,the hope that you mention is on offer to everyone if you want it .
yes we all have to face that we are free now but what you do with your life depends upon what you deem to do with it.
you have more freedom now ,what are you going to do with it ??????get of your backsides and do something instead of just thinking ,as every negative thought is followed by a negative action even a response ,yes we awaiting the final call of death but in the meantime enjoy yourself and the reason why you have gone through so much is that you are still learning /and experiencing life eventualy given all your experiences you may be able to help others .
