    Yes, Newboy

    Hubby (Baalam'sAss) and I were 13 and 16 years old, and already baptized at ages 12 and 13 when those articles first came out in 1968. ALL the Borganization did was beat the drum that the "Great Tribulation was scheduled to begin ON or BEFORE 1975. That "The Great Day of God the Almighty" (Armaggdon), the destruction of every man, woman, and child not baptized or baptized and only doing "TOKEN SERVICE" Would be bird food.

    It is important to note that we are not talking about a couple of articles in the magizines or a couple of veiled predictions in the study books. This frantic atmosphere permeated every discussion, meeting, assembly, and convention from 1968 through 1975.

    The of JWs were not fooled Sometimes. We were fooled ALL of the time.

    What was the effect on the brainwashed during the late 1960s to the mid !970s?

    I think I'll start a thread.

    Who can forget the late 60s release of the "Truth book" and the 6-month bible study push. The END was too close to take a year or more to get baptized we were at the tippy tip of the end of this system!!!!! I would never graduate from high school, have kids, get married, or hold a job in this old system.

    To disagree verbally or by deed was to be shunned by family, friends, and the congregation. Buy or build a home? Have kids? = a whisper campaign.
