If you've been following my posts here, I am physically in and mentally out. It's so hard because I wish that my family could wake up just as easily as I did. The other day I had a conversation with a relative regarding whether they have come to terms with their own mortality and they replied that they try not to think about it too much but also said that it's possible that Armageddon would even happen long after they are gone, which I thought was a very interesting thought.
Maybe it's just me, but I feel like what made me wake up easily was that I've always had little doubts here and there but this was stuff like me being unable to grasp the concept of how one could be anointed and how would you know if you were. Things like that, just very confusing to me; I was always asking questions. But see my family, they are satisfied with what they know, what they call "the Truth", even if it's half true or half false.
Personally my parents are in their 50's now and I can't help but question myself "Should I even try to help them wake up? This would rock their entire world, they've devoted the majority of their lives to these beliefs. Their social circle is this, this is their life. What good could I be doing if I were to tear that down? Could they even handle it properly that what they consider truth isn't entirely true?" Sometimes I honestly think it's better off that they don't because I don't know how they would handle it, I can imagine it must be very difficult, especially to be up in age. I mean imagine being 74 years old and waking up?
In the past I've made attempts to speak to them about many things like blood transfusions and the whole 587 vs 607, etc. But these discussions end in arguments, I don't want this to affect their health. Have any of you been successful at waking up any family members, including your parents? Are you someone who woke up a little later in life? How'd you react? Should I make further attempts at waking up my family members or should I just let it be?
My mother quotes Simon Peter from the Bible where he asks Jesus in John 6:68“Lord, whom shall we go away to?+ You have sayings of everlasting life."
and it's that argument that really shows me what this really means to them. And it's sad because these are people I love and care about, my own parents, all my family members. And I believe firmly that with and without all the indoctrination, they are genuinely good hearted people with good intentions even though it may come off as wrong sometimes. Thoughts?
Edit: I apologize for how long this had to be
