And! Interestingly, these very words were said to me when I attended a JW funeral a few years back. A few people were asking me, "So what hall are in you now..?" and various similar questions (they always need to check your status, don't they??)
And it was so gratifying, so wonderful, to say almost casually, offhand: "Do you know, I'm not really sure... We haven't been to meetings for quite a while and I'm sure the boundaries have changed by now..."
And then to watch the expression on their face change, and then to hear those ridiculous words: "Not going to meetings! But you must go to meetings or you will die at Armageddon!!" THREE different people told me that at this one funeral.
I thought to myself, "Is that all you've got? Is that really supposed to encourage me to come back? Threats of death and destruction?" I just sort of smiled and said, "Well, it was nice seeing you again, take care." and walked away. They have no power over me any more. They are as deluded as I once was, and it is *good* to be out and away from it.
