    Yup, Crazyguy...

    Trussell it seems was right after all...

    Oh, the depth of the darkness that envelops those who dare to stop reading Trussell's "Studies in the Scriptures"...

    And then there are millions like myself who have never read a single page of these books - the finest ever written...

    biblexaminer - "... I still wanted to believe that the Org was the place to be."

    I remember that feeling.

    Prior to my fade, I had reached a point where I was actively (and retrospectively, in quiet desperation) looking for something - anything - that would still prove the WTS was right...

    ...and every chain of evidence or reasoning was still leading to the opposite conclusion.

    I - as you said - wanted to believe that the Org was the place to be... until I was honest with myself, and realized why I felt that way.

    It wasn't because I wanted "the Truth" to be true, it was because I was afraid of not being in "the Truth"...

    ...i.e., my own sense of personal integrity (and - ironically - the Org's own stated standards) would require that I leave the JWs, which I knew would make life considerably more difficult for me.

    Vidiot: How would you say your life was " considerably more difficult " ?
