Greetings, earth-bound friends:
I guess at this point in life, given what we all now know, we no longer harbor any delusions of grandeur. My temporary insanity, which I've written about on other threads, was that assurance of being in heaven with Jehovah and Jesus and the other 143,999 kings and priests. As it ended up, that heavenly hope was quashed as quickly as it had welled up in my susceptible heart.
This happened at Bethel, circa 1970; however, if I had held on firmly to my convictions, I could have stayed on at Bethel, biding my time, and wound up a member of the Governing Body. As far as I know, there were no worries then about being mentally diseased or unbalanced. Lots of us young brothers were heaven bound. Many of us were SRs (self-righteous).
The heart attack I actually suffered three years ago could have taken place in Brooklyn and resulted in my death (probably induced by an untoward weight gain and sedentary lifestyle peculiar to us Guardians Of Doctrine). Since the Society has intimated that the 24 resurrected elders are directing their superior insights and theocratic directives toward Jehovah's people still on Earth, I can assure you that, today, things would be totally different in the organization, if I had any voice in heaven.
For one, <https://www.jehovahs-witness.com> would be the Society's official mouthpiece . . .
