As an Ex JW now, how would you react if you met your Bible study conductor?
I wouldn't bother to try to rock his boat, but if I thought it could-
"They DID say the world was going to end in 1975 and various points before that. They DID say it certainly would end in the 20th century and CERTAINLY before the 1914 generation passed away. You were WRONG WRONG WRONG."
I am no longer a witness and have net my Bible instructor and he too is no longer a witness, good things do happen.
He's getting old and just lost a daughter recently, but his reputation was as a hard man . When I left JWs I wasn't living near him but I visit his area are town every 3 months. If he pressed the issue of spirituality the I would just tell him I'm a apostate. They know what that means .
