Agreed. I think some people are really burying their real gut feelings and reactions to say how great everything is. My wife is no longer saying any of it is good.
I speculate there is a couple things happening, one i call the bubble. That there are a lot of people not liking it but staying strong, but one day a big bubble is going to pop and flood of people are gonna leave or just stop attending. The potential is there. There is an undercurrent of people waking up even if only in their personal thoughts and feelings.
The other is a butterfly effect. Its:
the amount and availability of information on the internet.
its the more visible irrefutable sources of anti witness info (such as the ARC).
Its history and science making the bible out to be a huge lie.
Its the seemingly consistent, decent witnesses waking up, talking to family, changing habits, talking to elders.
All these things I think are building a snowball.
The religion will never go away, but if over the next few years there is a massive shift, division, or exodus.. I'd call that a win. I believe they have hit their apex.
