Azaria, that is powerful insight! So many people never get there, with whatever it is they are struggleing with.

This is quite case; you are not imagining things and are not alone. Due to the way that Dubz indoctrinate the followers and the "Sagans" of meetings attended (a Sagan is a unit of measurement: "BIL-YUNZ & BIL-YUNZ"), many of the Dub adherents "go on autopilot" and react with some scripture, fragment of a scripture or Dubz-related platitude. Typical are these:
"?you have to do more?"
"?you have to go to meetings?"
"?you won?t get life?"
"?where will you go?"
This is especially the case with our parents, who may have been over-exposed to this indoctrination for decades. Their mind is numbed after a while.

Even if I was still a wittness full fledged I'd be shock!
