First, I must admit that I grew UP believing it, as a Catholic.
Never questioning it- yet COMPLETELY CONVINCED!
Then JWs came to my door!
I talked down to them bragging about my Church! I was a 100% churchoid!
(One who worships Church rather than God)
But they kept haunting me by saying something like "Mike, it doesn't matter what you think, or what we think- but what God SAYS! And THIS is what He said at-", and off into the Bible we went!
I prayed in desperation for help proving them wrong- asking friends, neighbors, and family for help in doing so. Even reading anti-JW books and church flyers!
NONE of it helped!
My Beloved Fantasy was fading quickly!
