This is all in line with information I learned through listening to podcast interviews with former JWs. It's amazing to me that grown people can hold these beliefs, especially with information so readily available. I can understand someone 50 years ago or more who was raised in it. But in 2013 when you can just Google the information from your pocket it seems ludicrous for any rational person to accept these things on faith.<quoted text>
Oh yeah, the JWs definitely think they will go full blown Twilight after Armageddon. Perfect humans in perfect bodies cleaning up billions of dead bodies after God gets done killing them. They believe that Satan will be bound for a 1000 years and during that time no one dies. After the 1000 years Satan is released to give everyone one final test then God kills Satan and all those that followed him.
JWFacts is correct on the whole flip flopping belief on who can marry, have sex and all that crap who are resurrected. I never gave it much thought because I figured God would destroy me for leaving that cult. They had me pretty brainwashed by the time I turned 18 and was allowed to move out from my parents.
One thing that strikes me, in listening to various interviews, you find that some of these people were doing the door-to-door thing and they were basically atheists. One guy said he literally *never* believed it once he passed about 8 or 9 years old. Yet that was his family, so he did what he was told. He was doing the door knocking as a young man trying to sell people an idea that he himself did not believe.
It makes you wonder how many people involved in these various sects are doing it out of habit or necessity rather than any kind of actual faith.
