You are giving them false hope. Yes, but False Hope is better than no Hope.
Mormonism has given us false hope or at least false certainty. But false hope feels better than no hope. But getting rid of false hope now is a blessing, because we know we need to find true hope and have the opportunity to seek it now. The other thing that has become clear is that how much my testimony always was borrowed and has actually been somebody else's testimony. That deficit needs to be addressed now before it is too late.
