we are all familiar with the story of the god jehovah saving jerusalem from the assyrians by sending and angel that killed 185000 soldier's.
well heradodus a 5 century bce historian related a story he heard from egyptian priests.
they told him that the god ptah sent rats into the camp of the assyrians which ate the bow strings of the troops and they then left in dismay, saving egypt.

anyway, i know a lot of people here, just about everyone in fact, knows that the watchtower claims to be the faithful and discreet slave.
now any sensible christian knows jesus was speaking metaphorically.
a parable if you will.

newest watchtower revelations from heaven indicate the importance of color in teaching the truth about god.. the governing body has prayed fervently over this new teaching and jehovah's witnesses the world around receive it gratefully as "food at the proper time".. in view of the importance placed on color, as found in god's holy word the bible, the governing body has deemed it necessary for a new understanding on important spiritual matters.
(see link).... http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200001009?q=color&p=par.
we can see from the aforementioned information that color in the scriptures should not be neglected, as it plays a vital role in understanding god's plan for mankind.

every religious group know the story of adam & eve.
for me, i understood what they did was wrong but i never felt they were bad people and considering that they never murdered anyone and seemed to live normal lives after being kicked out, i found it hard to accept that they deserved to die forever and that we would be responsible for suffering for their mistakes.
i personally feel like i might have done the same thing adam did when eve offered him the fruit.

the kingdom of god is already begun, which is pointed out in prophecy as due to begin the exercise of power in a.d. 1878, and that the "battle of the great day of god almighty" which will end in 1914 with the complete overthrow of the earth's present rulership, is already commenced.. i just did the math....and russell was right.
christ returned invisibly in 1874 and took rulership (restored kingdom reign) in 1878.. 2520 years minus 607 when jerusalem was destroyed = 1913 (accounting for no year zero) = 1914. that`s 2520 - 607 = 2014. but wait, that`s 2520 prophetic years of 360 days, not solar days of 365.25 days.
to convert to solar days then one must multuiply 2520 x 365.25 which gives us 2,484 actual years.

3:1 then the word of the lord came to jonah a second time: 2 “go to the great city of nineveh and proclaim to it the message i give you.”3 jonah obeyed the word of the lord and went to nineveh.
now nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it.
4 jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “forty more days and nineveh will be overthrown.” 5 the ninevites believed god.
