Thank you Iron Claw, MerryMagdalene, and Kaput for searching the SURVIVAL book and finding those quotations.
Even after extensive searching I still have not found the original posting here at JWD where I first read the quotes, and that was only a few days ago! The moral is this, if you find something, bookmark it right away!
If anyone who posted on that original thread that mentioned the "SURVIVAL INTO A NEW EARTH" book, please post a link to it, or at least mention that you contributed to it. It is somewhat bothersome to not be able to find it again.
The SURVIVAL book quotes about how the 1914 generation are interesting as they are so confident about the meaning of Mark 13:30 in that the generation that "will not pass away" is the 1914 generation.
Great confidence was placed in the nearness to the end because of what Jesus said. But today, the generation that will not pass away is no longer the 1914 generation, but basically whatever generation was alive that saw the signs.
Jesus's words have not changed, only the meaning ascribed to the word "generation" by The Watchtower. The discarding of the confident statements in this 1984 book indicate quite clearly that The Watchtower did not know what it was talking about. But then, when has it?
