    How many of them have been fulfilled exactly as the Watchtower stated they would be?

    How many of them have actually come true?

    Based on your answers to the above questions does the Watchtower meet the criteria of a false prophet as outlined in Deuteronomy 18:18-22?

    Let me count... let's see..

    Well, 1874 is a no

    1914, not as they predicted

    1925, nope

    1975 nope

    by the end of the last century no

    So... yes they fit the scriptural reference of a false prophet in Deuteronomy and also the words of Jesus.

    Yes, they are false prophets as described by the bible.

    Actually Russell and Rutherford predicted the return of the Israelites to the land of Palestine. Israel did return and became a state in 1949. Too bad the WTS dropped this interpretation or they could claim some credibility.

    I asked my mother, a JW for over 60 years, this question and she said, "Christ comming in 1914"

    My JW SIL was there. She thinks the sun shines out of his bum. He backed me up on that one.

    Mum had the look of a stunned mullet. Dad kept out of it.

    The Ancient Worthies haven't returned yet here on earth...unless they reincarnated into something else....

    Not one prediction, speculation or uneducated guess has come true the way it was presented by the WTS.

    Credibility rate=zero.

    I can't think of any that they got completely right, and most of them have been way off, so yes, they do fit the bible description of a false prophet

    The rise of the League of Nations into the UN

    That one was predicted by Rutherfraud AFTER President F.D. Roosevelt made a public announcement to that effect.
