    We may not all live near an active volcano. Yet, what if we were facing a global catastrophe, putting all of us in a danger zone encompassing the entire globe? A book that has proved to be a reliable source of prophetic information warns us of a coming worldwide disaster and describes it this way:

    And here I thought ths would be a fine time to plug the Revelation book in here. go figure

    LDH, I wish you would say more!

    I'm sure it's a good one but is not showing up.

    That looks like something you'd see on some bad ol' fundie christendum site only in numbing JWPentameter

    Yeah, I'm not geting anything but a blank, white square using both Firefox and Internet Explorer. No pictures or text.

    Oops! It does say "appeared in WT February 15, 2000" in red type about halfway down. But that's all.

    The prophet Zephaniah says: "The great day of Jehovah is near. It is near, and there is a hurrying of it very much. . . . By the fire of his zeal the whole earth will be devoured, because he will make an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth." Although "neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in the day of Jehovah's fury," there is a way to survive that fear-inspiring day.-Zephaniah 1:14-18.
    That was written 2,500 years ago.

    Closer to 2600 actually!!

    Zephaniah's prophecy was finally fulfilled when the Babylonians overtook Judah.

    There's a shade of apocalyptic in Zephaniah's writing but again the WTS has their "types™" and "antitypes™" and "greater fulfillment™" and all that.

    Even so, there's nothing to imply the urgency that the WT is claiming anyway.

    The only "danger zone" is being associated with the WT!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the point of LDH's quote was to show there was no substance to the whole article.

    But that's all?!?!?!?

    Hello people the article itself was written six years ago. So six more years for JW to stay pantingly and tantalizingly close to the end of the system with the end so close. *yawn* Six years doesn't seem like a long time, unless you're hanging on the edge of your seat for the entire time.

    ps, I like the way for dramatic element the article refers to a tragedy in Japan while showing a picture of the Japanese "brothers and sisters".... LOL

    The message is clear. You Japs are falling asleep on the job, what happened to all the extraordinary zeal you showed in the 80's and 90's?????

    Don't tell me you're getting bored too?!?!?!?!


    You missed the obvious! Class
