i was taking the wt when the new light re ressurection/sheep and goats came out a few years ago.
up to that point it had been believed that if someone died in the 20th century having been aware of jw teachings then they wouldnt get a ressurection..this was especially true of unbelieving spouses who would be judged as goats.
this wt however made the point that some spouses were unbelievers for yeasr and then suddenly became jws so if they had died in between they would not have had the oppurtunity plus the sheep and goats dont get identified until the great trib starts so the conclusion was death pays the penalty and therefore ressurection for all...heeeeey.
i remember while a paragraph was being read that it occured to me that the same principal would apply to df ones who might die before thay have the chance to repent/reinstate...and so i said so during the next paragraphs discussion...omg!!!! did i get into trouble for that - going beyond what was written etc etc
of more interest to a previous poster is the fact that in the ressurection no marraige mates will be together...but that doesnt stop jws using death of a spouse as a bargaining tool - 'dont you want to see your wife/husband again'

What about all the people who did not serve or obey Jehovah because they never knew about him? These billions of "unrighteous" ones will not be forgotten. They too will be resurrected and given time to learn about the true God and to serve him.
so they will get ressurected...but the billions who dont know about jehovah when armageddon strikes will get destroyed...hmmm
