Same story, different century?
The World IS getting worse - and WILL be destoyed, SOON !!
IMHO, to me there is a big difference. The bible says nobody knows the day or the hour, that IS open ended. The JWs have used specific dates and impending doom warnings for their whole history to control people. They say they are spreading good news but it's really fear mongering, not good news when they are condeming 99.9% of earths population (everyone but them) to destruction.
