Yes, it's official! In the New System Jehovah's Witnesses will still have to attend the terrible meetings for all eternity!!!!!!
The Watchtower, November 1st, page 31, para 16:
'Isaiah 66:23 will fully apply to life in Jehovah's promised new world. At that time, 'all flesh will,' in a literal sense, week by week and month by month, 'come into bow down before,' or worship, Jehovah throughout eternity. Since meeting together to worship Jehovah will be a permanent feature of our spiritual lives in the new system of things, should we not make regular attendance at our sacred gatherings a permanent feature of our lives now?'
'As the end draw near, we should be more determined than ever to attend our Christian gatherings for worship... Out of respect for the sacred nature of our meetings, we do not allow secular work, school homework, or evening schooling to cause us to miss out on meeting regularly with our fellow believer. We need the strenth that comes through association.'
When a JW I had alway fantasised that in living forever there would be NO NEED for all those nightmare meetings. It seem the bOrg has different ideas.
