    The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be concluded in our 20th century.

    Say it ain't so, a WTBTS prediction being wrong? It's the end of the world as we know it!

    Now, if someone would post the 'altered' version that appears on the CD Rom, we might be onto something!

    Yep. This article is the reason why my JW brother is no longer speaking with me. The WTS changed it to "our day" on the cd that he looked it up on. Then I sent him a copy of the original.

    Was that here I heard this or H20?

    Watchtower revisionism and denials? I'm shocked - NOT!

    That is why I don't turn in field service reports any more. They promised that this work would all be over by now.
