On numerous occasions on this site there have been discussion of the JW's drinking "kool aid"
if the Watchtower said to do so. I often laughed at this. However if there was an announcement
"after the Service meeting in 5 weeks there is going to be a special announcement that know one
dares to miss and that this information will be given to the entire worldwide organizatiion"
If this was reinforced for the next 5 weeks the anticipation would be tremendous. I have already
experienced this type of anticipation several times. On one occasion there was a special
program on a Saturday night at an auditorium and 4 congregations were invited. This was around
1973. The place was packed and the place was abuzz. Only for one reason. Everyone thought
that there was going to be some information about when Armegeddon was going to start.
Instead there was only information about facts and details about the growth rate around the
world and how the organization has Jehovah's blessings. Everyone went home with a
trimendous emotional let know bordering on depression. Well getting back to the thought
of Kool Aid today. I can gurantee you that the Halls would be packed at the end of the 5 weeks
when the special announcement is made. If it was said "Brothers and Sisters, the FDS wants
us to know that the Great Tribulation is going to break out on Sunday December 2, 2007.
The have informed us that it is going to be a horrific thing to witness as Jehovah vents his
anger at the nations. Jehovah has told us that as an act of kindness that he wants all
of the weak and infirm and children to drink the solutiion on December 1, 2007
that we will pass out after the meeting. This solution will let them pass away so as not to experience the
pain and anguish and to be resurrected to a perfert paradise earth. Have many Witnesses
would actually go thru with this and drink the kool aid? I would guess about 40%. What do you think?
