    Interesting phrase.

    There was one exception. In 1940, Hayden C. Covington—then the Society’s legal counsel and one of the “other sheep,” with the earthly hope—was elected a director of the Society. (John 10:16) He served as the Society’s vice president from 1942 to 1945. At that time, Brother Covington stepped aside as a director to comply with what then seemed to be Jehovah’s will—that all directors and officers of the Pennsylvania corporation be anointed Christians.

    That was way back then when they probably believed in their own bunk.

    Sounds like an expression they could use now to excuse past incorrect teachings!

    "the faithful looked forward to the end of the 20th century, as it would mark the end of the system, with what seemed to be Jehovahs will"
