I was always taught the following:
Watchtower, 7/1/69 pg395:
“People who were only just old enough to understand what was happening to the world in 1914 are now approaching seventy years of age. Yes, the numbers of that generation are dwindling fast, but before they all pass away this system must meet its end in the war of Armageddon.”
I now understand this is not the case. There is "new light".
Can someone elaborate?
