Years ago I got a small tract from one man in New York City in which a lot information was given about Jehovah's Witnesses who are they .
And I read all sorts of attacks on them . The predictions were given and how many Jehovah's Witnesses left the organization after the failed 1975 prediction.The number given was amazingly large .
Was it OK for so many people to leave the organization just because of the failed prediction? Absolutely not ! I myself had some predictions in the past and now I am so glad I stayed the same course and didn't turn to any organization and continued in making new predictions. My new views on many matters of the Bible uphold me fast and now I have another date 2011 AD as the next prediction .
In no way any failed prediction for a person who has sound views based on the Bible can be a reason for changing a religion.
The hordes that left the Jehovahs Witness organization did not understand that they would be jumping from the frying pan into the fire !
These days it became obvious by Obves that Jehovah's Witnesses are in the best situation from all known christian organizations as they are covered by God's plan in the end-time salvation plan.
The dates like 1879 AD, 1884 AD,1914 AD are in favor of their predecessors : the International Bible Students . Since Jehovah's Witnesses continue their work - like by using the same name " watchtower " which is essential to the cause of salvation - they are in a very convenient situation that makes them distinctive and decisively the best from all the existing christian churches.
The unity must be strictly observed in view of so much animosity around them. Just imagine what was being done in the Red Russia when the red revolution won there and there were many enemies . Stalin killed off millions of them to keep the unity of the new-born state.
The Watchtower doesn't kill anyone ,however, though their enemies deserve the harshest penalty as they try to undermine the unity of the organization God Yahweh approves of and which must survive facing enemies from all sides , even from within.
The folks that left organization of Jehovah's Witnesses lacked the right understanding that is now being available as we are in the final years of the present world order of things. The Watchtower may not have the right explanation at that time and that could contribute immensely to so many leaving .
The example is the date 1914 AD which some claim the Watchtower is downplaying . If that is true they would be making a cardinal mistake as the date 1914 AD testifies in favor of them ! The date is as valid as ever ! It is the basic date that points to the International Bible Students as the right organization with God Yahweh and if Jehovah's Witnesses are their legitimate successors they too must be in good standing with the Creator.
