LOL @ sacolton! I like it.
steve2... you and I think the same about the 'crying wolf' thing.
"We are closer than ever before." So I asked my Dad "Why is that?" He said "Because of the economic situation. Everything is bad."
I said "Really? Is it as bad as when the First and Second World Wars happened? How about the Great Depression, Dad? That lasted 10 years. Is it as bad as it was back then? Every decade sees at least one recession. Bad things have been occurring for thousands of years. How about the oil crisis in the 1970s?" Once again, the stunned silence.
I figure, the more the JWs say it's coming, the less it's going to arrive. I highly doubt God will allow anyone on the face of this Earth the ablity to say 'See? We told you so!'
