    ...but since neither of these long-lived ladies were Witnesses, Jehovah would have destroyed them anyway.

    May they rest in peace.

    They are all going slowly but surely. In UK the last 2 solidiers who fought in WW1 died last year.

    On a brighter note the annointed numbers went up this year and the GB members are getting younger, it's all smoke and mirrors.

  • IMHO

    Don't know about that.

    Apparantly there are around 450,000 people in the world over 100 years old.

    That includes 72,000 in the US and 9000 in the UK.

    Remember when they used to say, the generation would have to be old enough to realize the events of 1914? Meaning they would have to been born around 1900.

    New next light about 'the generation' coming....

    The current GB are just a reincarnated form of long past dead ones. Sort of a composite one that recycles and regenerates itself, while never ending, like in the terminator movie.

    In 4 years it will be 2014, 100 years since 1914 and the generation that WILL NOT die.

    Yep, new light is just around the corner.

  • LostGeneration

    Wasn't Ann Nixon Cooper the one rumored to be a JW?

  • thetrueone

    Haven't they already covered themselves by instituting a new policy recently regarding who witnessed those who

    witnessed the events of 1914 ?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

  • dissed

    New Generation light = New WTS spin on 1914

    Come on GB!! You can spin better than that. No one is buying it.

  • dmouse

    That's old light betterdaze, the term 'generation' now means The Anointed living before the end (and the 1935 closing has been rescinded)

    This group is now self-perpetuating so is effectively null and void for predicting how long to Armageddon.

    Forget about 1914, it's a temporary embarrassment - most JWs in 30-40 years time won't know anything about it.

  • thetrueone

    Is it a juggling act or is it a slight of hand trick ?

    The Anointed living before the end

    if that is the new light policy, then what they have created for themselves is state of perpetual infinity

    being that there is always going to be a nut case saying they are of the anointed class.

    I'd assume they know that these new light policies do and will cause people to fade away

    but at least they put something on the table to keep them liquid with support.

    If one piece of bullshit loses its usefulness , you just have to create something else.
