Yesterday's Watchtower study appears to have revealed a little
bit of new light.
There is a scripture in Psalm 91:7,8 that speaks about 1000's falling
at your side. You may be familiar with the scripture, since a song
is based on it.
The last meaningful reference that I could find on this scripture was
from the 1975 WT. At that time, the application was that this
referred to those killed at Armageddon.
It now appears to refer to those who fall away from the truth. So,
yet another scripture gets relegated to the dustbin of figurativeness.
If this keeps up, there will be no literal beliefs left. Maybe Armageddon
itself will soon be spiritual. In fact, maybe it's already happened.
