Why did Suiter, Klein and Schroeder try to change the generation date of 1914 to 1957?

    Well according to CoC......

    It was 1980, 75 had been a disaster.....1984 was being whispered by Gileads....

    So it was proposed that Matt 24:29-44 could be taken 'literally' with the space age begining in 1957.

    Keep in mind the end of the Gentile Times would remain 1914.

    Thusly it would add an 43 extra years to the WTS understanding........

    CoC pg 262 has a scan of the proposal.

    I think I would buy his book.

    I think it had something to do with the fact that 1957 was the year I was born. Or, perhaps the Sputnick.


    This was clearly a sign from heaven.

    Just shows there is NOTHING special about these guys, they are just men pretending to have a hotline to God & when their 'New Light' doesn't work out..... low & behold the 'hotline' rings & good ole Jah decides to string them (& us) along with even more tenuous, illogical nonsense.

    Just what part of "No one knows the day or the hour, not even the son of man" do they not understand? Idiots!

    Our visiting Public Speaker a few weeks ago said: "The Governing Body are in direct contact with Jehovah". And people actually believe this.

    Yes many JW's think this St George & the scammers in Brooklyn are more then happy to let them think this too.........helps keep up the delusion of their God given authority over the rank & file.

    I hope the leaders of the WBTS Borg will soon have their come uppence & be shown to be the charlatans they really are by the God they claim to worship!
