As ridiculous as it seems to me and most of you, the infamous 'generation' update has every JW that I know in a tizzy. They're all worked up about how 'exciting' it all is. I just received a letter from my mom (she only communicates through letters now), and she brought it up - how they carefully explained it at the convention, and how it shows that we are so close to the end.
Unbelievable. The GB and whoever else had a hand in pushing this through must be so pleased with themselves.
I guess in one way it makes sense that so many are excited - the 1994 change was so difficult for so many because it pushed armageddon off indefinitely, especially with the recent increase in memorial partakers. This change has the appearance of setting a time limit, just like the old days. Unlike the old days, however, the GB has left themselves a way out (which has been discussed at length on other threads).
Just my incredulous .02
