DONNY- Amazing. The guy at your work sounded REALLY confused describing the alleged " generation overlap " theory. These witnesses are so gullible to believe in something they can't even understand. If there is a God- I'm sure he is not THAT deep and hard to understand. LOL !
CULT CLASSIC- I understand you being upset about this generation change. I feel that way also. My whole JW family has been duped into believing constantly changing definitions of generation - based on what ? Just a magazine printing company's theory's . Nothing more. A magazine printing company who wants to control our relatives and their money.
DJEGGNOG- I think you've perhaps spiked your eggnog with pretty stout whiskey my friend ! Trying to say that the WT society has the RIGHT to change definitions of what a generation REALLY is - is like saying that cows really jumped over the moon , that it was real. In ANY dictionary it will tell you that a generation lasts 20 to 30 years or so- from the time we are born until we start having children ourselves. Jesus did NOT say " These generations " will not pass away- he said " this generation " in the singular- NOT plural. So you are gravely mistaken in misinterpreting and going along being duped by the WT society's misleading definitions describing what constitutes a " generation ".
You stated that " The beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses are progressive, and have never been static. " Oh really ? To me it sounds like with this new generation " theory " their beliefs are REGRESSIVE or going backwards, backpedaling to cover the WT society's unfulfilled expectations to keep people hooked into their con game longer. When I read your jumbled up attempt at describing this " generation " theory- all I was hearing was STATIC. I think you are being duped and misled is all I'm telling you
