OBVES - I read those scriptures. What are they to do with JWs? Yes I understand that the JWs (like every other Christian group) like to insert themselves into the circular argument of scripture but you are compelled to admit - scripturally - that since no-one knows when the Second Coming is due that the JWs are just as likely to be at the wrong time in history anyway. Obves you are just wrong.
People have been trying to claim that their age is the 'last days' ever since the story of Jesus records his lie about coming again in the Disciples generation. There is nothing, zip, zilch special about this century no matter how many mathematical games you play (will you make your god a liar - he told you no one would know, not that he'd hidden a rather clever code revealing the date in pyramid inches and some oddball dreams in Daniel.) Stop mucking around with make believe numbers , mangling language ( a day is a day!) The JWs are not delivering any kind of acceptable meat to any serious god (they are culpable for many, many deaths through needless lies and speculation over blood, innoculations, transplants and politics.)
If I was a god why on earth would I allow a handful of self-appointed people to represent me with naff little 6th grade, factually laughable and cheaply written tat. God is not recorded in any scripture as being a bit blase with his representatives and allowing them to say utter garbage and allowing them to change doctrine at will without any recourse to revelation. The ten commandments weren't corrected 50 years later because Moses was a bit zealous and wrote down the wrong thing. The Jehovah of the OT is a grandstander, a showman, jealous and passionate - he didn't just do a few tricks in Pharaoh's court - no old J did epic scale disasters just in case anyone didn't get the message. Sadly in preparation for the second greatest event of human history (allegedly) the best he can come up with (according to WT folklore) is delivering some coal and organising some pretty second rate overly long conventions. This is so pathetic that any decent angelic scribe would be ashamed to even write it up as a scriptural record.
Nope - God - when he has something to say apparently talks directly to prophets. He doesn't do freelance. He burns bushes, he writes on walls, stone slabs, he destroys first born sons the day after turning all the water to blood, he brings people back to life, he destroys people in bets with Satan, he kills people for mistakes made by long dead parents, he makes men mutilate themselves, he demands an unending supply of animal blood, he sends people to hell for daring to utter anything in his name that is inaccurate and he sends his worst disasters upon his own people.
JWs do not even come close to having any part in that little fiction. You've suffered nothing in comparison to his original people, you've done nothing but be mediocre and your stupid enough to claim you've been chosen without any reason or evidence other than you think your right. Welcome to the human condition. Please stop killing children.
