    You are correct, and very few know the history. This is what I had on it. It is cross referenced in Proclaimers Book so not completely obscured...

    A public talk titled "The World Has Ended; Millions Now Living May Never Die" was first delivered on February 24, 1918 in Los Angeles, California. Just five weeks later, on March 31, 1918 the title was changed to indicate absolute certainty and the word "May" was substituted by the word "Will". So the new title became "The World Has Ended; Millions Now Living Will Never Die." The public talk continued to be delivered under that same title until 1925. The material in that talk was published in 1920. For decades Jehovah's Witnesses believed that they would never die in this system and that they would simply pass on into a righteous new earth. Now, of course, that belief has been dropped and it is considered "old light."

    The Watchtower has an uncanny way of pissing off their own god of pistoffness.... it comes from Isaiah 28:17,18.

    Were there "Millions" of "Bible Students" at that time or was the "present truth" that non-members would survive Armageddon, too?

    So is there any bible scripture at all that this phrase comes from?

    uh...Outlaw, the smaller version was already posted.

    What I find intriguing is that under the sign that says "Millions now living will never die"

    it says "IT'S A FACT"

    So, if WT has claimed that "it is a fact" then should there not be some supporting evidence? even a twisted scripture? where are the alleged 'facts' in this case?

    Does "fact" mean having proof or evidence or does 'fact' simply mean a belief without substantiation?

    The more proper way to put it would have been Millions now alive will never really live.
