For most of my life I was taught that everything we experience in our lives is a build up to the Great Day of Jehovah: Armageddon. I was informed, regularly, that this war would be when Jehovah finally gets his vengeance from his advasary the Devil. As Jehovah's Witnesses were were taught that war is the solution, so long as the kingdom set up afterwards is eternally prosperous. As a kid I always wondered: what assurance do I have that another question won't be raised after this one?
Doesn't this "war to end all wars" concept sound familar? Is that argument not what every dictator and tyrant in human history begins with? That was what was said about World War I and World War II. I remember reading Watchtower articles as a kid that mocked the people of history that called those wars "the war to end all wars."
But in reality that is just what the Bible promises through the Watchtower doctrine. War will solve our problems with the right commander. Of course the only spirit creatures we have knowledge that he created are already causing serious rebellion and require war.
War will never solve our problems permanently. War's only purpose is to clean the slate and figure out what went wrong the begin with. When this planet finally finds peace it will not be directly after a war and it surely will not be because of some utopian government, but that's what the Watchtower is eagerly anticipating... more of the same.
