    Hi ya'll !

    Haven't been posting in a loooong time and perhaps this has already been discussed but I've heard that they're coming with a new understanding of the 144.000. That it should be taken symbolically and NOT literally!?

    I guess they have to change it since so many more apparently belongs to the anointed ones....

    Well I hope this will make a few of them think and leave.

    If that happens it could be the straw that breaks the camels back. I can't see it happening though - but then this is the WT$!

    Can anyone confirm this?

    it was mention, on a site same as this one, here in Sweden...not sure abt its accuracy though...

    Guess it would be major if it's true...

    op may be refering to the aug wt where they say the number of memorial partakers doesnt matter.

    I doubt they are ready to swing the door open further. As the latest WT talks about the partakers possibly being disturbed or mistaken from Christendom, I think they will just say that Jehovah knows who is anointed and basically, the only ones we can be sure of are on the Governing Body. "Just listen to the FDS on the Governing Body and you will be fine."

    no it does seem un-likely that they would dare to change this...

    English Standard Version (ESV)

    13 "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in. 15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.
