    I seem to also remember a KM that made a statement of 'Months NOT years' left in this system. Can someone provide that quote if my memory is correct?

    That was WT 15 Aug, 1968, P499, Para 30

    After lots of weasel words to get themselves some wiggle room they said, "It may involve only a difference of weeks or months, not years."

    This Thread has to be put into the "All Time Greatest' archive!

    "Weasel words" is right, BlackSheep. I suspect ConcernedJW is realizing this, which may explain his absence.

    You know, in the WTBTS's defense, the term "last days" is just a bit vague since it allows for a broad range of interpretation (as to be expected of an empty prophecy). If only CJW would start at the source of the problem, he'd save himself a lot of time and frustration trying to figure all this out.

    Is ConcernedJW the poster formerly known as Reniaa? This thread is feeling very deja vu-ish?

    No occult avatar or copy and paste in evidence, so either she's getting smarter, or we just have have another one who can't follow simple rules.

    JWs often try to wiggle out of their prediction difficulties by saying that the WT didn't set dates and asking for proof they did.

    This puts anyone who made claims that they did on the back foot as there are bugger all concrete statements to produce.

    The thing is Concerned JW, that what the WT did do was set a lot of time frames in which these predictions would occur.

    It takes a real leap of faith to think that John and Eunice from the 1941 book, Children, did the right thing, and that anything predicted in the book hasn't outlived the time frames provided in it.

    Look at the May 1975 OKM example too. How many of those brothers who were being praised are still pioneering on the proceeds of the sales of their homes.

    How long did Adam take to name the animals? Kids my age wouldn't have time to fulfill a career? What a joke. The Awake cover with pics of the generation that would never die is now a memorial to dead people. There are numerous examples to choose from over the decades.

    If your door knocking results in kids missing out on education and even having their relationships with their families wrecked, then Jehovah displays his disinterest in supporting the WT by not showing up to stop them looking like a bunch of fools ..... as usual ....... who is to blame for the damage to them?

    I'm up tp page four of theses excellent comments and wanted to say that I agree with Sweet Baby Cheezits 100%. Thank you for these quotes from wt literature.

    The quote from g68 10/8 says it all:

    " Missing from such people were truths and the evidence he was guiding and using them."

    The wts own words in their own literature prove that God is NOT using them and that they do NOT have the truth.

    Again from page 4- thank you punkofnice and sizemik!

    This was a very interesting thread.

    But its too bad Interested One did not get his question answered by CJW.

    I guess that is not too suprising.

    Here we are on page 8, an entire thread dedicated to CJW pointing out even a single mistake, and we've seen him dance to the left, dance to the right, but even after 8 pages he is still not able to point out a mistake.

    CJW please realize that this is your blind spot. You are not able to point out a mistake, not even one, even though you admit they were made. Why not? Why can't you do that? Is it because you are under mind control?
