Thank you all for adding additional "meat in due season" to the pottage I sod ( Genesis 25:29 KJV) .
Yes, poor dead Roger was a faithful witness most of his life, taught in the ways of Jah by his surviving and grief-stricken mother.
According to the WTB&TS he was a "true Christian." According to the WTB&TS this means he had one of two hopes: heavenly or "great crowd" of Tribulation survivors.
But now poor Roger finds himself demoted to the hoi polloi (greek: "the many"): those who might be resurrected.
Roger lived and died thinking he had a ticket to the tribulation. Sorry, Roger. No rainchecks, no refunds. No soup for you!
