According the WT, how many “comings” or “returns” of Christ are there? And the follow-up question is: How many “comings” of Christ are actually indicated in the Scriptures? (Yes, we can debate for days, needlessly, concerning the 1914-calculus, but the “truth” is so much simpler than this! It really is!)
If you’re struggling to reason with your family members about your issues with the WT, I believe the most important question to raise is: how many “returns” does Christ have according to the WT? And then, the same question, but according to the Scriptures? The Biblical expression of Jesus is: “it will come at a time you think it not to be,” with the WT’s explanation that they’ve calculated his "return" or "coming" in 1914, but the “time” “we don’t know” is his final “coming” in judgment, another “coming!” (Good grief!)
So, what don’t we know “the day and how of?” An email, sent to me from a “sister” many years ago, quoted a GB member, saying: “Christ “comes” many times! Up to 7 times!” “He ‘comes’ and ‘comes’ and ‘comes’ again, up to 7 times!” (Really?)
Needless to say, if we get our families and friends to think about the WT’s position, and what the Bible really, really, really, really teaches, we might be able to help them make a happy exit out of the insanity!
What's your opinion? Is this a good reasoning-point?
