Wow.......just WOW. Imagine humour and those exact words/wording be used all around at different assemblies to make "light" of the "old understanding" of the 1914 Generational teaching? I am FLOORED. This is a slap to the face of the elderly, long-suffering Witnesses who have lived thru so much. And for those of us who lived thru the 1980's and being scared and told that the generation of 1914 absolutely, possitively, would not die until "The End" came, and that it was SOON, Any Day Now....IMMINENT.....we were so lied to and conned......I am sick, just sick from hearing this. I can hardly believe they would backstep like this, and to top it all off...make it sound "funny" or humourous in order to brush off the "old understanding".
It's hearing things like this that make me absolutely, 100% certain that I did the right thing by starting my research at age 19 in 1999, and then leaving. The JW's have now totally lost any trust from an entire generation of youth. Who would believe them? What a sack of liars they are.......my entire youth was wasted for a LIE, and these condescending users have the nerve to joke about it as if it were nothing? Cold, heartless, cruel, money-grubbing bastards.
Truly, these are wolves in sheeps clothing, sent to deceive and mislead the Christian flock, just as Jesus foretold. Amazing that they still proclaim to have the one and only "Truth".
