    " How do Jehovah's Witnesses arrive at their explanation of the bible ?

    " A key factor is that the witnesses really believe that the Bible is God's word and that what it contains is there for our instruction."_________Reasoning of the scriptures book page 204

    " As for fullfillment of prophecy, they apply what Jesus said about being alert to events that correspond to what was foretold. Conscientously they point out those events and draw attention to what the Bible indicate they mean."________Reasoning of the scriptures book page205

    " Bible chronology also pinpointed in advance the time when certain important events in the fullfilment of God's purpose would take place "______Reasoning from the scriptures book page 93 under the definition of Dates

    " What beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses set them apart as different from other religions?

    # ( 8 ) " Some who saw the events of 1914 will also see the complete destruction of the present wicked world"________Reasoning from the scriptures book page 200

    Ooops , maybe it's an overlappin' generation

    " It is true that the witnesses have made mistakes in their understanding of what would occur at the end of certain time periods, "_________Reasoning of the scriptures book page 136

    seems to me the only new light being past out at the conventions are from candles

    Prophecies unfullfilled are called FALSE

    Wasblind ....... great analogy!

    That's it really, ... don't think, you don't need school, only associate with people who "don't think" just like you don't think, follow us, don't listen to anybody else ............. now take your little candle & stay in your room!

    It makes perfect sense Wasblind, but then JWs can't compute that "mother" might have been lying to them-

    The WTBT$ constantly self-condemns, it's just that most witlesses aren't really listening.

    Candles? I think they are more like those ancient LEDs you may have remembered from the 1960s before we had the big high-power LEDs of today. Downright pathetic.

    The JWS religion has just as many BS doctrines supporting itself as other religions do, but try telling that to a JWS.

    The biggest piece of BS the WTS. ever came up with is Christ's return and the supposed End Times/Great Tribulation/Armageddon doctrine.

    But it was the most single doctrine that created the most sales for their literature as well lure the most of its devoted adherents.
