    Which version, public or secret?

    For 50 plus years the masthead of the Watchtower ,viewed when you opened up to the inside front cover would read as follows:

    "This magazine(Watchtower) builds up confidence in the Creators PROMISE of a peaceful and secure *new world* before the generation *that witnessed" the EVENTS OF 1914 passes away*.
    By their own admission the Watchtowers has published this dogma in hundreds of millions of pieces of their own literature.

    They deleted this false adventist millerite derived prophecy in 1995 because it had FAILED.

    The importance of "No other magazine comes close" is a delusion to the WBTS.

    Nobody cares about the "Watchtower." Millions are sitting in people's garages and closets or have been tossed in the trash.

    Afterall, it is a printing company. Just a printing company of literature read and acquired mostly only by their members. Do the math...millions put in the bin.

    An outstanding accomplishment WBTS, truly.

    It might be that the YouTube video is an experiment on the part of the WTS to reach a wider audience. It must be clear to them that the door-to-door canvassing is now subject to the law of diminishing returns. They are finding fewer people at home in developed nations and that means fewer home bible studies and baptisms. Perhaps they want to see how many hits the video receives and if there is a corresponding rise in interest in JW products.

    If there is an increase, then they will trumpet the development as evidence of Jehovah’s blessing. If not, nothing will be said to the rank-and-file about the experiment and the entire effort will be quietly shelved. If the video is removed, then it can all be attributed to an attack by Satan against theocratic interests, if the removal is mentioned in official circles and organs at all.

    Just a clarification, the "creator's promise" blurb was found in the Awake, not the Watchtower.

    Is there new light? I thought they said that sufing the internet and interacting on social websites was dangerous for true christians...

    Our magazines are s-o-o wonderful that we have been cutting back and are continuing to cut back both on seperate issues (bi-weekly to monthly) and total pages. Praise Jah, we are saving the forests.

    Now they need to redo the video with the same people and the same timeline, except replace the circulation counter with quotes about the imminence of Armageddon/end times and have the folks look at their watches rather than hold up mags.

    It sounds like I'm listening to an apple commercial. It could just as well showcase all the iPods over the years.

    It is totally a rip off of apple's style of commerical.
