The article is a train wreck.
The Bible does not reveal exactly when it started. It was some time after the creation
of Adam’s wife, Eve, about 6,000 years ago.
The Bible used to reveal this, back before 1975, because the Watchtower told us so. Then it magically changed one day and stopped revealing it.
Ahead of us lies the Thousand Year Reign of Jesus Christ, which will ensure the fulfillment of God’s purpose
in creating the earth to be an everlasting paradise filled with perfect mankind. (Gen. 1:27, 28; Rev. 20:6)
Now it is the Nine Hundred Year Reign of Jesus Christ ahead of us, since it allegedly started in 1914.
Can you be sure that you will have such a hap-py future? Indeed you can!
I have never had a JW ever tell me they were sure they would have that future, but always would qualify it by saying they hope they would if they endure to the end, or that they have a PROSPECT of being in paradise.
Perfect creatures who love God and imitate him do not need to make an oath; they always tell
the truth and have complete trust in one another. But things changed with
the introduction of human sin and im-perfection.
This statement lacks logical consistency. The perfect creatures are supposed to be Adam and Eve. But notice how the writing changes to passive voice when referring to "the introduction of human sin and imperfection". This is a sly way to get you to avoid the obvious question, which is how a perfect creature could introduce imperfection. This is another Watchtower fiction.
Because of rejecting Jesus Christ, the nation of Israel finally lost their fa-vored status with God along with the
prospect of ever becoming “a king-dom of priests.” As Jesus told the Jewish leaders: “The kingdom of God will
be taken from you...
Another dose of the usual Watchtower antisemitism.
Unlike natural Israel, God’s new spiritual nation has kept on bearing
good fruit by its continual obedience to God.
This contradicts the story that is currently toggled into place (there has always been a slave/the slave had fallen into captivity and needed restoration) since the slave was only appointed in 1919. Of course, next month this could be old light and this passage would be okay.
This spiritual food is horribly rancid.
If I ever find a hard copy of this, I will have to whip out my pen and mark it up.
