" In my opinion, proclamations of truth have to be wieghed and compared to other so-called truths in order to indentify the pretenders. It has to be done according to a standard which in this case obviously would be the Bible "____Stand for pure.......
Case and point : When will the end of this wicked world will come?
WTS says : " Before the last members of the generation that was alive in 1914 will have passed off the scene, all things foretold will occur, including the "great tribulation" in which the present wicked world will end "____Reasoning book page 97
The Bible says : " It does not belong to you to get knowledge of the times or seasons which the father has placed in his own jurisdiction " ( Acts 1:7 ) Also " Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the son, but only the father " ( Matt. 24:36 )
who's the pretender ??????
" What also should be appropriate to consider when questioning whether or not the Bible students procured truth, one would have to examine what they were teaching "___Stand for pure.........
What did the Bible students teach ?
" As October 1914 approached, some Bible students expected that at the end of the Gentile times they, as spirit-anointed Christians, would recieve thier heavenly reward. Illustrating this is an incident that took place at a convention of the Bible students in Saratoga Springs, New york, September 27-30, 1914
A.H. Macmillan, who had been baptised 14 years earlier, gave a discourse on Wednesday, Sept 30. In it he stated: " This is probably the last public address I shall ever deliver becuase we shall be going home [to heaven] soon "
However, two days later ( on Friday , October 2 ), Macmillan came in for some good-natured teasing back in Brooklyn."_____Proclaimers book page 62 Grey box
100 years and still teasin'. LOL
" Now to keep it honest, is to say that the Bible students and the WTS have got it right all the time ? Absolutely not, of course they've made mistakes over the years, and likely will make more."_____Stand for pure........
You don't say !!!!!! and all his time we were told
" Thus what is taught is not from men but from Jehovah"____Sept 15, 2010 WT page 13 para 8
" However, what is noteworthy is thier willingness to adjust thier understanding when absolutely necessary."____Stand for pure.....
Truth changes; Explain that in a court of law
" Throughout the years we've aquired more torches of truth and have had to ocassionally adjust our understanding as a result"__Stand for pure...
1st Torch : Thought 6,000 years of human history had ended in 1873..........Blown out
2nd Torch : 1874 the Lord had returned......Blown out
3rd Torch : 1878 expected heavenly reward.........Blown out
4th Torch : 1881 ......Blown out
5th torch : 1925........Blownout
6th Torch : 1975.....Blown out
Who says the light is gettin' brighter in the world of a Witness
" Now going back to credibility"___Stand for pure.........
In Luke 19:11; Acts 1:6. They imagined and questioned about the kingdom. the Bible does not show where they taught anything wrong
because they were guided by Holy spirit
The WTS also compare themselves to Nathan the prophet
what they fail to realize is that Nathan only gave his opinion not a prophecy he claimed from God
The WTS is like Hanaiah the false prophet who taught folks to believe in a falsehood
to bad he didn't get a reprieve from " Nu lite " and the WTS won't either
