    WT says "the first group was on hand in 1914".

    Therefore the first group of anointed overlappers could have been anywhere from 20 - 80 years old by the time 1914 came around.
    This means they could have been born in 1834 if they were 80 in 1914, and could have died around 1974 if they were 20 in 1914.

    The second group of anointed overlappers could have been born in 1954 if they were to be anointed and baptised during the life of the first group of overlappers. If they were born in 1954 and live until they are 80, they will die in 2034.

    So the WT teaching is that the 'generation' Jesus spoke of could stretch from 1834 to 2034. A 200 year old 'generation'.



    "in mentioning “this generation,” Jesus was referring to two groups of anointed Christians."

    How do they know that he was referring to two groups? Because they say so? lol

    If the JW's were the true religion, why would Watchtower Jesus be in kingdom power since 1914 and let holy spirit cause the governing body and all JW's to believe "this generation" was the 1914 generation, then wait until 1995 to change it to mean something else, then to have this GB to NOW proclaim it means "over-lapping generation"? This is utter non-sense. It is obvious the JW religion is man-made and they make this bullshit up as they go. The Watchtower is a scam and people are being duped. Anyone who stays in because they actually believe this crap ia a dope.

    "in mentioning “this generation,” Jesus was referring to two groups of anointed Christians."

    Q. 1. Where in "this" do they see "these"?

    Q. 2. How are they so certain he was referring to "anointed Christians"?

    Answer: Because they say so.

    Matthew 24:34 give us confidence that at least some of “this generation will by no means pass away” before seeing the start of the great tribulation

    Love it. They just can't commit to anything now. It always has to have a back door built into it. The WTS has already said they don't keep a global data base of anointed "nor do [they] need to".

    By the time this matters the WTS will have long stopped publishing the numbers of partakers and can claim that "some" are alive well into the twilight of the 21st century.

    Even better, when time runs out they can claim that the GT has started, all anointed are gone to heaven, and we are now in the "unknown period of time" betwteen the start of the GT and the start of Armageddon. Then they can dance around predictions for this "unknown period of time" to keep the R&F in suspense.

    It was all planned almost to perfection with multiple redundancies.

    By current building codes,, every modern structure requires more than one fire escape, all well sign-posted. The Watchtower's structures are no exception, particularly those at Walkill. Indeed, it is the "overlapping generation" structural adjustment that provides the organization with multiple fire escapes.

    Jehovah is truly a loving God deep into this ever ongoing time of the end.

    Moly .... I am almost fainting with disbelief here...omg!


    That anyone, in their right mind could believe this kind of drivel!


    "We understand that in mentioning “this generation,” Jesus was referring to two groups of anointed Christians. The first group was on hand in 1914, and they readily discerned the sign of Christ’s presence in that year. Those who made up this group were not merely alive in 1914, but they were spirit-anointed as sons of God in or before that year.—Rom. 8:14-17.

    16 The second group included in “this generation” are anointed contemporaries of the first group. They were not simply alive during the lifetime of those in the first group, but they were anointed with holy spirit during the time that those of the first group were still on earth. Thus, not every anointed person today is included in “this generation"


    So if the above, is the "second fullfillment" of this scripture ...the first being

    when jesus at the Mt of Olives explained to his followers what would take place

    in THEIR days ....................... where is the "second group" at that time???


    Geez I can hardly even figure out how to phrase this question aaaaaggghhh!


    The Marx video is brilliant ......sums this up beautifully!


    Thank you for posting this example of watchtowers colossal,

    monstrous fuxx up ..... they will never live this one down.

    It will stand forever as religion's worst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    with you in exposing these lies!
