    I don't care about 607/1914. I was more concerned about other parts of the article "Prepare Now for Life in the New World". Paragraphs 6 & 7 are particularly mind-bending. They sure don't make the paradise sound very enjoyable: ...unappealing work...? ...ASSIGNED to live...? No choice? SUBMIT!

    Yes indeed - the quote is below:

    Today, of course, we do not know where each one of us may be assigned to live in the new system of things. However, cooperation will bring us contentment and great happiness as we do Jehovah’s will wherever we live on earth at that time.

    Sell that dream baby - sell it!

    Of course, our circumstances may change with the passing of time. For instance, some members of the Bethel family in the United States have been reassigned to the field and are now enjoying abundant blessings in other forms of the full-time ministry. Because of advancing age or other factors, others who were in the traveling work have now received special pioneer assignments.

    How happifying it is to see how God treats older ones. Retirement? No - do more!

    when the Organization speaks, it's Jehovah speaking to us

    Now see, that's the problem. This is simply NOT true.

    It is, in fact, demonstrably false.

    Statements like this should cause any reasonable person to be highly suspicious.

    Let's review: It's a cult!

    Magnum: So they're sticking with 607/1914 - at least for a while.

    Yeah, none of the bozos in the current GB 2.0 have the imagination of Crazy Freddy Franz. He was whacked, but at least his ideas were interesting.

    Obviously, the seven little mental dwarves currently in the leadership position of this cult haven't had an original thought between them in, .... well: Never!

    wt likes those old dates, because they are cast in old world stone. The latter day pyramids. 2018 coming up, 100 years since Germany's surrender. 1919, ----100 years of the Treaty of Versailles, and of the 2013 discovered "existence" of the wtBtS Inc's GB and FaDS.

    Reason for the 'slavery warning' in the new world? to cool down the jw's fervour to "hasten the day". Total control by the "glorious ones"? never.

    I can't believe they're even making paradise downright unappealing now. Follow all these rules so you can make it to paradise and.....follow more rules. Yay! Yay you!!

    WT cannot throw away 1914 nonsense. They will have to slowly dilute the meaning of the year and pushed into distant memory before they will remove it from their theology and totally get rid of it. It will be long process, but it seams that it started already in the mid 1990's with overlapping generations and they will eventually deny that they ever claim it as the start of the heavenly kingdom. WT still claimed in early 1920's that the end of the time started in 1799 in Napoleon's invasion of Rome.

    Oubliette - Yeah, when she said that I just wanted to scream, "Do you not see how that is fucking crazy?!!"

    How will she and every other overzealous J-dub react to these articles?

    "Oh, what's this? More bullshit?"

    Yes, Faye, a rule for everything and for everything a rule. It's so oppressive.

    Especially when you compare it to the 2 simple rules of Jesus: love Jehovah, love your neighbor.

    My yoke is kindly and my load is light, says Jesus. I wish the GB would lighten up.

    17 Events on the world scene clearly indicate
    that Bible prophecy is now being
    fulfilled and that the end of this wicked
    system of things is imminent.


    Imminent. Probably the most overused work in the WT lexicon.

    Yup, not just soon, but imminent.

    Oh, and WT Dec 1, 1952

    . But now, by occurrence of every detail of the great sign Jesus gave, we know that we face the imminent end of the present world system.
