    The Watchtower Society has announced the celebration of 100 year of Kingdom Rule since 1914.

    In recent history, more dictorial regimes has celebrated their years of rule.

    I see the Society's celebration as the Big Mistake. It's a Boomerang, a double edged sword.

    During and in the aftermath of the celebration there is a change that the institution, the Watchtower system, will breakdown.

    Just like the German Demoratic Republic, celebrating their 40 years of rule! In a few month's time the GDR was gone.

    The "plugging" of the 100 years is a calculated risk by the WT. They could not ignore it, but they know that very very few JW's will be moved to research about it in any way.

    JW's are trained to be mentally lazy, to be spoon-fed doctrines, ideas and how they should act (mainly how many $$$ they should give to the WT).

    1914 will be taught as a fact, with no supporting evidence in the future, it will also receive much less attention, being replaced with stuff about how close the End is, so as not to focus on the Beginning, 1914.

    Eventually it will go the way of 1874, 1925 and 1975.

    The WT will still be here, urging more $ giving, before it is "too late". Too late for them to spend it that is.

    Most JWs are brain-dead.

    They don't know enough about their own religion to find anything wrong with it. They just go through the motions too busy to think about any of it.

    I dare ya. Just ask one to explain the Biblical basis for 1914 or why Jesus chose the Bible Students/JWs in 1918.

    They when they can't, tell them you meant 1919.

    Was it 1918 or 1919. THEY WON'T KNOW.

    The MOST IMPORTANT DATE in their religion, and THEY WON'T KNOW!
