If END is Imminent, Why Witness in Silence in Public Places?

    Hi Shirley, what you have enumerated are additional paradoxical signs that JWs are preaching we are nearing the END of the system of things, yet the WT is reducing the no. of assemblies, the no. of hours to pioneer, scrapping the DO position, etc.

    It's either we belive one and despise the other. WT should make a categorical statement and support it with activities that are aligned to it.

    If we are to continue sharing the Good News of the Kingdom and help people to be reconciled to God as 2 Corinthians 5: 18-21 (NIV) states:

    18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin [ a ] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

    it should be anchored on LOVE and not based on specific dates that sow fear (1 John 4: 18).

    "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."

    Moreover, what we want to stand out is GOD'S Word - the BIBLE - and not make an impression that JW literatures and JW.ORG website are more important implicitly, that as if bible study literatures are INDISPENSABLE for understanding the Bible.

    You mean WT should practice what they preach?? What a concept ! LOL.

    In reality, WT operating as if it actually believes what it preaches is true is counter to its corporate interests.

    As I've said repeatedly, actions speak louder than words-everytime- and WT's actions clearly demonstrate at the very least they do not believe Armageddon is coming anytime soon; more accurately, they believe it's not coming at all.

    Pioneer 1: You think someone will approach us here?

    Pioneer 2: I hope not. I picked this low-traffic spot for a reason.

    Elder's Wife: What time is it now? Elder: Let's just pack up this shit and get out of here.
