I find it interesting that we need to rationalize these seeming disparities of doctrine at all.
While it is true that, if a JW is asked directly if they believe that only JW's will survive, the answer is almost invariably "no". The reply is that "only Jehovah can judge a person's heart". This is the politically correct view.
Yet, in perusing other boards over the past few months, a different picture presents itself. When John Kennedy, Jr. was killed, there was a discussion started up on another board. Several people mentioned that they thought he was a wonderful person, and they were relieved that he died before Armageddon so that he would be resurrected. They expressed the thought that they would hate to see JFK, Jr., die because he was not a JW.
Others have written little stories about post-Armageddon celebrations involving ONLY JW's. These little stories are rather morbid, talking about poor Mr. Jones and his family, who lived near the Kingdom Hall....too bad he hadn't become a JW, because he would be alive today....tsk, tsk.
This is one of the things that has bothered me for some time.....the disparity of belief....the politically correct view vs the narrow view.
We have all at one time or another been very adept at coordinating these disparate views. But should we?
