Do you believe that someone learns from past…experience?
«There was a measure of disappointment on the part of Jehovah's faithful ones on earth concerning the years 1914, 1918, & 1925, which disappointment lasted for a time.... and they also learned to quit fixing dates.» (Vindication I, 1938, p 338)
but two years later:
“What, then, does it mean that thetheocratic governmentis now suppressed in many nations? It means that the hour is rapidly approaching when the "sign" of Armageddon will be clearly revealed and all who are on the side of Jehovah will see and appreciate it.» (w40 9/1 p 265)
and 4 years later:
«Receiving the gift, the marching children clasped it to them, not a toy or plaything for idle pleasure, but the Lord's provided instrument for most effective work in the remaining months before Armageddon.» (w41 9/15 p 288)
