Londo and his videos!
No JWdotOrg flags and emblems
Never seen or imagine something like the Royal Commission exposing all the sexual cover-ups by the WT
And none of my friends including my Ex can see this.
Wow! A lot has changed. I had forgotten about a lot of that stuff.
Thanks for the shout out.
Three years ago this month, I attended my last meeting. I think this October will make 4 years having started to do research and awaken.
This thread helped tremendously: http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/215282/wt-nov-1-2011-public-when-ancient-jerusalem-destroyed-part-2?size=10&page=1
I'm very thankful for AnnOMaly and others who dug into this and did the deep research.
So was it in the year 2011 that there was a consensus here on this website that 607 was a wrong date? Was in in that year that ex-jws finally pulled the curtain on 607-1914 false dates?
That curtain had been pulled back in the late 70's by Carl Olaf Johnson, of course. And really it had been decided by acedemics long before.
Unfortuntely, 2011 was the year I chose to look, rather than years before. AnnOMaly and others had been around this board many years before debating apologists such as "Scholar".
2011 was the year we had been waiting for...
Finally, an answer as to why "this magazine" (the Awake, thru October 22, 1995, page 4) that "builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away"
changed in the November 8, 1995 issue to
"the "magazine builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world that is about to replace the present wicked, lawless system of things."
2011 Watchtowers (Oct 1 & Nov 1) had the articles on 607.... That did it for us. This time, there were references, books, pages, author's names. We looked them up, did the math, and were out. No 607 meant no 1914, no 1919, no GB!
Londo's vids were great! Sometimes it's hard to simplify WT garbage. Londo, you did awesome!
Yep, we remember AnnOMaly, and all the other diligent scholars... We could NOT believe that others had figured this out oh so long before us!
Thank you all!
Thank you, cha ching!
I’m absolutely loath at self-promotion, but if any JW has stumbled on this thread and is considered doing this research, perhaps this can be a starting place for you. But in the end, do your own research!
