I have been doing a bit of research. Wasn't Ray Franz who got it in the Watchtowere that 1975 was going to be the end of the world? I just liked to know. Was he considered part of the 144,000? Well he was a false prophet then as 1975 did not come. What a mockery. My dad taught me that children will be killed like when moses and Jesus were babies. I was about six at the time. Now he is licking his wounds I guess. I am not a JW, but what rings true is he sinned against the holy spirit. His heavenly gift expired as he was arrogant enough to say that 1975 would be the end. All those poor sods that preached and gave money to the Watchtower from selling their property. If God needed money, would he not have turned the moon to gold? Please help me.
