    A redditor caught this in w15 7/15 p. 15 par. 5

    Should we conclude, though, that the destruction of the religions of Babylon the Great results in the death of all the former members of those religions? Apparently not.

    This is a change from God's Kingdom Has Approached book.

    So, last-minute conversions after seeing the fulfillment of Mt. 24, 1 Thess,, and Rev. are possible, right?

    It also suggests that most religious people will be killed at the same time that their religion is destroyed or no longer exists.

    When they have talked about the destruction of btt in the past, I thought they just meant religions, not people.

    Actually after thinking about this, this is just another very ambiguous statement of WT.

    That is, the adherents of BTG will not be destroyed along with BTG, but that does not mean that they will survive Armageddon.

    berrygerry " the adherents of BTG will not be destroyed along with BTG, but that does not mean that they will survive Armageddon." but
    the "anointed" will cease to exist during the GT, as per Rev. 20. axed. They will not survive Armageddon, not even the GT.
    par.6: "flesh will be saved", yeah, but not that of the anointed, because they will be already goners before Armageddon, so why worry about their lifeless flesh? let the angels do it.
    wt is following a flawed script, the talking snake story,
    Destruction of Jerusalem = Armageddon (all these things) but the "anointed" pass away before all these things.
    so the "anointed" die along with the BTG organisations.
    The flesh to worry about is of the OS, individuals, "God's people" (par. 6) the generation.

    This is an example of the way anyone in the org that has been around for a while has no idea of what they "believe" any more. The simple fact is that they don't have beliefs or convictions, they have to scurry away to read the latest clap trap before answering any thing but the most trivial question.

    So my question, can any JW claim to have an individual faith or belief?
