I don't think they will drop 1914, not yet. Just think about this: THE INFORMATION AGE! The age that busted Bill Cosby! The age that makes or breaks careers with Twitter! The GB are trying to beat THE INFORMATION AGE....... IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!!!!
Back in the day you could be a movie star, politician, or sports star and be a real DICK in your personal life and guess what?? Nobody knew it!! Sure people gossiped like always, but how far did it really go? Not too far. Oh sure, some legends floated around about how Howard Hughes had issues but who really KNEW it?
What about Bill "Pudding Pop" Cosby? He never did those things 40 years ago, that was a "fact" for most people. It was "fact" a few months ago, but THEN..... THE INFORMATION AGE balanced the scales!!!! Now everyone KNOWS....
Well then, what does this mean for the WTBTS? They simply cannot afford one more blunder, not with EVERYTHING ELSE that has been exposed over time by THE INFORMATION AGE. Joining the U.N, Mexico/Malawi, OSCE, Pedo cover-ups, their own TRUE history and origins, these are all contributing factors to the decline of the WTBTS. They don't need anymore problems! 1914 is THE linchpin that holds the wheels on the chariot of GOD. The WTBTS cannot drop 1914, not yet, there's too much heat.
Anyway, when they "adjust" 1914's significance, I will tell my wife, " I told you so." We had a discussion about a month before the "Imitate Jesus" convention. I explained to her that she had no "beliefs", only the latest doctrine, until it changes. Then the GB Helper, Brother Sycophant McPinkieRing said this from stage about the new Jesus book, "Blah, blah, blah, this book contains our updated doctrinal views." LOL!!! I snickered out loud and my wife KNEW!!! She tensed up and briefly glanced my way, but had to look away at the giant screen, her euphoria interrupted.
The truth is a cruel mistress at times.
