I found this interesting topic on the current views among JWs regarding the Overlapping generation.
The posts are hilarious
How do most Jehovah's Witnesses explain the Overlapping Generation?
I've asked a couple of jws to explain the Overlapping generation and they directed me to the website jw------org.
Either they don't know, or they do know but don't want to discuss it because they know it's bogus and embarrassing.
Either way, surely they must know that this just extended the last days another 80 years from the time Fred Franz died. Meaning that most won't be around to see the END. Unless you are one year old, you won't see the end. 😩
Or is it possible they haven't sat down to reflect and calculated the extension in time that has been created by this Overlapping generation idea.
If I was a JW and believed with all my heart that the end was close, and that I shouldn't go to College, that I should refuse a blood transfusion even if it meant my life, report all sins to elders, etc. And NEW LIGHT told me that the END has been extended another 80 years---------I would just walk out without saying anything to anyone and live my life the way I wanted to.
Why do they STAY if they have just been told by the GB that the end has been extended another 80 years??
