    Page 13, par. 18 - "Yes, we have good reason to rejoice over the good work and spiritual activity that we can expect when believing mankind enjoys life during Christ’s Millennial Reign."

    Hey "faithful slave," aren't you forgetting something? How can mankind enjoy Christ's millenial reign when you and your predecessors have assured millions of JW's that resurrected people are going to be practicing vile things. (John 5:28,29)

    w82 4/1 p. 25 par. 18 - "Both “those who did good things” and “those who practiced vile things” will be among “those dead” who will be “judged individually according to their deeds” performed after their resurrection."

    The Washtowel Babble & Crap Society of New York still speaking out of both sides of their fat cake-holes!

    as a foretaste of that, after the love-on this year, the 2020 conventions are going to be all joy.

    TFG: very good point, not just during the millennium, but after that is all finished, another perfect rebellion on the four cornered Earth. The vile leaving a pile.

    Actually the Bible says the evil ones and everyone else who isn’t the judges will not be resected until the end of the thousand years

    The Fall Guy:

    Thank you! Great information as usual!

    The front page has a picture of the paradise earth again. They are picking grapes this time. It's a proper vineyard, very organised, which means they believe man will continue to cultivate the earth, unlike the paradise that Adam and Eve lived in.

    It looks like they just returned from a meeting and took their jackets off, they are wearing shirts.

    Their clothes are 1960s style. Stepping into their future is like stepping into the past.

    Listener. are they eating them. hope not. it means there will be alcoholic drinks (and people ) in paradise as one pioneer in a tough assignment said: "In the new World I am going to be a one crop farmer: Grapes for fermentation only". . unlike

    Louis Pasteur who said " Je prefer mon vin en grappe" I prefer my wine still in the grape(unfermented).

    In case any active JW feels that I'm plucking a single feather from the G.B. "chicken," here are other confirmatory references:

    it-2 p. 789 Resurrection - Jesus was therefore evidently taking a similar position in time in speaking of “those who did good things” and “those who practiced vile things,” [John 5:28,29] namely, a position at the end of the period of judgment, as looking back in retrospect or in review of the actions of these resurrected persons after they had opportunity to obey or disobey the “things written in the scrolls.”"

    re chap. 41 p. 300 par. 16 - "...showing that those resurrected ones who “practiced vile things”after being instructed in the inspired Scriptures and scrolls are judged to be unworthy of life."

    rs p. 338 par. 1 - "Both those who formerly did good things and those who formerly practiced bad things will be “judged individually according to their deeds.” What deeds? If we were to take the view that people were going to be condemned on the basis of deeds in their past life, that would be inconsistent* with Romans 6:7...... Jesus was expressing the outcome after they had been uplifted to human perfection and been put on judgment."

    bh p. 214 par. 3 - "...the judgment will not focus on what people did before they died.....individuals will be judged on the basis of what they do during Judgment Day."

    uw chap. 9 p. 76 par. 12 - "They will be “judged individually according to their deeds” performed after their resurrection."

    w78 9/1 p. 22 par. 9 - "...the former life pattern will affect the problem of the resurrected ones as to their conforming to Kingdom requirements........they will either turn to the course of doing good things or turn to the practicing of vile things."

    * The org and the 'slave' are asserting that no one will be judged for any evil they've done before they died, because their own death 'wipes their slate clean.' So serial killers who evade capture and eventually die at a good old age in a nursing home, have nothing to worry about - according to the Wizards of Warwick. (WoW)

    This is a dogma which has gone over the heads of the vast majority of JW's. Ask a JW about this the next time you meet one and a glazed look will come over their eyes as they try to a) deny it and b) 'explain' it.

    I know - it's exactly how an elder at a trolley reacted when I questioned him about it.

    And why not? The 60s were pretty much their high point.

    Double-digit growth year over year. A fixed date for Armageddon, in the not-distant future, to ramp up enthusiasm. No pesky facts available on the internet, no child abuse lawsuits, plenty of income from books & magazines. Apostates were shadowy figures who ranted & raved outside conventions & clearly looked mentally ill.

    They'd love to go back in time 50 years.

    Seriously though...

    ...this is merely one example of the absolute shit-ton of contradictions inherent in just about any Bible-based theology; WT or otherwise.

    One of the biggest (for me, at least), is the claim that - essentially - "all you need is faith"...

    ...and then a few NT books later, the insistence that "faith without works is dead".

    Say what you will about Islam, but at least their holy book was written by one guy, and is fairly consistent.
