I know Simon doesn't like us duplicating our comments from one thread to another, but I'm going to repeat here what I said this morning in another thread, because I think that there are a lot of people who still worry that the WTS's prediction of a great cry of "peace and security" might yet come true.
The fact is that the Watchtower's interpretation of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 is totally bogus anyway. The whole point of the text, read in context (excuse me for introducing the context, I know how that plays havoc with Watchtower teachings), is that the day of the Lord will come like a "thief in the night," at a time when no one is expecting it. Christians will not be taken by surprise, however, because they have learned to expect the return of Christ at any time, and to always be prepared for it to happen. But even Christians would not know in advance when it was coming. Jesus told his disciples at Matthew 24:44, "So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him." The "you" in that quotation was the disciples, so even they would not know the time in advance. Whenever he comes, unbelievers will be thinking that there is "peace and security," because they have no idea what is coming, and the day will overtake them by surprise.
Nowhere in the text do we read even an implication that there will be a notable cry of "peace and security" by the nations, as a final signal that Armageddon is about to burst forth. That is strictly a fiction invented by the WTS to keep its followers in constant fear and anticipation.
