I guess if the JDubs have no clue how long a generation is they also wouldn't know how long a time period the word "soon" refers too.
60 years ago my mother would hammer into my brain how soon the Great Tribulation was. Soon Jehovah would destroy the wicked. Then a few years later there was no need to go to college because the end was so soon.
How long is the time period for soon? If you have to work late and you call your wife to let her know that you will be home soon, when will she expect you to be home? In hours, weeks, months, years, or decades?
If you are driving to see relatives in another state and the children in the backseat get restless and ask, "How much longer until we get there?" Of course, the answer is "soon." Hold on kiddies, in Watchtower Land lingo you could be on one hell of a long drive.
If you are single and you find the love of your life, then later you propose to the person. You proudly announce to the parents, "We are getting married soon." What time frame is in their mind?
You are in the car driving a long distance and your wife tells you that she needs to stop and use the restroom soon, how much time are you going to give her?
I was going to write down how the dictionary defines the word soon; however, everyone reading this already knows. Now if I knew that the Gibbering Booty would read this then I would have done that since they don't seem to know how soon is soon.
The saddest thing is that JDub children today are saying how soon the end is. Only in God's Organization could grandparents, parents, and children die during a single time period of soon.
