My grandfather who has been dead for 37 years would not recognise the borganisation today. He would turn in his grave if he knew the end didn’t come by 2023.
back in the 1970s he really believed in the 75 thing. He was so disappointed and almost blamed everyone else why the end didn’t come. If anyone talked about making plans for the near future he would tell them off saying there is no way this old system will last much longer.
The big problem is that very old doctrine was never meant to last this long.
here we are 2023 and the next generation has grown up propagating old ideas from men who have all died already
We are too far away from 1914 by now, but this new generation can’t think of a way to get away from it.
how can they now? The overlapping nonsense was designed to buy some time, perhaps enough time for the current crop to be looked after in luxury but the next generation of top dogs will have to think of a way to get away from 1914 and 607bce. 77 week prophecy that we all know is wrong.
Many times it is said in prayers at the KH about our reigning king Jesus. They believe he has been reigning king since 1914. But the further we get away from 1914 the more people will doubt this.
my guess is at some point over the next few decades they will announce new light. They will probably do it gradually and the organisation will be unrecognisable compared to what it was a few decades ago.
it’s constantly changing. There will be hardly anyone disfellowshipped from now on with the change that if someone says going to the JD will make them suicidal then nothing will happen. It’s a get out of jail free card.
the reduction in ministry these days we only do ten mins then have coffee break
elders have a much easier job, there is no preparation needed to take any items these days.
