Do JWs Still Believe That Everything Pictures The “Anointed”?
I was just discussing this somewhere else. Watchtower has backed themselves into a corner.
A lot of scriptures don't make sense within their doctrine of not going to heaven, like 1 corinthians 15.50 " flesh cannot inherit God's kingdom, nor does corruption inherit incorruption" , unless everything in the NT basically refers to the 144000.
So slowly slowly, as people have realised that and pointed these scriptures out, Watchtower has had to say more and more of it only apply to the 144,000!!
Surely the number of 144,000 has been achieved 1,000 times over since the first century AD..
Think about it ,a football stadium can hold on average 40-60 thousand people ,here in Melbourne the MCG can hold 100,000 people for one game.In one day.
And Jehovah`s Witnesses would like to have us believe that in over 2,000 years the almighty God Jehovah still hasn`t been able to find 144,000 out of faithful men and women to obtain this number of 144,000
Their have been Billions of Christians these past 2000 years who have lived and died many of which went through persecution,torture and even death upholding their faith in God and Jesus.
And their weren`t enough of these to fill the 144,000 anointed ?
And none of these were faithful enough to of the anointed ?
According to the latest figures their is now something like 18,000 who are /claim to be of the anointed today ?

and they all were partakers
but did not believe in the overlapping generation.
