This is what I am proposing regarding the articles (New Light) in the
WT Study article and in the coming future WT study articles regarding the preaching work of door to door.
The Watchtower has
revealed their cards on how they change major doctrine by the way they have handled Changes in main
doctrinal matters in the past.
They start very
slowly making small implications of change---until finally the
COMPLETE CHANGE IN DOCTRINE reaches----Crescendo.
For example, this is
how the Generation Doctrine changed over time and the indications
that they take their sweet time in spilling the beans, so to speak.
Usually it takes YEARS for complete change.
But the difference
this time is the Pandemic that has forced them to stop the Door to
Door preaching altogether----- PLUS all the Child sex abuse exposure
on the internet and the New Media.
897 - A group of contemporary people
"Other uses of this Greek word (genea) prove that
it is not used with the significance of race, but in reference to
people living contemporaneously.... In other words, the signs
mentioned will occur within a generation - epoch in the close of the
age." Studies in the Scriptures Vol 4 pp.602,603
1927 - The anointed
"The irresistible conclusion therefore is that
Jesus referred to the new creation [the anointed] when he
said: This generation shall not pass until all these things be
fulfilled. This then would be a strong indication that some members
of the new creation will be on the earth at the time of Armageddon."
Watchtower 1927 Feb 15 p.62
1951 - A fixed period of time from 1914 applied to worldly
"The actual meaning of these words is, beyond
question, that which takes a generation in the ordinary sense, as
at Mark 8:12 and Acts 13:36, or for those who are living at the given
period. So it was on this generation that the accumulated
judgments were to fall. (Matt. 23:36) This therefore means that
from 1914 a generation shall not pass till all is fulfilled, and
amidst a great time of trouble." Watchtower 1951 Jul 1
1995 - A group of contemporary worldly people
"Jesus was not departing from his established use of
the term this generation, which he consistently applied to the
contemporary masses with their blind guides who together made
up the Jewish nation. ... Jesus refers principally to contemporary
people of a certain historical period, with their identifying
characteristics." Watchtower 1995 Nov 1 pp.14,20
2008 - The anointed
"As a class, these anointed ones make up the
modern-day "generation" of contemporaries that will not
pass away "until all these things occur." This suggests
that some who are Christ's anointed brothers will still be alive on
earth when the foretold great tribulation begins." Watchtower
2008 Feb 15 p.24
2010 - A fixed period from 1914 applied to the anointed
"He evidently meant that the lives of the anointed
who were on hand when the sign began to become evident in 1914
would overlap with the lives of other anointed ones who would see
the start of the great tribulation." Watchtower 2010
April 15 p.10
THE OVERLAPPING GENERATION WAS BEING CREATED.
The September 2015 JW Broadcast on tv.jw.org explained that the
generation included any anointed that met Frederick William Franz, as he
was born and baptised prior to 1914.
No doubt at this
moment they have no concrete plans to abruptly STOP THE DOOR TO DOOR
They are probably
formulating a PLAN B, to eventually stop the door to door forever and
replace it with other safer methods of recruiting members, like cart
witnessing and letter writing.
There are to many
“WOKE” PEOPLE who will question the Jws on apostate information
and the Child abuse problem-----thus leading to a bigger exodus from
Eliminating Door to Door would prevent this.
Plus reducing the
need for members to gather together in large groups will lessen the
possibility of more pedophiles taking advantage of the JW environment
to abuse more kids, leading to more lawsuits which is KILLING THE
So I expect them to
at least TRY to re-institute the Door to Door preaching after the
Pandemic, to at least get some indication of where they are headed as
far a keeping the organization a float.
But I believe the
plans to discard the Door to Door work is in the WORKINGS.
Maybe they are
already also planning on limiting the meetings, to a one day a
week----SUNDAY TALK and Watchtower Study
They HAVE TO GO
MAINSTREAM and STREAMING, if they want to survive.
THEY REALLY HAVE NO
