    TheListener - The fact that my wife believes this and tries to teach it to others in her rare field service outings amazes me. I can't imagine how insane anyone but an indoctrinated person would think this teaching is.
    I would laugh if the whole damn thing wasn't so painful

    It's amazing to see and they are so proud that they have been able to grasp such a complex idea.

    The sheep have been more interested in trying to understand the concept that they overlook the most important thing and that is whether the concept is viable in the first place.

    Prologos: think of a scripture about the term generation" and then he mentioned one about Joseph or something like that?---it was Exodus 1:6 " eventually Joseph died, and his brothers, and all that generation" The implication being that people of all ages were in Joseph's generation, but it was a dead generation of all ages, not continuous overlappers, the wt theory is been thoroughly debunked in previous threads.

    Indeed it has but I was merely pointing out the OP's point that they did actually use a scripture to try and prove their point...if we went to a dub and said "pfffft they never even used a scripture to try and prove it" the dub would respond with that they did and that we must just be bitter, mentally diseased apostates!

    Hi pandoradbox1914,

    Thank you for your post. And any contributors for helping me finally understand what I didn't understand about the WTBT$'s explanation re the overlapping situation!!! Fisherman's and OUTLAW'S banter was cool.

    So if Three generations can now be described as One, does that mean that the trinity can now be accepted as well? 3, yet 1, yet 3.....

    Wt not only tried to stretch the generation, making it longer, they also are asserting it covers a shorter time. because "Jesus" decreed that the generation would include, or see the final destruction (of Jerusalem, the world), but wt writers say: no!, the anointed overlappers will pass away before the final destruction*.

    They shorten the time covered, but try to stretch it by packing more (2 consecutively living groups) into it.

    * the good thing in this idea they love is, that the goal of all jws, : to survive Armageddon, will not be shared by the anointed GB, F&DS.

    When are they going to come out of the closet and INSERT, ''rapture''??? Since that loonie teaching of the WT in late 2013 about the anointed and the F&DS being taken to Heaven prior to the onset of the GT.

    In 2040, we never said that (overlapping G.) some friends went beyond what was written.

    But believe us today, it will come 2045, you can count on it.

    WE must keep this in mind, Methuselah was 187 years old when he begot Lamech and he lived

    to 969 years old, that is a hell of a generation, 782 years.

    Beth Sarim: "-- the anointed and the F&DS being taken to Heaven prior to the onset of the GT". The teaching is actually rapture during the GT, but prior to the onset of the climax of the GT, prior to the onset of the big battle of A.

    The wt does not not want admit the misquoted "Jesus" himself. that is how much they care about doctrine. Their Truth.
