This article is just a mash-up of the usual bits they want to continue to repeat to the rank and file. From the outside looking in you wonder why anyone would believe this stuff .... any church could claim (and most do claim) they were chosen by God.
But I found this tidbit interesting in p14: "Many who thirsted for Bible truth fled to countries where the influence of the church was less pervasive. They wanted to read and study and converse with one another without being told what to think".
All JWs have to study the WT version of their history over and over again, and yet, if someone wants to converse with someone without being told what to think..... well, we all know how that works. I am always shocked (I shouldn't be, I know) by how gullible people (and people I know and like, who I know are smart in other ways) can be.
