    Speaking about something that supposedly happened in 1918 and still speaking about living 'in the end' seems so irrational.

    Will they still speak about that in 10, 20, 50 years?

    If the end does not come, the whole JW doctrinal building collapses. There's no more.

    At these moments I realise what a irational mess this religion is.

    And how strange the fellow JW's are.

    Accurate prediction of one's future behaviour is based on observance

    Of past performance,

    I woman I know went to the speeches of "The Judge"

    Where she was told that she was a

    Bag of Bones and a Hank of Hair

    That brothers should not marry her

    As the end was nigh

    On her death bed she told her family to



    Her family didn't listen

    As they are spiritual (believing) sort of folk


    If they keep baptizing 10 to 15 year Olds

    They have successfully indoctrinated

    The next generation

    So that

    They are golden

    The past idea about the 1914-1919 events was a reassembled house of cards that supported all following predictions, 1975 and all. but particularly the latest GB = Faithful & Discreet Slave of 1919 cornerstone.

    With the 1918 captivity and release from "Babylon tg" removed, that house of doctrinal cards is actually collapsing, and with it the legitimacy of the WT's claims.

    Everything's very calculated

    And it doesn't really matter

    The faithful are the faithful

    1925 came and went

    In 1929 they broke ground on Beth Sharim

    Luxury at the beginning of the Great Depression

    Maybe millions of families homeless and hungry

    Where was the Judge?

    The Witnesses kept growing to Rutherford's death

    The faithful are the faithful

    The WTS seems to be doing a lot white washing these days to cover up its many past false misleading doctrines such as 1914 , 1919 etc. trying to make themselves still viable as the chosen organization above all others.

    This is the biggest dilemma the recent GB members have to deal with today, the past GB members are all dead now which further adds to the prevailing problem. The proclaimed "This Generation" has certainly passed away from the last century and that's why the GB today has to twist and do a juggling act to try and keep them looking legitimate.

  • Gorbatchov

    @finkelstein you are right. But they do half work

    Instead of doing away the trash they are cleaning it.

    Like someone else said here. I just don't know why they just stop mentioning it. The JW rational they will soon forget about it. It's like they are trying to dig a deeper whole.

    Gorbatchov - "At these moments I realize what a irrational mess this religion is."

    What, you hadn't figured that out already? :wink:
