Buying time because their false prophecies in the past had failed miserably.
JSaturn, let me elaborate on pon's observation. How much time you could understand they bought? until 2075.
Using D, Splane's comments about F. Franz, who was 21 in 1914, but was anointed earlier, and died 1992, 78 years after 1914, the generations start; A similar living anointed that D.S. alluded to, would be 46 today, and after 87 years outliving Franz, die at age 98 in ~ 2070.
David Splane acknowledged older partakers around, so a "happy anniversary wt, 2075" is the time they bought themselves at least on paper,
BSW: This anointed overlapping generation not only distorts "Jesus' " words it also contradict "him". because
Jesus said the generation will not pass away. but the anointed generation has to pass away, before all these things, like Armageddon, the judgement of the goats, the sheep entering into everlasting life... occur.
As it stands, wt stands in error by its current teaching. buying time will not help to erase that.
