I was thinking today about the descriptions of the future "Paradise" presented by the Watchtower, and I was struck by something about it. Most of us are aware that the Watchtower promotes an interpretation of the apocalypse that would result in the immediate execution of 99.9% of the population with no hope for resurrection. Additionally, we have been told about the large group of people that are supposed to side with Satan at the end of the thousand year reign of Christ. Today, however, I thought of another group that would face destruction. Namely, any individual who has a difference of opinion with God after the thousand year reign of Christ was over.
The example of Satan show's us that even a supposedly perfect being without any outside influence could come to hold a viewpoint that differs from God's on certain matters. According to the Watchtower, God is allowing the suffering today in the name of justice, so that he is able to give an answer to "Satan's challenge." The Watchtower has also said that this whole experiment in self-rule will allow God to swiftly execute any future "rebels." So, how many "perfect" beings over the course of an eternity may independently come to hold a different viewpoint from God on certain matters? Because, according to the Watchtower, all of those individuals will face a quick execution at the hands of our "loving" Creator.
Anyway, that concludes my initial thoughts on today's episode of "Messed Up Watchtower Teachings."
