Where is it written?

    Some time ago I came across this quote claiming to be from a Watchtower publication;

    1953 –“Bible chronology also fixes the time for Christ's second presence and the assuming of his right to rule as at 1914; this date was published in The Watchtower as early as 1879, 35 years before 1914.” (TSCP 3)

    This is of course misleading, for while the date was indeed published in Watchtowers from the very beginning, Christ’s second presence and his becoming king were not assigned to that year until many years after (1933 and 1922 respectively, to be precise).

    However, I am having great difficulty tracking the source for this quote. Does anyone on this forum know what book/booklet/document TSCP stands for? Presumably published in 1953.

    This quotation is taken from a Watchtower pamphlet - The Sign of Christ's Presence - published in 1953 and available here.

    Even if it were in writing, so what?

    The scriptures state that in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. And words are not witnesses unless they are from God.

    It's like the fastest draw in the West.

    Wanna see it again?? Meh.

    The Watchtower /Governing Body /Jehovah`s Witnesses are notorious for re-writing their own history .

    In other words lying about their past statements.

    And to quote their own words that they apply to others and in this case applys to them John 8:44

    "You are from your father the devil......He did not stand fast in the truth,because truth is not in him.when he speaks the lie he speaks according to his own disposition because he is a liar and the father of the lie.

    And when JW/G.B.W.T. lie about their past history they show who their God really is.
