    This is a facebook link and I just can't bring myself to dig into jw . org and find it.
    There's no trick here, but I think you have to be logged in to see it. If anyone could figure out how to repost this, that would be great. It's such garbage from jw . org.

    The link didn't work for me.

    They act like they used to believe (FOR SO LONG) that "this generation" was "the wicked."

    It demonstrates that they flipped and flopped just so they could refer to the old light as something that most witnesses never really thought sounded right, and to ignore all those years of mentioning the 1914 generation.

    And then they go on to do the math and details about Fred Franz as if he is a huge key to "the overlapping generation." Oh, and they leave some wiggle room for extending "this generation."

    cappy, click on the link then log into facebook on that page. It comes up that way for me.
  • cappytan

    It's still not coming up for me. But you mentioned it was about the "generation."

    Is it the same video wifibandit posted here?

  • OnTheWayOut

    Yes, that's it. Thanks. Everyone, go to wifibandit's link: Nothing to see here.

    Really, I didn't know it was posted. You guys are so "on top of things." I knew it was important to pass along.

    You have to keep up with Jehovah's Chariot, brother!

    Translation: "We were wrong about the meaning of this ordinary word 'generation' for about 100 years, but now we've got it right with the 'overlapping generation' explanation. ... You can trust us!"

    Ugh, let's review: It's a cult!

    Splane is evidently plagiarizing a chart I made a couple of years ago and posted here on JWN after the release of the Watchtower, January 15, 2014:

    (I'm not sure why the chart no longer appears in the old thread. So I've reposted it above).

    This was also discussed in a more recent thread about three months ago.

    In the first thread I wrote:

    "So, apparently, there are now three groups of "anointed" ones:

    1. Those anointed before 1914
    2. Those anointed after 1914, but before the death of the last of those in group #1.
    3. Those anointed after the death of the last person in group #1. (See point #2 above)


    It is interesting to note that Fred W. Franz is not mentioned in the WT article of January 15, 2014. Yet now, according to Splane, he is the key person in this concept. Born in 1893, Franz was baptized in 1913 or 1914, making him part of the first group. He is also presumably the last person of the first group to die. Franz died on December 22, 1992.

    According to that WT, the first two groups comprise the "this generation" that Jesus mentioned at Matthew 24:34, albeit in an "overlapping" manner. The third group is explicitly NOT part of "this generation."

    Thus, not every anointed person today is included in “this generation” of whom Jesus spoke. - w2014, 1/15, p. 32, para. 16

    Careful readers of the 1/15/2014 study article will note that it contained so scriptural references or evidence of any kind to support this new twist on the "Overlapping Generation" idea. It is all just unfounded assertion. Splane's current explanation is just as devoid of "evidence."

    But hey, who needs evidence when you're the leaders of a cult."

    Can I say with absolute certainty that Splane used my chart and my JWN post two years ago to come to their "current understanding" and explanation of the "overlapping generation" nonsense? No, I cannot. But it's ironically funny that I explained it more than two years exactly the way they do now.

    What is really brilliantly ironic is that I am now--as I was then--100% convinced that it's all bullshit!

    It's interesting that they even address the discrepancy between two different published dates for FWF's baptism.

    Let's review: It's a cult!

    (Note: I made a few minor revisions to my post I quoted to make it more clear now, more than 2 years after the original post. For example, I put in the date of the WT rather than saying "last week's WT").
