More Silly Stuff from jw.org videos
I remember at the Regional Convention July of 1914 outside the gate of the arena in the morning. Beautiful summer day, few clouds. There were two older men talking emphatically about how ''1914 is 100 years ago now. IT IS JUST IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANOTHER 100 YEARS TO PASS BY, OOOOOOH, JUST BEYOND ANY REALM OF POSSIBILITY'''!!! They were gesturing away, waving their hand dismissing any possibility at all!!! About it. Well!! Maybe if I could call up Doc Emmet Brown, I would just like to see July 2114, for curiosity sake!! LOL. Maybe surprised.!!
"Splane's masterful explanation was so good, I wont repeat it."..(meaning....because I cant understand it either...)
Why is it that the "overlapping Generation" concept, though not proven in any way, is suddenly treated as good as solid fact.? Nowhere does any scripture say anything about "overlapping". I know this has all been brought up before, but this is just such blatant BS that it cant be explained without word-for-word notes and/or a teleprompter. And I just love that their back-up references to prove their points are..... other WT articles...... oh brother...
Such garbage. What difference does it make to be a "wicked" generation, or a "non-wicked" generation? A generation is still a generation....and not overlapping nonsense. And what difference does it make what year Franz was baptized?
Well said tech49!
A generation is a generation....whether wicked or righteous
The term ''generation'' is looking like a failed prophecy. There is NO POSSIBLE way EVER, but to try to cover it up and explain their way out of it by overlapping plus overlapping.
Admission of ''failed'' doctrine would no doubt open the ''floodgates'' of doubters and massive fallout. They're doing all they can to ramp-up explanations of their opinions and as long as the rank and file believe it's the ''Truth'', they buy it!!!!!
I meant July 2014 when I was outside the gate in the morning, oops typo, LOL!!!
This idiot in the video is trying to to spin some more bullshit concerning ' This Generation ' doctrine which has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.
Now take and obey this spiritual food that I have provided for you know it comes from FDSL anointed ones/executive directors of the Watchtower Publishing house.
What, did I hear someone say BS , well we'll have you up before some elders for counseling quickly.
Remember to be obedient to us is being obedient to Jehovah and you know already how Jehovah treats people who are disobedient to him ?
This broadcast is an example where I got my user name. It is the JW that use "adjusted" thinking, knowledge to justify false teachings.
I also like their constant use of
"evidently" "it stands to reason"
"For the sake of argument. . ." There can be no "argument" with these self-appointed jokers interpretations of the Bible.
Now "let's assume. . ." Well we all know what happens when one does assume. It makes an ASS of U and ME.
Also what was with the explanation brother baldy gave of what "we" thought a generation was? That isn't what I remember being taught. I know, I know, don't try to make sense of non-sense.
Who writes crap like this? What knucklehead would offer this drivel in a public statement, worldwide and to millions of people.

"... Brother Splane masterfully explained this generation with all it entailed. He did such a beautiful job, I'm not going to attempt to repeat it.
For many years we felt that this generation referred to the unfaithful Jews in the first century....and in the modern day fulfillment it was felt that Jesus was referring to the wicked generation that would see the features of the conclusion of the system of things.
That was likely because often times in the Bible when the word generation was used it was in a negative sense. There were qualifiers like 'wicked generation', 'twisted', 'adulterous', 'crooked' generation ... and so it was assumed that the generation that would by knows means pass away until the end came would also be the wicked generation of today.
However, that notion was adjusted in Feb 15, 2008 issue of the Watchtower. There it referenced Matt 24:32-33.
[Reads and comments on Matt 24: 32-33.
In the April 15, 2010 issue of the Watchtower said of Jesus, He evidently meant that the lives of the annointed, who were on hand when the sign began to be evident in 1914 would overlap with the lives of other annointed ones who would see the start of the Great Tribulation.
To refresh your memory on our current understanding let's have Brother Splane explain that chart again that summarized the details of this generation."
[and the drivel continues.]
'...now, just for the sake of argument, let us assume that Brother Russell, Brother Knorr, Brother Franz and every other Watchtower leader down to our present day, including all seven current members of the Governing Body were all complete knuckleheads ... it would be easy to understand why so many teachings and beliefs have been doctored, adjusted, manipulated, revised and removed...'
