I guess i will break down and buy one.
I never really understood the whole "generation" thing when it first got changed. At that point in my JW "life," I wasn't really doing a whole lot of studying, so I didn't really understand the difference. Now it's so obvious why so many people left after that. *shakes head*
Almost finished. :)
Wolfgirl, the "generations" change went right over my head too. I became a JW in 1993, right around the time that they got real quiet about the 1914 generation. I had no idea how they had beat the "ARMAGEDDON MUST COME BEFORE THE GENERATION THAT SAW THE EVENTS OF 1914 PASSES AWAY - GOD'S WORD SAYS SO!!!!!" drum for decades, it'd be comical if it wasn't so sad.
I'm afraid to read it
i wish i could order one anonymously for my family but I'm afraid they wouldnt read it and suspect that I sent it and of course that would be the end of that... forever
So, I get a phone call from Border's. My copy of "Gentile Times Reconsidered" (by COJ) has arrived.
So, I grilled her about my other orders and she looks them up. One is available in PAPERBACK!!! So, she orders it and checks for ISOCF. I just got back from the store with Gentile Times and BOTH Ray Franz books are now on order.
Some purist checked the listings the first time for hardback only, I guess.
An excellent read!!!! Sure helped me to see the troof about the TruthTM!!!!
I'm up to the part about the 1975 b.s. thing, and going into justifying it....
The book is absolutley amazing.
They are not god's prophets. I am feeling more and more free by the day...
I feel exactly the same way, shamus. "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."
I loved the part that let us know who translated the NWT, and exactly how much knowledge of Hebrew and Greek he had. :)
