How dangerous is that superstition?
On th evening of 911 we were at the hall. One very superstitious bro came to where I was and said "I can't wait to get home and hear the death toll". Exact quote. Not a word of a lie. I remember it like yesterday.
I replied to him, "you know there was a lot of brothers working in that building".
His demeanor changed instantly.
Witnesses believe, and Watchtower teaches it in unbending fashion, that earthquakes, war, pestilence and all kind of suffering, and oh yah, planes flying into buildings, is all an "act of God" and a sign to tell the world that Jesus is in town.
Wow! Suffering is Jesus' 'calling card'.
Yea, and this brother was demonstrating openly how simple-minded JWs think about the world. How they think about Jesus. Through the eyes of superstition.
Satan wins another battle.
But not the war.
(ps. If JWs understood correctly what Jesus taught on the Mount of olives, then they would understand that Jesus was fighting this kind of infantile and Satanic poison)
