Looking back I now understand the statement "There's no such thing as a coincidence."
I recall that in the mid-1990s we were all expecting the Great Tribulation to start at any moment. Every tragedy in the world was linked to the End of Days. Just about the time the clock was going to hit 00:00 the WBTS pulls a rabbit out of its hat - Overlapping Generations. The Governing Body, the referees of our life, put time back on the clock and set the clock to ??:??PM.
I remember how people left the organization over this and couldn't comprehend it at that time. Mostly because I was a kid just out of high school. No it all makes sense and I can see the man behind the curtain.
