@SBF - yes, they do. Every one of the points you wrote is correct.
But, what does this mean with regard to the current crop of GB and their outrageous beliefs and demands?
Doesn't it mean that, by the JWs' own logic, the current GB's proclamation of Armageddon coming soon isn't definite, and therefore is unreliable? That JWs shouldn't set store by what the GB is telling them? That JWs do indeed have time to go to college, to university, and to live their lives in 'this system of things'?
The WTS wants to have their cake and eat it. I won't let them do this.
