    Suposedly babylon the great lost her power and influence over the people and government rulers back in 1919. Flash forward to today the Russian orthodox church is behind the banning of witnesses in russia. Yet another failed prophecy! Have these guys gotten anything right?! Ha

    It is funny that we no longer hear about the fall of Babylon the Great occurring in 1919. Does the Wt still believe this? Or is this old light?

    Technically: 1918.

    Likely many things: it happened invisibly!

    I think you have misunderstood a bit. Babylon the Great is said to fall at the beginning of the Great Tribulation, in other words a future event.

    The 1919 fall was that it lost its power over the preaching capacity of the JWs. It had no power over them thereafter in the sense of being able to prevent the preaching. So bans cannot prevent, because preaching is then done underground.

    "...it lost its power over the preaching capacity of the Jw's...it had no power...prevent the preaching..."

    Bollocks...Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, Emerates, Iraq, Afganistan, among others where these 7 cowards and their worshippers won't show their faces lest they get their fat asses set aflame. They won't go there for all the oil in the middle east leave alone preach! In 1919 it was the exact same situation.

    Is there any evidence that preaching is being done underground? In these countries. Lastly there IS no power to the JW preaching. THEY CANT STAND UP TO INTELLIGENT AND FACTUAL EXAMINATION OF THEIR DOCTRINES AND CULTIC PROPAGANDA. THEIR PREACHING WORK IS AN EFFORT IN FUTILITY.
