    "...there will be a resurrection of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and other faithful ones of old ... we may expect 1925 to witness the return of these faithful men of Israel from the condition of death, being resurrected and fully restored to perfect humanity and made the visible, legal representatives of the new order of things on earth.... Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection."Millions now living will never die," (1918), Page 89

    This was inserted into Crisis of Conscience.

    But how can one argue with an original copy of a publication they printed at HQ?

    But why would an active JW want to argue with you over the date 1925? They will simply dismiss it as old understanding.

    Anyway, they have mentioned in their publications that they were wrong about 1925:

    Watchtower 1993, 11/1, para 18-20:

    Further, the widely circulated booklet Millions Now Living Will Never Die presented the view that in 1925, God’s purposes regarding the restoring of the earth to Paradise and the resurrecting of the faithful ones of old would begin to be fulfilled.

    The year 1925 came to its conclusion, but the end was not yet! Ever since the 1870’s, Bible Students had been serving with a date in mind —first 1914, then 1925. Now, they realized that they must serve for as long as Jehovah wishes.

    Well...you could point to the words Undisputable, and facts etc the use in the book to prove their truth. Then ask, if it would have been acceptable then to dispute the Undisputable? And then, how is it now? Can we dispute the Undisputable gb?

    Up through the 1980's they were still pointing to that quote as a long term prophecy for our day. Little did I know it was about 1925
