Theme Scripture , James 5 v 8 abbreviated to " You too, exercise patience"
(I guess we know what to expect now)
" How long?" it asks....yes, we have asked that a few times and I am one who reasoned that the time lapse was no longer credible. How can you have an apocalyptic end-time message that has spanned three centuries?
We are told in para 4 that patience is a gift from God, a product of the Holy spirit. So I guess I have lost God's favour........? "Without God's help humans cannot be patient to the degree required"...Hmmmmm.
The aspect that annoys me though is their total lack of responsibility for past failed predictions,
To do otherwise—to wait while complaining and grumbling that Jehovah is not acting fast enough—would be displeasing to our God
No.....We don't say it is God's fault - we say it is YOURS !
They repeat the assertion later in para 20
So even though we face tests and trials, we are determined to show “a waiting attitude.” Yes, at times we might cry out: “How long, O Jehovah?” (Isa. 6:11) But with the strengthening power of God’s holy spirit, each of us is determined to echo the words of Jeremiah: “Jehovah is my share . . . That is why I will show a waiting attitude for him.
The technique here is to impart the view that to complain against the WTS is ,in fact, complaining against God !..... We don't do that. There is no scripture that says that 1914 started the "time of the end" only they said that. Jesus said the time was not known and we should always live in expectation but never tieing it to a certain date or generation.
You said those things Watchtower - don't pass the buck....
