Many of us here have commented on the deceitful Friday afternoon video shown at the 2017 RC that discussed 1975.
The video attempted to shift the blame onto congregation members for the fiasco saying, "Some were looking to a certain date as signifying the end of this old system of things."
This same video mentions how, “A few even went so far as selling their homes and quitting their jobs.”
We all know that the WT leadership created this teaching and endorsed it right up to its abject failure.
Now below is the concluding talk given on Sunday at the RC. In the talk, the speaker refers to the late 1960’s and early 70’s saying that, “Back then many of us believed that the end was going to come in 1975.” The speaker admits that he and his family “thought the end could come by 1975.”
He further adds that these expectations caused his mother and brother to start pioneering in 1971, himself in 1972 and his father sold their house in 1973 etc.
