2114? Why that's just 2 years after
wt on a slide, " 1914's generation is not only overlapping, but also composite.
Composite !? Or Compost ?
jonah'stourguide, very good, in the composition, the compost generation is appropriate, after all the bible speaks of the "fertilizer on the ground"have you actually read, why it is aa composite generation, whether wt likes it or not?
schnell: 2114? Why that's just 2 years after 2012 , or
the due date of the new light wt book release: "God's Kingdom Rules, -still, K is overruled,K is overdue."
The composite generation moves nicht schnell. is a drag.
The reasoning in the opening post is actually very plausible....according to wt thinking!
We have prophet in our midst people!
stuckinarut: "--according to wt thinking!
stuckinarut, ---Wt thinking is stuck in a rut, it really is, one has to use their premises with humour to show how ridiculous it is, but
Even if you would get that straightened out, you still have the talking snake phenomenon unsolved. thank you.
What is the difference between a rut and the grave? -- the depth. if you dont get of the former, in time, you end up in the latter.
The other sheep were not in existence in 1914, but that shouldn't be a problem for the WT writers. Maybe 'this generation' can include an invisible transformation from anointed ones to the OS which occurred in the early 1930s
The other sheep were not in existence in 1914, Listener:
Very good catch! so, Let us look at that in depth. The wt "Other Sheep" are those not sealed, outside the 144 000. aka the Earthly Class. right? That sealing went on at least since Stephen's time, if not Pentecost. so, Those non-1444ks must have existed since then, right? because after all, the 144 000 come out of a greater entity, the 12 Tribes of Rev. 7.--and you can not come out of something that does not exist!, right? The Earthly class has existed since Abel, uninterrupted. so:
wt could come clean in one fell swoop and re-introduce Br. Cornelius as the original Other Sheep, him being " not of this fold ", namely Israel. and most importantly:
Since wt featured the 1918 talk with the certain promise: "* Millions now living will never die" which only could happen to the earthly OS class ( you have to die to go to heaven ), the basis for the declaring of a composite overlapping generation is laid right there . already hidden in the rubble of wt rumblings. ha ha. thank you.

Question to all:
HOW CAN DESCENDANTS OF THE FIRST HUMANS POSSIBLY NOT BE PART OF THE GENERATION LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS?
no matter how you define any of the above terms.? so:
The anointed wt generation not only overlaps with itself, but simultaneously with the Other Sheep, until the anointed die. Then the entrants into paradise will prove to be those of that composite generation, overlapping in all ways, that are truly the last generation, the "anointed" being only a transient visible phenomenon. caveat: speaking in terms of current wt "light", not endorsing.
Thank you Listener for prompting this definition.
These guys are masters at kicking the can down the road.

ha ha, until one kicks the bucket. the big, final can.
