I think a lot of the current JW`s dont believe Armageddon is coming soon , and that is the reason the numbers of the Annointed keep going up.
They seem to reason that if the big "A" doesnt come in their lifetime they will hedge their bets by claiming to be of the annointed class and partake at the Memmorial Celebration.
Also in the years leading up to 1975 JW`s were almost running around the territory placing Mags and dropping off brochures at as many houses that they could .
Their was a real sense of urgency in their field ministry.
Today? Very little to no interest in FS ,no urgency to preach ,they are just going through the motions of being a publisher .
In the 60`s /70`s we had "Let God Be True" "The Truth That Leads To Everlasting Life " "Your Will Be Done " and Babylon The Great Has Fallen Gods Kingdom Rules"
Which had something meaty and relevant/applicable /pertinent to that era...... Now they are obsolete...old lite.
Whereas their are no such publications available and applicable to todays "World Events" to inspire and encourage or motivate the R&F.
