    Colossians 1:23 - "The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it." (New Living Translation)

    And shortly after Paul wrote this, the end which Jesus spoke about took place - in 70 C.E.

    Even the org agrees that it had already been preached "worldwide":

    w74 1/15 p. 61 - What did the apostle Paul mean when he indicated that the ‘good news was being preached in all creation under heaven’? - Col. 1:23. "...that the preaching was being pushed to all parts of the earth under heaven."

    The good news of the Kingdom is described in detail at 1 Corinthians chapter 15. The JWs don’t preach this good news but another one. Galatians chapter one describes what’s happens to these ones that preach another gospel.

    ...for a witness to all the nations..

    It bears out the word “nations”, signifies:

    1. Etnicities

    2. Tribes.

    3. Countries

    Joboland’s awaiting-with-bated-breath Jollies need to understand this about their made up religion and its made up teachings.

    Out of 7 billion peoples on this planet they haven’t managed to reach even a quarter of the worlds population - if that. As mentioned in earlier posts no one has heard of them in most of China and India which makes up half the population of the world. N Korea, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, the Emerates, to name but a few. And they keep touting the ...end is around the corner...

    what is the song they sing? .”... boldly we preach and boldly we teach..... “ . If ever they was a cowardly bunch of poorly schooled idiots, who run at the first sign of a rational debate pointing out the flaws in their teachings, then Jobo’s mighty mouse brigade wins the rats soiled underwear! Be so bold oh courageous preachers of your desert god to enter the Muslim countries mentioned and try spewing your meaningless preachers bilge .

    They do no work, walk like zombies distributing pamphlets which nobody wants, have the worst reputation as workers under another dubs employment, sloth and laziness marks their preaching abilities can’t bear to have truth about their religion told to them . And these are an imaginary gods chosen people! As for the preaching work- they have an excuse too! Matt10: 23!

    How ironic that they live in an imaginary world full of lies, deceit, unacknowleged pedophilia and an irrational fear of the real world!!

    The two scriptures mentioned in the O.P are CONTRADICTIONS !

    This troubled me when the '97 explanation came out, which was to excuse the fact that the Org was no longer expanding in a Geographic sense.

    As I said to an Elder at the time, "Jesus' words are unequivocal in both cases." Of course he offered no explanation.

    You cannot have it both ways, it almost seems as though the Gospels have not reported the words of Jesus with accuracy. (LOL)

    "Have we not promoted the Watchtower preached all over the world in your name?

    Have we not built branch offices created new congregations in your name?"

    Looking at the map of the places Paul went, and as impressive a feet as it was, he probably genuinely thought he had preached in all the world.

    Because they didn't know about the Americas and Australia, New Zealand . Polynesia, Indonesia, China, Antartctica, Iceland etc existed back then.

    Why didn't God tell them?

    In WT theology THEY ARE the Kingdom.

    So, they have preached faith in themselves as Gods channel of communication. In their own deluded minds, they have preached the “kingdom” in all the inhabited earth.

    Of course this is a gospel unknown to the apostles and so they fall under the curse promised in:

    Galatians 1:8-10 King James Version (KJV)

    8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    Its very simple, the WTBS organization cherry picked the Matt 24:14 for themselves, so they could push their own financial agenda.

    The primary goal from their start was to become a huge, money making, publishing house. Their goal was to use free labor to not only print the publications, but to actually go out and peddle these publications for profit.

    Thats why ADVERTISE, ADVERTISE, ADVERTISE, was their motto. Let the R&F think they are Gods chosen people, fulfilling scripture, and they will peddle our books and mags for free.

    This whole aura of preaching to the entire world, was created by the WTBS, and simply to sell books. The major emphasis for most of the life of the BORG has always been the preaching work. It was pushed predominantly in 1st world countries, Christian countries, and where their message would gain maximum dollar amounts, and better reception.

    Going into other nations were tests to see how it would be received, and in turn, how financially viable it would be for Mother WTBS. If it wasnt, then it was barely pushed anymore in those countries.

    Fast forward too todays, modern BORG, and even though we are FURTHER INTO THE LAST DAYS, where the preaching work should be GROWING and EXPANDING all over the EARTH, its NOT growing. In fact, its quite the opposite.

    The preaching and publishing work, has been relegated to "second school" status. NO more pioneer movements, NO more intelectual door discussions, nope, instead stand at a cart, and say nothing, and push a few 6 page magazines.

    The reason why?, because its NO longer financially profitable. It was never about fullfilling scripture, it was about filling pockets. After the publishing business died, then they became a real estate business. Thats when they pushed the "quick builds".

    Fortunately, now, BOTH businesses have failed for them. Hence, we are finally witnessing the ending of this Cult/business, and its about time.
