How often have we heard JWs (and Christians in general) speak about how “God will step in SOON and fix earths woes”
A thought came to mind that I would love to calmly say to the person that says we should “wait on god”
If your child looks up at you with big eyes, and a pained look on his face and says “daddy, I’m so hungry. May I have something to eat please?” And your reply is “yes - soon”.
Your little boy then asks “when daddy- I’m starving”
Then you dont feed him for 4 days ; and yet reason- “that was soon- it was sooner than next year- what’s his problem?”
What sort of parent would we be?
So God says “Soon” and yet never says “when”
