Keeping up with new light is not easy. Consider this. As most of you now know, the WTBTS has published an article in the Awake March 2002 about Earthquakes and admitted that there has been no increase in them since 1914. However, the Reasoning Book and other publications have not been updated with this information. So when a JW gives a talk from the platform they still give out old light ? even elders. I actually find it amusing. Most witnesses have still not grasped the generation change and can not speak about it from the platform or door to door. The Greatest Man book is also way out of date. There is a page with missiles and stuff like that. In the gospel of Luke it talks about the signs of the heavens and also the roaring of the sea and its agitation -this once meant not that long ago ballistic missile submarines being stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. New light says the signs in the heavens are from God not from man. Roaring of the sea and its agitation now means the turbulent sea of mankind.
Yet I still here most JWs talking about old light from the platform and on the doors.
Why is this so? My take is that the religion is so confusing that very few but the most serious students can keep up with it ? also very expensive for the society to publish new publications updated with new light. It also gives the society plausible deniability and a good way out I f problems occur ? BTW it is elders also who struggle to keep up. I still know loads who say vindicate his name rather than the official sanctify his name.
What do you all think?
