Just overheard this after meeting . . .
The annual meeting just finished, and here's a conversation I overheard from two gushing JWs:
They said we're so close!
Well if the Governing Body says it, it must be true.
I'm this close to pulling my hair out. 😫
Isn't that the standard conversation after annual meetings and District Assemblies?
I was told this in 1991 when that infamous watchtower that was corrected for bound volumes said the end would be before the end of the century. Same old same old rinse repeat and drink the cool aid
Stillajwexelder... wasn't that a 1989 WT ?
Pretty sure it was 1969, the infamous “soon to be completed in this 20th century” quotethat was later changed
Go back to Charles Taze Russell in 1879.
The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our 20th century." (w89 1/1 12 "The Hand of Jehovah Was With Them" [as originally published in the Watchtower magazine]).
"The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our day." (w89 1/1 12 "The Hand of Jehovah Was With Them" [as it appears in Watchtower bound volumes & CD-ROMs])
So sad to see so many people get brainwashed into a state of cognitive disillusionment from reality but then again that was the WTS's intent to get its literature circulated and distributed, the key word being EXPLOITATION.
There you have it. 1989, for the win
I guess some things haven't changed since 1989 when I left.
