Laugh-out-Loud BS from Insight Book
How would it be possible in 1,000 years to resurrect and educate the billions now in the grave?
Nevertheless, an illustration reveals what a simple, practical thing Jehovah has in mind for mankind. Not to prophesy, but merely for the purpose of illustration, let us assume that those who compose the “great crowd” of righteous persons who “come out of the great tribulation” on this system of things alive (Re 7:9, 14) number about 6,000,000 (about 1/1000 of earth’s present population). Then if, after allowing, say, 100 years spent in their training and in ‘subduing’ a portion of the earth (Ge 1:28), God purposes to bring back three percent of this number, this would mean that each newly arrived person would be looked after by 33 trained ones. Since a yearly increase of three percent, compounded, doubles the number about every 24 years, the entire 20 billion (20,000,000,000) could be resurrected before 400 years of Christ’s Thousand Year Reign had elapsed, giving ample time for training and judging the resurrected ones without disrupting harmony and order on earth.
Makes about as much sense as God changing the mind of Pharaoh continually until he was able to kill a bunch of innocent first born victims that had nothing to do with anything. Isnt the Bible wonderful.
Yes, notice there were NO scriptures used for those hypothesises..?
With God, nothing is impossible.
With religious fanatics/ cult-indoctrinated, and The NY Mets, you gotta believe!
Hmm, so the teachers are overlapping! Maybe this is where they came up with the overlapping partaker idea. All makes sense now!
They must mean love bombed by 33 brainwashed ones.
Even when they're trying to make an illustration they still portray it as if they have some special knowledge.
an illustration reveals what a simple, practical thing Jehovah has in mind for mankind.
Note that they didn't say what Jehovah "might" have in mind. It's stated as if, even though it is only an illustration and not for the purpose of prophesying, they know what god plans on doing.
With God, nothing is impossible
It's impossible for god to raise people from the dead looking exactly the same way as when they were alive!!.
God cannot reproduce the exact same cells once they have died.
This is what I was taught as a jw.
When I was told this as a child I thought to myself, hmmm.....god has limitations.
Also learnt With God, nothing is impossible
excuse me, where can I technicolor yarn!!
The Insight book is a giant pice of crap.
Look a this for insanity. Under Rainbow
Nevertheless, this is the first mention of a rainbow, and if a rainbow had been seen earlier, there would have been no real force in God’s making it an outstanding sign of his covenant. It would have been commonplace, and not a significant marker of a change, of something new.
The Bible does not describe the degree of clarity of the atmosphere just prior to the Flood. But apparently atmospheric conditions were such that, until a change came about when “the floodgates of the heavens were opened” (Ge 7:11), no others before Noah and his family had seen a rainbow. Even today, atmospheric conditions affect whether a rainbow can be seen or not.
