Now I am further confused by the WTS.
In the March 15, 2015 Watchtower magazine, I read of the Parable of the Ten Virgins:
"Clearly, Jesus intended the parable recorded at Matthew 25:1-13 as counsel and a warning to his anointed followers. ... [Jesus] gave this parable to admonish all his anointed followers in the last days to 'keep on the watch'.” (page 13).
But in the February 15, 2014 magazine, I read:
"Since 1935, millions of people have allowed the remnant
to ‘bring them to righteousness.’ These loyal companions of the anointed
Christians have purified their lives, becoming spiritual virgins. These “virgin
companions” of the bride have dedicated themselves to Jehovah and have proved themselves
to be faithful subjects of the Bridegroom-King. The remnant of the bride class have been particularly grateful to these “virgin companions” for their zealous
help in preaching." (pages 11-12)
Their "bride" is their 144,000, their "anointed followers". In the 2015 article, the warning about the virgins is to the "anointed" (even though the anointed are the "bride"). But in the 2014 article, the "millions of JWs" are the spiritual virgin companions of the bride.
It's a good thing I don't take any of this seriously.
