To list a few things that need refinement:
Schizm knows something that not even the misnamed "faithful and discreet slave" know.
- The "time of the end" hasn't yet begun.
- Jesus' "presence" did not take place in 1914.
- The "appointed times of the nations" did not run out in 1914.
- The 8th King hasn't arrived yet.
- The 7th King is NOT a "dual world power" (the US & Britain). All present-day governments make up the 7th King.
- The last horn that arises on the 4th beast of Daniel 7 is not the 7th King, as thought. It's the 8th King instead.
- "Immortality" is not what the WTS understands it to be.
Yes, and like I said, the list above is only a "few" of the things that need to be, and will be, refined. Why should anyone be astonshished at the thought that someone, such as myself for example, should "know something that not even the faithful and discreet slave does"? Anyone that can't see that Daniel 11:35 speaks of that very thing isn't very attentive. Does that scripture not say that "some of those having insight will stumble" with the result being that a refinement comes about? Should one think that the "some" who stumble would be of the FDS? That would be ridiculous to think that.
And - get this! - it was first announced on an ex-JW site.
Sorry to let the air out of your bag, but this isn't the "first" time this has been spoken about on the Internet. But insofar as it being aired on an "ex-JW site," there's nothing actually wrong with doing such a thing since it provides an additional way for any who might be interested in correctly understanding the meaning of the scriptures, such as Daniel 11:35.
I noticed in reading your "profile" that you said this:
My view is, we humans just don't know what the truth is, and taking a position of knowing closes our minds.
According to you, my mind is closed. I'm afraid that you're quite mistaken. My mind is far from being closed.
Something else you said that is alarming:
Subsequently obtained PhD in Psychology and now a registered clinical psychologist in an adult community setting.
Which just goes to show how that "anybody" can get such an education and become placed in a practice in which people with mental problems will come to for help, not really knowing that the "Doctor" himself has mental problems. I don't mean to say that just to offend you, but you need to hear it. Being the professional that you are I doubt that you will take offense anyway.
I will stay tuned for the big announcement, Schizm.
Yeah, why don't you do that.
