So Tell Us What It Was, Then--Was It Just YOUR OPINION?
By Terry Walstrom
Question for the "spokesmen" otherwise known as Jehovah's Witness' Governing Body.
How shall we identify the already published teaching which is now obsolete, adjusted, corrected and NOT TO BE USED for current teaching?
I know you prefer to slough it off as Old Light because there is still "Light" in that phrase. But, a close examination would prove that incorrect too.
For example, when J.F.Rutherford gave a series of sermons followed by publication and dissemination of his MILLIONS NOW LIVING WILL NEVER DIE message it was thought important enough to spread around the entire world!
Millions Now Living Will Never Die went hand in hand with identifying 1925 as an all important date of prophetic significance: the resurrection of faithful men of old!
Today's current teachings have changed all that, nullified it, made it obsolete and unworthy of consideration by teachers or students of the bible.
So, tell us WHAT IT WAS, then---was it just OPINION? Was it a human mistake wrongly presented as Jehovah's teaching? Was it speculation, guesswork, conjecture? Was it nonsense start to finish?
And while we are asking questions...
Do you have any words of wisdom explaining why Jehovah approved wrong teaching?
And if Jehovah did not approve....what business did Rutherford or the Watchtower Society have convincing so many sheeplike ones it was THE TRUTH?
Is there any personal liability for false teaching?
Even though Rutherford's teaching was emphatically proved an error---why did the Watchtower continue to break off a piece of it and use for decades AS THOUGH it were prophetic truth? I'm talking about the now famous failed "generation" teaching that died a horrible, slow death!
WHAT DO WE CALL OLD WATCHTOWER TEACHINGS THAT WERE WRONG?
IF THEY WEREN'T CORRECT BUT WERE BELIEVED AND TAUGHT DOOR TO DOOR does that make the door to door ministry a WASTE of time?
Please, tell us--enlighten us--correct us and adjust our thinking LIKE YOURS. Say something---anything, like Ghostbusters we're ready to believe you!
If it wasn't False Prophecy...
if it wasn't a Lie...
if it was eager enthusiasm gone off the rails misidentified.......
ARE YOU WILLING TO LABEL CURRENT TEACHING as to what per cent is the same guesswork vs Jehovah's directing His organization?
Is it 90/10
Is it 80/20
Is it 70/30
Is it 60/40
Is it 50/50
Or will it all end up 0/0 JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE YOU'VE EVER PRINTED?
