Jehovah`s Witness/What happened in 1914?



I just got back online tonight, and I got your responses.  Go back to my initial questions.  My challenge was for you to keep believing everything you proved to me.  You showed conclusive evidence from decades of research that you wouldn't change your mind on any of it.  And yet, the July 15 Watchtower changes ALL of it.  The FDS didn't make it clearer, they CHANGED it.  Here are just a few quotes from this publication.  

"For a number of years, we thought that the great tribulation began in 1914 with World War I and that “those days were cut short” by Jehovah in 1918 when the war ended so that the remnant would have the opportunity to preach the good news to all

"Upon further examination of Jesus’ prophecy, however, we perceived that a part of Jesus’ prophecy about the last days has two fulfillments. (Matt. 24:4-22) There was an initial fulfillment in Judea in the first century C.E., and there would be a worldwide fulfillment in our day. That insight led to several clarifications.  We also discerned that the first part of the great tribulation did not begin in 1914. Why not? Because Bible prophecy reveals that the great tribulation will start, not with awar among nations, but with an attack on false religion. Thus, the events that began in 1914 were, not the beginning of the great tribulation, but the “beginning of pangs of distress.”

"Previously, we thought that the judging of people as sheep or goats would take place during the entire period of the last days from 1914 onward. We concluded that those who rejected the Kingdom message and who died before the start of the great tribulation would die as goats—without the hope of a resurrection."

"In the mid-1990’s, The Watchtower reexamined Matthew 25:31, which states: “When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne.” It was noted that Jesus became King of God’s Kingdom in 1914, but he did not “sit down on his glorious throne” as Judge of “all the nations.”

They aren't ready to throw out 1914 completely, however what you supposedly proved to me happened in 1914 simply didn't happen and the FDS states it.  You were completely convinced of it, but now you are going to change your beliefs now without question, the defining characteristic of a cult member.

Hi Adam,

Your quest to prove me wrong or that I belong to a cult is not gonna work for the fact that the FUNDAMENTAL (body of) TRUTH remained the same.

That is:

1) Jehovah is the true Living God. OUR Loving Living God!
2) Jesus is the Son of the Living God. He is our Master and our Leader.
3) 1914 - remained the year and will remain the year when Jesus became King of God's Kingdom and the Gentile times ended.
4) The Faithful and Discrete Slave Class was chosen by Jesus in 1919 to take care of his "DOMESTICS".

then clarified further that:

5) The FDS class will be appointed a second time to take care of "all of Jesus' belongings" - when all of them are gathered to be with him in the heavens.

As for the additional clarification that you've quoted from the July 15 2013 Watchtower (Study Edition), can you please cite to me where I mentioned them in my post?

I'd like to know if I even mentioned 1914 as the start of the GT, or that 'the judging of people as sheep or goats would take place during the entire period of the last days from 1914 onward', etc. As far as I'm aware of this is the only one that I know that's now clarified (from my response to you).

That is:

5) The FDS class will be appointed a second time to take care of "all of Jesus' belongings" - when all of them are gathered to be with him in the heavens.

Now back to my challenge:

please point to me if there's any other timeline other than 1914 when all these "things" started to happen. Back it up with Scriptures if you can.

If you can't, then sorry to say - you failed.

Time is running out Adam.

Now as for cult - a cult has a leader that they follow. Please tell me the NAME of our leader and master then we will see if you have a case.

Also a cult will NOT admit when they make mistakes and abandon the mistakes made. Mistakes like "pagan holiday celebrations, politics, idolatry, trinity, etc".

Did you already abandon false teachings like immortal soul, hell fire, pagan holidays, warfare,trinity doctrine, etc? If you didn't then who is the cult here?  

Jehovah`s Witness
