Examining Matthew 24, Part 9: Exposing the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Generation Doctrine as False

For over 100 years, Jehovah’s Witnesses have been predicting that Armageddon is just around the corner, based largely on their interpretation of Matthew 24:34 which speaks of a “generation” that will see both the end and the beginning of the last days.

Examining Matthew 24, Part 8: Pulling the Linchpin from the 1914 Doctrine

From the October, 1907 Watch Tower

One of our forum contributors stumbled across this.  I thought it was an interesting insight into our position on the holding of contrary opinions on matters of a speculative or interpretive nature.  It would be wonderful if we continued to hold this position, but I...

[For the original treatise on the whether 1914 was the start of Christ’s presence, see this post.] I was talking with a long-time friend a couple of days ago who served with me many years back in a foreign assignment.  His loyalty to Jehovah and his organization...

1914—Pulling the Linchpin

Sir Isaac Newton published his laws of motion and universal gravitation in the late 1600s. These laws are still valid today and scientists used them to achieve the pinpoint landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars just two weeks ago.  For centuries, these few laws...

The Last Days, Revisited

[Note: I’ve already touched on some of these subjects in another post, but from a different viewpoint.] When Apollo first suggested to me that 1914 was not the end of the “appointed times of the nations”, my immediate thought was, What about the last days?  It is...
