The Jehovah's Witnesses in Crisis: Anxiety and disillusionment sets in as 2014 approaches

The Jehovah's Witnesses in Crisis: Anxiety and disillusionment sets in as 2014 approaches: "The teaching of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society that Armageddon will come before the 'generation of 1914' passes away is causing increased anxiety among Jehovah's Witnesses as 2014 approaches and there are still no clear signs of how and when Jehovah will bring an end to this evil 'system of things.'

According to the teaching that the Jehovah's Witnesses have held for decades, people who were alive in 1914, when Jesus began 'invisible rule' in heaven (an event marked by the outbreak of the first world war), will not die off completely before Jesus 'turns kingdom attention to the earth' and executes judgment on 'enemies of God,' a phrase which, in Jehovah's Witnesses lingo, means essentially everyone of us who have not seen the light and joined the 'Jehovah's only visible organization on earth,' that is, The Jehovah's Witnesses."

  1. The crisis, anxiety and disillusionment may be not quite so severe as you surmise, seeing as the number of JWs are yet rapidly increasing.

    and there are still no clear signs of how and when Jehovah will bring an end to this evil 'system of things.'


    What signs ought one to expect? Might this one do?
