January, 1989

The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our 20th century." (w89 1/1 12 "The Hand of Jehovah Was With Them" [as originally published in the Watchtower magazine]).

Rewritten

"The apostle Paul was spearheading the Christian missionary activity. He was also laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our day." (w89 1/1 12 "The Hand of Jehovah Was With Them" [as it appears in Watchtower bound volumes & CD-ROMs])

As printing is reduced it will become easier to rewrite all the embarrassing statements online that never materialised.

That is EXACTLY ... and I mean EXAXCTeLLY .. the same job that Winston Smith had in the George Orwell Book "1984".

THE BOOK "1984" WAS A WARNING ... IT WAS  NOT INTENDED TO BE USED AS A SCRIPT!

You are thankful for the covering up of falsehoods ? If the"spirit directed organisation" gets it wrong one has to ask, where was the spirit?

If @JW Insider didn't have to keep messing with 607 BCE, they probably wouldn't have to rewrite anything!

If you don't want the corrections, when the updates come in to the computer, you can tell it No.  And keep your bound volumes.

I also noted at the annual meeting that no one seems inclined to shake the foundations, as one of them said: 'if people can't see conditions today and realize how deep we are into the time of the end, well....' or something like that.

...then they must must have spent the last ten years in a coma... [or something to that effect]

Of course, this could have slightly more effect if we hadn't been saying almost exactly the same thing for the last 138 years and counting.

You really, REALLY need to seriously read George Orwell's book "1984" to understand what this conversation is REALLY about.

Oh, for crying out loud, you do not!

1984 is about a world of 3 totalitarian states, each marionettes pulled by sinister people at the top, who permit no deviation from dictated 'realities', and who physically torture anyone who strays, (in some graphic detail) and then kills them even after they readjust.

Only the most paranoid nutcase would apply it to anything having to do with the Christian congregation.

Because you are COMPLETELY clueless as to the lessons that can be learned from the Classic Book "1984" by George Orwell ... as many AGENDA driven people are ... you are doomed to repeat the lessons of history you did not, and cannot discern.

My guess is that you DID NOT read the book ... that you only saw the movie. 

If you DID read the book, you had no comprehension of what was really going on, or what it was REALLY about, as you have demonstrated about almost every post I have ever made, here.

In the Book, Winston Smith does NOT die.

If he had been killed, the State would NOT have triumphed.  The goal of the State was to reduce him to a totally obedient slave, where even in his innermost thoughts ... he loved BIG BROTHER. 

They were successful in this... THEY WON ... and he lost.

His personality had been SO DESTROYED that even suicide was not an option available to him.

He had been figuratively killed, as his capacity for independent thought  had been COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY erased.

THE BOOK "1984"  WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A WARNING ... NOT A SCRIPT.

Big Brother spent years monitoring Winston Smith, and spent a lot of time and effort to 're-educate him" so he would be an effective tool in rewriting history, as we are dong now by going back and CHANGING Watchtower statements of many years ago, in all electronic versions. 

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WINSTON SMITH'S JOB WAS WHEN HE WAS WORKING FOR HIS EQUIVALENT OF BETHEL DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY REVISIONISM ....... THE "MINISTRY OF TRUTH".

They could have shot him in 3/8 of a second ... but that would not have been the "loving thing to do".

He had to be publicly CRUSHED and his mind obliterated.

After all, his destruction as an individual  was accomplished by the "MINISTRY OF LOVE".

THE BOOK "1984"  WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A WARNING ... NOT A SCRIPT.

"1984" was written just after World War II, when with fire, and blood and steel global tyranny at the hand of the Nazis was just barely averted, and at GREAT cost ... yet the Soviet Union was in it's ascendancy, and was actively building a civilization based on the horrors exemplified in the book "1984".

The reason this book is studied, to the best of my knowledge in EVERY good Public High School in the United States, is that we learn to recognize that "Ministrys of TRUTH" are not what they are are labeled, and neither are Ministrys of LOVE".

It is not even unusual that tyranny always adopts the same methods ... it has been so since there were tribal witch doctors running the local "theocracy" ... and it is true now across a BROAD SPECTRUM of human organization and experience.

Hence the expression ... "Wolves in Sheep's Clothing"

Thank you for that Video ... some GREAT ideas. 

in 2012 I had four Huskies ... unfortunately, since then three have died. 

I have accumulated dogs since then and have six now ... but only one Husky.

    • Somewhere around 1995 a recruiter called me up and wanted me to go to work at the World Trade Center Towers.  He said I could live several states away, and commute in, and that there was a train station in the bottom of the World Trade Center, and I would never even have to go to a "surface street".   A four hour commute did not bother me at all, as I am a compulsive reader, and had a long list of unread books. The money was fabulous, and it was a great job... but it seemed to me that the place was a fire trap. I even considered taking a reserve parachute, and a shot gun with slugs, to shoot out the window, and parachute to the street below, in case of a fire.  I know it takes about 400 feet to get line stretch on the suspension lines of a parachute, and before that, a parachute is merely decorative. So, I would have needed about 600 feet for a successful deployment. I calculated the odds six ways from Sunday, and decided not to take the job. September 11, 2001, I knew I had made the right decision.

    • Sanders is a guy that thinks Socialism ... a system that has failed every time it has ever been tried, when the Socialists run out of OTHER PEOPLES' MONEY, and went along with the Hildabeast, when she rigged the Democrat Primary election against him. That speaks for his credibility. Zero
