Clyde Snobelen, a former Jehovah’s Witnesses asked the Watchtower Society brilliant questions:
Paul said, “For as often as YOU eat this loaf and drink this cup, YOU keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he arrives.”(1 Corinthians 11:29 NWT) If Christ arrived in 1914:
- Why do the Jehovah’s Witnesses continue to partake of the bread and the wine?
- Should they not have stopped in 1914?
Note that: Watchtower made these claims:
“Surely there is not the slightest room for doubt in the mind of a truly consecrated child og God that the Lord Jesus is present and has been since 1874″(WT January 1, 1924 p.5)
“To understand the events concerning the Lord’s second presence from 1874 to 1914 requires one to be spiritually minded… “(Creation, 1927 p. 312).
“ The Scriptural proof is that the second presence of the Lord Jesus Christ began in 1874 AD” (Prophecy, 1929, p. 65-66)
” … the second coming of Christ dates from the fall of the year 1914″(What is Truth? 1932)
” Jesus has been present since 1914″(The Golden Age magazine, 1930 p. 503)
” Christendom will be completely destroyed by October 1914″ (Zion’s Watch Tower, January 15, 1892, p. 1355)
Recommend site: Witnesses for Jehovah, a site full of resources from former Jehovah’s witnesses. I love reading their testimonies.
