Jehovah’s Witnesses are most well-known for their door-to-door preaching, denial of the trinity,accurate end times prophecies and denial blood transfusions (their way of not growing too large).
Since its inception, the Watch Tower Society has taught that humanity is experiencing the last days and made attempts of END OF THE WORLD predictions at least 7 times (I guess the more times you try the closer you will get????)
The Watchtower later stated that it “regretted” the expectations that had been raised regarding 1975 by “persons having to do with the publication of the information.” Heck – why did all the sheep faithfully read the publications in the first place?
Rather than come out and admit that the Watchtower was a false prophet…it was much easier to lay the blame on the sheep (and their raised expectations) They should have received the dates WITHOUT expectation.
Of course blaming others is always the BEST escape route – you save face, and come out all sparkly and respectable.
We prefer blaming others too and read without expectation folks!
