Wine and the Watchtower

This photo has always impressed me. A fantastic view from the International Space Station. Locals will recognise our prime wine growing areas of the Wairarapa, Blenhiem, Nelson, Waipara and Canterbury.

It also reminds me – I saw some god botherers in our street the other day. They stand out like a sore thumb, don’t they?

However, they must have got the message. They seem to have stopped knocking on my door.

  1. BOO!!

    Just kidding, as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses I like the joke which only works because it is part of the popular culture now to understand that Jehovah’s Witnesses will take their message to the ends of the earth.. and some.

    It’s good news of a better worlrd, you should listen up!

  2. Yeah, right!

    I guess you can’t see it from the perspective of the person at home whose peace is disturbed by bigots.

    WE have a note on our door warning such salespeople to leave without knocking.

  3. Failed end-of-the-world predictions.

    1914, 1915, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975 and 1994, etc. were other dates that the Watchtower Society (WTS) or its members predicted. Since late in the 19th century, they had taught that the “battle of the Great Day of God Almighty” (Armageddon) would happen in 1914 CE. It didn’t.

    The next major estimate was 1925. Watchtower magazine predicted: “The year 1925 is a date definitely and clearly marked in the Scriptures, even more clearly than that of 1914; but it would be presumptuous on the part of any faithful follower of the Lord to assume just what the Lord is going to do during that year.”

    The Watchtower Society selected 1975 as its next main prediction. This was based on the estimate “according to reliable Bible chronology Adam was created in the year 4026 BCE, likely in the autumn of the year, at the end of the sixth day of creation.”

    They believed that the year 1975 a promising date for the end of the world, as it was the 6,000th anniversary of Adam’s creation. Exactly 1,000 years was to pass for each day of the creation week. This prophecy also failed.

    The current estimate is that the end of the world as we know it will happen precisely 6000 years after the creation of Eve. 9 There is no way of knowing when this happened.

  5. I am a very old man. And during my years of life, I have seen many bad things happened to people who make jokes about different religions. Some suffered catastrophics diseases and died in a lot of horrible pain. It’s like life has show me, what will happen to me, if I my behavior will be negative against religion, especially, those Jehova’s Witnesses. I am 100% sure,they are the only religion that proclaim the truth. If you don’t believe this, take a shot, and check them out. Study w/them and compare the other religions. You will be surprised of the things you will discover that today you don’t know. Any way,…you will remember this words at the end of your days. You surely will know who’s right and who was wrong in this crazy world. By the way,…I am NOT a member of the Jehova’s Witness religion, but I do respect them very very much!!! and recommended as the best chosen religion, if you go for the best, and for the TRUTH!
