A cornerstone teaching of the Jehovah’s Witness faith is the idea that Jesus began ruling over the Earth in 1914, when the “last days” before Armageddon are said to have commenced.
The fact that this key event supposedly happened “invisibly” is often used as an excuse by Witnesses to explain away the lack of any evidence, especially as the passage of time steadily erodes the credibility of the teaching.
But now it seems the evidence has been there along. We just weren’t paying enough attention!
According to Governing Body member Stephen Lett (who last month appeared in the inaugural JW Broadcasting episode), the evidence that Jesus has been ruling in the heavens for the past 100 years is more compelling than the evidence for “gravity, electricity” and “wind!”
The above footage, recently posted on YouTube having been filmed at a recent international convention, will make awkward viewing for thinking Witnesses who desperately want to be able to take their leaders seriously.
In this video, Lett exposes himself yet again as a bumbling simpleton with a tenuous grasp on reality.
The evidence for electricity is in front of his very mouth as he utters his senile words into a microphone that converts his voice into electrical signals that can manifest themselves in speakers all over the auditorium.
The evidence for gravitational force can be found in the fact that his feet are planted firmly on the convention platform rather than spiraling into the air and ascending into the upper atmosphere together with the rest of his body, clothes and gaudy pinky ring.
And the fact that wind is similarly invisible to the human eye in no way brings its existence into any doubt, as any sailor, meteorologist or wind turbine engineer will confirm.
Contrast all of the above with the ridiculous claims made by Watchtower about 1914, and the absurdity of Lett’s words is painfully apparent. One can only hope that as many Witnesses as possible are made familiar with the above video which, though succinct, perfectly showcases the intellectual vacuum at the apex of the Watchtower organization.
