Autor: Włodzimierz Bednarski

poprzednia część nastepna część

At the beginning of our discussion, due to chronicler’s obligation, we will quote almost all publications of The Watchtower Society which were focused on the year 1975. The list includes not only publications containing wide presentation of the matter but also those which just mention the year 1975 on the background of foretold famine or World War III. Everybody who would like to honestly asses the issue of the year 1975 and responsibility of The Watchtower Society for the failed prophecy, should read that material. One should not come to his or her own conclusion on the basis of one or two articles.
