The Watchtower, 01 September, 1922 - notice, also that the WBTS claimed that the 1925 date was 'fixed by the law God gave to Israel'.
Apparently the 'god' of the WBTS doesn't know 'his' laws and made yet another mistake!
It is as well that Noah did not have to rely on the WBTS to supply the information on which to base his ship-building with the associated planning, or the whole human race would have drowned in the Great Flood!
Jehovah's Witnesses had more reason - 'or as much' - to believe this 1925 date as Noah!?
Were Jehovah's Witnesses told to stop talking about 1925?
Did anyone have 'authority, excuse, or cause' to 'cease talking' about 1925?
What date was 'definitely settled' in Scripture?
What was the prophesied response of the nations to this date?
Below is the 1975 Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses, 1974 ed., p194 where the WBTS wrote:
"In time, a direct contribution was made for the purpose of constructing a house in San Diego for Brother Rutherford's use. It was not built at the expense of the Watch Tower Society. Concerning this property, the 1939 book Salvation stated: 'At San Diego, California, there is a small piece of land, on which, in the year 1929, there was built a house, which is called and known as Beth-Sarim."
Why did the WBTS write - in 1975 - that Beth-Sarim was constructed for 'Brother Rutherford's use' when they were clearly claiming, in the years before and after its construction, that it was built for 'The Princes'?
