"MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM"

#1 Post by RR144 » 2 months ago

The following comes from Reprint 4258, which is the October 1908 issue of Zion's Watch Tower. It is a quote from the Washington Post. Remember that the polling numbers are 1908, but it certainly seems that history repeating itself.
"MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM"

"Daily it becomes more manifest that political America is separating into two camps – the Individualists and the Socialists...A new party has been created, and it is not extravagant to intimate that it will poll two million votes next November. It threatens to destroy the Democratic party (though that is a job the Democratic Party has already accomplished to all intents and purposes), and will then strive for the mastery against the Republican Party. That would fetch the new alignment of conservative vs. liberal, of Individualism vs. Socialism. That is what is coming." – Washington Post.

That's not all that's coming, The Great Day of the Lord Almighty is scheduled as well. (Rev 19:12) Of all the Names Jesus has, there is one "written" that no one knows. A Name that can shake the Powers of the Heaven.

Hi RR144,

I was curious what angle your post was taking. What was the point of the quote.

RR144 thanks for putting your post up.

I cannot help but think of the verse below -
Jeremiah 10:23 "I know, LORD, that a man's way of life is not his own; no one who walks determines his own steps".

Indeed, humankind keeps on repeating, never learning from previous mistakes. We end up creating the pattern where we left off decades ago.

Currently the same political situation re the US now as was back then re your post. :mrgreen:

Russell believed that eventually the United States would become a Socialist nation, he believed that Socialism would lead to anarchy and eventually leading for the Kingdom to take over.

Not only that ... but too often they think they can do a better job at it. The United States is heading towards Socialism, and many socialist nations have told them "don't do it, it doesn't work" and yet their response is "you guys did it wrong, we know how to do it."
