Some claim that Jehovah selected the JWs, but that would mean he was actively supported a false prophet. I just can't come to terms with the thought that Jehovah was guiding them when Luke 21:8 specifically says to stay away from anyone who claims the "due" time is near (timelines, dates, etc.) And since they have made claims since day one that the due time is near, what does this mean for JWs place in God's plan? When you consider this along with 2 Thessalonians 2, I conclude that Jehovah's Witnesses made themselves God's people by their own will via their Christian lifestyle, not that Jehovah chose them and this led them to truths they teach, because if he can do that, why wouldn't he stop the 1914 nonsense? Unless he deliberately allows them to believe the lie like 2 Thessalonians 2 says, but Jehovah cannot be tried with evil things. Maybe Jehovah did lead them to all right knowledge, but Satan has somehow managed to keep 1914 alive?
