They prophecied that things would happen or they stated that they HAD happened and all the while, they claim that the words of the WT are God's words, not mans.<quoted text>
I know the article. They got it wrong. That's not actually a false prophecy.
They gave dates for a fake "presence" of Jesus that is invisible. THAT was a specific falsehood that was WARNED about in the Bible and those who the warning was given about were called false prophets, false christs and false teachers.
" For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
Jesus was clear and the WT false prophet/teacher/christ has been trying to muddy it up for over 100 years now.
They have no excuse and YOU trying to redefine false prophecy doesn't save you or them from this direct description in the bible which you also claim to follow.
