Like you say, If everybody else can be wrong," why can't you be wrong? How do you know the feeling you say you have of being one of the 144,000 is not just your own feeling? There is nothing in the scrolls that says humans will know who is, or is not of the 144,000. That whole thing is a Watch Tower teaching..."Only 144,000 will go to heaven." That is not true. God has taken others to heaven. The number 144,000 is a perfect number. it does not mean what the Watch Tower says it means. Jehovah did not say, "Read the scriptures." He said, "Reason on the scriptures." The difference between reading, and reasoning is like night, and day. Anybody can read scripture. They would have to reason on it to get an understanding. Jehovah said he would blind the eye of the un-believer...he would not let them be able to reason what is written. Without Jehovah's help, we cannot understand scriptures.
