Well, as the Ethiopian gentleman in his chariot said to Philip: "Really, how could I ever do so, unless someone guided me?" (Acts 8:31)

How do you prove from the Bible that 1935 was the year for the selection to heaven stopped due to being filled?

What is the difference between a Catholic appealing to "what the organisation tells him" about December 25 being the date of Jesus' birthday and a JW' appealing to "what the organisation tells him" about the date 1935?

Is it not hypocritical when you chide the "poor deluded Catholic" that his faith cannot find a Bible passage to support it, when the same goes for you and 1935?
The selection to heaven didn't stop in 1935. That was simply the year that many people learned that their feeling of not wanting to go to heaven was not wrong. The organization formally addressed the existence of "other sheep" that had a feeling of wanting to live on the earth (John 10:16). The selection to heaven continued, and is doing so up to this day.

I read that the pope realizes that December 25 is not Jesus' birthday.

We often ask the same question about Charles Taze Russell. Who guided him?
