i would like to pinpoint when watchtower made a dramatic backward editorial change in their 31 year old insight on the scriptures, their flagship bible encyclopedia.
below, number 1 quotes the insight book as it appeared in the original release back in june 1988.. 1.
“this is also illustrated by what happened to the cities of sodom and gomorrah and their inhabitants.

the jehovah`s witnesses have long charged christendom`s religions falsely i might add of hiding the name of god jehovah /yahweh from their congregants ,by not using it or putting that name on the back burner so to speak ,and just using it minimally .. i`m just wondering if the jehovah`s witnesses /wtb&ts are actually guilty themselves of doing the very same thing with the name of jesus.. in the nwt of the bible 1984 edition i have in the section bible words indexed they have the name jehovah listed 80+ times ,.
however the name jesus is listed less than twenty times .. while i concede the bulk of the bible is contained by the o.t./hebrew scriptures and the n.t./christian greek scriptures are a smaller portion of the bible jehovah`s witness theology do place a lot more emphasis on jehovah than they do with jesus.. arent they guilty of trying to downplay the role of jesus christ in christianity ?
and exulting the name of jehovah which by the way goes against the christian teaching .phillipians 2:9-11.

do you think he’s a hero?
do you sympathize with him or do you feel he’s really a bad guy?.

this is the circuit assembly hall i attended since childhood.
if you're a jw and you grew up in liverpool, lancashire or manchester then this is the hall you attended.
when i was little i remember the decor inside being red and cream coloured.

so after almost 5 months of not attending meeting, today my husband decided to attend the special talk.
i am sad, frustrated, nervous, but also hopeful that he will see something that he never did before .
lies and manipulation.
