Wikipedia needs your help with Eschatology & History of JW's

    There are a number of wikipedia articles which are crappy, and some good writers who care about good neutral articles about JW's could certainly help.

    I'll mention three that could really use some help.

    History of Jehovah's Witnesses

    Eschatology of Jehovah's Witnesses

    Olin R. Moyle

    The articles (aside from the last one) have some detail, but could certainly do with some fleshing out.

    The last article has NO content, but as he is a very important person in JW history, I'm sure will be fleshed out within the context of history.

    What would you like them to say other then it is nothing but a cult!

  • M.J.

    Someone with access to the book, A People for His Name by Timothy White would be a gread candidate.

  • ezra

    your best bet is to contact jehovahs witnesses locally they would be more than happy to share that info with you there is a brochure that give a brief but detailed overview of the history of jehovahs witnesses there is also a book that we use in our studies that discusses more in depth the history of the watchtower society it is called the proclaimers book.ask them theyll help you to fil;l in the gaps of what you know plus there are alot of people that dislike us so its really best to hear from us .dont worry alot of people say terrible things about us but if all you want is that info they wont consider you obligated

    I tried to collect quotes from Watch Tower publications (including the ones you mentioned) and make them available to all interested persons via the internet.

    The Watch Tower rewarded me for my efforts by suing me in Ontario Superior Court.

    My question for you is: do you feel that my telling my story to the public is "saying terrible things about Jehovah's Witnesses"?

    Another question for you: Watchtower and Awake! magazines frequently contain historical information about other religions. How would you react if someone told you, while in field service, "No, I don't want to look at that. Many people say terrible things about the Catholic Church. The people that say these things are controlled by Satan. If you really want to know about Catholicism, you should talk to a priest, or at least, a Catholic, not read in some thin and poorly researched magazine!" Seriously, put the shoe on the other foot and see how it fits.

    Hm, I wonder: Is ezra and PMJ the same guy? They are both relatively new, and the both have horrible grammar and spelling (not that that`s "bad", I`m perfectly pc on dyslexia). Same guy?

  • kristyann

    I noticed that it seems almost every person that comes on here that is still a JW and wants to preach to everyone (but apparently had no problem disobeying the governing body's rules regarding apostate sites) has horrible grammar and spelling. That's a really good point. Are all of the names being used by one person, or are all of them just that dumb?
