    Here kitty:

    "Another prominent mark of the beast .. is the honoring of the special class, the clergy, with special honors and titles. They are known as Revs., Divines, etc., but Jesus, the divine, said: 'Ye call me Lord and Master, and ye say well, for so I am.' 'Be not ye called Rabbi, neither be ye called Masters, for one is your Master, even Christ, and all ye are brethren (Matt. 23:8). These titles are assumptions fashioned after those of Papacy."
    - Zion's Watch Tower and Herald of Christ's Presence, January 1880, p6-7 - the words are those of Charles Taze Russell, the first President of the Watchtower Society.

    What chaos! A total of 325 Classes (and more may be discovered - my sifting work is not quite completed; I am tarrying awhile), drawn only from the published writings of just the Watchtower's first president (including a handful drawn from his one "posthumous" work) - all OFFICIAL WATCHTOWER SOCIETY PUBLICATIONS. Bear in mind that:
    "God is not the author of confusion" - 1 Cor. 14:33
    And further - all these classes from the same person - the very founder of the Watchtower Society - who attacked the Catholic church for having classes! Here is what Lord Jesus Christ said to men like this shameful founder of the Watchtower Cult:
    "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." - Matthew 7:5
    And here is the clear scriptural warning to brainwashed Jehovah's Witnesses, following as they do an insane, blasphemous, dangerous, wicked, mind-controlling, soul-destroying cult that is based on the teachings of the amazingly presumptuous HYPOCRITE (as proven above) Charles Taze Russell:
    "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
    The Watchtower Society and the Creed of the Jehovah's Witnesses is a CHEAT, a 100% SCAM, a WICKED TRICK, a FILTHY LIE, a BLASPHEMOUS INSULT, a SCANDAL, a FRAUD, a DISGRACE, an ABOMINATION and a DAMNED OUTRAGE from start to finish. Why argue about it?

    See! It is simple, just like the "Good News" viz. that those with Rank numbered 60-100 get destroyed at HAR!-MaggieDonAndOnAndOn or never get brought back.

  • bikerchic

    Actually signing ones name and ascribing a "class" to it is something that is used on the 'Net. I've seen it used on other sites I've frequented over the years.

    So once again the Dubs or X-dubs don't corner the market on this trend either.

    Of course, you have no idea whether those people using the 'class thing' have visited this site or other ex-Witness sites. Since, as I mentioned, I've been kinda doing this for around 5 years, many a person has wandered in and out. Don't believe me? Go to the members section and see how many names you DON'T recognize.

    It's absolutely an Ex-JW thing. I oughtta know. I invented it.

  • misanthropic

    ::so who started the...''of the ------------- class'' thingy????

    I've always wondered that myself...
