I am happy to let the matter rest there and analyse other areas of JW beliefs , procedure & conduct that I feel constitute a stronger case for criticism. Dozy
Dozy, I am also happy that you are ready to analyze other areas of JW beliefs, procedures and conduct.
The 607 B.C. date, the Bulgarian/ECHR agreements with the WTBTS, the drunken articles that the WTBTS published about the men of Sodom being resurrected, the distorted and convoluted blood and organ transplant policies, the pedophile issues all took a back seat with me because I still believed the Governing Body had been directly appointed by Jesus to spiritually nourish His people no matter what the apostates and their websites claimed to the contrary.
When I got wind of the UN asociation, I didn't believe it for a second even though I had transcripts of documents that indicated WTBTS representatives attended UN meetings. There was NO WAY my beloved organization would even remotely entertain the idea of affiliating with 'the disgusting thing that causes desolation.'
It was all a bunch of lies cooked up in the minds of some crazy and radical people who had an axe to grind with the WTBTS because they had been caught in bed with someone they weren't married to.
After days of anguishing over the 'apostate lies' that were being circulated against the Watchtower Society, I decided to call the Service Department in Brooklyn. You can imagine my disgust and horror when the brother lied to me about the WTBTS's involvement with the UN and denied their association.
It was then, and only then that I realised the WTBTS had indeed been caught in bed whoring with an organization they claim to despise.
That was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. There is a straw that will break his back for you, too.
When that happens and you find that tiny little straw it will change your life forever because it will liberate you from the mental prison the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society has you bound with and within.
