    Just installing Watchtower Library 2005. License agreement reads in part;
    "Watchtower Library is a research tool for Jehovah's Witnesses, not for the public or for institutions such as schools or libraries."
    Yes folks, it may be full of "life saving knowledge" but whatever you do do not share it with the public!

    Don't want all those great little quotes getting out into the world now do we.
    Pretty interesting that the Society has secret publications. By secret I mean books and literature that isn't available to everybody, but instead only to people who fill a certain rank in the organization. It goes well with their idea that they are the only people who noticed Jesus come to power as king in 1914. As much as they want to deny it, they are a pretty secretive religion.

    I think they forgot to address that apostates tell a lot of half-truths which includes saying that they're Jehovah's Witnesses :D

    Yah , they don't want all those pearls of wisdom being thrown in front of us swine , at least if there isn't anything in it for them . I wonder what the "suggested" donation is for one of those ? Funny how an organization will do anything and everything to avoid paying taxes on their publication but but will always want what they feel the publication is worth before letting people have it . It's free but remember it's not that free.....LOL

    Doesn't it also say somewhere that you can only have it if you are an active witness? I remember "Quotes" having to destroy his copy of it as he was no longer one. Kwin

    This is interesting that you cannot donate it to a public library. I have checked the public library in my area and there are several WT publications that I know were donated by JWs. I guess hard copies are okay.

    That's because true bible-based wisdom appears to be bullsh!t to the great unwashed.

    Like the Bible, Watchtower publications can only be properly understood when a deeply-dipped Dub is present to explain away all the errors and inconsistencies.

    We're talking high level spiritual stuff here.

    LOL natas --- Hey looky they even give you all the answers to the questions for every paragraph . Aren't they just so special . I don't even have to think . That's the way I used to do it most of the time anyway was read the question before the paragraph was read and look for the answer . I'd get stumped some times and I think it was obvious I didn't prepare . Really most of the stuff is like 3rd grade level anyway . I can even remember the 10minutes spent on why God allows evil in the world . What a deep discussion that was ...........................
