The latest Watchtower magazine asks "Are We Living in The "Last Days"?. Now, given that the "last days" are supposed to be a time of
suffering, horror and death, it might be refreshing to find a source of real love and kindness in the world. However, this article ( pg. 7)
identifies "true worshipers" as people who "possess abundant knowledge" and "preach the good news worldwide".
Oddly, nothing is said about love being the identifying mark of true worshipers. Perhaps this is lacking because Jesus is such a minor
and often, perfunctory figure in Watchtower religion. On the other hand, perhaps this critical thought about love is forgotten because
the organization is dominated by a cold hearted old man named Theodore.
In either case, I find it notable that in recent years ( and compared to the Truth book!) Love is treated as an afterthought, a lesser
priority than hawking magazines and knowing the latest false prophecy that the Watchtower comes up with! ( the two
things mentioned in the article).
With apologies to Treasure of the Sierra Madre , " Love?, We don't need no Stinkin' Love!"
