The recently distributed tract "You are cordially invited to attend the 'Deliverance at Hand!' DC of JWs" invited people to mail in a coupon requesting the publication "What Does the Bible Really Teach?" (as if they'd know!).
The coupon had two check boxes:
- Without obligation, I request a copy of the book What Does the Bible really Teach?
- Please contact me concerning a free home Bible Study.
Given that the coupons would be mailed to local congregations with a covering letter from the Branch requesting that the householder be visited with the book and the offer of a home bible study, was there really any difference between the two question? Of course, the
poor sucker (householder) wouldn't know that, but the local dubs would.
So were they being dishonest? Surely not!
Yet how many other times do we remember their corporate dishonesty?
