God told us how to identify a false prophet.

    “ However, the prophet who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded him to speak or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die . And in case you should say in your heart: “How shall we know the word that Jehovah has not spoken?” 22 when the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word does not occur or come true, that is the word that Jehovah did not speak. With presumptuousness the prophet spoke it.” Deut. 18:20-22

    Here's my question to you, how would a JW respond to this text in light of ALL the changes the WTS has made to it's doctrines and predictions?

    Is it just me, or is it this simple to figure out how wrong the WTS has been about everything in the Bible?

    Is it just me, or is it this simple

    It's that simple.


    And he said, "Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, `I am he!' (the way, the truth and the life) and, `The time is at hand!' Do not go after them.

    Does it get simpler ? - maybe they should have signs on their foreheads.........oh wait, they do, they have the forehead of a harlot - defiantly unashamed.

    Yes it is that simple, it comes down to two choices

    1) I believe the Bible and trust in Jah and what he says no matter what

    2) I believe man made writings and excuses even if they are repeatedly wrong

    I am going to err on the side of Jehovah and His written Word, it almost makes me wonder if that scripture wasn't written for them specifically. Sad and there are many more points and signs as evidence.

    John 13:34,35 34 I am giving YOU a new commandment, that YOU love one another; just as I have loved YOU , that YOU also love one another. 35 By this all will know that YOU are my disciples, if YOU have love among yourselves.”

    Don't know about your experience but mine was anything but loving. Some of the meanest behavior I have ever seen or experienced, hate to see what they do to someone who wasn't one of them.

    Everything we said brought glory to Jehovah God. It was for the purpose of unity and getting out of Babylon the Great. Radical thoughts were necessary to get people's attention.

    We didn't PRESUME to speak in God's name, He told us what to publish. He slowly adjusted it in a way that we could progress toward a more accurate understanding.

    Oh, and we never said we spoke in his name. We were spirit-directed which means that we all got a portion of spirit, but had to get a two-thirds majority vote to be sure that's what Jah meant.

    There are a number of "spins" they use. The average JW thinks they admit to their mistakes and that makes the WTS Governing Body the ONE TRUE REPRESENTATIVE of GOD.

    And common sense tells us how to identify big, steaming piles of tradition bound, mythological horse poo. Doesn't stop the greater portion of humanity believing it though.

    All religions are false - is it just me or is it that simple!
