In Colossians the 2nd chapter there is a phrase in the KJV that captures the character of JW life.
20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments F12 of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship
In other words, JW's place the proverbial square peg over the round hole and through will power alone force it in. Never mind the destruction caused in the process. They pride themselves in their ability to fill lots of holes (rules).
By contrast, Jesus said that his load was light and that he'd do the heavy lifting with you under the yoke. I've found that he's a man of his word.
He is the coolest!
