    If the "truth" keeps changing shouldn't they call it "In search of the Truth"? An orange is always an orange, and apple always an apple they do not change. So how is it "Truth" can change? Not possible in my way of thinking.

    How is it the faithful and discreet slave do not "all" take part in providing food at the proper time? How can only a portion of them provide food yet all be labled as the "faithful and discreet slave"?

    Where does it even say that the faithful and discreet slave dies after Jesus Christ arrives?

    Just a few questions about the so called "truth".

    They call it the (T)ruth because they are a mind-controlling cult. Examination of several other cults will show you very, VERY similar jargon in use.

    They get around that "change" thing by calling it CURRENT UNDERSTANDING or NEW LIGHT or or or....which means they didnt have it WRONG necessarily before but that God didnt reveal it in its entirety to them yet and so they had TRUTH but that that truth just gets....welll....truthier over time :)

    Yes, and apple is still an apple, but what if you are color-blind? Your perception of the apple is then very different, isn't it? Can you tell if it is a yellow or green apple?

    LOL.....that should keep you busy for a while.

    They call it the truth because talking like that is a form of brainwashing.

    It's selling the sizzle and not the steak.

    Calling it the truth reinforces its worth and causes the doubter to wonder and ponder," what am I missing?"

    They hope you will spend 10 -20 years before you figure it out.

    By which time there will be a whole new group of suckers.

    Because a cult needs to exclude the world.

    Actually it was Jesus who said to exclude the world.

    Totally a loaded word. That's why it's so hard to say "I'm leaving the truth"

    Its all a Part of the "Loaded Language". Many destructive cults refer to themselves as The Truth"

  • Layla33

    It is part of the indoctrination process.
