Where did it all go wrong?

    Being a Jehovah’s Witness is getting easier with each worldly year that passes. Time is not getting shorter but meetings are, along with assemblies.

    In my day the closing prayer lasted longer than the whole modern assembly. Now the book study is about to perish in the way.

    Shorter hours for pioneers are on the way. No need to sell books and magazines to the public, just hand out tracts. For those bright enough to use a computer they can proselyte via email, the green alternative to fuel guzzling ministry.

    Even the dress code is has relaxed to point that people offer them money for clothes when they call. Voting is a matter of Conscience as are blood fractions.

    Soon they will meet once a week for 30 minutes to hug, congratulate themselves for not yet becoming apostates and swap conkers.

    They are kidding nobody but themselves. Like a dog chasing its own tail, except being sheep, they have no tail, just an imaginary, invisible, spiritual tail that only they can see.

    In the end the Society will just insert a control chip in each Jehovah’s Witness, somewhere so dark and deep that even the ever increasing Watchtower light will not reach it. Then they will have reached perfection.

    When it comes to Jehovah’s Witnesses - they just don't make 'em like they used to. They are now a lost wandering shadow of what they were - too brainwashed to bleat out the simple question:

    Where did it all go wrong?

    Do you agree or am I being harsh?

    What changes have you seen?

    There seems to be a cowering backward from information thats recently coming out, perhaps its for financially reasons or perhaps

    the GB is losing its boldness due to previously untruthful doctrines, hence JWs light is being formed.

    The fact that they have repeatedly stated that they are indeed god's solemn organization on earth and all other religions are false has indirectly shot themselves in the foot

    based on the open information that is present on the inter-net.

    Their greatest battle of their existence to date is the information highway.

    They may have laid out too much bullshit to make them seem viable in the eyes of the public.

    The WTS was built on the zest for power and money and cumulative manipulation and exploitation,

    those ingredients all together make for a weak structure at its foundation, now the tower is starting to teeter at its base and is now on the verge

    of collapsing all together.

    Where did it go wrong ?

    It was founded on a false premise and built up on that premise only to grow from there, people are looking for spiritual truths not spiritual falsehoods.

    The fact that C.T. Russell wanted the WTS. to stop publishing any further literature on his passing indicates some personal integrity on what he was producing

    only unfortunately to have his lawyer Joseph Rutherford break that integrity and form the Jehovah's Witnesses.

    Interesting post. I agree that the JWs of today are nothing like they used to be. THey don't even know what THEY believe. They just blindly follow the "slave" because really, when it comes down to it, they're lazy worshipers.

    Do you agree or am I being harsh?

    Most of the time your bold statements are much more than my tender, idealistic heart can

    accept but here I find nothing of such ! It's all fact and truth..what can I say ?

    I agree.... (except about clothing)

    However I think that a strong visionary leadership who distances himself/posse away from Chronology and MOC matters with silence can overcome what the current bullyship whose re-arranging chairs on a sinking ship has left adrift.

    errrr ... I meant : they have messed up so much with the teaching (changes - and nonsense - false prophetie) that they can't really stand on all their bugs ... fading is the last simple way out (but doing it in a subtle way playing the : we are on the last step ... bla, bla, bla)

    Its very ironic in a way that it will be " The Truth" that may be their undoing via the inter-net

    No more power and control for the boys in Brooklyn, they are just going to have to get real jobs.

    I know of a window washing company that is looking for help right now.


    Thanks for your responses.

    Homerovah the Almighty : Where did it go wrong ? It was founded on a false premise and built up on that premise only to grow from there, people are looking for spiritual truths not spiritual falsehoods.

    This sums it up. The spiritual feast that was promised, turned out to be a few stale mouldy crusts. The spiritually hungry remained impoverished and in need.

    The Watchtower Society state that, thousands of people have listened to their message with belief. In view of their record of failed prophecies, do these same people still listen with belief? Those who listened with belief and helped to proclaim the warning were threatened with excommunication if they ever dared to question the Society’s “truths” which they have referred to as “unquestionable certainties.”

    “Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognise them by the fruits they bear.” (Matthew 7:15,16 – NE)

    Whether this scripture can be applied to the Watchtower Society depends on what kind of fruit they have produced. Have the prophecies made by them ripened or turned bad? Have those that received the Society’s fruit been satisfied or disappointed?
