    How about the Watchtower 1999, Nov. 1 page 28. "Voting is a conscience matter."

    The WTS says that they "clarify" or "adjust" or "refine" their teachings. But in the Proclaimers book they admit there must be change. It is just semantics.

    *** w00 9/1 pp. 12-13 par. 7 Show a Waiting Attitude! ***As Bible prophecies undergo fulfillment, our understanding of the Scriptures is refined. At times, though, we may think that a certain clarification is overdue.

    *** jv chap. 28 p. 629 Testing and Sifting From Within ***Jehovah’s Witnesses freely acknowledge that their understanding of God’s purpose has undergone many adjustments over the years. The fact that knowledge of God’s purpose is progressive means that there must be change. It is not that God’s purpose changes, but the enlightenment that he continuously grants to his servants calls for adjustments in their viewpoint.

    Good to know God regularly changes his mind.

    Jehovah doesn't change. He is The Eternal.

    Always use the example that would grab the attention of any non JW. I would personally use the example of how they excommunicate the victim of rape. They have flip flopped on this about five times. I would not use the example of their convoluted blood issues because it can get too technical and boring for the "worldly" audience. Ditto for other doctrines.

    One obvious example is that you can easily get yourself disfellowshipped for promoting certain (and many) ideas that they taught as absolute truth not much more than 2 or 3 decades back.

    There is also the fact that the WT Society itself discourages the reading or use of their historical writings for this very reason.

    Yeah, look at Romania!
