    "You must obey the GB as rulers, rather than God" 3 GB 4:7

    OTWO- Good thread. A common denominator in most all these quotes is that the WT society totally discourages it's members from looking elsewhere for ANY information which would expose the cult for what it really is - a mind control cult. Good compilation to see in the WT societies own words how controlling they really are

    My favorite (or least favorite depending on your point-of-view):

    "By word or action, may we never challenge the channel of communication that Jehovah is using today. (Num 16:1-3) On the contrary, we should cherish our privilege to cooperate with the slave class. And should we not strive to be obedient and submission to those taking the lead in our local congrgation? - The Watchtower, November 15, 2009 P 13 Para. 5

    Great quotes, but you should know that this is a clear violation of the copyright laws. It does not fall within the reasonable use exception, not even close as there is no accompanying scholarly criticism.

    “The Watchtower is not the instrument of any man or any set of men, nor is it published according to the whims of men. No man's opinion is expressed in the Watchtower”. -Watchtower 1931 November 1 p.327

    Demonic forces instead? Is that what we are really dealing with here?
