Jehovah's Witnesses do not withhold life-saving medical aid from their children. They merely wish to obey the Biblical command: "Abstain from blood." (Acts 15:28, 29) Given that their God-given hope of a resurrection is stronger than their desire to preserve a temporary life in this system of things, why disobey Jehovah's clear direction for the sake of preserving one's life? Jesus himself said, "Whoever wants to save his soul will lose it; but whoever loses his soul for my sake will gain it."
Nor do Jehovah's Witnesses condone or protect those who abuse children. Such a horrific crime is never tolerated amongst Jehovah's people. Any who are guilty of such and are unrepentant are disfellowshipped, thus protecting the flock and especially the precious children. Learn From the Great Teacher, one of our Christian publications, provides clear instructions that will help both young children and their parents to protect themselves from any who might seek to abuse them. Children are given detailed advice on what to say and what not to allow adults to do to them.
The Governing Body does not condone immoral behavior. As a whole, it submits to God's direction. Individuals may fall into gross sin and thus have to be disciplined by Jehovah, but surely this is no reason to consider all of pure worship to be tainted. The apostle Peter displayed racism and even denied Jesus three times on the night of his death. The apostle Paul approved of the murder of a faithful Christian. Humans make serious mistakes at times, but this does not justify willfully challenging the channel Jehovah is using today to provide spiritual instruction. (Matt. 24:45-47)
The Watchtower Society made use of the library facilities of the United Nations as it would use any other library facility owned by a governmental authority. Some of its information was restricted, however, not permitted non-NGO entities to make use of it. In order to continue providing informative articles for Jehovah's people and the public, it was, for a time, necessary to attain NGO status. The Governing Body was unaware of any tacit support for the United Nations and certainly terminated the NGO association once it became clear that it might stumble the consciences of some in the Christian congregation. Unlike apostate Christendom, Jehovah's Witnesses sought no political alliance with "the wild beast" of Revelation 13. Rather, they seek to remain 'no part of the world', as Jesus encouraged true Christians to do.
Really, what does such criticism of Jehovah's organization accomplish? Is anyone upbuilt, encouraged to love their brothers or to glorify God? Hardly. All that happens is time wasted in fruitless research and dwelling on negative thoughts--things that Satan would love to entrap Jehovah's people in so that they slow down in their ministry. No organization on earth is perfect. But it is abundantly clear that Jehovah is using his organization to glorify his name throughout the earth. Wise and humble Christians, therefore, trust in it and submit to its direction.
