great comparison set Lorraine.
WT study article Jan 17 2010
The WT has a nasty habit of inviting critical scrutiny of everything except their own BS. But there is a further reason. They change, cover up, and lie about past and present teachings, as well as the inevitable future changes that are coming. (like everyone in the ex JW community saw had to happen with their former "generation" teaching)
I do believe that makes them hypocrites.
That's a brilliant comparison Lorraine, thanks.
I have never read anything that way before. It sounds so cultish and downright freaky!
From Clyde: "Kiss their ring."
And we all know which ring they want kissed.
The one where the sh!t comes out
The Watchtower Society sets the standard on hypocrisy on controlling its members ,
especially when it comes to open critical scrutiny on its doctrines.
It seems to them that its quite appropriate to scrutinize other religious faiths and a real true bible follower has the support of this,
but the Stop do not pass go gets placed around themselves by use of the apostasy finger pointed at individuals which usually
leads to disfellowshiping.
The ambivalence of power leading to corruption is there to see and acknowledge, as it is in most organized religions.
I can imagine that paragaraph being said by someone with a watch on a chain swinging from side to side and staring eyes.........frightening.
A comment was made at our hall today that if we do not
follow the instructions of the channel that God is using that
it will mean our deaths.
One brother even commented that the Slave has given
us a new song book and we do not want to show resistance
to learning the new songs. My brain began to bleed.
Another brother said that Jehovah dropped our
Tuesday night meeting so that we could have the
family worship night because the Faithful Slave
knows how important it is to study.
