I remember when the new revelation book came up, to be updated, I'm wondering if anybody has compared them side by side, with the song book, etc, I am thinking there are many 'hidden' changes. If this hasn't been done yet, I'll be checking into this later this week.
The "real" changes in the Revelation book.....
I do love this paragraphy in the book of Revelation (the WT book that is) page 35 par 9, "As the years went by, however, many congregations failed to heed the words of Jesus. Lack of love for Jehovah, for the truth, and for one another resulted in their drifting into spiritual darkness. Having no love for God and for the truth.....They came to be dominated by a selfish clergy class that made its own kingdom here on earth. "
(I ommitted a few things inbetween, but added not a single word to that paragraph, do those statements seem to describe any organization here on earth right now? )
"With its issue of March 1, 1939, the name of the organization’s principal journal was changed to The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah’s Kingdom, thus giving primary honor to our Creator and his royal government." - Didn't Jehovah say all knees would bow down to his son?
THIS CAN BE BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not a change, but with our "new" songbook.............
in the revelation its grand climax at hand, page 36 is a box that is titled "loving praise to jehovah and his son", in which is makes this statement.....In the songbook produced in 1905, there were twice as many songs praising Jesus as there were songs praising Jehovah God. In their 1928 songbook, the number of songs extolling Jesus was about the same number extolling Jehovah. But in the latest songbook of 1984, Jehovah is honored by four times as many songs as is Jesus. This is in harmony with Jesus own words, "The father is greater then I am".
Now, in this new songbook, how many songs praising GB vs songs praising Jehovah? I also wonder if those numbers of Jesus being reduced were just replaced by GB songs.
