If there is a God and the Bible is his word and it's so all important to know what he wants us to do, it seems like he would have made things clearer and less mysterious. Some of the "Bible Stories" and the hidden meanings seem far too ambigious to be depended on to lead mankind to salvation.
If someone had interjected the story of Jack and the Bean Stalk in the Bible 5 thousand years ago...the WTBTS would likely be telling us now that the cow Jack sold to buy the magic beans stood for Gods sheeplike ones who cast off the material things of the world in order to take advantage of spiritual matters. Planting the magic beans represents the sowing God's life giving message through our ministry, the bean stalk pictures mankinds ability to raise himself up to a heavenly level by means of spirital food. The Giant would represent Satans oppressive organization and the Watchtower Society would be symbolized by the goose that laid the golden egg and from who's droppings we must all feed.
I would have been taught this story from birth along with all the other possible notions about what the Bible is supposedly saying and it would have sounded logical and I likely would have gone along with it like I did the rest.
As far as God and the Bible goes...I'm taking a wait and see attititude...this mess was going on long before I came onto the scene and with the new "genreation" thing...it may be going on long after I'm gone. In the meantime, I'm not responsible for having all the answers. They have put that idea into our minds. All the years of them trying to prove how many angels can dance on the head of a pin (so to speak) and using incomplete or unprovable information to do so, has gotten me to the point that I've thrown the baby out with the bath water....for the time being anyway.
