Whether you resent my comments about the WT society unjustly taking advantage in encouraging people to donate wills, inheritances, estates, cars, jewelry, and possessions - I really don't care. I speak the truth.
I said you do not "speak the truth" here at all, that is from where I sit! I reacted to what you actually wrote:
Jehovah's Witnesses and the WT society lie about it because they want to dupe, deceive and take advantage of JW members to keep them hooked into the game by contributing $$$$ to the WT society. They coerce older members to donate estates, wills, inheritances, cars, jewlery and possessions so as to contribute to a multimillion $$$$ yearly WT society income.
For the record, I am one of those Jehovah's Witnesses that you have here accused of running some confidence game against unsuspecting folks in order to enrich themselves. Since this is not true from my perspective, this makes you a liar.
Once the WT society HAS attained those possessions legally who do YOU think will benefit from them ? The leaders of the organization. Certainly not the poor rank and file publishers . Do you think the WT society will share the wealth they [receive] and write checks dispersing the wealth among JW members ? If you say " yes " then you are really duped.
I don't expect the WTS to issue any checks to anyone not deserving. I trust the WTS to oversee the operations that involve the entire association of Jehovah's Witnesses. Evidently you don't trust the WTS to do this, but you don't have to trust the WTS, do you? You're not one of Jehovah's Witnesses and you are no defender of Jehovah's Witnesses either.
I am not a liar. If you don't believe how much wealth the WT society possesses - why don't you google any WT society financial information on the internet and inform yourself ? Instead of getting all defensive about what you are not aware of. You say you're successful, you claim to be bright . Prove it to yourself.
I don't have any need to Google anything. I get to read the WTS financial reports every year, and you are what you are. No doubt. I will defend against such false allegations if I choose to do so, and you may continue to go on defaming the WTS and Jehovah's Witnesses if that is what you choose to do, and I'm pretty sure that you are not going to allow anything that I might say to you on this issue to prevent you from lying.
I don't care if you are intelligent or not. It's a non-issue to me. What is a issue is knowing the REAL truth about what the WT society tries to do in mind controlling and manipulating it's members.
Usually it's the ignorant that care nothing about intelligence, loving to wallow in their ignorance. I'm fine with your making your own choices.
I do agree with your point " I don't believe that ignorance will save anyone. " That's why I try to enlighten people to the [deceptions] of the WT society.
To what purpose? Who are the beneficiaries of your "gospel"? What enlightening do you provide that will result in eternal life for anyone willing to listen to your haranguing Jehovah's Witnesses and defaming the WTS? I'd like to read you response to these few questions if you have time to do so.
Do you think the Watchtower is scrupulously honest?
Who is "the Watchtower"? Do you mean do I think Jehovah's Witnesses are scrupulously honest folks? If so, yes, I do.
To give you an idea of why some simply responded to you posts with the words "OH DEAR GOD"....
Go back and check the order in which the messages from @hamsterbait and @MsDucky were posted, ok? I already know what it was I posted.
Can't you ever just answer a straight question?
Yes, I can (and that is what I am now doing with respect to this question from you).
At San Diego, California, there is a small piece of land, on which, in the year 1929 there was built a house, which is called and known as Beth Sarim.... The title to Beth Sarim is vested in the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society in trust, to be used by the president of the Society and his assistants for the present, and thereafter to be forever at the disposal of the aforementioned princes on the earth .
Are you suggesting something sinister about Beth-Sarim where J.F. Rutherford came to live for some 13 years, where he lived during the winters from 1929 until his death on January 8, 1942, due to his health after having lost one of his lungs following his imprisonment back in 1919 where he developed a severe case of pneumonia. The man had been back in forth between Brooklyn, New York, and San Diego, California, under doctor's care until someone made a direct contribution for the purpose of constructing a house in San Diego for his use. Brother Rutherford’s use. It wasn't as if Beth-Sarim was built at WTS expense, and after Rutherford's death, the property was conveyed to the WTS, who eventually sold the property as made clear in the Watchtower, dated December 15, 1947.
Specifically, as to the zany idea that Jehovah's Witnesses had about the possibility of using Beth-Sarim to house Abraham, Joseph and David -- whose resurrection Jehovah's Witnesses had at that time anticipated to occur from Armageddon -- this notion as to these men being resurrected before the end of this system of things and serving as "princes in all the earth" (in fulfillment of Psalm 45:16) was abandoned as the Watchtower, dated November 1, 1950, states, at which time an adjustment was made that indicated that these pre-Christian men of faith would be resurrected after Armageddon. One must always keep in mind that Jehovah's Witnesses are neither perfect nor infallible, nor are any of the things printed by the WTS as aids to Bible study inspired by God.
Look: Why don't you take a moment, think about what you want to say, and then just ask me a proper question, instead of just quoting something you copied from a now-defunct 1939 book, Salvation? Do you think you could do this?
