"It seems like there is some fundamental belief which is somehow not touched by seeing these various errors and which anchors them to the Society no matter what.
What is that fundamental belief and how how can it be dealt with?
My own opinion is that this 'lynchpin' belief, the unchallenged assumption, is that the Society is "God's Organization", the rep of the "Faithful and Discreet Slave". Everything else rests on that, and as long as that notion remains unchallenged, nothing else matters. All 'sins' no matter how gross will often be overlooked because of this core assumption.
I think this belief is a little like the little energy port that Luke has to shoot in Star Wars to destroy the otherwise indestructible 'Death Star" LOL. The energy port leads to the Core - Boom. Hit that and it's Game Over.
So, my thought is that for many JW's the 'satellite' issues - no matter how serious they are - and irrelevant as long as the Core Assumption remains intact. Which means the key issue would be to show that they cannot be "The Faithful and Discreet Clave" and simply cannot have been appointed to anything in 1919, and this is actually pretty easily done. If this is shown to be impossible, then the reason for their dismissing all the other errors simply vanishes.
That's my feeling anyway.
What say you?"
The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is a legal organization in use by Jehovah’s Witnesses and Bible based publications are simply a source of assistance to understand God's Word.
If wanted to learn C# I could get involved with the development community:
Or I could read a book:
Notice 4.0. This is because the book has been revised to clear up any prior errors and the language has been refined as well.
Rbi8 p. 8 Introduction
This 1984 revised edition of the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures richly enhances accurate Bible knowledge by means of several distinctive features such as the marginal (cross) references, an extensive footnote apparatus, a concordance (Bible Words Indexed) and an appendix. Modern computerization has assisted greatly in preparing these features.
MARGINAL REFERENCES: There are more than 125,000 marginal (cross) references in this edition. These citations demonstrate that there is at least a second witness to almost every Biblical matter. A careful comparison of the marginal references and an examination of the accompanying footnotes will reveal the interlocking harmony of the 66 Bible books, proving that they comprise one book, inspired by God.
Insignificant errors don't really mean anything as long an organization advances on an upward scale. People here often take things out of context (the context is unrelated) and compare unrelated information in search for an error.
For example, the accusations about false prophets:
g93 3/22 pp. 3-4 Why So Many False Alarms?
Does the failure of such predictions to come true convict as false prophets those who made them, within the meaning of Deuteronomy 18:20-22? That text reads: “The prophet who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded him to speak or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die. And in case you should say in your heart: ‘How shall we know the word that Jehovah has not spoken?’ when the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word does not occur or come true, that is the word that Jehovah did not speak.”
There are some who make spectacular predictions of the world’s end to grab attention and a following, but others are sincerely convinced that their proclamations are true. They are voicing expectations based on their own interpretation of some scripture text or physical event. They do not claim that their predictions are direct revelations from Jehovah and that in this sense they are prophesying in Jehovah’s name. Hence, in such cases, when their words do not come true, they should not be viewed as false prophets such as those warned against at Deuteronomy 18:20-22. In their human fallibility, they misinterpreted matters.
w64 1/1 p. 4 Will Sincerity Alone Please God?
In the all-important matter of worshiping God, it is likewise true that sincerity alone does not guarantee that God is pleased with our worship. We may conscientiously believe we are doing well in this regard, yet we may be deluding ourselves.
I may have an opinion about who I believe is deceiving their own mind about pleasing God, but what is stated in the 1964 Watchtower was for the purpose of self-reflection, not a means to judge others. Part of the problem with anonymously accusing Jehovah's Witnesses on the internet, of something the Bible defines as immoral, is nobody knows who you are. People can visit a Kingdom Hall to see if Jehovah's Witnesses are who they make themselves out to be.
