You are told that what sets your organization apart from all other religions is that there is no human leader, just Jesus, but if you want to follow Jesus and receive salvation you must obey and follow the leadership and direction of 8 self appointed human leaders.
It's Elders or Servants cannot resign a position of responsibility for personal reasons, or without an interrogation by other elders and then permission by headquarters.
Despite the bible saying at 1 Tim. 2:5,6 that Jesus is mediator for all men... It doesn't apply to you.
If you are an elder you can get a blank check to commit serious wrongdoing ...if you hide it for 4 or more years. Others who are not elders do not receive this courtesy. If you are not an elder you may be disfellowshipped and lose your family and friends.
Questions to the Governing body/ channel of God are not permitted. If questioned the questioner will be marked or punished by disfellowshipping.
Teachings claimed to be inspired by God change regularly. Each time it changes, Holy Spirit is credited. If you continue to believe something other than what is the new "understanding” you can be disfellowshipped.
There is a secret manual that gives the Elders instructions and policies that the publishers aren't permitted to know about.
Headquarters is aware of accused/convicted child molesters, but refuses to inform the congregations that the accused/convicted are in.
Child molesters are required to go door to door in their neighborhoods.
Direction claimed received from God, each time without a doubt, that the end of all things is going to come in 1914, 1925, 1975, “Before the end of the 20 th century.”........and it not once happens.
If your child goes to college or a trade school, you cannot continue to serve as a ministerial servant or elder.
