    I was just going over this week's WT study and I found this paragraph (p. 6) that I found so mind boggling, that I want to share:

    As mentioned in the preceding article, a fundamental goal that you can set is to prove to yourself that what is said in the Bible is true. (Rom. 12:2; 2 Cor. 13:5) Your peers may believe in evolution or in various false religious doctrines because others have told them that this is what they should believe. However, you can rise above such thinking when it comes to your own beliefs. Remember, Jehovah wants you to serve him with your whole mind. (Read Matthew 22:36, 37.) Our heavenly Father wants you to build your faith on evidence.—Heb.11:1.

    Prove to yourself that what is said in the bible is true? Do they mean their bible (NWT)? Or their interpretation of the bible?

    Our peers believe stuff because that's what we've been taught? Or because we accept their teachings if they're reasonable and based on evidence?

    Build faith on evidence? What? That makes no sense. Belief in the bible requires faith because evidence is scarce. What evidence?
