Sugar Coating the Watchtower

    I was reading the latest public Watchtower and

    it was talking about Armageddon. The article

    said that "soon God will destroy all of the wicked

    and all those opposing God." Anyone who is not

    a JW would not include themselves as God's targets

    because they would not consider themselves as being

    wicked or as opposing God. If the Watchtower printed

    what it really meant ( God will destroy anyone who is

    not a Jehovah's Witness ) then they would really be

    seen for what they really are which is a cult.

    I wish that the Witchtower would really print what

    they mean and quit sugarcoating thier message.

    Yeah, this doublespeak is one reason I woke up and realized that things are really wrong at JW HQ.

    They don't sugar coat once you're inside !

    I'm inactive and heard a talk by an Elder as to what happens to inactive baptized members: ''Any brother or sister who is inactive while Armageddon arrives will not enter the new earth.''

    Ugh, such hubris! It's like they are God already. I think this scripture applies:

    (1 Corinthians 4:8) 8 YOU men already have YOUR fill, do YOU? YOU are rich already, are YOU? YOU have begun ruling as kings without us, have YOU? And I wish indeed that YOU had begun ruling as kings, that we also might rule with YOU as kings.

    They dont sugar coat it all the time.

    There was an watchtower study article that stated that only JWs have hope for survivng the big A.

    Im sure someone on here knows which one it was.

    You can sugar coat a pile of crap and it still tastes like a pile of crap.

    Not that I would know what that tastes like...

    You can polish a terd but it still is a terd.

    It is such a pile of dung. I can't believe I used to look forward to the new edition and underline the answers- man I'm ashamed of myself.

    As soon as I learn a group thinks they are god's one and only I know they are fucked beyond reason, JW's, Mormons, or any mainstream group, selfish, ego, wacko, as a matter of fact all the real screwed up groups believe this, branch davidians, jim jones types, by their fruit you will know them or by the idea that they are the chosen ones I know to stay clear.

    They always lie at the door about who will survive Armageddon - doubletalk, like only Jehovah can read hearts.

    Ah the good old Watchtower spin.

    A slick trick to swindle and con.

    Slyly twisting words to take in and hoodwink.

    Camouflaged charlatans, hypocrites that defraud and delude.

    Those who proclaim their superiority betray honesty and stoop to the lie.

    They manufacture sham propaganda and cheerful images of their make believe utopia.

    Counterfeit prophets making absurd quack claims. Revealers of truth until they decide it must change.

    Watch out, beware of this snare, of this racket. Because once you’re reeled in it’s hard to get out.

    Been in, been out…out is way better.
