    Catholicism pre Vatican II.

    Some day the internal rebellion will begin, dictatorships are falling all around the world in politics and religion.

    If they started out with a bias to believe Paul and didn't examine things critically, in what sense did they check things out at all? -Ding

    Exactly. To top it off, the only "message" they had to verify was the messianic prophecies concerning Jesus. It had nothing to do with looking for an organization. Once they verified that, they could accept the simple message.

    @ Ding - Good points. And on your last question, I'll take "the slave" for $1,000. Thanks. LOL

    @ knowsnothing - Are you suggesting God did not have an organization back in the day?

    I'd like to revise this article a bit:

    We can benefit from this consideration. If we have doubts about what instrument God is using as his "slave" to dispense spiritual food to his people, surely Jehovah is extremely pleased if we receive that food as though it might contain something harmful. We should absolutely verify to our total satisfaction whether or not this religion is living up to its claims that IT is the channel God is using. - 00DAD 2012 2/15, Our View of the WTBTS

    I'm just sayin' is all ...

    (Proverbs 14:15) 15 Anyone inexperienced puts faith in every word, but the shrewd one considers his steps.

    Good catch LanDi!
