    I like Godrulz one about the Pharisees. I've said something similar.

    I really think that when you tell a witness that you see them as Jesus saw the Pharisees there is a delayed 'wow' moment later. But, again, maybe nothing gets through.

    One of my former co-workers is a DF JW. I felt genuine love and compassion for him as a person and would walk alongside him if I could, especially to know the love of God in Christ. I was surprised at the negative, judgmental attitudes of JWs who knew him that I also ran into. They seemed to gloat in his demise, tsk, tsk, with no brokenness or compassion to see him restored. He was a broken person, not a horrible anti-JW type. If someone from our church falls, we reach out in love, continue the relationship, pray for full redemptive restoration vs punitive manipulation. It is one thing to be a hard-hearted rebel in significant sin. It is another thing to get DF for an endless list of fairly minor things that could merit discipline, not DF (harsh, controlling, not biblical model).

    Jehovah removed his blessing from the isrealalites and first congregation when they misinturpreted his teachings. Why didn't he let the light get brighter for them?

    If it's true about the light getting brighter, then why are you known as Jehovah's Witnesses and not Jesus Witnesses?

    This name was taken from the old testament but according to the new testament Jesus said we would be witnesses of him to the most distant part of the world. (Acts 1:8)

    (Notice even in the last book of the bible, that they were referred to as witnesses of Jesus. So what gives?)

    Rev. 17:6 [NWT] "And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the holy ones and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus."

    I'm an 'apostate' just like Jesus and Paul were from the organization in their day.

    If God is backing you and his spirit is more powerful than Satan's why are there so few JW's compared to the Bilions of earths inhabitants?

    Yes -- Why does Satan have a better & more successful Public Relations team than Jehovah God does, since the WTS has only been successful in helping 1% of earth population see the Truth? The salvation of only 1% of humankind is contrary to what the Bible specifically states as God's Will at 1 Tim. 2:3,4.

    Since WTS claims to be directed by God's Holy Spirit, does that mean that the Holy Spirit (God's Active Force) is not as strong/powerful as Satan's? OR, does it suggest that they really lack God's Spirit?

    Since WT claims the growth within the Organization is evidence of God's spiritual backing (support), why does not the fact that other religious groups have successfully attracted more followers (believers) provide evidence that they have even greater evidence of God's backing?
