Sweetbabycheezits a yes or no answer doesn't stop the question being loaded. "have you beaten your wife lately" only requires "yes" or "no" but answering the question with either means the man is admitting to beating his wife.
Very good, that is a loaded question.
My questions are only "loaded" inasmuch as the WTBTS's condemnations and excuses allow for a double standard, which you cannot admit. Throughout this thread, we've more than covered the basis for the question and the choices.
The Watchtower Society made two contradicting statements, putting its followers in a precarious situation, and now I'm asking you to pick a horse and ride it.
Again, we've established that the WTBTS has made bad predictions in the past and even half-assedly admitted it:
Jehovah’s Witnesses, in their eagerness for Jesus’ second coming, have suggested dates that turned out to be incorrect. *** g93 3/22 3-4 Why So Many False Alarms? ***
It is easy for the established churches of Christendom and other people to criticize Jehovah’s Witnesses because their publications have, at times, stated that certain things could take place on certain dates.*** w84 12/1 18 Keep Ready! ***
And then you have these two contradicting statements about organizations that make bad predictions:
"True, there have been those in times past who predicted an "end to the world," even announcing a specific date..... Yet nothing happened. The "end" did not come. They were guilty of false prophesying. Why? What was missing? ? Missing was the full measure of evidence required in fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Missing from such people were God's truths and the evidence that he was guiding and using them." ***Awake! 1968 Oct. 8 p.23 - A Time to Lift Up Your Head in Confident Hope***
"It is easy for the established churches of Christendom and other people to criticize Jehovah’s Witnesses because their publications have, at times, stated that certain things could take place on certain dates. But is not such line of action in harmony with Christ’s injunction to “keep on the watch”?" *** w84 12/1 18 Keep Ready! ***
One of these statements condemns, the other commends. Take your pick.
