May you all have peace! ALL of these are WTBTS goals, to one extent or another. There is the human faction, the corporate faction, the religious faction, etc. There are individuals GB goals, as well. On an individual basis, dear Black Sheep's (peace to you!) comment is most correct:
The GB are the instigators of this madness, so, like Charlie, their goal is to keep up the charade to keep their feelings of guilt at bay.
I base this on my personal experience with and observation of Carey Barber. He knew he wasn't "anointed"... by ANY stretch. He could not hide his fear when he knew that I realized that. I didn't, going in; indeed, I approached with the utmost respect.
The "revelation" came during our discussion, not by divine intervention but by being written all over his face and evidence in his body language as we "talked". Couldn't miss it. I also knew then that none of them were... regarding of the facade they were perpetuating... and that they all knew it. Why not admit it? You're talking about very old men - where in the world would they go if they did so? Who would care for them? They knew many had lost everything for "turning away" from the WTBTS. Who expect anything different?
But there really is an even darker goal of the WTBTS, although not necessarily known to the ones being used to perpetuate it.
The ULTIMATE goal of the WTBTS… more than ANY other “Christian” religion… is to utterly shipwreck your FAITH. Absolutely, totally… and utterly.
How is so? It is because in THEIR minds… and, as a result, many of yours… they are, for all intents and purposes… the “LAST stop” on the journey to finding the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob… and/or His Son, Christ. Unfortunately, many have proven them RIGHT: that if THEY aren’t the “truth” (which they claim to be), there really is NO other. There IS no truth… except what we can experience, realize, and observe… empirically. That, however, is a LIE: they never were the “truth”, they are NOT the last stop (Christ is!)… and we are so much more than our flesh!
What is behind their game? Dear ProdSon (peace to you, as well!) came closest to hitting the proverbial nail on the head:
Since negative entities, or "demons" feed off of fear, and emotions are energy, it also seems that black magicians have a way of harnessing the negative emotion of fear, to offer up as "food" to their demon gods.
While it is true that others (i.e., the RCC) have used fear to garner members (heck, MAKE them, in their case)… the insidiousness of the WTBTS’ tactics are far worse: folks’ fear of the RCC was based on the RCC openly SAYING… “Fear God, fear US… or you WILL die… NOW. Because we WILL kill you… and kill you NOW. You won’t have to wait for Armageddon.” The WTBTS, on the other hand, says “You’ve absolutely NOTHING to fear; we LOVE you”… as they’re literally chopping off your head… and/or your loved ones’ heads.
Bottom line? If you’ve let the falsehood of the WTBTS lead you to conclude that there is no God… then they’ve “won”… as to you. Once again, you think you “see”… but the truth is that, once again, you were blind-sided – didn’t even see it coming. Don’t see it, yet. But the end result is that while the Adversary may not have gotten your body… yet… he most certainly got your spirit. Because they led you right into giving it TO him:
As he challenged: “For a change, thrust out your hand, please, and touch everything he has… and see whether he will not CURSE YOU… to your very face.”
The PURPOSE of that challenge, dear ones… is to GET YOU TO CURSE GOD. “How can you love them more than you love us? They’re weak, whiney, puny, miserable, turncoats! Don’t believe it? Here, do such and so to them and watch them not only crumble like blue cheese… but CURSE YOU for allowing it!”
And, to our great [human] shame, so MANY have proven this accusation true. “How could a LOVING God take away my health, family, possessions? No LOVING God could/would do such a thing! So, there must be NO God! Or if there is, He’s a *&%!#!”
But it wasn’t the Most Holy One of Israel who “touched” any of us, though: it was our Adversary, the one called “Satan” and “Devil.” HE is the one who challenged us… and so that each one of us could answer FOR OURSELVES… the one for whom we, each of us, have been ALLOWED to give our OWN reply… rather than having God step in and reply FOR us.
Sadly, apparently just as the Adversary accused… most of us are not up to the challenge. I realize that many, perhaps most, would say, “Well, I would rather have had God step in and save me from my misery.” Okay. But ME? No. Let ME answer FOR me! And MY answer is, “BS, Belial! YOU… are LIAR… especially when it comes to ME! Because MY faith in the Most Holy One of Israel is NOT based on what He “does” for me, gives me, or keeps me from suffering from. It is based on MY love for HIM. So, bring it! Because NOTHING… death… life… angels… governments… things now… things to come… nor powers… nor height… nor depth… nor any other creation… especially YOU… is going to separate ME from GOD’S love… that is IN Christ, MY Lord! Sorry, but you have WRONG one! So, get behind… and move on!”
I made that claim once… about 15 years ago when it SEEMED like all was starting to crumble. Only seemed like it, though: I couldn’t “see” beyond where I WAS… to where I am now.
The WTBTS is NOT the last stop, dear ones, not at ALL. Not by any stretch. There is not “another” way – there is… and always was… only ONE Way: Christ.
I hope this helps and, again, I bid you all peace!
A slave of Christ,
