Ding: I would not put too much stock on Julius Mantey's diatribe on the NWT. Julius made more than a few wrong statements about the WT and the NWT in his fiery criticisms. And the scandal he made of Watchtower dishonesty, is not accurate either.
I am no friend of the WT, I haven't been for more than 15 years, and I too criticize the WT for its many wrongs, its manipulation of members, and of some doctrines that end up benefitting the WTS, such as the distortion of the "house to house preaching mode," as required by every member, and the dreadful trickery of"the faithful and discreet slave." However, the Julius Mantey case is unfortunate and inaccurate. He made some valid points, but the whole thing was more of, to use Rolf Furuli's words, an "emotionally inspired caricature and a partisan (Baptist) spirit."
