True or False.
Black or White.
Life or Death.
The above are binary. Either/or. This or That.
Computing is based on binary choices. Decisions nodes and pathways split into OPTIONS: Y/N
Jehovah's Witnesses have a very effective error contained in their teaching buried deep inside the theology.
It is BINARY.
JW's teach AS THOUGH religious doctrines exist as actual reality by linking real things to phony choices
A person schooled in science with a logical mind immediately grasps this difference between Jehovah's Witness methods and ordinary religious instruction.
The JW at your doorstep or conducting a bookstudy is ASSUMING into evidence a non-foundational fact, however.
That "fact" is a poison pill. It should be the deal killer. Instead, it is a hot selling point that grabs many victims!
Certainty and confidence become hardened into absolutes WHEN THERE IS NO ROOM FOR DOUBT.
Why? Because, life on planet earth has long been based on LIFE or DEATH decisions. Fight or Flight. Live or Die.
A split second momentary choice is the difference between existence and non-existence.
At least, we have been conditioned that way by our ancestors.
Is it any wonder we RESPOND to binary certainty?
Jehovah's Witnesses historically have tried to make connections between the flimsy and whimsical and hardcore, concrete fact.
They BLEND the two into a chimera.
Pyramid chronology mixed a REAL monument with speculative math to produce the chimera of DATES of significance.
The Dispensation Chart :Divine Plan of the Ages mixed actual historical eras with bible blather to symbolize a pattern both predictive and solid.
End Times writings created the proper setting of LIFE or DEATH that triggered a natural pavlovian survival response; EITHER/Or.
CHOOSE or PERISH.
Connecting actual events: earthquakes, riots, natural disaster, wars, famine, disease epidemics with dire Biblical "facts" (chronology)=BINARY
life or death response decisions.
The organization itself in Watchtower Society everyday life has become centered on BINARY control issues.
What has been removed WHICH IS PRESENT IN NON CULT religious settings is:
Debate, doubt, opinion, loyal opposition, factions, or even permission to hold some views while rejecting others.
BINARY control signals permission to RELAX your speculative functions.
1.Since there is no debate going on there must BE NONE....therefore there is nothing TO debate.
2.Since there are no counter opinions being voiced....this must be True and not opinion.
3.Since only apostates and ungodly worldly people disagree......this must be righteous truth.
The mechanism for sniffing out flaws, problems, error and doubt is SURGICALLY REMOVED in Kingdom Halls and in family life.
What happens next is stunning!
With nothing to doubt, a person of faith hardens into ABSOLUTE thinking....binary thinking...CERTAINTY.
There is no drug on earth as powerful as ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY!
When this thinking is connected to religious alignment with life or death matters it is INVINCIBLE to persuasion from outside!
That is why JW's call their religion THE TRUTH. Not "truth", mind you...but: THE Truth...because binary thinking now allows no competition.
Hitler used binary thinking and Absolute Certainty to create an army that threatened to sweep away everybody else's world but his own Vision of a Third Reich lasting a 1000 years. His followers became capable of anything.
Jehovah's Witness binary thinking use Absolute Certainty to create a cult dedicated to sweeping away everybody else's world but their own Vision of
a 1000 year reign of an invisible Christ.
What you and I were victim to was the hijacking of our SURVIVAL instincts. That is why JW messages are always ARMAGGEDON COMING SOON death notices.
Religious "belief" in bible and god is welded into links combining history, chronology, prophecy math and fear of death.
All doubt is removed. Naysayers are removed. Disagreement is demonized.
BINARY CHOICE is built into every action taken, every relationship formed, every word read and every thought engendered.
LIFE or DEATH.
To stop making the BINARY error of Jehovah's Witness theology effective it must be exposed for what it is.
Superstition is not fact.
Bible is not divine.
Chronology is flim-flam.
Dissent is intelligent thinking
Proof is results and not claims
Authority must be earned and accessible or it is fascist.
The number one question for Jehovah's Witnesses is DOES YOUR ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY not come from your INABILITY to QUESTION your own AUTHORITY? The second question is WHY IS THERE NO PLATFORM for defending different viewpoints without being labeled ENEMY?
If Jehovah's Witness religion is truly CHRISTIAN where are your Charities, hospitals, colleges, homeless shelters,etc?
If door to door work is the identity of your religion why has it centered on DOCTRINES PROVED WRONG time after time after time?
Why WARN of events that NEVER COME TO PASS if it is the TRUTH?
If you LOVE your ENEMIES why do you disfellowship them and label them APOSTATE and call them mentally unbalanced and refuse to pray for them?
These and other questions should be made more public to identify the real hook in the bait that snags many a catch for this binary religion.
