    The Watchtower—Of God or Of Men

    Today I uploaded a new article to my blog taking a novel look at Watchtower’s assessment of The Apocrypha and the problem its findings pose for the Watchtower organization itself. Perhaps Watchtower should be more careful about the stones it throws at now deceased authors, knowing one day they'll also be deceased.

    My article is titled The Watchtower—Of God or Of Men and is available at:

    I think readers will like the final recommendation of this particular article.

    The Society also claims that its publications are "spiritual food" provided by Jehovah, necessary for understanding the Bible itself (which they claim could not be understood without their guidence). Things nowhere claimed in the Apocrypha.

    So perhaps the article Watchtower’s Governing Body should introduce to Jehovah’s Witnesses is one applying the same objectivity to The Watchtower as it does to The Apocrypha.

    LOL, that article on the Apocrypha is anything but objective. It is filled with special pleading and other fallacies.

    You silly girl, you. Precisely to avoid Watchtower’s pitiful means and methods is why I suggested Watchtower ply “the same objectivity” to itself.

    Play nice, now.

    The Watchtower has no standards!

    What else is the claim as "mouthpiece of God" but special pleading?

    How does the Governing Body interpretation of world events differ in any way from a mystical "knowing"?

    When events do not occur as demonstrating predictions made by the Watchtower they lapse into the "only human" canard.

    But, otherwise, claim privilege in chaneling Authorized dictation as God's proxy.

    This is no standard at all.
