WASBLIND- Exactly. The WTS shoots itself in the foot by it's own quotes ! Thanks for supplying the quotes .
OUTLAW- Indeed JW's can do VERY strange things ! LOL !
WHA HAPPENED ? - I have an older JW dad who kind of spouts off weird stuff from the news trying to paint the JW picture of things too. It's bizarre. WT Society does use news items that are odd to make their points for sure. They are terminally weird.
TIKI- It really is twisted and cruel for the WT Society to insinuate if their members get sick - it's due to Satan's influence. Wow. It just really pounds in the guilt even further like a sledgehammer into their brains ! Really weird.
00DAD- It is amazing isn't it how idiotic and pre school mentality these statements are ! Do they take JW's for fools ? Well- unfortunately the answer is " yes " they do. Very sad.
HEATHEN- Like yourself I was raised up in the JW's from birth and taught that getting sick was due to inherited sin , not Satan attacking us ! It's really just another guilt inducing indoctrination method by WT Society leaders. They really are an evil bunch of bastards.
EUSTACE- Very good point you make that it is a mind control tactic telling people that " not serving Jehovah ( i.e. not knocking on the doors with J-dubs ) = DEATH. " Really twisted forms of reasoning and a sly way of telling JW's that if they are dead they aren't worth anything and it makes JW's FEAR death also. So it's a combination GUILT AND FEAR tactic
