    Re: The Watchtower is NOT a false prophet .. ye... Apr 3, 2002 08:34


    Any person or organization that states that something will take place on a certain date or in a certain year and then is wrong about it, is a false-prophet.

    BOOM Right on the nail. No shit or excuses or whatever.!!

    A.M. You can nail this one personally on the WT coffin.

    But please leave the others some room. There is a chance that the nails will outweigh the coffin itself.

    Maybe that is why they restructured their corporations... so they can say that it was ANOTHER corporation that made the claims that the world was going to end in 1914, 1935, 1975, etc...

    Damnit, I have to clean coffee from my frikking monitor again. Avengers, stop making these hilarious posts!

    The WTBTS is stupid beyond stupid. They have crossed the event horizon of stupidity and have now attained a level of stupidity so high that not even our pitiful mathematics can begin to describe it! Their stupidness is so vast that they are threatening to destroy the entire known Universe and take everything down with them...GAK.


    I'm sure glad we don't vote anymore like we did before we got the truth. Now we get to complain about everything ALL the politicians do!

    Well Avenger, thanks for the thread.

    I wish I could personally close the WT doors, it would be very satisfying. I beleive I would be doing soceity a good thing. Unfortunately many people beleive in the religion/cult and would probably freak out if such a thing happened. My guess is there would be a lot of suicides.

    My statement is straight-forward and true, bottom line.

    The elder in my congregation said WTS is no false prophet because WTS is not inspired and Deut 18:20-22 is not appropriate to WTS!

  • avengers

    You cannot expect an elder to say anything else. If he did then he would become questionable.

    There is a passage in the Bible which the Governing Body applies to the Organization. It's in Ezekial 33:33. (Pardon my spelling here. I have only a Dutch Bible in my possession, a friend of mine has my English Bible, so I have to translate it in English.)
    It states :",,they shall know that a prophet was in their midst."

    As far as I understood the WT explanation the scripture is applied to during Armageddon and after, when people will be saying that they didn't know. Then the scripture is applied.
    "they shall know that a prophet was in their midst."

    In other words: "You were warned". By whom? By the prophet ofcourse. Who then is this prophet? The WT says it's them. Doesn't this logically mean that the WT is a prophet?
    How can they say that they are a prophet and in other cases say they are not? When they are wrong they say it doesn't apply to them because they are not inspired. Then how can they apply Ez. 33:33 to themselves.
    Form your own conclusion.!!
