The whole meeting for me was nauseating yesterday... the talk was on "science".. nuff said... then the watchtower, they are just spinning in circles patting themselves on the back lately it seems, but this is one thing that really stuck out to me.
I heard the comment multiple times about how the 2013 version of NWT made things "easier to understand" "simpler" and so on. This has been one of my main beefs with YHWH and his book. This is supposedly the tool for mankind to all live or die based on whether or not they:
- Understand it
- Believe it
Why would something of that magnitude need, simplifying, or made more understandable. The truth should be f%$#ing simple, end of story. Salvation, love, morality should be plain and simple to begin with, and not some cryptic books taken out of a much greater library of books, then reduced down, then massaged every century to make it more "cohesive" or appear to be somewhat cohesive through indoctrination in a religion (even though its really anything but).
Why does the word of God need help from men? If god wanted everyone to be able to understand, and believe something, he would have done a hell of a lot better job than this book
