  • All of the teachings (I counted 8) which have been reversed in the July 15th Watchtower were based on the Bible???????????

    "They are not the writings of of some religious leader/s in the U.S." ????????? Hello McFly!!!!! Wake up and smell the coffee!!!!!!

    To all of those in Branch Offices throughout the world who have the courage to peruse websites other than JW.ORG, ask yourselves, "Who controls and influences my thinking - The HB , or the GB ?

    Would it be too much trouble (if you haven't done it already) for you to post the 8 doctrines and their subsequent reversalss with references here on this thread.

    Pretty please.

    Question: What is the difference between Christians and Jehovah’s Witnesses?

    Answer: We are Christians! But rather than just claiming to be Christians, Jehovah’s Witnesses strive to live in harmony with what they believe and with what God is teaching them for their benefit. (Isaiah 48:17, 18) Since all their teachings are based on the Bible, they know they have the truth.—Matthew 7:13, 14, 21-23.

    "Based on the Bible" sounds wonerfully reassuring to the JW (controlled) mind, but what it really means, in non-WT speak, is "based on the WT interpretation of the Bible at any one time."

    With the caveat that "interpretations may change, and if we really cannot find a bible verse or phrase to back up our teaching, we will teach it anyway."

    West Side Story is based on Romeo and Juliette in a much closer way than JW/WT teachings are based on the Bible.

    Notice they are careful enough not to say "Our teachings come directly from the Bible" or are "Firmly rooted in scripture" or any such positive statement, no, they are simply "Based" on the Bible.

    I could "base" any fiction I wanted on the Bible, and it would not be true.

    claiming to be Christians = other terms in WT pubs = professed Christians, so-called Christians

    Because they say so, that's how the r&f know its true. No need to question, they have done the thinking for them.
