    "The fundamentalis approach is dangerous, for it is attractive to people who look to the Bible for ready answers to the problems of life. It can deceive these people, offering them interpretations that are pious but illusory, instead of telling them that the Bible does not necessarily contain an immediate answer to each and every problem. Without saying as much in so many words, fundamentalism actually invites people to a kind of intellectual suicide. It injects into life a false certitude, for it unwittingly confuses the divine substance of the biblical message with what are in fact its human limitations."

    I think this fits what the Governing Body heads up today. One could find confirmation of the above words many times in the history of Jehovah's Witnesses from 1878 to today. Blood, pedophiles, medical advice (ERA, aluminum, vacinations, organ transplants), shunning, false teachings, misrepresenting history (1914, dealings with Hitler) and more.....

    Thanks for the thought provoking article

    Of the 2.1 billion Christians in the world about 1.5 billion believe in a literal Transubstantiation of the blood and flesh of Jesus and the others do not. Go figure.

    A good read.

    Make Lemonade's quote was really the part that packed a punch.
