    Per request on different thread.....

    My short list off the top of my head:

    - Wearing symbols or icons to identify their faith. ie: Watchtower necklaces, braclets, cuff links....

    - TV evangelizm

    - Website evangelizing

    Feel free to add anything that you can think of. Feel free to include any WT quotes if you have them.

    An obvious one: False prophecy....

  • Finkelstein

    Falsely expressed doctrines created largely impart from the production and manufacturing drive of the publishing of the organization's own literature.

    To note ... Christ taking his position upon his heavenly kingdom in 1914 occurred because the Watchtower Corporation was formed.


    In spite of Christ's own condemnation of his followers making up specific dates on god's time structure, the WTS

    made many particular dates to when god would implement the great tribulation and the following Armageddon.

    Why ? because it was advantageous in the proliferation the organization's published goods in attracting a readership base.

    • They condemned churches having music programs and entertainment then allowed the use of the Kingdom Hall for non worship purposes (eg: swing and country line dance demonstrations for convention delegates)
    • Churches were condemned for having rock music programs yet they allowed Mowtown and Country music to be played in the kingdom Halls this summer.
    • They condemned religious organizations for allowing blood transfusions, then themselves permitting the use of blood fractions after claiming that absolutely abstaining from blood is the only way to obey Gods law.
    • Churches were criticized for only worshiping God on Sunday then JW eliminated the Book Study after saying for decades how important this meeting was and citing Heb 10:25 "Do not forsake the gathering of yourselves together, as some have the custom but do it all the more so as you behold the day drawing near."
    • Churches were condemned for covering up of wrongdoing within their ranks then JW's policy ensured pedophyles would remain under the radar of the legal system.

    -They claim to not exalt their leadership and decry the Catholic Church for doing so yet the Octopope minus one is gaining celebrity status more and more as the days go by.

    -They also have a multiple class caste system (clergy/laity) while condemning the churches of Christendom for it.
