To date I can honestly boast that my apostate enemies have failed to present any challenge which I have not been able to refute using the word of my God.
OK while I am not an apostate (never set foot in a KH)...I did have a talk with an elder with some evidence that though the GB does not claim to be inspired....they have in FACT done just that. I could see the wheels in his head trying to explain this away as he read it about 15 times over...in the end he just changed the subject in classic JW form. here is what I showed him....
JULY 1 1943 watchtower
The Lord breaks down our organization instructions further and makes them more practicable by further instructing us through his "fathful and wise servant". He says, 'let us assign the field, the world, to special pioneers, regular pioneers and companies of Jehovah's witnesses in an orderly way, sufficient for everyone to thoroughy witness therein, and let us place upon each one the responsibility of careing for the new world intrests in these respective assignments'. He says the requirements for special pioneers shall be 175 hours and 50 back-calls per month, which should develope into a resonable number of studies; and for regular pioneers 150 hours and as many back-calls and studies as can be properly developed during that time. And for company publishers he says, 'Let us make a quota of 60 hours and 12 back-calls and a least one study a week from each publisher.' These directions come to us from the Lord through his established agency directing what is required of us
Notice the places where it says HE SAYS...now I did a search of the bible and NO WHERE can these direcions be found. So if these directions from the Lord are not in the bible...then they MUST be communicated directly...that is called inspired....
the elder I showed this did a lot of stammering and said "Whell what I think they are TRYING to say is..."...I said NO...not trying to say...what they said! Then he gave the old "well this was a long time ago and our understanding has changed" speal. I countered with, It makes no diffrence WHEN this was said...by bible standards this is a claim to insperation! Then you add the fact that the WTBTS has indeed made predictions...(they admit to that, just that they are not inspired)...that have NOT come true. This means that by bible standards they ARE a false prophet! From the very point in time (at the VERY least) that this article came out, until the present, EVERYTHING the WTBTS has said is to be ignored. This is of course what the bible teaches about false prophets. This is where he so aptly changed the subject and I let him because I felt he needed some time to process this. He did say he would get back to me on this, but never did. This has been my experience with EVERY JW I have asked such tough questions as these, NEVER...not once a follow up. So since you seem to have such a good track record on these issues...please tell me;
Does the above information/article prove without a doubt that the WTBTS has indeed made claims to being inspired?
If not, how do you come to that conclusion?
