"Stay away from Apostate Material Baby, it's pornographic saith
Jehovahs Witnesses encourages their followers to stay away from apostate literature. Indeed you read in the last section of the Watchtower as a review question after reading the entire article Do you wisely destroy apostate material?" The Watchtower, March 15, 1986, p. 12
Gee, Jehovahs Witnesses better say yes to that question, after reading the article. A true Jehovahs Witness should not have apostate literature in their homes. In fact, the Watchtower compares apostate literature just as pornography. The Watchtower, March 15, 1986, p. 14 ask the question again at the end of the article, "Why is reading apostate publications similar to reading pornographic literature?"
According to the Watchtower, the apostasy of the church began with the doctrine of the Trinity. In their magazine Should You Believe In The Trinity in a sub-title section Apostasy Foretold the Watchtower writes This disreputable history of the Trinity fits in with what Jesus and his apostles foretold would follow their time. They said that there would be an apostasy, a deviation, a falling away from true worship until Christs return, when true worship would be restored before Gods day of destruction of this system of things. Should You Believe In The Trinity; Watchtower and Bible Tract Society; 1983, page 9.
It is obvious this teaching of the Trinity according to the Watchtower is the apostasy foretold. It is the deviation or the falling away from true worship. Worshipping Jesus Christ the Son of God is not true worship. True worship by Watchtower standards is worshipping the Father Jehovah and not the Son. This is Trinitarian Doctrine and it is an apostasy and hence, its pornographic.
The brochure continues on page 9 to hammer in the brains of Jehovahs Witnesses this apostasy was foretold by Jesus himself implying this apostasy is a falling away from true worship.
By Watchtower definition we can conclude the apostasy began with The Trinity Doctrine and those who believe it, worships Father-Jehovah, Son-Jesus and Holy Spirit fell away from true worship and teaching of God.
The Watchtower encourages Jehovahs Witnesses to destroy apostate literature and they actually compare apostate literature with pornography. If apostate literature is compared with pornography that means those who teaches worshipping Father, Son and Holy Spirit is actually engaging in pornographic material. Can you believe this? This is blasphemy people. You have to r ead between the lines folks.
The Watchtower Uses Pornographic Teachers
In their Publications!
It is interesting the Watchtower encourages their people to destroy those pornographic material AKA Apostate Material, when the Watchtower themselves are guilty of using apostate literature in their wonderful publication they publish.
Justin Martyr is quoted on page 7 of the Should You Believe In the Trinity magazine stating, Justin Martyr, who died about 165 C.E, called the prehuman Jesus a created angel who is other than the God who made all things.
As always, the Watchtower never gives the references of the source they quote. Not a single page or where this quotation can be found in Justins writings. I read Justins writings and nowhere did he write or taught Jesus in his prehuman life was an angel nor do you get the impression Justin taught Jesus was a created angel.
In fact, Justin Martyr taught that that the prehuman Jesus was God, not an angel. Justin did say that Christ was called an angel (Not Created), but explained that this was because Christ, who was actually God, took on the appearance of an angel. Thus, Justin writes that "The Father of the universe has a Son; who also, being the first-begotten Word of God, is even God. And of old he appeared in the shape of fire and in the likeness of an angel to Moses and to the other prophets..." Check it out for yourself. See the reference below. Go to the library and read it.
Justin Martyr, First Apology 63, in The Ante-Nicene Fathers: Translations of the Writings of the Fathers down to A.D. 325, ed. Alexander Roberts and James Donaldson, rev. ed. A. Cleveland Coxe (Grand Rapids: Williams B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1969 reprint [orig. 1885]), 1:184; hereafter cited as ANF.
Why didnt The Watchtower quote Justin Martyr accurately and gave Jehovahs Witnesses a false impression of Justin Martyrs teaching?
Why didnt The Watchtower quote Justin stating Jesus Christ is even God and He appeared in likeness of an angel to Moses and to the other prophets? Oh! I see, this is pornographic material. He believed Jesus is God and appeared to Moses. This is Trinitarian theology and it pornographic right?
Do you think Justin Martyr is pornographic when He said those words?
How about these words of Justin, do you think they are pornographic? Read below!
But both Him, and the Son (who came forth from Him and taught us these things, and the host of the other good angels who follow and are made like to Him), and the prophetic Spirit, we worship and adore, knowing them in reason and truth, and declaring without grudging to every one who wishes to learn, as we have been taught.
The Ante-Nicene Fathers, A.Roberts and J. Donaldson; Volume I; (Justin Martyr); The Sage Digital Library Collection; Version 1.0, Albany, Or, USA, 1996, Page 304.
Is this not pornographic? Justin said We (Did he mean We as pornographic men? Or We as true worshipers of Jehovah) worship them (Father, Son Holy Spirit)? This is pornographic material isnt it? According to the Watchtower, it is Trinitarian Theology and it is apostasy and its pornographic.
"Our teacher of these things is Jesus Christ, who also was born for this purpose, and was crucified under Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judaea, in the times of Tiberius Caesar; and that we reasonably worship Him, having learned that He is the Son of the true God Himself, and holding Him in the second place, and the prophetic Spirit in the third, we will prove. For they proclaim our madness to consist in this, that we give to a crucified man a place second to the unchangeable and eternal God, the Creator of all; for they do not discern the mystery that is herein, to which, as we make it plain to you, we pray you to give heed."
The Ante-Nicene Fathers, A.Roberts and J. Donaldson; Volume I; (Justin Martyr); The Sage Digital Library Collection; Version 1.0, Albany, Or, USA, 1996, Page 309.
My, My, My...This is sooooo pornographic. We reasonably worship Him (Jesus). Do you think Justin is pornographic when he said those words?
Check out this next pornographic material folks. Youre really gonna get a kick out of this one.
But if you knew, Trypho, continued I (Justin), who He (Jesus) is that is called at one time the Angel of great counsel, and a Man by Ezekiel, and like the Son of man by Daniel, and a Child by Isaiah, and Christ and God to be worshipped by David , and Christ and a Stone by many, and Wisdom by Solomon,
The Ante-Nicene Fathers, A.Roberts and J. Donaldson; Volume I; (Justin Martyr); The Sage Digital Library Collection; Version 1.0, Albany, Or, USA, 1996, Page 535.
Isnt this great pornographic material? Justin Martyr states King David worshipped Christ and David called Jesus God and worships him as God. This ladies and gentlemen is truly Trinitarian Theology. This is what Trinitarians believe. This is pornographic folks. Is Justin pornographic when he said these words? What would you call a person stating King David worshipped Jesus and called Jesus God? How would a Non-Trinitarian write that statement?
My point is this folks, The Watchtower is guilty by their own definition of using apostate literature. Justin is an apostate by Watchtower definition because he believes Jesus is God and worships him along with the Father and The Holy Spirit. If this is not Trinitarian Theology can you please explain what then is a Trinitarian please?
Secondly, the Watchtower is guilty for not providing any references of the quotations in the magazine Should You believe in the Trinity. And finally guilty of misquoting all the Church Fathers including Justin Martyr, the porno-man (AKA The ApostateMan.)
There is a reason why the Watchtower does not provide any references for the quotations of any sources they quote. The Jehovahs Witnesses will possibly research the quotes and will find out the anointed men known as the governing body as lied to them and finally, if the Jehovahs Witnesses would get the references of the Church Fathers, JWs would find out their wonderful Ante-Church Fathers were pornographic men who taught apostasy, which is the Trinity.
What about this comparison of Apostate Material with Pornography?
Are two Materials similar?
This like reading Playboy Baby!
Let us read the entire article on how the Watchtower compares apostate literature with Pornography.
In 1986 the Watchtower organization used the following reasoning to try and persuade its followers to keep away from any literature that would give an opposing view:
"If, out of curiosity, we were to read the literature of a known apostate, would that not be the same as inviting this enemy of true worship right into our home to sit down with us and relate his apostate ideas? Let us illustrate matters in this way: Suppose your teenage son received some pornographic material in the mail (Can you say Playboy or Penthouse Magazine? Emphasis in parenthesis is mine). What would you do? (Cancel the subscription you ignoramus. As you can see this is a poor analogy. Dont you think? I would question Jehovahs witnesses on what kind of material are they are receiving in the mail?) If he was inclined to read it out of curiosity, would you say: `Yes, son, go ahead and read it. It won't hurt you. (First of all, you dont read pornographic material. Its more than pictures than actual text. You look at the picture not read it.) From infancy we've taught you that immorality is bad. Besides, you need to know what's going on in the world in order to see that it's truly bad'? Absolutely not! Rather, you would surely point out the dangers of reading pornographic literature and would require that it be destroyed. Why? Because no matter how strong a person may be in the truth, if he feeds his mind on the perverted ideas found in such literature, his mind and heart will be effected...(Can you imagine a Jehovahs Witness Father pointing out the dangers of pornographic material to his son?) Well, if we would act so decisively to protect our children from exposure to pornography, should we not expect that our loving heavenly Father would similarly warn us from spiritual fornication, including apostasy? He says, Keep away from it! (How can you stay away from apostate material it if it is needed to point out the dangers of it? You need to know what is going on in the world.) (The Watchtower, March 15, 1986, p. 13).
So, according to the Watchtower Society, if a Jehovah's Witness receives literature critical of the organization, then it is similar to them receiving pornographic literature. Is this a reasonable comparison? No it is not. The reasons for this are obvious. Firstly, literature and pornographic material differ in that pornographic material. is designed to inflame the lusts whereas literature is designed to inform and educate. Secondly, pornographic literature is mostly consists of sexually provocative photographs, whereas literature mostly consists of text not pictures.
In addition, if we Born Again Christians are apostates (Pornographic if you will), we are a bad influence on Jehovahs Witnesses. You Jehovahs Witnesses should not be on this board. You are told to destroy apostate material and stay away from them. These are not my words, there're the Watchtower's.
