*** w65 7/1 391 What Is Required to Understand the Bible? *** He does not impart his holy spirit and an understanding and appreciation of his Word apart from his visible organization.
*** w67 10/1 587 Finding Freedom with Jehovah's Visible Organization *** Thus the Bible is an organizational book and belongs to the Christian congregation as an organization, not to individuals, regardless of how sincerely they may believe that they can interpret the Bible. For this reason the Bible cannot be properly understood without Jehovahs visible organization in mind.
*** w81 2/15 19 Do We Need Help to Understand the Bible? *** We all need help to understand the Bible, and we cannot find the Scriptural guidance we need outside the faithful and discreet slave organization.
*** w81 8/15 28-9 Serving Jehovah "Shoulder to Shoulder" *** They say that it is sufficient to read the Bible exclusively, either alone or in small groups at home. But, strangely, through such Bible reading, they have reverted right back to the apostate doctrines that commentaries by Christendoms clergy were teaching 100 years ago, and some have even returned to celebrating Christendoms festivals again, such as the Roman Saturnalia of December 25! Jesus and his apostles warned against such lawless ones.
i rest my case.
anyone care to cross examine?
