People here often use the example of the Boroeans, who examined the scriptures to test 'whether theses things were so' to try and encourage JWs to test their beliefs and see if they really measure up to the bible.
As usual, the Society twist scriptures so that they mean the opposite of what was intended. Anyway, that's the feeling I get after reading this study article:
So, i t doesnt mean that you should question a particular religion to see if its the truth, it means that you should test yourself, to see if you are still a good dubbie.

Keep Practicing The Things You Have Learned
Page 18, paragraph 11
In this regard, Paul wrote: Keep testing whether you are in the faith. (2 Corinthians 13:5) The apostle urged us to keep testing ourselves to determine whether we are adhering to the body of Christian beliefs. If our ears are inclined towards disgruntled ones (what, like raped children? dm.), we need to analyse ourselves prayerfully. Are we inclined to find fault with Jehovahs people?
12. Rather than being critical, let us maintain a spiritually healthy view of the information received through personal study and congregation meetings. And instead of questioning Gods Word (read Watchtower dm.), how much wiser it is to have the attitude of the first-century Beroeans who examined the scriptures closely! Then, let us act on what we learn, turning down false stories and clinging to the truth.
