: I am not aware of any other religion who's entire body of directors were put in prison and their headquarters closed. This compromise and loss of the ability to advance the interests of the kingdom was certainly quite the achievement. All accomplished during the time of inspection by Jesus.
The Bible did not explicitly say that Jesus was very smart or even that his eyes were all that good when he was doing his inspection. My observations are Bible-Based.
: They discarded The Finished Mystery book 80 years ago or so and now alternative military service is the norm.
The Finished Mystery book served its purpose and it was Jehovah's Will for it to be published and distributed when it was. With regards to the alternative military service flip-flop, well, Jehovah was just testing people, including ME who was indicted, tried, convicted and sentenced for refusing it. How do I know this? I know this because that is EXACTLY what my mother said when I brought the same thing up. Would my mother lie to her own son?
When I asked her why Jehovah let his chosen organization teach LIES to "test" people like me, she said I was "just bitter." I found her argument quite rational, compelling and sticking with the facts. Don't you?
: So if cutting some pages was a sin, they must really be sinning now, they have cut out the whole book. And now they do alternative service with impunity and have even joined the United Nations as a non-governmental organization.
Gary, Gary, Gary: just "wait on Jehovah." Jehovah will someday, somehow fix things that his only chosen people in these most critical times have totally screwed up. After all, they're "just imperfect men" who claim God-like status. How can you be so harsh on these humble people in these "critical times" when their cash--flow is suffering?
There is no worse sin than kicking a multi-national murderous Religious Printing Conglomorate which claims to be God's ONLY spokesman when they're down.
