    OR even "Since you claim to be one of the Faithful and Discreet Slave, please explain the history of all of the many changes to this teaching, and the reasons why you changed it each time."

    How does this reconcile with the Faithful Slaves statement:

    -- g70 4/22 p. 8 Changes That Disturb People
    "Yes, millions of persons have been shocked to learn that things they were taught as being vital for salvation are now considered by their church to be wrong. Have you, too, felt discouragement or even despair because of what is happening in your church? A businessman in Colombia expressed the effect the changes have had on many."Tell me," he asked, "how can I have confidence in anything? How can I believe in the Bible, in God, or have faith? Just ten years ago we Catholics had the absolute truth, we put all our faith in this. Now the pope and our priests are telling us this is not the way to believe any more, but we are to believe 'new things.' How do I know the 'new things' will be the truth in five years?"

    Do you have any proof that God has communicated with you and appointed you as the undisputed, unchallenged leaders of Christ's followers on earth?

    Was there any reason other than obtaining a library card for the Watchtower leaders to become NGO members with the scarlet beast?

    Pertaining to the RC: Why don't you make reporting sex abuse mandatory so that trained professionals can make sure the situation is handled properly?

    How about "Are you prophets?"

    If 'yes' then "so why has nothing you've predicted ever come true? Where do your revelations come from and why do your doctrines keep changing?"
    If 'no' then "so why do 8 million JW's have to follow your commandments on pain of losing their families?"

    OK, I'll stop now .

    Sorry, one more.

    In Awake! 1994 May 22 p.2 Youths Who Put God First (3-15) you wrote
    In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue."

    Four years later you contradicted this by saying (w98 12/1 p.14 Defending Our Faith)
    "Jehovah's Witnesses have been targets of false accusations - barefaced lies and twisted presentations of their beliefs... The accusation that numerous children of Jehovah's Witnesses die each year as a result of refusing blood transfusions is totally unfounded."

    Then in w04 6/15 p. 23 par. 16 'Be Guided by the Living God' you amended the Blood Policy:
    What about small fractions extracted from a primary component, such as serums containing antibodies to fight a disease or to counteract snake venom? (See page 30, paragraph 4.) Some have concluded that such minute fractions are, in effect, no longer blood and hence are not covered by the command ‘to abstain from blood.’ (Acts 15:29; 21:25; page 31, paragraph 1) That is their responsibility."

    Question: Did all those children that you were so proud to tell us had died in 1994, all die needlessly because of your incorrect doctrines which you later changed in 2004?

    When you were born, did your mother and father place you in a space pod and tell you one day you will be a god to them?

    Also do you see pink unicorns jumping over rainbows on a regular basis?

    Now that we know that Geoffrey Jackson will be questioned by the Royal Commission on Friday, is there anything that anyone can think off that the Royal Commission needs to know before he is questioned by them?

    How do you reconcile these 2 quotes that you approved?

    Awake! 2009 July p.29 (p.28) "No one should be forced to worship in a way that he finds unacceptable or be made to choose between his beliefs and his family."

    "What if we have a relative or a close friend who is disfellowshipped? Now our loyalty is on the line, not to that person, but to God. Jehovah is watching us to see whether we will abide by his command not to have contact with anyone who is disfellowshipped.—Read 1 Corinthians 5:11-13.

    Consider just one example of the good that can come when a family loyally upholds Jehovah’s decree not to associate with disfellowshipped relatives. A young man had been disfellowshipped for over ten years, during which time his father, mother, and four brothers “quit mixing in company” with him. At times, he tried to involve himself in their activities, but to their credit, each member of the family was steadfast in not having any contact with him. After he was reinstated, he said that he always missed the association with his family, especially at night when he was alone. But, he admitted, had the family associated with him even a little, that small dose would have satisfied him. However, because he did not receive even the slightest communication from any of his family, the burning desire to be with them became one motivating factor in his restoring his relationship with Jehovah." Watchtower 2012 Apr 15 p.12

    Sorry, I'm possessed....

    "Why have you placed a ban on taking white blood cells medically, but it's still acceptable to breast feed, which milk contains white blood cells?"

    Mr Jackson, you state that the 'two witness' rule is a scriptural requirement that God demands we adhere to. With God's requirements in mind could you please provide the names of the two witnesses that can verify that God and Jesus chose you to be one of the anointed?

    Since this inquiry is about Child protection,

    Mr Jackson, -- do you believe God created, is the father of the human race?----- if yes:

    Would you not say he was a neglectful parent to allow a talking snake to bring about their, and all their offspring's painful death at an early age*?

    * a measly max. 980 years out of an eternity?
