Watchtower methods of subliminal messages

    It isn't necessary to use words to convey a subliminal message.

    Take for example the use of illustrations (photos) found on page 26 in the February 15, 2001 issue of the Watchtower.

    The three pictures show witnessing in differenet parts of the earth, namely the East, Europe, and Africa.

    1. Woman in smart asian dress with hat.
    2. Man with black clothing replete with beret.
    3. African man with long sari type robe which is light brown in
    colour, quite smart and clean.

    In each picture the Witness is dressed in western business clothing whereas the person being witnessed to (the worldly person) is in native dress.

    Is this another subliminal message? Native or customary dress marks an individual as wordly?

    The caption reads: "By speaking the pure language, JWs offer people the Bible's comforting message."

    Why then do the witnesses in formal witnessing have to be wearing smart European business type clothing?
    Maybe even white supremacist overtones?

    The apostle Paul said of his ministry: "To those without law, I became as without law, although I am not without law toward Christ.....I have become all things to people of all sorts, that I MIGHT BY ALL MEANS SAVE SOME."

    Also, if you turn the page upside down, then you will see a coke can in the background.

    Now then, Sir Fred,

    You know I come from a certain royal stock but have appreciated that the aristocracy seldom have an answer to argument. "It's so because it's so" seems to be thie retort.

    Now, a neat little deflection by you about a coke bottle, but would you please address the question. Can you? Or are you admitting there is no valid answer?

    Hey Ozzie KKK,

    The reason why they are wearing European clothing is because they are from Europe.

  • ianao

    Well DUH Freddie.

    TR, I think Fred needs another award....

  • willy_think

    The reason why they are wearing European clothing is because of the message. i think you know the one CONFORM OR BE INILATED! CONFORM OR BE WORLDLY! CONFORM OR BE SHUNED! CONFORM! CONFORM! CONFORM!

    the ideas and opinions expressed in this post do not necessiarly represent those of the WTB&TS inc. or any of it's subsidiary corporations.

    I have been skeptical of those mirror images from Watchtower material that many of you have seen. Afterall, if you mirror any given pictures, you may be able to see anything you can imagine. However, after learning of Leonardo Da Vinci's mirroring techniques, which can only be rooted in the occult law of reversal, I think there is weight to the notion that the WTBTS is using subliminal techniques, which is really a form of black magic.

    And y does Jesus in heaven as a spirit dude ALWAYS have whitefella features? What's wrong with giving him some lovely Asiatic eyes? More people have Asian features than any other type on earth.
