Telling us all that the preaching work would be completed in the 20th Century.
Lies from the watchtower
Here's one that is right up to date. It's on their shitty website at jw.borg.
From the frequently asked questions part under Membership:
What if a person no longer preaches or attends your meetings? Do you view that person as having resigned?
No, we do not. Resigning, or disassociating oneself, is different from becoming weak in faith. Often, those who for a time slow down or stop in their worship have not abandoned their faith but are suffering from discouragement. Rather than shunning such ones, we try to give them consolation and support. (1 Thessalonians 5:14; Jude 22) If the person wants help, congregation elders take the lead in providing spiritual assistance.—Galatians 6:1; 1 Peter 5:1-3.
However, the elders are not authorized to coerce or pressure someone to remain as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Each person makes his own choice regarding religion. (Joshua 24:15) We believe that those who worship God must do so willingly, from the heart.—Psalm 110:3;Matthew 22:37.
Now we all know that this information is pretty close to out right lying because if you stop attending meetings and stop going out in service, you WILL be shunned, it's only a matter of time.
Oh, here's another. From Nov 2017
After many had come forward and said they were strongly discouraged from going to the police for child sex abuse, the org said,
"The organisation said it did not "shield" abusers and any suggestion of a cover-up was "absolutely false".
Must be apostate driven lies. Wonder what God they serve? The God of the lie maybe
Copied from a recent thread: Lie by omission: The UN membership from 1992.
Sanchy: (1) "Library access" is not an acceptable excuse for Watchtower to break it's own rules. Any individual JW doing the same would have been reprimanded. The double standard is obvious. (2) The UN affiliation was only revoked due to media publicity. If a Witness confesses only after their sin is public knowledge there is high probability elders will not see their confession as a sign of repentance. (3) If a Witness can be disassociated for membership with political organizations, the same standard should apply to the Watchtower Society
As an example, think about the apostates driven lies and dishonesty that
Jehovah's Organization is permissive towards pedophiles.
That statement by Lett in itself is a self serving lie in that some exJWS have come out and proclaimed that the WTS mishandled situations of pedophilia within the organization with carelessness and irresponsibly both to the accused and to unfortunate victims.
Because they were more concerned more about holding up a pretentious image around the organization, which held more importance than children's health and welfare.
The recent law suits against the WTS have shown this to be so as well.
