    Fisherman is casting a wide net, considering all religion outside wt inc. , @ warwick and before 1919, the wicked prostitute, the 'Empire of false religion'. Empirical evidence:

    If you examine the teachings of the wt f&ds, since 1919 you realize that the empire of FALSE religion has more members than many realize.

    Can the certified "true" religion be based on false teachings?

    🙄 The 'Bible Students' in 1919 had no concept of a 'world empire of false religion'. The term is nonsense invented by the Watch Tower Society in 1963. Jehovah's Witnesses is just another nutty Adventist denomination, and they spout various things that are not mentioned in the Bible. For example:

    • a global paradise
    • a great spiritual temple
    • 70 years of Jewish exile
    • separate 'earthly or heavenly hopes'
    • resurrection during the 1,000 years
    • a 'final test' after 1,000 years

    Pretty much all of their teachings relating to the 'end times' are not only wrong but also in the wrong order compared to what the Bible actually says.

    As such, they are just one more of the 'false religions' that they denounce.

    ''I'm more interested to know if they are back to bashing the UN, now that they don't have access to their library as an affiliated NGO.'

    As far as I'm concerned, they are STILL affiliated with the UN but as with the O.S.C.E. Another affiliate of the UN, but with some European branch.

    The latest wt study about this topic reaffirmed all the beliefs including the UN and Babyon the Great.

    Call her whatever you like. For example, the image in Daniel refers to all political empires. BTG refers to all false religions. “A rose by any other name…”

    (Revelation 17:5) On her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes and of the disgusting things of the earth.”

    What does "the mother of the prostitutes" mean according to WT?

    [re p. 244] She is “the mother of the harlots” because all the individual false religions in the world, including the many sects in Christendom, are like her daughters, imitating her in committing spiritual harlotry.

    So the lesser churches on earth, "all the individual false religions in the world" are her daughters. Therefore they are not "Babylon the Great". That term refers to their "mother".

    For more on this, see the article "Babylon the Great", found here:

    any organisation, individual that does not recognize the everlapping group in the 1914 generation is of the empire of false religion aka wt's BTG. FM.

    this "false " religion notion puzzles me.

    There is only one god--isnt there ?

    All religions worship why are they "false"

    Or is it a case of a business masquerading as a religion being the false one ?

    Religions can’t all be right. But they can all be wrong.
