    Awake 22nd April 1970 p. 8 Changes That Disturb People

    "Why is there this decline in religion? …..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....A businessman in Medellín, Colombia, expressed the effect the changes have had on many......"Just ten years ago we Catholics had the absolute truth, we put all our faith in this. Now the pope and our priests (GB & elders) 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?”

    I can feel schadenfreude coming on!

    Great quote!

    Here is more irony for us to consider

    *** w30 10/1 p. 301 Millions of Prisoners to Hear the Gospel***: "Satans organization claims to be Gods organization, and persecutes those who are actually members of Gods organization. Satans organization sails under the high-sounding name of "Christendom". It boasts of a membership of over 500,000,000 persons. Its members are in bondage to creeds, customs, rites and ceremonies; they dare not disown these or criticize or expose them. To do so would bring down on their heads taunts, reproaches, disfellowship and persecution. Many thousands of the Lords people are held in these denominations as prisoners, afraid to express their disapproval of the creeds, methods and customs of the organization."

    This is the problem with those making religious positions as their career. In spirituality, one cannot keep on giving new truths. He would go on updating and updating finally reaching where he has to repeat the whole thing from the beginning.

    Easy and practical way is to go into silence and in that silence one can hear the truth directly from God, as Jesus himself taught with his life. (Mark 1:35; John 8:1)

    Jehovah`s Witnesses have a real problem with "Foot in Mouth Disease"

    What we say and print in our publications doesn`t apply to us it only applies to Christendoms Religions.

    Luke 6:42 ....".Hypocrite! First extract the rafter from your own eye"........

    Jehovah's Witnesses are not only oblivious to the fact that their org has changed the historical date of Jerusalem's destruction to 607 BCE, but also that their hierarchy can alter meanings in the English language! According to virtually every definition, the word CHRISTENDOM effectively means being a part of Christianity. -

    1: Christianity

    2: The part of the world in which Christianity prevails

    ...the "Christian world": worldwide community of Christians, the adherents of Christianity, the Christian-majority countries, the countries in which Christianity dominates or prevails... - The worldwide body or society of Christians.

    Jehovah's Witnesses' indoctrination teaches them that the word CHRISTENDOM is a derogatory term which describes false Christianity and false Christians.

    Wake up JW's - you are all members of Christendom!

    Yes! Great article.

    I sent that to my Elder father...

    He did not see the irony. I didn't bother trying to explain it to someone who chooses to remain ignorant.

    Classic example of carefully crafted projection.

    Have read many posts about the 8 oligarchs up in Warwick possessing very little in academic education. Either they are hiring mind control experts to write this insidiously pervasive mindwash or there is a group of Home grown ones doing this job.

    One thing is certain. This J.W. Org. Is the devils spawn! ( devil used figuratively)
