    Well here are a few words that the Watchtower / JW`s religion frequently use that do not appear in the bible , either , Old Testament or the New Testament.

    Organization , Sovereignty , Reinstatement , Governing Body .

    And in the Christian Greek Scriptures ,the Kingdom Interlinear that the JW`s published themselves , a word for word Translation of the Greek to English does not contain the name / word Jehovah ......Nowhere .

    I'll add dedication. It appears nowhere in reference to baptism.

    But they play tricks with words using semantics. An organisation is something made up of organs. A body is an organisation, so they use concept of the body of Christ to insist on unity.

    Yes they do- but they somehow forget that the Bible was assembled by Jesuit priests who picked and choose what books were to go into the 66 - and the JW organization closely resembles some of the Mormon church with their quorum (12) only its GB for witnesses, and the catholic church with its Pope (GB) archbishops (CO), priests (elders) \

    The Catholic church still has unreleased scrolls that have not been published to this day. Would they have been important to the world?

    They have removed and changed wording which scripture says not to do and just about every belief system has their own copyrighted bible so what do we really know that is truthful?

    Adding the name Jehovah to the NT 237 times and justify doing so by saying they are quotations from the OT where the tetragrammatton is found. However, over half of the 237 have nothing to do with OT passages.

    Every doctrine which is unique to Jehovah's Witnesses is extra-biblical...including their entire eschatology I.e., 1914, 1918, 1919, 1925, 1975 and all the 1920s trumpets etc.

    So ask any of them to show in the Bible, clear evidence of:

    1. A governing body that has any function or authority resembling the current GB. To that, have them show you where it says Governing Body in the bible anywhere? (remind them of what JWs say as to why the word Trinity doesn't appear in the bible to catholics)

    2. Use the bible to clearly identify the year 1914 as special?

    3. Show clear evidence for "overlapping generations".

    Wait for crickets.

    Of course the entire "religion" is based on those 3 things.

    From my research, a common denominator in all WBTS false doctrine (ie that not soundly based on the Bible) is Theosophy/Theo Sufism. Sufism is a kind of Islam. The whirling dervishes are Sufists. They whirl and whirl until they get dizzy. This dizziness acts like an anaesthetic so they feel no pain.

    Theo Sufism is also connected to Fabianism and the establishment of the Lucifer Trust (Lucis Trust). Leading Theo Sufist, Alice Ann Bailey set up the Lucis Trust, while another prominent Theo Sufist, Annie Besant was a speaker for the Fabians. Annie was sponsored for membership of the Fabians by George Bernard Shaw.

    In addition to all this, 1914 is by used by WBTS to signal a new age. Amongst some who accept the patriachs but reject the Messiah, Jesus Christ, there is a belief that the Messiah is not a person but an age. The 1914 doctrine may reflect this concept of a Messianic Age.

    Communism also rests on this idea of new ages as does the postivism of August Comte who perpetuated the search for a science of society through a 3-staged theory of progress which he derived from Saint-Simon (who believed in Utopia). Comte's idea was that mankind moved from a theological to a metaphysical to a positive era. Positivism had authoritarian implications. It relied on intellectual authority. The link between enlightenment and despotism in the 18th century was not accidental. Saint-Simon had consistently appealed to monarchial authority from his first petitions to Napoleon until his last appeal for a New Christianity to the leaders of the Holy Alliance.
