    The WTS wanted to instill the importance of loyalty to them because they knew their doctrines were corrupt (1914) and not faithfully adherent to the bible, they were selling a tainted commercialized Gospel and they knew it.

    When your leaders call themselves Faithful and Discreet in fulfillment of Jesus' illustration, but say that the part about the evil slave is figurative and could never apply to them.

    From my association with JWs convinced me another point. Their spirituality remains stagnant—with the same spirituality level they had when they were associating with their former religion. This is because, once they are inside JW organization, they find that the focus of JWs are on the negative side of other religions—especially of the Christendom. It has its inevitable results: The more one dwells on what he doesn't want to see in others, the more of it he creates. What one puts his attention on grows. Thus they become more and more like the very organizations they publicly denounce!

    This is in contrast to what Jesus said as of paramount importance which all the prophets summed up: “In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (Mathew 7:12) Violation of this most important law which is the very foundation of all prophets means they flout all laws which means they fulfill the requirement of becoming the number 666 themselves.

    Interestingly, context of this verse says: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Mathew 7:1, 2) In other words, don’t focus on the negatives of others; and if you do so, you will reap the same from others.

    ....when you plan your wedding reception and are told by the elders that serving alcohol would be very unwise, as the groom would be responsible if anyone drank more than they should (field sobriety determined by the local BOE), but it's nobody's business if the same elders have five slices of cake after the dinner.

    Even Scientologists laugh at you.

    Mormonism seems reasonable.

    the Westborough Baptist Morons think you're too extreme.

    When you are told by the G.B. that have to witness to, for, and about Jehovah God and the Christian Greek Scriptures say no such thing ? Look up their K.I. Translation of The Christian Greek Scriptures .

    Christians are continuously told to witness about Jesus ,for Jesus and about Jesus ,over 30 times , their is not one scripture in the Christian Greek Scriptures that says Christians are to be witnesses of Jehovah , not one.

    Why would the New Testament / Christian Greek Scriptures state that the name Jesus is to be held above every other name in heaven on earth or under the earth. ? and not Jehovah ?

    Phil.2.9-11

    Christians are to be witnesses of Jesus Christ not Jehovah.

    You know you're in the wrong religion when: You're physically and mentally abused by your father under the nose of the Circuit Overseer and that Circuit Overseer turns out to be the JW Lawyer at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
