The old bob and weave move...what a chicken#$%^ answer.
Bill Bowen's visit to the Kingdom Hall Sunday
An answer for everything. JW wordspeak that feigns any responsibility whatsoever.
Blame the victim, perpetually. Pray and support the perpetrator.
the JW's may have to preach a condemnation message to
the nations after Babylon the Great is destroyed. I
guess basically the message would be "It's too late to
repent -- you're all going to die, and there's nothing
you can do about it!" Wow, that sounds like "good
news" to me.
It has been a long time since this has been emphasized. It was in 1981 WTs.
*** w81 3/15 23-4 Glorifying the Ministry ***
14 As indicated in the sign language of Revelation, the secular political powers will stop having unions of Church and State. They will break off having intimate relations with the international religious prostitute. They will unseat her from their back, strip her of her claims to royalty with its scarlet and purple, rob her of her gold, pearls and precious stones with which she has gaudily exhibited herself. From her hand they will snatch away the "golden cup" that is filled with all the unclean and disgusting things, the goblet from which she has made all the peoples drink to their becoming befuddled as if they were intoxicated. Her ornate religious buildings they will convert into places for common, secular uses, or will even burn them down after they have despoiled them of their ill-gotten wealth. Woe for the day of reckoning upon Babylon the Great during "the great tribulation"!—Rev. 17:1-18; 7:14.
15 What will that future course of the political powers of the world mean for the Christian witnesses of Jehovah? This: their ministry in behalf of the interests of God’s kingdom will be rejected. No longer will they be preaching "the year of goodwill on the part of Jehovah." Even after the despoiling of Babylon the Great, they must unflinchingly carry on the proclaiming of the "day of vengeance on the part of our God."—Isa. 61:1, 2; 59:17, 18.

18 We can expect a similar expansion of our preaching activity now, at this climax of the ages. No doubt, before the "great tribulation" is finished, we will see the greatest witness to God’s name and kingdom in the history of this world. And while now the witness yet includes the invitation to come to Jehovah’s organization for salvation, the time no doubt will come when the message takes on a harder tone, like a "great war cry." Revelation 16:21 shows that "a great hail with every stone about the weight of a talent [nearly 100 pounds] descended out of heaven upon the men, and the men blasphemed God due to the plague of hail, because the plague of it was unusually great." Hailstones are frozen, hardened water. So this pictures how, at the end, Jehovah’s judgment message sent down upon disobedient mankind will be like a barrage of hard-hitting hail. The fact that the plague of hailstones is spoken of as being "unusually great" suggests that at the very end there will be a hard proclamation of Jehovah’s "day of vengeance" by Jehovah’s servants.
Wow. That kind of crap being published...they are still at it; prophecying, telling the way the future will unfold, etc. It's quite madening that they say only Jahovah knows the details of how and when things will end but then they go ahead giving prophecy and call it being "expectant". As if the book of Revalation gives a 100% clear picture of how things will unfold...it doesn't. Revalation was a vision that John had, not a word for word dictation of every detail of what the future holds.
But at the same time I'm really sad to see that so many lives are wasting away from following a useless, human organization.
You know, they tell us that everyone that lives at the headquarters in New York is not paid, but "supported". What the hell is the difference? If those living at the headquarters would wise up, they would realize that at least they should be GETTING PAID MORE for letting their lives pass by them, instead of trying to subside on meager handouts given them by the penny pinching WT power mongers.
Regarding the comment made by the woman at the Kindom Hall when Bill went to visit: JWs flaunt the fact that they are so loving, and concerned about those that are not members of their twisted cult; they talk about how they want to share Jahovah's love with those who are not in the "truth" (a.k.a. "lies"). WOW!!! WHAT FREAKING HYPOCRITES!! The WT is so riddled with hypocricy, lies, injustice, power brokering, child/spouse/family sex abuse, supremicy, racism, opression, willingness to cover up lies, deceit, rape, murder, theft, and everything else, how can they even begin to think that their organization, the DESIGNATED EXCRAMENT of the universe, could begin to pass judgement about other people that are more upright and honest than that hypocritical org. could ever be?? RRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!! X-(
But at the same time, they are people, being misguided and destroyed, so I feel compassion for them. :-/
Cheers to Bill Bowen for his work with exposing the child sex crimes and hypocricy that are ever so prevailant in the BORG, and my hat is off to Randy Waters for being so diligent in trying to reach them.
The more things change, the more they remain the same!
Let's keep praying for those still under the "spell" of the organization.
: It is not always apostates that spread lies about the
JW's, sometimes it is the news media. For instance,
recently there was a television show about child abuse
in the Jehovah's Witnesses, and I can't remember the
name of the show, but the news media itself really
distorted the facts about Jehovah's Witnesses in that
Program. It's like that old saying, 'believe nothing you
hear, and only half of what you see.'"
One thing I can say for sure: dubs are really BIG on facts, and not heresay and innuendo!
Also couldn't help but notice something in the excerpt that Blondie posted "come to Jehovah's organization for salvation".
Same nonsense as usual.
Of course, they'll never say what the exact nature of the accusations are, and then follow through with solid refutations of them; they're just content to scream "LIES!!!!" and do nothing more. With such solid debating and conversational techniques, who can disagree with them?
