    Everybody refers to the black book as the bible, not the Warwick apostles .Silver book refered to holy scripture. Renamed father- Jehovah ,Jesus - Michael , FDS as themselves , ect ect. There is not enough room on my computer to have a comprehensive list.

    That microwave thing is a new one to me. Almost fell out of my chair laughing at that one. "radiation hazards" LOL

    I guess it's what can you expect from a group of people that discourage higher education. Simple science escapes them.

    1) God's Grace > God's undeserved kindness

    JWs do not understand this concept as they consider their 'works' (hours spent preaching) to be fundamental in whether they will be judged worthy of entering God's kingdom.

    2) True Christian = Jehovah's Witness, not follower of Christ

    They say "the Truth" while meaning "the Cult."

    Baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit > Father, Son and Spirit Directed Earthly Organization

    They say podium not pulpit.

    They say information board not bulletin board. That's because the word bulletin derives from the Latin "bulla" which originally meant a papal edict.
