    Who knows? Maybe the rocks will call out yet.

    Didn`t the Watchtower make the claim that archaeology was doing that ?

    IDK, Smiddy. If they did, I missed it. But it sounds like something they would say.

    Can't find the word 'organisation' in the Scriptures...or even 'organization'..

    When you look at a lot of Scripture, Old and New Testament, you see quite plainly that the people claiming to be god's Org at the time were apparently no such thing.

    Hence Old testament Prophets had to be sent time and again to steer Israel on the right path, those claiming to be god's org, the priests etc had failed. And in the N.T we have first John the Baptist, then Jesus, then Paul.

    It seems that for the majority of History those claiming to be god's Org were Charlatans, as are the G.B of JW org today.

    My wife has family who are in the 2 X 2's. They're pretty legalistic - women must wear their hair long, they usually put it up into a "bun" and don't wear it any other way. No TV in the home. No alcohol. Meetings are only in private homes - no church buildings. Ministers (called "workers") can be men or women, but marriage for them is unofficially frowned on. Dress must be plain. They also don't celebrate Christmas and believe their church is the only true one. Overall they are pretty pleasant people and will mix with family members who don't belong to their group. They don't believe Jesus is God.
