    All of these numerous sects were built and cultivated out the ignorance and acceptance of people believing their godly righteous chosen ones interpretation of the bible. (GB members)

    Why because these godly chosen ones said they were being guided by god's holy spirit.

    The JW sect is no different and that regards..

    For each religion there's a starting point and then dogma and beliefs change over time as ideas are revised or culled.

    Jehovah's Witnesses have done this and claimed that it was the light getting brighter through divine revelation.

    However the early Christian Church did the very same thing, to which JWs point their finger at the history and claim that it is evidence of the great apostasy from the teachings of the disciples of Jesus.

    You can't have it both ways. Every person can interpret the Bible as they see fit, declaring "no prophecy springs from private interpretation but as God has moved them by holy spirit" (broad paraphrase). If someone says they disagree then the new church decries that they are going against God and his spirit! Just as the JW Org does.

    The whole thing is a joke. Religions are all man-made.

    Religions are all man-made.

    Absolutely true but gods as they were ideologically perceived by the ancients were a means of controlling people socially and gave power to those who self proclaimed were being channeled directly from these gods..

    So true in what happens even today , men make the proclamations that " The" god is guiding them spiritually so their rules of behavior or expressed doctrines are to not to be questioned.

    Self empowerment to men re occurs again,
