That title, “Buy Truth and Never Sell It”. Is that not our goal has JW’s, to try to sell the truth to those who have the right heart condition to accept it?
Para 9: “When the fishermen Peter and Andrew were invited by Jesus to become “fishers of men,” they “abandoned their nets.” (Matt. 4:18-20) Of course, most of those who learn the truth today cannot simply walk away from their jobs.”
Notice that how it is wording here in the WT, would have you conclude that Peter & Andrew “abandoned their nets” for good, never to return to fishing. But in John Chap 21, Peter is out fishing again.
Para 11: “Though we do not want to cause division, some friends and close family members may distance themselves from us or even oppose our newfound faith”.
Really! Is this not exactly what we are told to do as JWs if some of our witness friends or close family members wake up to the reality of the TTATT?
Para 12: When Aaron learnt that “God’s name, could be pronounced “Jehovah.” Excitedly, he went to the synagogue to share his wonderful discovery with the rabbis. Their reaction was not what Aaron expected. Instead of sharing his joy of learning the truth about God’s name, they spit on him and treated him as an outcast. His family bonds became strained. Undaunted, he continued to buy truth and served as a bold Witness of Jehovah for the rest of his life. Like Aaron, in order to walk in the truth, we are willing to pay the price of accepting whatever changes may occur in our social status or family relationships”.
Let’s turn the tables of this one. What if you, as one of JW’s learnt some facts about the WTBTS that you were unaware of, e.g: the origin of the 1914 date and how the history of it has been rewritten by WT to make it sound good. Or the making up of earthquake statistics based on false data that on the surface appears to be correct. And you then go running to the Elders or some other witness with these (facts) truths, are they not going to likewise treat you as a wicked person, an outcast? Or as in the case with me, even before checking out any of my findings to verify them, I was accused of being an apostate. Now that was one way to instantly shut me up, a faithful JW at the time being told I was apostate. That event was the beginning to me waking up.
