While chatting with forum friends the other day, we recognised the way that the GB have so cleverly set a faulty benchmark. Yes, a faulty set of scales or weights for all witnesses!
Two scriptures can even apply:
Proverbs 11:1 "The LORD detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights"
Proverbs 20:23 "The LORD detests double standards; he is not pleased by dishonest scales."
So just think about it. EVERYTHING that witnesses do. EVERY decision they make, EVERY choice they make, EVERY perspective on life etc is made using the "weights" or "measurements" of the Governing Body!
It could be likened to having a measuring tape that shows 1 meter in length. Then using that measurement, a whole building is constructed.
BUT, what if it is discovered AFTER completing the building that the measuring tape was only 90 cm, and NOT 1 meter in length?
Or what if the weights used on a scale were NOT the indicated 1 kg, but actually only 900grams??
The GB and WT Society have effectively done this to every JWs life! They have used inaccurate and distorted measurements that have adversely affected the lives of millions!
