Another Galling Meeting!
"One Hundred Years Under Kingdom Rulership!"
Ha, only in dangerous mind control cults.
"The end didn't come yet." SO MORE OF YOU CAN BE SAVED. YOUR PRAYERS FOR MORE TIME HAVE BEEN HEARD.
"Adjustments in understanding." SPIRIT-DIRECTED INSTEAD OF INSPIRED. WE WERE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT, BUT WE ARE RIGHT RIGHT NOW.
"What is asked of us is foolish." OBEY NO MATTER WHAT WE SAY AND YOU WILL BE BLESSED. PRETEND WE WERE NEVER WRONG BECAUSE WE ARE PROBABLY RIGHT ON THIS.
"One hundred years under kingdom rulership." SO IT MUST BE IMMINENT THAT WE GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME.
"The remarkable growth that we see today is the result of our faith in God and full acceptance of the Bible..."
One of many poignant lies of this religious publishing house, in reality the WTS has been selective to only certain scriptures that supports their false doctrines and avoided many scriptures that don't, particularly to the spoken words of Jesus in how he instructed how his Gospel is to be preached.
The JWS as a Christian based religion has shown quite the unremarkable growth since its been door to door preaching and alluring people to the organization for over 140 years and has only 8 million members world wide.
Is it because people can see its a commercialized fraud structured and built around a fraudulently corrupt publishing house ?
Are they getting sloppy?
They've been sloppy for decades.
Finkelstein - "Is it because people can see its a commercialized fraud structured and built around a fraudulently corrupt publishing house ? "
Oh, gosh, no.
Deep down inside, they know it's The Truth; they just want to be wicked.
(My dad actually said this once. Fortunately, he lightened up as he got older.)
