    Much is being said during the USA election run-up and Trump-Clinton debates about checking the facts of statements made by each candidate. This is, of course, serious stuff as the direction of the countries future depends on just who is elected into office of the President of the United States of America. NOT President of the local 'glee club' or the 'Southside Knitting Society' , BUT, the President of the United States of America. Makes perfect sense to all interested parties to have someone checking out each and every statement made by those two running for office and forwarding their findings to the public.

    Now, turning our attention to another most important office, that of the Faithful and Discreet Slave, would it not be of interest to every Jehovah's Witnesses, worldwide, to be confident that each and every statement they utter is, in fact, true? A reasonable person [to use the often used statement of the Organization] would want to ensure that each statement was true. Therefore no one should have a valid objection to a person or persons, perhaps a well organized group of persons within the Organization, checking each and every statement of the Governing Body and reporting to the worldwide brotherhood the results they may find. This of course would require that they examine, carefully, all printed literature of the Watchtower Society, all worldly publications made reference to, as well as all records and financial accounts relating to statements made by any of the Governing Body. They could then forward their findings to all interested. This, of course, would be in their best interest as God's Word instructs every follower to make sure of each and every thing you are taught so as not to be mislead. Acts 17:11 'Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.'

    My question is, What response would such a person or group receive from the Organization?

    Likely no response.

    After all there are no facts really, only interpretations.

    That you are an apostate, a bad apple, bad association, and going through the wrong path for questioning.

    Facts is a dirty word to the Watchtower. You can run a cult on facts.

    Fact? It's such a worldly word.

  • blondie

    Bullshit. Not going to get drawn in on this again as it's been done to death. Shame on you Slim for yet another attempt at derailing a decent topic.
