God Cannot Lie, But God's Organization Can?
Sometimes I think I want to say to my uber in mother - "you know as sad as you are that we are no longer attending meetings etc, that is how sad we are that you cannot see that you are being lied to and misled".
It makes me very angry.
Freedom rocks.......I went through the anger stage around 12 years ago.....the good thing though is that it passes.....to the really,really angry stage......and then thankfully.....the "fucking fuming" stage replaces that...
However when the heroin kicks in....it all fades away to nothing.
Just joking....no heroin was harmed in the making of this post.
The expenses in connection with this assembly amount to... (exorbitant figure)
It has been reported that an amount per person is pre-determined and used to calculate the so-called 'expenses'.
If you're in the "troof" it's ok to lie!
Religions (all) are an established upon a set of lies to evoke power and control toward men, this includes the JWS religion.
Geoffrey Jackson most famous statement at the royal commission when he said it would be presumptuous to say they are the only channel of communication. That is the mother of all lies. Just like they fail to tell the sheep God made exceptions to the blood rule in Israel when someone health was at risk ,such was the case when soldiers ate unbled meat. The more they print the more bullshit they spread. Remember they use to brag about the 1922 Ohio convention millions now living will never die . As someone pointed out earlier the lies continue in the denial of 75 video.
Chook - "Geoffrey Jackson most famous statement at the royal commission when he said it would be presumptuous to say they are the only channel of communication. That is the mother of all lies."
Actually, I thought it was a moment of rather refreshing (if unintentional) honesty.
Thanks for all the observations. Note that Jackson said it would SEEM to be presumptuous so he really did not answer the question directly. Also, certain beliefs may be proven wrong with time but did not start out as lies, but rather as false beliefs. Most witnesses have allowed that to happen without it changing their view of the organization. But lying on the part of a religious organization is most disturbing.
As has been pointed out, one of the most disturbing things I discovered about the organization is their 'doctrine' on lying. This has remained the same for decades, that lying is by their definition saying something false to someone who is entitled to know the truth...
Rather than allow for circumstances where it is understandable that humans might lie, the word lie is actually redefined so that a total lie is suddenly not even considered a lie at all with their disclaimer attached!
I have pondered why they would define it this exact way for so many decades, and the only explanation I can come up with is that it is a liar's definition of a lie!
