    LHG,

    You are absolutely correct. Phrases like that are called “thought stopping cliches”

    Heres another one:

    ”We aren’t like other religions, we follow the Bible.”

    Blondie, you are correct. When reading any Watchtower article, especially their study articles, simply transpose "Watchtower Bible and Tract Society" for their use of "Jehovah". It will then make greater sense to the reader of the nature of the Earthly Manmade Organization.

    John the baptist and Jesus went ahead of the "Organization" of their time. These two men were not products of the established Order. They were neither friends or family of the Leadership in Jerusalem. Same could be true today. Eric Wilson seems to be on that path farther ahead of JW.org.

    I just don't get it. What behaviour might result in one being accused of "running ahead"?

    SB, pointing out that a doctrine/policy of the WTS is not valid using the WTS explanations, and showing proof. Now the WTS tells members that even if the WTS might be wrong, that jws should wait until god corrects it (by divine intervention I suppose but not until many people have been injured by the WTS teaching or policy)

    Gosh. I'd completely misunderstood it. Thanks.
