    "The American Journal of Psychiatry states: "The psychological impact on persons on the receiving end of lies can be devastating. Major life decisions may be based on false information believed to be correct. Lies may also have adverse effects on liars themselves." How much better to tell the truth, as the Bible wisely counsels!" God's Word, Ch 12. v 14, 1989

    Also, we must not only publish books about or in explanation of the Bible; we must also help the Bible readers to understand these Bible-explaining books, (The Watchtower Nov. 15, 1961 p.694)

    This can't be true ... you must be joking! Where are all those books explaining the books, explaining the books ...
    No wonder i couldn't understand that weird stuff.

    It is wise to avoid making purchases from or employing the services of individuals or businesses known to be illegal in their operation. (Pay Attention, p.137)

    *** w50 8/15 260 Name and Purpose of The Watchtower ***
    The Watchtower stands alone in its field, its value unmeasurable in money.

    *** w53 9/1 526 Appreciating The Watchtower ***

    How do you feel about The Watchtower? Like the reader who wrote as follows? "The Watchtower is the most delicious morsel we’ve ever tasted. Each one gets tastier (if possible). No humdrum about our menu! It’s so good we can hardly digest one until we look forward to another. Have you ever gone into an exclusive candy kitchen and wondered how to choose what you want when you saw so many, many lovely kinds? I feel that way spiritually about The Watchtower. There is so much to study that I hardly know where to begin. Then when I begin, I can’t quit until I have to go and tell someone else about it, or discuss it with them. And so it goes. Never a dull moment!"

    *** The Finished Mystery 141 (not yet on CD-ROM) ***

    "With the world in the next Age, the Lord's power will be represented through the Great Company class, under the Bride. They will be a great police force, looking out for the whole people. They will have enough to do; for God has guaranteed that ‘nothing shall hurt or offend in all His holy Mountain'— Kingdom (Isa. 11:9). That will mean a careful supervision. Yes, indeed! How will they hinder wrong-doing? If a person were about to speak blasphemy or slander, the tongue might be instantly paralyzed. Very easy! A policeman right on the spot!— not waiting until the offender had done the mischief and then punishing him, but fixing him so that he will not get the chance to do it, and punishing him for trying to do so."—Question Meeting.

    *** w52 2/1 95 Questions from Readers ***Really, our colored brothers have great cause for rejoicing. Their race is meek and teachable, and from it comes a high percentage of the theocratic increase.

    *** w55 7/15 436 War from Heaven Brings Peace to Earth ***

    Men can spray a field with chemicals that kill weeds but spare crops; too bad they cannot spray cities with bombs that blow the bad to bits but leave the innocent intact.

    *** w61 5/15 320 Questions from Readers ***If one desires to have music at a wedding, it would seem to be more fitting to have Kingdom songs at a theocratic wedding than one of the popular wedding marches, which have pagan or mythological backgrounds. However, Kingdom music should not be used for dancing.

    Oh my, so many, so many!

    'Following Bible principles, we will avoid trying to live - or demand others to live - by an extensive and rigid set of dos and don'ts that go beyond the teachings of the Bible.' The Watchtower, 4-15-02, pg 22, pp 15

    Some of these really made my jaw drop!

    Sheesh, and I thought the WTS ramblings NOW were bad, how could anyone back then have swallowed this nonsense?!

    Because the practice is one "contrary to nature," the masturbator pays a mental penalty. The habitual practice cripples his social and emotional development, hinders his attaining a healthful outlook and attitude toward the other sex and toward people in general. It can 'turn the person inward' upon himself, making him introverted. Or it can, and frequently does, lead into homosexuality, in which the person, not satisfied with his lonely sexual activity, seeks a partner for mutual sex play.
