Russell said the same thing with out his books you would go back to Christian think back into darkness. Now no ones reading his old out dated books. Yet the GB is still using his propaganda techniques to keep their followers inslaved.
July Broadcast - Bible Teach book and Keep Yourselves In Gods Love book
When I was at Bethel, Br. Knorr explained the reason for the LAMP book (to be studied with prospective Witnesses).
He said that people were becoming JWs, coming in the front door, so to speak, but leaving through the back door. Apparently, having a better and more complete understanding of the Bible would ensure one's remaining in the faith.
Has it worked?
ToMo is 100% correct.
The Bible Teach book is all carrot - pandas and paradise.
God's Love book is all stick - obey the Borg or die.
People that only want paradise, but who do not want to sacrifice their entire life to an unappreciative corporation, will indeed end up leaving.
Search the Bible Teach book for the following:
- faithful and discreet slave (or any variation)
- Governing Body
- disfellowship (ed) (ing)
