    Babylon the Great is in the back of the closet next to the box with the the Creative Days = 7,000 years each.

    They are both collecting dust.

    Let it clearly be understood the WTS and its leading men created its own religoius following (JWS) by decisive lying and corruption.

    An analogy of people seeing a bed of roses and walking over to it to only find they've stepped into a pool of quicksand and they are going down struggling.

    Their message is a cutsey make your family life better. And one day god promises you'll have your own panda and hillside chalet. No Armageddon is imminent and you need to get out of your false religion now!

    This particular religoius cult has built itself structural mechanisms to allure people to it as well to sustain them once they've placed themselves within it.

    A solemn vow of loyalty to the organization and its leaders during baptism..

    Coercion, exploitation manipulation, lies, ignorance and corruption are all there in the Watchtower Corporation.

    Thats freedom of religion folks , take it or leave it.

    I think when 250 000 000 Muslims Russian and Greek Orthodox realize that they are The Empire, Wt fears heads are going to roll. but

    wt/gb should welcome it, because it is a perquisite to rule with Christ, Rev 20, nor roll no rule.

    How about Zec.8:23 ten men will take hold of the skirt of a Jew for we have heard that god is with you people .

    And applied it to themselves , do they still use that one anymore ?

    SPEAKING of the time in which we are living, Jehovah foretold: “In those days ten men out of all the languages of the nations will take hold, yes, they will take firm hold of the robe of a Jew, saying: ‘We want to go with you, for we have heard that God is with you people.’” (Zech. 8:23) Like the figurative ten men, those who have an earthly hope have taken “firm hold of the robe of a Jew.” They are proud to associate with the spirit-anointed “Israel of God,” knowing that Jehovah is blessing his anointed ones.​—Gal. 6:16.

    If it is not possible to know with certainty the names of all spiritual Israelites on earth today, how can members of the other sheep “go with” them? Notice what the prophecy in Zechariah states concerning the figurative ten men. These ones would “take firm hold of the robe of a Jew, saying: ‘We want to go with you, for we have heard that God is with you people.’” Although only one Jew is mentioned here, in both instances the pronoun “you” refers to more than one person. This spiritual Jew must, then, be a composite person, not just one individual! So it is not necessary to identify every spiritual Jew and then go with him or her. Rather, we need to identify these ones as a group and then support them as such. In no way do the Scriptures encourage us to follow an individual. Jesus is our Leader.​—Matt. 23:10.

    ... ten men out of all the languages of the nations will take hold, yes, they will take firm hold of the robe of a Jew ...

    smiddy, blondie ...

    I think this scripture is not promoted as it once was. As I understand it, some incorrectly understood it as grabbing a guy in drag or cross-dressing or something.

    In any case, it is one of the teachings "in the closet" if that is a good term.
