    These are real "gems". Its amazing to see them in black and white, and blatantly showing the utter hypocrisy of this organization.

    What a bunch of clowns, really. A complete bunch of nonsense, and a joke. If it wasnt that this organizations policies, literally split up families, mentally trap humans, and hurt so many lives, it would be comical almost.

    These are great, please post more guys.

    You're welcome Blue.

    Here the WTS teaches Christians how to love ones enemies.

    “More than that, we want to HATE those who willfully show themselves haters of Jehovah, haters of what is good. …We hate them, not in the sense of wanting to do them harm or wishing them harm but in the sense of avoiding them as we would poison or a poisonous snake, for they can poison us spiritually.”—The Watchtower, June 15, 1980, p. 8

    “Godly HATE is a powerful protection against wrongdoing… Are we doing that? …Apostates are included among those who show their hatred of Jehovah by revolting against him. Apostasy is, in reality, a rebellion against Jehovah. …Others claim to believe the Bible, but they reject Jehovah’s organization and actively try to hinder its work. …a Christian must hate (in the Biblical sense of the word) those who have inseparably attached themselves to the badness.”—The Watchtower, October 1, 1993, p. 19

    "Is strict avoidance really necessary? Yes... Loyal Christian family members do not look for excuses to have dealings with a disfellowshipped relative not living at home.” Keep Yourself in God's Love (2008) p.207

    “This brings a test upon a Christian when a marriage mate, a child, a parent, or another close relative is disfellowshipped or has disassociated himself from the congregation… the principles of which apply equally to those who are disfellowshipped and to those who disassociate themselves… Hence, we also avoid social fellowship with an expelled person. This would rule out joining him in a picnic, party, or trip to the shops or theatre or sitting down to a meal with him either in the home or at a restaurant. …if the disfellowshipped or disassociated one is a relative living outside the immediate family circle and home… It might be possible to have almost no contact at all with the relative.”—Our Kingdom Ministry, August 2002, pp. 3-4

    "Satans organization claims to be Gods organization, and persecutes those who are actually members of Gods organization. Satans organization sails under the high-sounding name of "Christendom".

    Step 1. Open Bible.

    Step 2. Search for the word "organization". Your search will be in vain.

    Step 3. Conclude any references to God's organization and Satan's organization is made up and has no basis in Scripture.

    Know what I find really ironic?

    The sheer fucking glee WT loyalists used to display when the RCC kept getting slammed for this problem.

    They had no clue just how much glass had gone into the construction of their own house.

    Useful quotes here to redirect against WT cockies

    I remember a guy giving a Talk at what we called a Circuit Assembly in those days, he said "Remember, when you point the finger, there are three fingers pointing back at you !".

    OH how that applies to the J.W org !!

  • Smiles

    Did you remember any scriptures from that circuit assembly talk, or just the borrowed worldly wisdom?

    (JW lectures are more talk than actual bible useage)

    I can remember how we would make excuses for the WTS and GB whenever someone pointed out that the stuff we were reading and supporting sounded a lot like the same things the WTS was criticizing other religions for.

    "Yes, there may be pedophiles among us. But WE report the crime immediately and we NEVER give those men privileges in the congregation! Totally different from Christendom!!!!"

    Then you get away from the organization and you learn that they are just as dirty as anyone else, but they lied to you without a hint of remorse. Very bad taste in the mouth when you find that out.
