I took a Watchtower Rag !
I accepted a WT mag/rag from a Bro I have known for decades just to be polite. I asked him if he would like my comments on it sometime, he said he would listen, (yea maybe he will hear, but not really listen and absorb what I have to say.)
The interesting thing is, they are getting better, the Borg,there was only one "half quote" where they select what they want from a source, and ignore the rest of what the source says.
And only one Blatant Lie.
It was the mag about the 4 Horsemen, and a supplementary article makes the false claim that " archaeology repeatedly supports the Bible's historical accuracy".
This is typical JW Borg propaganda speak. O.K they can point to many examples where they can find such support, but it only needs ONE example that does not support the Bible's so called accuracy and it means the Bible is not the word of God. He cannot tell a lie remember.
How many examples can you think of ?
No evidence for the Exodus, Camels were not domesticated in Patriarchal times, many of the places mentioned in Genesis were simply uninhabited in the times Genesis claims them as Cities etc etc. I could go on, but just one of those is sufficient. And the JW Org knows all this.
In terms of evidence of what they preach and teach is all nonsense, too many to mention. The crap that they show and tell is one aspect of it. How they have people make important life decisions based on their crap is what I find really cruel.
To be a Jehovah's Witness is to live a life in denial of reality. Forget reason or evidence, the Watchtower deliberately forgets them!
Ignore clear thinking, despise education and achievement because as a JW you can luxuriate in that species of happiness which comes from being servile to the cult masters in the way that dogs feel rewarded for obedience.
Good pick-up on that blatant lie about archaeology @Phizzy
How brilliant to just completely ignore the mountains of archaeological evidence that died not support the Bible!
I also love the quote about how there are 50 people mentioned in the Bible that have been confirmed to exist by archaeology - shame it is none of the main important characters like Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus etc etc
How about the claim that the sun stood still in Joshua's day ? The sun always stands still in relation to the earth and always has.
The earth revolves around the sun and not the reverse,giving the impression the sun moves across the sky when in fact its the earth turning that gives this impression.
The scripture should have said the sun appeared to stand still
Whatever way you look at it completely un scientific To stop the earth rotating to give the impression of the sun standing still would have destroyed all life on earth as we know it.
They'll probably want to Bluetooth the mag to public in future, then I'll have to start buying toilet paper.
