    Hitchins Razor - "What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence."

    Which Bible verse/s conclusively prove the following claims?

    w16 November p. 30 par. 14 - Malachi 3:1-3 describes the time—from 1914 to early 1919—when the anointed “sons of Levi” would undergo a period of refinement.....In 1919, a “faithful and discreet slave” was appointed to provide spiritual food to the household of faith.

    w16 March p. 29 par. 2 - Then, in 1919, Jesus appointed “the faithful and discreet slave” over God’s cleansed people to give them spiritual “food at the proper time.”

    w15 3/15 pp. 21-22 par. 9 - In the time of the end, particularly from 1919 on, Christ’s faithful anointed slaves on earth have been doing business with the Master’s talents.

    ws chap. 8 p. 67 par. 5 - In 1919 the anointed disciples of the reigning King, Jesus Christ, did enter into an approved condition...

    w90 3/15 p. 14 par. 21 - In 1918, when Jesus Christ inspected those claiming to be his slaves, he found an international group of Christians publishing Bible truths...In 1919 it truly turned out to be as Christ had foretold....

    The WT theory seems to be that if you say it often enough, that's proof.

    Seems to work for them...


    To me, JWs always ask the wrong questions. Why would anyone promote to live their life by the Bible (which is a Catholic book) and at the same time claim that the Catholic Church is the whore of Babylon.

    “Not their book though, they got that one right.”

    Funny that never resonates w/JWs

    Their approach is not an uncommon one: select a bunch of isolated verses and apply an interpretation. It looks impressive at first glance, until people begin to read the contextual verses and find discrepancies. If you are the WTS, you warn them that they are slipping into apostate territory and that maybe they need to stop.

    They have a tapestry of verses.

    They dont really consider the verses in and around the verses they are referring to.

    Indeed: positive or convincing proof is surely needed to establish the simple fact that JW's are indeed the True Religion in accordance with the historical basis for the Early Church as described in the Acts of the Apostles. Note that such was in accordance with 'convincing or positive proofs' - Acts 1:3.

    Thus, modern-day Christians identified as Jehovah's Witnesses can testify or demonstrate such clear and demonstrable evidence as follows:

    Fulfillment of Bible prophecy

    Modern-day history prior to and subsequent to 1914 CE

    Bible chronology establishes 1914 CE.

    These three things form what the said scholar has termed an ' eschatological triennium' consisting of the key dates of 1914, 1918 and 1919 CE all based on careful exegesis and eisegesis of the Holy Scriptures.

    Why the Bible?


    Which bible?

    good question.

    how was the bible compiled?

    what criteria was used in the composition of the Bible?

    there were conditions that had to be met. Do you know what they were?

    do you know why Martin Luther removed books from the Bible? Or do you think the Catholics added books?
