Jehovah's Witnesses including its leaders are in the business of lying

    ......endeavored to create an image of the organization which they are a identifying part of.

    When you think about this religious organization and most its social ideological expressions are expressed through lying.

    Its doctrines are lies and not supported by the bible.

    The leaders intentionally twisted doctrines to enhance the proliferation of the literature the WTS published, which were a false theology through their interpretation of the bible.

    The proclamation that JWS are generally good wholesome living honest people.

    There is constant endeavor by the people involved to hold up a pretentious veil of honest righteousness identifying the organization and its adherent followers.

    Very true, I wish everyone knew this.

  • Finkelstein

    Problem is people who seek to know god through the JWS mainly end up knowing mostly the men who run the WTS their rules and doctrinal propagations.

    The bible tells a different story and leaves a different message.


    Great topic!

    Agree 100% w/LTPF. Wish everyone knew this.

    My brother told me "We call it 'lying for the Truth' " I replied "that tells folks all they need to know"

    Now it's called 'theocratic warfare' Totally unbiblical

    I don't know why the masses don't overturn the money changing tables in the temple, because this Org engages in theocratic warfare against it's own people!

    What a &%$king disgrace of an organization!

    And doesn`t their own Bible clearly state, Prov.6 Vs 16 there are six things that Jehovah does hate ...Vs 19 a false witness that launches forth lies ....?

    Also Prov.14 Vs 5 A faithful witness is one that will not lie ,but a false witness launches forth mere lies. ?

    And of course John 8 :44 You are from your father the Devil ....because he is a liar and the father of the lie. ?

    " By their fruits you will know them "

    What more can I say

    One of their biggest and most dangerous lies.

    The WT taught that a transfusion was just like 'eating blood'

    Here is how they made their case:

    “It is of no consequence that the blood is taken into the body through the veins instead of the mouth. Nor does the claim by some that it is not the same as intravenous feeding carry weight. The fact is that it nourishes or sustains the life of the body. In harmony with this is a statement in the book Hemorrhage and Transfusion, by George W. Crile, A.M., M.D., who quotes a letter from Denys, French physician and early researcher in the field of transfusions. It says: ‘In performing transfusion it is nothing else than nourishing by a shorter road than ordinary – that is to say, placing in the veins blood all made in place of taking food which only turns to blood after several changes.’” (The Watchtower, Sept. 15, 1961, p. 558)

    What the Society does not tell its readers, is that this doctor, Jean Baptiste Denys, lived in the 17th century! And (It turns out that Dr. Denys never said the words attributed to him by the Watchtower).

    WT you have compelled Tens of thousands to die because a transfusion was not acceptable based on a 17th century physician?

    * Aid to Bible Understanding Book, 1971 Edition, Pages 1060-1061 ***

    "Lying generally involves saying something false to a person who is entitled to know the truth and doing so with the intent to deceive or to injure him or another person"

    "While malicious lying is definitely condemned in the Bible, this does not mean that a person is under obligation to divulge truthful information to people who are not entitled to it."

    Try and show a jw the above then ask them who is the father of lies? the silence is nearly deafening until they remember to change the subject.

    Here was another thread from long time ago on the subject of jw being liars-

    Finkelstein - one thought.

    Its doctrines are lies and not supported by the bible.

    ALL christian religion is based on the bible supported just as well.
    The is so unspecific that anyone can make it say whatever they want it to say.

  • Crazyguy

    I thought as I was waking up that they were just miss guided or a bit delusional but your so right . There have been a few times that it has become clear to me in the last 5 years that they are out and out Liars

  • Finkelstein

    Whats important to realize is that the core doctrines created by the WTS going right back to the late 1800's were theologically false and not supported by the bible, such as the setting of dates ie. Christ's positioning in heaven , the GT to be followed by Armageddon.

    They were nevertheless advantageous toward the proliferation of published literature to the public.
