    I would like to find out what different Jehovah's Witnesses have to say about the all-encompassing claims of different Watchtower publications. Personally, I think the fundamental claims of those publications is seriously in error.

    Actually that is interesting. I noticed in the Revelation Grand Climax book -- in the forward it says "This publication DOES NOT claim to be inspired/infalible ---- etc" the WTBTS has been more careful over the last few years and moderated its tone on claims about authority/being inspired etc -- it stated only the bible is inspired of God

    And then they say that only the ORIGINAL Bible is inspired and they lost their copy. spin spin spin spin spin

    Stillsnejwelder... whatever lip service the Society pays to the the primacy of the Bible, it's clear that it that its printed materials -- boundbooks and CDs etc. are increasingly invoked as sources of authority/reference, excerpts often being quoted verbatim even in material purported to be directed at the public, a practice which was once discouraged. Nowadays it seems a JW speaker is as likely --maybe even more likely-- to cite a WT bound volume in proof of his point as a Bible passage.
