    Yes Steel and was it just a coincidence that Jesus took upon his heavenly throne in 1914 right when the Watchtower Publishing house there abouts was getting started, ummmmm ?

    ...I cant help be dismayed that people today in this age of information are still believing in ancient mythology, words and activities expressed by forgiven ignorant humans, 2 to 3 thousand years ago.

    “The truth is that the greatest enemies to the doctrines of Jesus are those calling themselves the expositors of them, who have perverted them for the structure of a system of fancy absolutely incomprehensible, and without any foundation in his genuine words. And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors."

    They take all the verses of the Bible as literally inspired by God whereas the truth is that some of the verses may be inspired

  • Finkelstein

    Isn't all mythology inspired by the imagination of supernatural beings and the activity of those being in relation to human conscience awareness. ?

    Having had in the past long discussions with JW's, I have come to conclude that the "truth they are really missing" is that they do not care about Truth.

    Their Doctrine can change, and their morals, at the stroke of a pen by the Writing Department of JW Org, and they do not care or question.

    Show them 1001 falsehoods in their religion/theology, and they do not care or question.

    They are simply emotionally attached to the Org.

    Truth does not enter in to it.

    The Truth...

    ...about "The Truth".

    True Vidot, some are secretly and consciously beginning to wonder about what hasn't happen since 1914., those ones which can remember 1975 and the decades after.
