    they would use their BILLIONS$$$$$$$$$$ to MAKE SURE thateveryone got the "truth". They won't even allow you to quote from the New World Translation Bible!

    Minimus, that goes to show you that even they recognize that their verion of the Scriptures are nothing but fiction. A New York Times Bestseller.

    Good point.

    Fact is, they're not really interested in spreading "the good news", but only in giving themselves the impression they do. Do they really think they're fooling God?

    A good example is getting rid of magazine subscriptions because the postage is too expensive. Does anyone really think that magazine delivery by local JWs is reliable? When I lived in Switzerland some years ago, delivery was spotty at best.

    correct me if i'm wrong.. but didnt the wtbs BLAST the history of the catholic church for limiting access to the scriptures? i 'm beginning to think the wtbs is the NEW catholic church. their restrictions are archaic.

    how soon till the " inquisitions" begin? oh wait. they HAVE. many many lives are destroyed by them by their actions. even if it isnt at the end of a sword.

    Exactly. Everyone knows the preahing work in its present form is largely a waste of time and resources. Why not buy a few seconds of prime-time TV advertising? This would get the message to millions of people not otherwise available. Why not publish the literature online?

    From my experience, standing on a corner holding up a magazine and waiting for people to come to you, looking like a dumbass, didn't do anything but give me TIME to put down on my service report. They really don't give a flying fart for results, they just like seeing lots 'o hour on those damn little pieces of paper. Anything to keep up the illusions.

    The JWs merely have a reputation as door bangers---not people savers. "House-to-house and door-to-door" is what Witnesses do. The Society is content to give the IMAGE that they are "preachers and teachers". You can't preach and teach at not-at-homes!

    They might want to put jesus name on the cover of the magazine regularly , instead of mentioning him in small print on the back of the cover .

    who's he?

    Rebwer!!!! (That's "praire gibberish" from Blazzing Saddles)
