** It *never* fails to amaze me how many JWs don't know about Jesus not being their Mediator and will swear up and down that he is - then immediately accept the WT without even blinking when I show them in the WT literature. This is my favourite thing to ask JWs about because it's so outrageous and so obviously untrue.
I remember when that WT came out and we studied it. I can't tell you how let down and disappointed I was. It was very disturbing to me that I had believed that Jesus had died and was buried with *all* our sins, all of mankind and that all we need do was to accept him as our Savior and mediator to "benefit" from his sacrifice.
Finding out that Jesus placed one group of people before another somehow didn't square up with everything I had learned about him.....but yet, I TRUSTED the WTS to dispense only TRUTH! How terribly mistaken I was.
