It seems that the Watchtower has not learnt any lessons regarding their involvement in the United Nations. Perhaps they think the outcry that a few witnesses made a couple of years ago has died down. They have been silent about the United Nations for about 3 years – until they published an article in the Sep 15 th Watchtower, "Walk by Faith, Not by Sight!"
Under the subheading, Keeping the End in Sight, paragraph 12 briefly talks about the destruction of
Paragraph 13 reads as follows:
Something similar is about to take place in our day. Elements within the United Nations will be involved in the execution of divine judgement. Just as the Roman armies of the first century were designed to maintain the Pax Romana (Roman Peace), the United Nations of today is intended to be a peacekeeping instrument. Although the Roman armies tried to ensure relative safety throughout the then known world, they became the desolater of . Likewise today, Bible prophecy indicates that militarized powers within the United Nations will see religion as a disturbing element and will act to destroy modern-day – Christendom – as well as the rest of the Great. Yes, the entire world empire of false religion stands on the brink of destruction.
Now this is a very interesting paragraph. They stopped short of their usual persecution complex, whereby they say the UN will turn on Jehovah’s Witnesses and then comes Armaggedon. They fail to notice statements made by Tony Blair, that not all Muslims are bad, and that only a few are extremists. Even Bush notes that a few are bent on destroying democratic freedoms, and he is an advocate of faith based funding. Bush is a “professed Christian” himself; can you really imagine him nodding his head up and down and saying, “Yes, let’s destroy the religion that I believe in.” I mean, if any religion does go, it is bound to be Islam as that’s where most of the problems of the world are stemming from.
Continuing with Paragraph 14…
The desolation of false religion will mark the beginning of the great tribulation. In the final part of the tribulation, the remaining elements of this wicked system of things will be destroyed. Walking by faith keeps us alert to the fulfilment of Bible prophecy. We are not duped into thinking that any man-made agency like the United Nations is God’s means of bringing true peace and security. So, then, should not our way of life demonstrate our conviction that “the great day of Jehovah is near?”
What hypocritical liars! They maintain an active NGO appointment with the harlot they have been denouncing for years, getting ordinary witnesses to spread UN propaganda, agreeing to the principles of the charter of the UN, and then tell us that we should not be duped? Who are they kidding? They have been duped for 10 years during their active NGO membership. Utter fools those men in are. What do they take us for? Sheep?
