THIS SITE IS STILL BEING DEVELOPED AND WILL UNDERGO CONTINUAL UPDATING
IT IS NOT SPONSORED BY THE WATCH TOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY
Their efforts appear to put the teachings and the writings of JWs under the microscope to reveal a lot of inconsistencies. Unfortunately, they nearly always fail to give their readers the complete picture, just enough to try to show their point. I have no intention of trying to convince opposes of JWs to change their minds. The purpose of this site is to give an answer to some of the criticism that has been leveled at Jehovah's Witnesses and at the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. In particular to what is said about JWs being unduly influenced by Mind Control techniques.
It is often asserted that by producing their own Bible that JWs are controlled as to which Bible is best.
The claim is made that JWs MUST believe every word that is printed in the WTBTS publications
It is claimed that JWs put the WTBTS as being equal to God
THE NEW WORLD TRANSLATION
This group of essays will look at some of the key texts and words that are claimed to support the idea of Mind control. It will also look at some of the main texts that are complained about. Hopefully, as these pages develop, you will see that the NWT is different and not wrong. YOU, the reader, will be able to make a better, informed, decision as to if the NWT can be relied on. Hopefully you will also see that a lot of the information portrayed on the net about JWs is misleading and in some cases dishonest.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not schooled in Biblical Greek, or Hebrew. When I start to talk about language use, the material that I use is derived from various Text Books. My use of these languages is not designed to be confrontational to scholars, but used from the point of view of one lay person to another.
DISCUSSIONS ON “ORGANISATION”
It is claimed that we put all our faith in an organisation run by imperfect men, and that this organisation is responsible for our salvation This group of essays will look at the idea "Has Jehovah ever used an Earthly Organisation and would he use one today". This essay gives a scriptural discussion, and examples to demonstrate that, to make mistakes, misunderstand Scriptures, and for personalities to get in the way, does not in itself disqualify one (or an organisation) from being used by our creator.
DISCUSSIONS ON “PROPHECY”
This essay looks at what was really said in regard to different dates (1874, 1914, 1925, 1975) and if they were "prophecy" or not. I also look at the April 1 1972 Watchtower article that is claimed by some to show that the organisation is a "prophet".
All essays will probably undergo some form of change as I get the time to learn more and have the time to post here.
