“Ninja” points out that the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society has indeed knowingly lied, under the direction of The Governing Body:
they have been lying….check the watchtower MAGAZINE from jan 1st 1989 ..page 12 paragraph 8 where they said….
“He was laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our 20th century.”
when you check the BOUND VOLUME it has changed to
“He was laying a foundation for a work that would be completed in our day.”
now if that wasn’t to hide facts or deceive it’s followers…..what is?
I have the original magazine as proof…yep a hard copy and can show it as proof….wriggle out of that watchtower
but of course it wasn’t a lie it was a terminological inexactitude….he he
I posted this to standfirm…..but he hasn’t put it up yet
First of all, isn’t it interesting that StandFirm has yet to publish “ninja’s” comment to his WTBTS apologist blog?
Helpfully, I’ll publish it here.
Ninja refers to this:
That’s the January 1 Watchtower of 1989, page 12, as published in the magazine version of the publication. However, later, when the bound volume version was printed (the bound volume is the hard bound annual compendium of the previous year’s Watchtower magazines), the above sentence was edited*.
This edit is also to be found by “honest hearted ones” when they check the Watch Tower CD Rom.
Could this be classed at open dishonesty on the part of The Governing Body, as published by the Watch Tower Society?
After all, they knew what they’d written in the loose magazine edition of the Watchtower. They knew that their prophecy had failed (yet again). They then purposefully altered what they’d said, meaning that today “honest hearted ones” who wish to ascertain whether The Governing Body does in fact accurately and truthfully speak for God have their pathway blocked by the duplicitous actions of these representatives of “the faithful and discreet slave” “class”.
- How can Jehovah’s Witnesses call their religious order, as led by The Governing Body, “the truth”, when the men whom they must obey wilfully edit history to cover over their false prophetic utterances?
- How can The Governing Body liken their leadership to that of Christ, who is “the truth”, when they frequently lead their followers into falsehoods, such as teaching that the door-t0-door syndication of Watch Tower publications will have been completed within the 20th century?
*I address this dishonesty, and others on the part of The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, here.
