Monday, June 19 Pay attention to yourselves that your hearts never become weighed down . . . and suddenly that day be instantly upon you as a snare.—Luke 21:34, 35. Events on the world scene clearly indicate that Bible prophecy is now being fulfilled and that the end of this wicked system of things is imminent. Therefore, we should not assume that much time is needed for the state of [...]

Tuesday, January 5 Let your words always be gracious, . . . so that you will know how you should answer each person.—Col. 4:6. A number of years ago, a Christian sister was discussing the Bible with her unbelieving husband. During their discussion, her husband said that he believed in the Trinity. Discerning that he might not have realized what the Trinity teaching is all about, she tactfully asked, [...]
(Question #5) Since the Organization has received "new light" regarding the 1914 generation, and completely changed their view on this, does this mean that all the former Jehovah's witnesses who were disfellowshipped years ago for the same view the organization is now teaching will automatically be accepted into fellowship again? Were these Ex-Jw's in fact disfellowshipped for truth and knew things that the governing body did [...]
The following is a hypothetical conversation that one of Jehovah’s Witnesses might have with a person who is knowledgable of the Bible, as opposed to the typical householder. Let us imagine that a Witness named Cameron has returned to the home of a man named Robert. This rebuttal is based upon the November 2014 Watchtower edition for the public Cameron: It’s good to see you [...]
QUESTION: You have mentioned numerous times that Jehovah’s Witnesses are under “an operation of error” concerning the last days and that Jehovah has allowed this to happen to His people as a test. That sounds very plausible; however, where does that leave yourself and the many others that have not been fooled by this? If we aren't under this influence then does that mean we're not [...]
QUESTION: Robert, How can active Jehovah's Witnesses who read and agree with your conclusion on 1914, and all the other truths you bring to light, go and preach 1914, or how could you preach this to a new Bible study? It seems that active JW's would have great difficulty pretending to go along with direction from the Watchtower, if they believed in their heart that it [...]
QUESTION: If 1914 was not a pivotal date regarding the coming of the Kingdom (and I don't believe it was), then why would there be any "sealing" of the number of the holy ones as we were/are led to believe happened in or from 1935, this seeming to come about due to the fact that there was more than the 144,000 JW's at the time and [...]
Jehovah’s Witnesses have been taught and whole-heartedly believe that the sign of Christ’s parousia has been evident since 1914. In fact, according to the Watchtower 1914 is the most important date in all human history. But in spite of the belief that Jesus Christ has been invisibly present in some fashion for over a century now, Jehovah’s Witnesses are nonetheless, contradictorily exhorted to keep on the watch. [...]
Jehovah’s Witnesses frequently refer to themselves as being “in the truth.” That is because the faith itself is referred to as “the truth.” Actually, Jesus himself first used the expression, when he said concerning the Devil: “He did not stand fast in the truth.” So, according to Jesus Christ the Devil was once “in the truth,” just like Jehovah’s Witnesses claim to be. Being in the truth is not a static thing, then, [...]
The first edition of Jehovah Himself Has Become King (2005) considered some of the so-called minor prophets, which included Micah. It was apparent to me that the prophecy of Micah, although set in ancient times, actually contains judgments yet to be revealed at the second coming of Jesus Christ. Even in the most recent Third and final edition, though, I could not foresee or appreciate the [...]
