Will you be marked for survival?

Back when I was an elder I used to speak from the Watchtower’s public talk outline entitled: Are You Marked for Survival? As I recall it delved into all the evils that are prevalent in Christendom, such as bloodguilt from all of the many wars and various other evils. Supposedly godly people who are grieved over the evils within Christendom are being marked for survival. Now, [...]

You will have to know that I am Jehovah

“And you will have to know that I, Jehovah, am striking you.” —Ezekiel 7:9 Chapter seven of the Pure Worship publication is entitled: “The Nations Will Have to Know that I am Jehovah.” The writers cite the many nations that surrounded Israel and the wars and atrocities that took place over the centuries. By the time Ezekiel came on the scene, it was time for God [...]

Jehovah fools the prophet

A consideration of the 14th chapter of Ezekiel The case has been made that Jehovah’s Witnesses are practicing a form of idolatry —the ubiquitous Organization being the idol. By the Watchtower’s own definition idolatry may involve giving undue praise or adoration to an organization. Here is what is stated in the very first paragraph of the Insight book on the topic of Idolatry: An idol is [...]

Those who fabricate their own prophecies

“Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, and say to those who fabricate their own prophecies, ‘Hear the word of Jehovah. This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: ‘Woe to the stupid prophets, who follow their own spirit, when they have seen nothing!’” --Ezekiel 13 As a general rule, everything the Watchtower teaches as regards doctrine is true. And everything the Watchtower teaches [...]

No more flattering divination

The Pure Worship publication is a real piece of work. And I do not mean that in a good way. It is full of omissions and contradictions and outright deception. It is torturous to read. But isn’t that typical of the Watchtower when it comes to interpreting prophecy? Ironically, though, the very prophetic book Bethel presumes to explain —Ezekiel —shines a light into the darkest corners [...]

25 men were bowing down to the sun

There at the entrance of the temple of Jehovah, between the porch and the altar, were about 25 men with their backs to the temple of Jehovah and their faces to the east; they were bowing down to the sun in the east.” The sun is the most powerful influence over the [...]

Women weeping over the god Tammuz

Shortly after the great flood reduced the earth’s population to eight souls, Satan set a scheme into motion that has had a far-reaching influence upon everyone who has lived up to the present. The Devil knew of God’s intention to produce a seed or offspring, who would crush the head of the serpent. After all, Jehovah addressed that so-called Edenic prophecy directly to the one who [...]

See the evil, detestable things they are doing

From the very beginning, the leading men of Israel were prone to idolatry. It was the brother of Moses, Aaron, who made a golden calf for the camp to worship while his brother was on the mountain receiving the Ten Commandments. Shortly after Israel settled in the promised land they began worshipping the baals. Over and over again God would chastise them. They would repent [...]

This symbol of jealousy in the entryway

"Then he stretched out what appeared to be a hand and took me by a tuft of hair of my head, and a spirit carried me between the earth and the heavens and brought me to Jerusalem by means of the visions from God, to the entrance of the inner gate that faces north, where the idolatrous symbol of jealousy that incites jealousy stood. And look! [...]
