The sheep and the goats and the brothers of Christ

I recently watched Kenneth Cook’s revised view on the judgment of the sheep and the goats. It has changed four times only to revert back to  Russell’s teaching. Would you give your interpretation as to when the judgment begins? (Video is part of the Annual Meeting program) It has been a quarter of a century since the Watchtower last revised their understanding of the parable, [...]

How dare you crush my people!

The Watchtower carries a study article entitled: Will You Continue to Be Readjusted? The article is based upon what Paul wrote to the Corinthians, exhorting them to continue to be readjusted. And everyone, including the Governing Body, needs to be “readjusted.” Then we get to paragraph 15… But how do we react when God’s organization makes a change that affects other aspects of our life? For [...]

To obey is better than sacrifice

The November, 2020, Watchtower urges JW’s to accept counsel and be readjusted. That’s fine —except the counsel they give is steeped in hypocrisy. Paragraph 14 claims that the Governing Body relies on God’s holy spirit. That may have been true in the past. But why even mention it? Shouldn’t we all rely on God’s spirit when making decisions, especially when our decisions may impact others [...]

The blackest darkness stands reserved forever for them

The post is a brief review of the study article appearing in the July, 2020 Watchtower The apostle Peter exhorted Christians to stay focused on God’s word as if it were the only light shining in a dark place. He wrote that in the context of discussing the Transfiguration of Jesus, of which he was an eyewitness. He reminds us that “it was not by [...]

I Myself Will Search for My Sheep

This post is a review of this Watchtower article. Paragraph two states: Jehovah takes note when even one of his children stops associating with the Christian congregation and engaging in the preaching work. Think, then, of how pained he must be to see thousands of his servants become inactive each year. The Governing Body is acutely aware of the slow exodus of “thousands” of Jehovah’s Witnesses. [...]

Let Your Name Be Sanctified

The Watchtower study article entitled Let Your Name Be Sanctified gives a brief overview of how Jehovah was slandered and how He has and will sanctify His name. Actually, what is most telling in the Watchtower’s coverage of the topic is what they omit. While it is true that Satan uses evolution and false religion to mislead the world and misrepresent God, they do not [...]

The King of the North Will Come All the Way to His End

Part three of the second study article I realize it may be discouraging for Jehovah’s Witnesses to consider the information presented on this site. It is hard for many to comprehend or accept that the Governing Body could be so far off the mark. The Watchtower is always tinkering and making adjustments, like these two articles on the topic of the king of the north, [...]

The King of the North Will Do as He Pleases

This is part three of the review of the second study article on the king of the north  Builders know that having a proper foundation is essential in any sort of construction project. If the foundation is faulty the structure will not last. Jesus used this concept in an illustration to conclude his Sermon on the Mount, saying: “Therefore, everyone who hears these sayings of [...]

Who is the King of the North Today? (part 1)

A continuation of the review of the Watchtower articles on the topic of the king of the north. Paragraph 1 states: WE HAVE more evidence than ever before that we are living at the end of the last days of this system of things. Soon, Jehovah and Jesus Christ will destroy all governments that oppose the Kingdom. Before that event occurs, the king of the [...]

Watchtower Review – King of the North

This week and next Jehovah’s Witnesses will be considering articles on the kings of the north and south via Zoom. Bible prophecy is something the Watchtower just can’t seem to get right. After 140 years of Bible research, they still do not understand the prophecy of Daniel as it relates to our time. The reason for their unenlightened condition is simple. The book of Daniel [...]
