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.

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 [...]

Yes, they will sanctify the Holy One

Watchtower review of the June 2020 article: Let Your Name Be Sanctified. Jehovah’s Witnesses have been the most controversial sect of Christianity since J.F. Rutherford adopted the name of “Jehovah’s Witnesses.” Even before that, the Bible Students promoted God’s name and rejected the well-worn lie that Jesus is God. Back before the Watchtower produced the New World Translation the American Standard Bible, which was published around [...]
