WBTS False Prophecies - and the Lying Cover-ups! - 25

On this page quotes from the WBTS between 1963 and 1974 reveal how they encouraged Jehovah's Witnesses not to fear to examine their own religion saying 'it is a public service instead of a religious persecution and it has to do with the eternal life' while warning that 'there have been those in times past who predicted an "end to the world," even announcing a specific date … They were guilty of false prophesying' so you should not 'cling to organisations that teach falsehood ... and, really, would you want to be even associated with a religion that had not been honest with you?'!


In The Truth That Leads To Eternal Life, 1968, p13 the WBTS encouraged Jehovah's Witnesses not to fear to examine their own religion.

Of course they never meant any Jehovah's Witness to seriously examine the history of the WBTS - as the evidence of those who left the WBTS reveals (see end of these pages)!

The Watchtower, November 15, 1963, p688 advises Jehovah's Witnesses that:

'
It is not a form of religious persecution for anyone to say and to show that another religion is false. It is not religious persecution for an informed person to expose publicly a certain religion as being false, thus allowing persons to see the difference between false religion and true religion. But in order to make the exposure and show the wrong religions to be false, the true worshiper will have to use an authoritative means of judgment, a rule of measurement that cannot be proved faulty. To make a public exposure of false religion is certainly of more value than exposing a news report as being untrue; it is a public service instead of a religious persecution and it has to do with the eternal life and happiness of the public. Still it leaves the public free to choose'.

Since the WBTS have clearly claimed that their books and magazines are 'authoritative' and, indeed, '
practically the Bible', they clearly believe that a Jehovah's Witness reading this will continue to use only their material as 'a rule of measurement'.

The evidence shows that most Jehovah's Witnesses will never reveal their lack of faith by reading past material of the WBTS, or even checking out their Biblical interpretations with genuine authoritative material, because of the fear instilled into them by the manipulative writings of the Society.

Later we will give clear and obvious examples of the many ways the WBTS '
wrest Scripture' as 2 Peter 3:16-17 reveals:

'As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness'.

The Awake!, October 8, 1968, p23, states clearly:

'Still some persons may say: "How can you be sure? Maybe it is later than many people think. But maybe it is not as late as some persons claim.
People have been mistaken about these prophecies before."'

The WBTS admit that 'people have been mistaken about these prophecies before' - so they have admitted what statements of this nature are!  But now they claim that this is the difference:  'True, there have been those in times past who predicted an "end to the world," even announcing a specific date. Some have gathered groups of people with them and fled to the hills or withdrawn into their houses waiting for the end. Yet, nothing happened. The "end" did not come. They were guilty of false prophesying.  Why? What was missing?  Missing was the full measure of evidence required in fulfillment of Bible prophecy.  Missing from such people were God's truths and the evidence that he was guiding and using them.  But what about today? Today we have the evidence required, all of it. And it is overwhelming!  All the many, many parts of the great sign of the "last days" are here, together with verifying Bible chronology.'

It is impossible for the WBTS to deny that they have been guilty of every aspect of false prophesying - all of which they accused others of perpetrating!

They are happy to point out that 'Some have gathered groups of people with them and fled to the hills or withdrawn into their houses waiting for the end'.

The Adventists who C.T. Russell had studied with and whose false teachings he embraced - and then twisted into even more horrendous error - were among those who belonged to the '
Some' alluded to by the WBTS!

But you can read about the Jehovah's Witnesses who sold their houses, businesses, postponed university study or having a family ALL because they were deceived into believing the false prophecies of the WBTS just 40 years ago! Or you can watch the DVD! 

Is This Life All There Is?, 1974, p46 advises Jehovah's Witnesses not to 'cling to organisations that teach falsehood ... and, really, would you want to be even associated with a religion that had not been honest with you?'

Have they admitted their many false prophecies to you?

Of course they have also never shown you a list of the contradictions in their doctrines and their obvious guesses about many other aspects of the Scriptures either!

If you read the testimonies at the end of these pages you will find out how the WBTS never admit to being wrong but simply slander and dis-fellowship those who raise questions about these matters.

Know the reality of eternity in heaven by believing on Jesus Christ as your Lord & Saviour!
