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'.
