WBTS False Prophecies - and the Lying cover-ups! - 28

In the aftermath of the 1975 disastrous false prophecy the WBTS reacted predictably in view of their previous heretical statements and doctrines by reminding their followers that the Word of God is not important - and not to trust 'independent thinking'!

The Watchtower, December 1, 1981, p27:  As this next page shows, the WBTS began to wriggle and squirm when thousands continued to leave the 'organisation'!

The previous page is blown up in this portion (above) from The Watchtower, December 1, 1981, and reveals the devious nature of the WBTS! That they can try and argue that:

'At times explanations given by  Jehovah's visible organization have shown adjustments,
seemingly to previous points of view. But this has not actually been the case. This might be compared to what is known in navigational circles as "tacking." By maneuvering the sails the sailors can cause a ship to go from right to left, back and forth, but all the time making progress toward their destination in spite of contrary winds.'

And then, as usual, they remind the deceived that,
despite all of our errors over the last CENTURY:

'Jehovah God has also provided his visible organization, his "faithful and discreet slave," made up of spirit-anointed ones, to help Christians in all nations to understand and apply properly the Bible in their lives.
Unless we are in touch with this channel of communication that God is using, we will not progress along the road to life, no matter how much Bible reading we do. - Compare Acts 8:30-40'

So, despite the unending false prophesies by the WBTS, they warn you not to waste your time reading the Bible on your own because it won't do you any good.

Again, it makes you wonder how those poor, inadequate Christians survived for 2,000 years without the WBTS being there to guide them in their Bible studies!

The Watchtower, February 15, 1979, p20 (see left):

"In a world where people are tossed about by confusing winds of religious doctrine, Jehovah's people need to be stable, full-grown Christians.  (Eph. 4:13, 14) Their position must be steadfast, not shifting quickly because of independent thinking or emotional pressures. (Col. 1:23; 2:6, 7)"

The Watchtower, October 1, 1982, p26-27 (above) - despite their unrelenting failure at prophesying the WBTS continue to insist a "prophet to the nations" is needed and, of course, they are the 'mere remnant of this "prophet" class yet on earth'!

The Watchtower, January 15, 1983, p27 (above) - another warning to Jehovah's Witnesses about daring to display 'independent thinking':

'Yet there are some who point out that the organization has had to make adjustments before, and
so they argue: "This shows that we have to make up our own mind on what to believe." This is independent thinking. Why is it so dangerous? ... Such thinking is an evidence of pride. And the Bible says: "Pride is before a crash, and a haughty spirit before stumbling." (Proverbs 16:18) If we get to thinking that we know better than the organization, we should ask ourselves: "Where did we learn Bible truth in the first place? Would we know the way of the truth if it had not been for guidance from the organization? Really, can we get along without the direction of God's organization?" No, we cannot! - Compare Acts 15:2, 28, 29; 16:4, 5.'

Just like Papal Rome the WBTS threaten their followers with the consequences of '
independent thinking' and remind them that they cannot 'get along without the direction of God's organization'!

The WBTS repeated these warnings every now and then - probably in response to the loss of more members as Jehovah's Witnesses discovered the truth about the false prophecies and heretical doctrines - and so, six years later, we read in
The Watchtower, September 15, 1989, p23 (see below):

"In the world, there is a tendency to reject leadership. As one lecturer said: 'The rising education level has improved the talent pool such that followers have become so critical that they are almost impossible to lead.' But a spirit of independent thinking does not prevail in God's organization, and we have sound reasons for confidence in the men taking the lead among us."

Do Jehovah's Witnesses really have 'sound reasons for confidence in the men taking the lead ... '?

Anyone reading all the evidence that exposes the WBTS for the 'savage wolves' (Acts 20:29) that they are will know that nobody on earth should ever have '
confidence in the men' of Brooklyn.

In another 1983 Watchtower the WBTS remind its followers what they will miss out on if they do not toe the line:

The Watchtower, February 15, 1983, p12 reminds Jehovah's Witnesses of the requirements that God demands of those who hope to 'reside forever upon His Paradise earth':

'
A third requirement is that we be associated with God's channel, his organization ... Jehovah is using only one organization today to accomplish his will. To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it.'

Again, the fear of leaving the 'one organisation' that can bring 'everlasting life in the earthly Paradise' helps ensure that most Jehovah's Witnesses will not dare to question this scheming, manipulative 'discreet slave'!

As always, it is impossible to find a single Biblical verse to support the idea that it is necessary to belong to 'one organisation' (that the WBTS claims to be) in order to enjoy everlasting life in the kingdom of God.  And eternal life will certainly not be enjoyed in the fictional 'earthly Paradise' of the WBTS!

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