The Watchtower Book of scriptures and Tract Society routinely reminds Jehovah’s Observers, that they are the best instructed individuals on earth. As you read their productions, you will find that references to remaining nearby to the ‘unwavering and careful slave’ just as the Overseeing Body, are consistent. Surely, to isolate yourselves from this self broadcasted group of Authentic delivery people, isn’t just a wrongdoing, yet deserving of disfellowshipping (disregarding).
Jehovah’s Observers intensely guarantee that they need you to think about the Good book day by day. They will point to the sign on their distributing structures in Brooklyn, New York that peruses “Read God’s Statement the Sacred Book of scriptures Day by day” as verification that they are making a special effort to instruct individuals to consider God’s Pledge. You will discover numerous references inside their writing asserting that only they comprehend God’s motivation… furthermore, that they’ve been sent to impart it to whatever remains of humankind.
To talk with somebody that is faithful to the Watchtower Society, you would leave trusting they Need an individual to be exceptionally instructed on everything otherworldly; that they are studious and support the majority of their individuals to peruse, just as refine their open talking abilities. As of late, they got rid of their assembly book examine night; making a night called ‘family think about night.’ in actuality, the reason was far unique in relation to that, yet that is a subject for another article.
Nonetheless, for those of us that have spent most of our lives as one of Jehovah’s Observers, you before long discover that ‘consolation’ to consider has parameters that the Watchtower Society diagrams. That they just empower particular kinds of study, just as the necessity to think about just writing created by the association. Truth be told, Jehovah’s Observers are illegal to peruse writing by anybody or any gathering that holds the Watchtower Society in a basic light. Truth be told, to peruse or concentrate such writing would bring about being named an ‘apostate’… also, there is nothing more terrible to a Jehovah’s Observer. To be blamed for abandonment among Jehovah’s Observers is a capital punishment. For a long time, the association asserted that to try and investigate something without their heading may result in the ‘indefensible sin.’
The Watchtower Society accepts and straightforwardly instructs that only they comprehend the Good book; thusly, there is no motivation to ever peruse other writing! There is so much accentuation put on their advantaged transporters of Book of scriptures understanding, that notwithstanding concentrating the Holy book ‘to an extreme’ or ‘without them’ is very disapproved of.
Think about a portion of their intense cases… also, these are nevertheless an inspecting of the message reliably beat into a Jehovah’s Observer:
“Just this association capacities for Jehovah’s motivation and to his acclaim. To only it God’s Consecrated Word, the Holy book, is definitely not a fixed book,” (Watchtower, July 1, 1973, p. 402)
“We as a whole need assistance to comprehend the Good book, and we can’t locate the Scriptural direction we need outside the ‘devoted and attentive slave’ association,” (Watchtower, Feb. 15, 1981)
“Channel to understanding the Holy book… All who need to comprehend the Book of scriptures ought to value that the “extraordinarily broadened astuteness of God” can wind up realized just through Jehovah’s channel of correspondence, the dependable and cautious slave,” (Watchtower, Oct. 1, 1994, p. 8).
What’s more, one MUST examination the Watchtower magazine:
Through “the steadfast and attentive slave,” Jehovah has additionally given the auspicious diaries The Watchtower and Wakeful! also, other Book of scriptures based distributions. (Matthew 24:45) Industriously concentrating these will invigorate us profoundly. Truly, we should take the time-‘purchase out the advantageous time’- for individual examination. – Watchtower 10/1/1999 p 18
These remarks are resolved to print. They are accessible for everybody to peruse. A sensible individual would quickly imagine that every Jehovah’s Observer inside the association is aware of these strong cases, and, as a rule, they would be right that by far most have acknowledged these cases. Be that as it may, not many… what’s more, I do mean not many, comprehend to what profundity the association takes these cases.
In any case, furnished with that fundamental learning… or on the other hand might I venture to state, necessity, by far most of Jehovah’s Observers don’t think about anything outside the distributions of Jehovah’s Observers. As though that wasn’t sufficiently terrible… the ruthless truth is this: most by far of Jehovah’s Observers don’t learn By any means!
Amid my ten or more years as a senior among Jehovah’s Observers, there was nothing that stunned me more than to discover that not many of them examine. When I state they don’t contemplate… I imply that most don’t think about the Watchtower’s productions.
Many would depend on whatever they heard at gatherings to shape to their whole perspective on God and their own confidence. On the off chance that they were looked with questions,… questions that on occasion could be last chance… they would depend on assembly older folks to instruct them! They would approach seniors and request heading! The much more prominent incongruity was that a considerable lot of my kindred older folks were a portion of the most exceedingly terrible understudies of the Good book I knew. Not exclusively did they not contemplate the Book of scriptures itself, they didn’t think about the associations distributions!
My brain would simply turn. They guarantee to pursue the Maker and know practically nothing about Him. Those that would ‘contemplate’ were just underlining Watchtower productions. Somebody considered an ‘extraordinary understudy’ would be somebody that opened other Watchtower distributions and included extra tidbits, perspectives or considerations from those productions! The incongruity is totally lost on them.
As though these elements were insufficient, the Watchtower Society goes further… they really demoralize ANY investigation of the Holy book itself without THEIR heading:
“Every once in a while, there have emerged from among the positions of Jehovah’s kin those, who, similar to the first Satan, have received an autonomous, censorious frame of mind… They state that it is adequate to peruse the Good book only, either alone or in little gatherings at home. Yet, unusually, through such ‘Book of scriptures understanding,’ they have returned appropriate to the defector precepts that discourses by The Christian world’s church were showing 100 years prior… ” (Watchtower, Aug. 15, 1981).
As per the Watchtower Society, an individual can’t endure profoundly without them. The Good book isn’t sufficient… furthermore, regardless of whether you sustained yourself on an enduring eating routine of Book of scriptures perusing… you would before long pass on profoundly!!
“An individual would go into haziness following two years of perusing the Book of scriptures alone; would be in the light perusing the examinations in the sacred writings alone” Watchtower 9/15/1910.pg 4685
On the off chance that your mouth is wide open in stun, you’re not the only one. Envision any individual, association, gathering or any other person actually saying that the motivated Expression of God isn’t sufficient!?! Oddly, one of the sacred texts they quote the most is 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.
Regardless, beside a forceful gathering plan, field administration, family consider evenings, circuit congregations and region traditions… most of Jehovah’s Observers don’t think about or even read the Book of scriptures.
Subsequent to leaving the association, I kept on battling with their picked obliviousness. It really irritated me that such huge numbers of individuals would so effectively hand their brains over to an anonymous association. In October 2013, the issue was intensified when the association reported that the ‘reliable and careful slave’ was presently made up the eight part Overseeing Body alone.
Their whole lives and character molded by eight men in Brooklyn, New York.
Whenever a Jehovah’s Observer goes to your entryway or endeavors to ‘witness’ to you in any setting… solicit them a couple from basic inquiries:
“Have you yourself perused the Book of scriptures spread to cover?”
“Have you yourself perused this magazine, book, tract?”
In the event that they don’t fall down in evident shame or falsehood… the appropriate response will in all respects likely stun you.
