New Light, Burning out of control, or flickering to survive? The Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society has used the “New Light” theory to explain all of their failed teachings. They use this ideology as a means to change their teachings. By doing so, they expect Jehovah’s Witnesses to sit back and accept their mistakes. Since the advent of the Internet, people are doing more research online and discovering many falsehoods about the religion. They are no longer accepting new light as a reason to continue blindly following the Watchtower.
