This podcast asks the critical thinking question as to how the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses claim their power and authority. If they do not claim to be inspired by God, how is it that they teach their members that they are the only true religion? How can they make rules and expect others to follow them, if they are not inspired of God? Where does the Governing Body actually receive their power and authority? We encourage you to do your research http://jwfacts.com to learn about the foundation of this religion. Be willing to be open minded and let the chips fall where they may.
Many people have been told that Jehovah’s Witnesses are not allowed to ask questions. But, you know that is not true because there is a segment in the Watchtower titled Questions from Readers. This video goes into detail about how Jehovah’s Witnesses are treated after they ask the question but don’t want to accept the answer.
If you are one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, you have a requirement each month to turn in a time slip indicating how many hours, books, magazines and a host of other production numbers to the Secretary in your congregation. He will then tabulate all of the hours for each publisher in the congregation and send the final numbers to the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society. This podcast goes into detail on how those numbers are used to measure the spirituality of its members.
It is amazing how your character is judged by what you report or should we say, “don’t report” each month. Because when the traveling overseer aka Circuit Overseer comes to visit the congregation every six months, he takes the pulse of the congregation to see how everyone is measuring up.
Does this sound like a religion or a business parading around as if it is a religion? You decide!
How many teachings have the #Watchtower taught throughout the years that were actually dead on arrival? That means, it had no merit even before the teaching was introduced in the Watchtower’s publications. This podcast is the first of a series that will delve into some of the Watchtower teachings and use critical thinking to examine such teachings.
This podcast pertains to the teaching of the King of the North
May 15, 1969 Watchtower “Crushing All Nations in Our Day by God’s Kingdom”
TODAY’S INTERNATIONAL POWER STRUGGLE
Dan 11: 1-45
The facts of history in fulfillment of this reliable prophecy show the ruling factors of totalitarianism, particularly world communism, to be the final “king of the north” and the ruling factors of democracy, particularly the Anglo-American combine, as the last “king of the south.”—Dan. 11:1-35.
Daniel Prophecy Publication Chap. 16 pp. 280-281 par. 21 The Contending Kings Near Their End
21 With the disbanding of the Soviet Union in December 1991, the king of the north suffered a serious setback. Who will be this king when Daniel 11:44, 45 is fulfilled?
Only time will provide answers to these questions. We are wise not to speculate.”
