WOULD GOD REALLY USE AN EARTHLY ORGANISATION?
IF SO …..
IS HE USING THE GROUP KNOWN AS JEHOVAH'S WITNESS AND THEIR LEGAL ORGANISATION KNOWN AS THE WATCHTOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY?
The above questions you will find debated on the net.
Mostly, I assume that readers of these pages believe in the Bible as Gods Word and are looking for factual answers to which course of life to follow. I also assume that they have many questions regarding the Bible and who represents what it has to say. This information is provided so that you can become more fully informed about the organisation known as The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (WTBTS) as well as the religion that this society represents Jehovah's Witnesses, and, for you to make a balanced decision.
This page is STRICTLY produced from a PRIVATE point of view. I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses and here, I explain why I stay with this organisation regardless of the mistakes that they have made.
If you have travelled around on the net, you will have come across numerous pages about Jehovah's Witnesses. Some of the information you will find is, about changes in doctrinal teachings, so called prophecy (I call it "so called" because it depends on if you call it prophecy or interpretation), difference in personalities, and the strife this has caused.
Other sites will try to persuade you that the WTBTS uses mind control techniques to recruit and keep the rank and file JW under the influence of the WTBTS.
Most of what you read is downgrading to that organisation. I have found, in reading a lot of these sites, that, the information they contain is not accurate, or, they fail to present the full picture. Generally, you find that they try to explain what they think we believe, but when what they say is examined, they really have no idea as to what we do believe, so what they say is extremely misleading.
I would like to give another side to the story so that you, the reader, can determine for yourself what you want to believe. It is hoped that YOU can weigh the evidence yourself as to what opposer’s of this organisation are saying has any real foundation, or, if they are people who have had their pride badly damaged and are just trying to stir up trouble, or have some other ulterior motive.
To start, some have made the claim that the word ORGANISATION does not appear in the Bible so no organisation is needed today. It is absolutely true. The word organisation does not appear in the Bible. So why is there seen to be so much emphasis on an organisation?
DEFINITION OF THE WORD ORGANISATION
All the dictionaries that I looked at, in essence, say that an organisation is a group of people doing something in common in an organised way. Doing things orderly. To arrange or being arranged in an orderly manner. Look up several dictionaries yourself, to see what they have to say.
This essay will not degrade any of the sites that speak against Jehovah's Witnesses. That is NOT the purpose of these pages. My intent is to give some positive information to people interested in Jehovah's Witnesses or for Witnesses that are confused about what they have read at other sites.
I will let the Bible be the measuring stick by examining examples to demonstrate what kind of people that our creator used in days gone by and if he, infact, ever used organised groups.
Whenever I examine any subject to do with the Bible I always try to keep a few things in mind.
Rom 15:4 tells us that all things were written for our instruction
2 Tim 3:16 we are told that all scripture is inspired from God and beneficial for teaching….
Heb 6:13 It is impossible for God to lie
Armed with these texts, I always go back to the very beginning to see what Gods word has to say on a subject from the start. I am not going to deal with all examples, just some main ones to illustrate my point, as there are too many examples to include here.
