Does the Watchtower Society Replace Jehovah?Submitted by Teeny on May 21, 2012 - 5:00 am 19 Comments
One of the many reasons I decided to no longer be a Jehovah’s Witness was because it came to my attention that the Watchtower Society had actually replaced God. From my discussions with a fair amount of ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses, I see that it’s widely accepted that the Organisation does in fact subtly demand to be worshipped like God.
Please ask yourselves the following question: Is the Watchtower Society God’s mouthpiece, or are they God incarnate? I only ask because it’s the Watchtower themselves that make the claim “to question the Organisation is like questioning Jehovah himself!” We must accept everything they tell us because it is as if Jehovah has told us these things himself, right?
Okay, knowing that, please take a second to answer the following multiple choice quiz:
If you ask a Jehovah’s Witness who they worship, how will they answer?
- We worship Jehovah God.
- We worship the Watchtower Society.
How did you get on? I think it’s safe to say that nearly all Jehovah’s Witnesses would claim to worship Jehovah God and NOT the Watchtower Society. This troubles me though. Tell me if I’m wrong, but when you tell a Jehovah’s Witness to their face that the Organisation is plain wrong and then proceed to give examples of how they have flip-flopped doctrine and caused so much harm to families, what’s the common accusation they fire at you?
You’re an Apostate!
I have been called an apostate quite a few times recently. I always try to ask my accuser to stipulate the grounds on why they’ve called me an Apostate. Unfortunately, none of them have had the decency to answer my simple question. If I’m not mistaken, isn’t an Apostate someone who goes against God? Wasn’t Satan classed as the first Apostate because he lied about God? While generally the word Apostate refers to anyone who leaves a religious group, the Jehovah’s Witnesses have redefined it (as they like to do to many words – see, ‘generation’) to label a person as an enemy and opposer of Jehovah.
Therefore, if I tell fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses that the Watchtower Society is a haven for paedophiles, in what way am I lying about God? Would I be right in saying that anyone calling you an Apostate for discussing the terrible facts about the Jehovah’s Witness Organisation is in fact replacing God with the Watchtower Organisation?
I think all Jehovah’s Witnesses would be far more easier to talk to if they openly admitted to worshipping a group of men in North America.
