Serious questions to the Jehovah's Witnesses
Torah / Watchtower Law
Acts 13, 38-41 Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses. Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you: 'Look, you scoffers, wonder and perish, for I am going to do something in your days that you would never believe, even if someone told you.'
Dear Jehovah's Witnesses,
Paul displays, if you want to read it for one time open-hearted, at this point the law, the Torah, even as temptation. "Beware" Jehovah's Witnesses! Your organization has next to the Torah even added its own rules of conduct.
The Watchtower, [german] Volume 1956, page 464. "It is imperative today that those who wish to live in the new world of righteousness keep pace with the New World society. Why? Because, soon now, it will usher all its members safely through the greatest of all tribulations, the war of Armageddon, and bring them into a bright new world of God’s making, where mankind will enjoy everlasting peace, prosperity and happiness ..."
Here, the Watchtower Society promises to rescue you for the price of "keeping pace". I would rather understand that as a call to bondage. And if you checks yourselves, you will admit that you are enslaved. You call the Watch Tower Society your mother, as the Catholics call the Pope, their father. It's hair ruffling, that people share the hope that they should really focus on God, man.
Question: How will you understand the work of God, if your mother has not even seen this work? Do you really believe that a newspaper publisher, founded by a Freemason, can lead you to God?
