"A truth presented by Satan himself is just as true as a truth stated by God. ... Accept truth wherever you find it, no matter what it contradicts."
(WT 7/1879, pp. 8-9)
A truth given by Satan himself is just as true as a truth explained by God. ... Accepts truth wherever it may be found, no matter who or what it contradicts.
Where people set their logic higher than God, the great abandonment of God follows. The Watchtower, as a great mascot, bears the truth in the coat of arms and has been so contaminated with human logic combining since at least 1879 that the statement Jesus makes of himself no longer applies to the Watchtower. Jesus says explicitly and crystal clear: I am the truth. The Watchtower put this statement of Jesus aside at the earliest times and set out in search of truth that is not founded in Jesus Christ.
Who should be surprised that Jehovah's Witnesses are still stubbornly and ironically going their own way and refusing to be led by Jesus? Rather than waste a moment trusting in Jesus, they give the leadership of their lives to the so-called faithful and intelligent slave. They declare Jesus to be one of them, albeit the greatest, who ever lived. But he remains one of them.
So even a few Jehovah's Witnesses have the hope of one day becoming like him an angel, while the majority of Jehovah's Witnesses are joyfully content with the wafer-thin hope of living eternally in perfect bodies on a perfect earth. They have only overlooked one small thing: They have not the slightest assurance from God that they will achieve this goal.
All the promises of God that relate to our individual destiny and concern our individual being saved are bound to faith in Jesus Christ. But since Jesus is only the greatest Jehovah's Witness for them, that is to say only a Jehovah's Witness that is not superior in principle to Jehovah's Witnesses, the factor that can be described as salvation through faith in Jesus is fundamentally annulled.
This fundamental annulment of the Salvation through Jesus faith is also the logical consequence of the selection made by Jehovah's Witnesses. They act as truth collectors and, like ants, collect their building material piece by piece, truth by truth, in order to build out of it all, with the help of their human brains, a superiority which, in the end, should make God accept them as the "true worshipers".
But the fact that God has bound all salvation to Jesus Christ does not meet their plans.
It would be very interesting to know how many of Jehovah's Witnesses have actually just fallen into this trap of thinking and how many are knowingly present in it. For anyone who belongs to a religion that also uses truths from Satan's hand as a building block cannot be founded in God. Therefore, there must be a large number of Jehovah's Witnesses who are aware that they are serving Satan. This is how they think and live the next quote from the Watchtower:
Lying to people you consider to be Gods enemies is justifiable as theocratic "war strategy".
(WT 6/1/1960, p. 352)
To lie to people of whom you believe they are enemies of God is to be justified as a theocratic "stratagem of war".
Thus truth gathers around truth in the Watchtower Society and builds an ever higher and thicker wall between the Jehovah's Witnesses and Jesus. All the key messages Jesus tells us are consistently suppressed and replaced by "truth" found elsewhere by Jehovah's Witnesses. Instead of sitting at the Lord's table and taking life for free from His hand, they run, dressed like kings, to the garbage dump of world truths, digging in the dirt and scraping together fractures and shards. They are the enemies of God strategically lied to by faithful and intelligent slaves. Namely, the enemies of the Watchtower God, to whom the faithful and intelligent slave has been committed since Charles Taze Russell.
The faithful and understanding slave openly trusts Satan to tell the truth! Can anyone confess more clearly?
