Watchtower should have given credit to Second Adventists for their slimy ways of "spinning" failed predictions! Their convoluted explanations are completely recycled...

WT Parallels With Millerites_Second Adventists -- Part 4 -
Majoring in Minors - Leading to an 'Us vs Them' Mentality

If you didn't accept their wacky chronology and failed dates, you weren't very spiritual, were out of touch with the "new light", and perhaps not even a real Christian!!! (sound familiar?)

Everyone has a creed! It simply means belief. Just because one does not publish it as a set of points or assertions, does not mean one is creedless.

The WT brags it is unique, and different from the churches of Christendom - I agree! Here's a list of 10 ways they are different. For light-hearted and informative reviews by Mystery Worshippers on all kinds of churches, click on "mystery worship" at www.shipoffools.com. (I write essays under the moniker "Fivesolas")

ExJW Cynthia Hampton tells her story of leaving the Watchtower in an interview with Agustin Astacio of www.healingxjws.com. You can read her complete testimony or contact Cynthia at her website www.exjwslosangeles.org. Is rape fornication? Is smoking worse than wife-beating? Were JWs told to skip college because the End was coming in 1975? All this and more!

Nothing new in the Watchtower. Loaded language in Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 1. He says the truly sincere, seeking, spiritual, honest hearted, faithful, prepared, etc, WILL believe all the new light he is dispensing!

Call 1. 00:00 - 00:44 Lady that answers the phone at WTHQ
Call 2. 00:45 - 03:45 "You can write to us." "I reserve my pass." This guy is the ultimate passive aggressive! (I think this was the guy at HQ)
Call 3. 03:47 - 05:42 "I appreciate your phonecall" Doesn't want to hear about anything negative concerning the Watchtower org.
Call 4. 05:43 - 11:25 Old publications say the early church fathers were controlled by satan, yet in later publications the church fathers were "of interest." This guy is so squirmy trying to come up with a good excuse and make it sound legit.
Call 5. 11:26 - 18:18 Lady seems interested in finding out about WT joining the UN as an NGO. "I would like to refer you to our elders"

Call 1. 00:00 - 09:43 Matthew 8:11, Jocelyn doesn't believe Watchtower says Jesus is not the mediator for all Christians.
Call 2. 09:45 - 19:14 Lady checks out WT 1956/4/1 (p.196) where WT accuses Catholics of listening to MEN (the Pope) under totalitarian rule, but denies that JW's obey any men even though the GB claims JW's can't understand the Bible without them. (Nov.15, 1979 p.27)

First Call 00:05 - 07:45 [Sarah] - Is Revelation 1:17 about Jesus or Jehovah?
2nd Call 07:46 - 11:31 Romans 5:1,9 Are you justified by faith and declared righteous? Husband & Wife quickly become very paranoid that Bridget might be an apostate.
3rd Call 11:32 - 00:00 JW's at the cart say they "aren't trying to convert anyone, they just encourage Bible reading", but GB on the videos say they ARE trying to convert people; and it IS their goal to make new baptized JW's.
