People are starting to realize that what we have been preaching for many many many decades is true:
Back then we were called crazy and locked up and tarred and feathered for bringing light to the abuses by the Church. Some honest-hearted ones
listened to us. But now here demise is closer than ever, and the veil over her rotten fruit is being revealed for all.
Is God at fault? Not at all. I often tell people that one of the qualifications in the Bible for an elder in a congregation (some Bibles translate
elder as bishop because of the term in the orignal Greek) is that he has to be the husband of one wife. The Bible never forbade bishops (elders, not
the clergy as Christendom makes them out to be) from marrying:
(2 Timothy 3:2) King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
So why does the Church practice celebacy? Actually the very next chapter in Timothy reveals it:
(1 Timothy 4:1, 3) . . .However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying
attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons... forbidding to marry, . . .
Jehovah reveals to us that the teaching forbidding men to marry actually is demonically inspired. And if you have any question as to whether it is
demonic or not, look no further than the celibacy clergy to see the demonic consequences of such Satanic rules, such as celibacy.
The Bible reveals everything. It reveals light and it shines light on darkness.
Of note were the words of the book entiitled: Mankind's Salvation Out of World Distress at Hand! published in 1975, those words seem closer now than
The [United Nations] will cease to find satisfaction in their lustful relationship with the “great harlot,” Babylon the Great, and the mouths
of the “seven heads” of the scarlet-colored “wild beast” will “eat up her fleshy parts.” To the whole “wild beast” organization,
“ten horns” and all, she will become as a worn-out old harlot, no longer desirable for greedy, selfish use. Realistically, under stress of the
global crisis, the political rulers, whose nations are members in the United Nations, will become hardheaded in the light of the worsening world
conditions. Ignoring all sentimentality, they will be forced to take drastic, heartless action for the preservation of their political institutions
and social, economic structure. They will see that the world empire of false religion is an international nuisance and a hindrance to their emergency
operations because of the Babylonish religious beliefs, practices and customs.
The many gods and goddesses that Babylon the Great has worshiped will not come to the aid of the world empire of false religion, to save her from
action by her former lustful paramours. Her former lovers, the political and military elements, will realize that those deities of Babylon the Great
are helpless and have been of no saving powers to them when prayed to by the priests, chaplains, clergymen and religious potentates of the world
empire of false religion. Those political and military elements will feel deceived, tricked, fooled and will lose respect for worldly religion. They
will not have to turn Communist in order to “hate the harlot,” but will simply turn radical and thus be able to cooperate with “godless
Communism” in doing away with the hypocritical religious organization. They will give her the treatment that was meted out to some harlots in
ancient times, “completely burn her with fire.”—Genesis 38:24. 28
We can imagine what this will mean to the Vatican and its Basilica of Saint Peter, to the religious cathedrals, churches, mosques, temples,
synagogues, shrines, and to other religious structures! We can imagine what is in store for those who officiate in impressive vestments in those
religious buildings. Let not Christendom imagine that she will escape because she parades before the world in the name of Christ. She, too, has played
the religious “harlot” like her mother, Babylon the Great. The friendship that she has cultivated and maintained with the political and military
elements of this world will fail her. She will be shocked at finding that adulterous friendship with this world made her an “enemy of God” and of
his Christ. (James 4:4)
