A god hater? No, I am a human lover.
You know, I have placed so much WT literature in people's hands, I figured I might see if I can whittle their whole core philosophy down to one, childish illustration. Here is what I came up with:
Like all JWs, I started life out on the right side of this drawing. The individual comes last. ...Eventually I came to reside on the left side of the drawing, with the rest of humanity. If Jehovah wants to destroy us on the left side of the drawing, then I suppose it is His right. I'll be happy to die for the sake of the diagram drawn here. The human soul is primary.
Do you hear this, brad? The human soul is primary. Each person holds the god-principle inside themselves. The key to understanding this is to respect yourself as a creation of God. You must not shirk your responsibility for personal free will by giving it to the WT corporation. Do not live under the inverted structure, if you want to find the true goodness in yourself.
- First, comes your own personal self (your knowledge and personal convictions).
- Then, comes support from (or allegience to) your family.
- Then, comes support from (or allegiance to) state/civil authorities.
- FINALLY, support from (or allegience to) systemic churches or religions.
The Watchtower, by utterly inverting this structure, betrays their goals: Total control of the human being, and erasure of their self-awareness.
Let us not forget Jesus example of the woman caught in the act of sex with a man not her husband. Jesus didn't even have time for the question of her judgement. He crouched down and began drawing in the dirt.
Now, how different is his behavior from the Watchtower, in relation to the simplistic sins of their followers? How petty are the investigations into the lives of the rank-and-file JWs? How long do you think the personal files kept on each member? Why must the Watchtower track all of this data in regard to their church? The Christian principle of mercy or forgiveness is not known to that church.
I am not a god hater, because God is not with your religion. The death ratio in your hoped-for end of the world, is 1000 heathens for every 1 JW. Only the psychopathic or tragically decieved would hope and pray that the Earth would be cleansed of .999% of it's humans, in order for them to finally have a happy life.
Anyway, if the JWs get put in camps and persecuted, I will be one of the first people to try and break them out via the underground JW railroad or what have you. I just wish they'd wake up before that persecution of them begins. I am speaking of many close friends and my family here, so know that I do not wish any harm to JWs in any way. I want them to find the truth that sets one free.
