Here is the book that the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses actually do focus on:
http://www.archive.org/details/AngelsAndWomen
Here is the description of this supposedly channeled novel from the above site:
"Angels and Women (1924). This book is a revision of the book Seola by Mrs. J.G. Smith. According to The Golden Age magazine (Oct. 27, 1924 p. 35 and Golden Age, July 30, 1924 p. 702), published by the Watchtower Society (Jehovah's Witnesses), Seola was revised at the suggestion of Charles Taze Russell and published as this volume. Editions of the book at the headquarters of the Watchtower Society (Bethel library) state: "Introduction by J.F.R.[Joseph F. Rutherford]. Appendix by C.J.W.[Clayton J. Woodworth]. Written by a brother had been long in the service, was incapacitated, and sought to provide for himself by thus "indirectly" presenting some valuable information. Not altogether up to date, as "Angels" booklet and other information supplements and revises what this work contains."
The book, Angels and women is where much of the strange beliefs of the organization originated. Their monolatrous cosmology is based on the supposed revelation of an allegedly repentant demon who wanted to get back in favor with the primitive god mentioned in the novel that is the basis of the god of the organization that formally rejects the OMNIPRESENT GOD at the core of the teachings of the historical Jesus.
You could say that the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses is the first New age group formed based on channeled information. This happened years earlier than when channeling became popular as the basis for many so called New Age groups in the late 60s and early 70s!
The site archive.org is a wonderful source for out of print books and magazines and even has other forms of media. Even Judge Rutherford's door to door windup record player speech, "Religion is a snare and a racket", can be downloaded from here.
Thanks GPS, I bookmarked that site.

You are welcome! But we have to be diligent. If the government has it's way, internet censorship by corporations will be the norm. Here is a video that I just watched:

&fe ature=g-logo&context=G2b73 cc4FOAAAAAAAAAA

This is centered around copyright issues and profitability of the recording industry but it will open the floodgates for any large corporation with lots of money to suppress knowledge. The organization of Jehovah's Witnesses are a corporation with lots of money and a pack of pitbulls for a law team.

Jehovah's witnesses are not focused on the past, whatever was printed or said before 1930 is old news and not relevant. Jehovah's witnesses have pressed on and have been blessed with Jehovah God's insight from his holy spirit for the future of mankind.

Jehovah's witnesses are living and working for the future happiness of mankind, after this world and all the ungodly unbelievers are gone forever, then we will have the blessed promises from God's word as our reality to look forward to.

All the smearing and hatred along with the slander from unbelievers today, won't even be brought to mind in the new world.

(Isaiah 65:17-18). . .“For here I am creating new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.

I assume then that you and other JW defenders will not be bringing up anything about the Catholic church and other religions that may have happened before 1930?

The Roman Catholic religion has been continually exposing itself as corrupt and ungodly, they have destroyed themself by their blessing of bloodshed, and the book of Revelation shows all false religion as condemned by Jehovah God.

Before 1930 is just a year I picked to show that old news is not relavent to establish fact. I speak for myself and I do use the Bible as my authority, as any minister should do.

(John 17:17-18) 17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth.

You are so wrong, the wicked hypocrites in Jehovah's visible earthly organization are identified, that's all. That is the way all religion should do, but they don't. Even the first century congregation of Christians had to expose and disfellowship the hypocrite.

Exposing the wicked hypocrite does not make the religion wrong, it makes the congregation aware that the wicked will be disfellowshiped and keeps the congregation clean.

(1 Corinthians 5:12-6:1) 12 For what do I have to do with judging those outside? Do YOU not judge those inside, 13 while God judges those outside?“Remove the wicked [man] from among yourselves.”

>>>I have not heard of any "wicked hypocrites" of Christian religions in the news today, and, of course, yesterday is old news, that doesn't count.

If you are not focused on the past then why does the organization still cling to the eronous hybrid error, "jehovah" that was made in the 13th century?

This is even after the governing body admitted the error exists but falsely says it's ok to keep blasphemy going as the word has been in common usage for so long.

the whole organization is based on this eronous hybrid error being the only proper name of GOD, so the governing body tells you to use it anyway. For the governing body to honestly face the error is to admit the whole organization is a house of cards ready to topple, due to this one enormous error made by Judge Rutherford!(not to mention the many other errors that have been exposed!)

BTW Christian witness, I know of at least one I would consider a "wicked hypocrite" who not only was not removed from the organization but was apparently promoted to leadership in WT headquarters, Grizzle.

True! JW's keep changing what they believe! Nothing firm, nothing true, ever changing and all JW's MUST believe the changes made as New Light!
A truely false religion!
