Right from the outset Don Cameron perpetrates a misleading falsehood. He is in error. The scripture at Matt 24:45-47 is NOT the most important teaching in JWs' theology. You might recognize this claim as a page right out of the book of the Danny Haszard himself, whose erie obsession of attempting to discredit JWs has no bounds as he continuosly copies and pastes this same claim over and over again.<quoted text>(3/16/08)
Today's Watchtower Study article begins on page 24 with the Governing Body's interpretation of the most important Scripture in their theology. This is where their claimed divinely appointed authority comes from:
"When Christ inspected the (Society) in 1918, he found those anointed ones on earth to be faithful in providing spiritual 'food at the proper time.' Hence, Jesus was PLEASED thereafter to APPOINT THEM OVER ALL HIS BELONGINGS.-(Read Matthew 24:45-47.)
But the Nov 1, 1993 WT clearly shows them to be in error. Here it states:
"Ask yourself: Why would the Bible only “imply” its most important teaching—who God is? The Bible is clear on other basic teachings; why not on this, the most important one?"
Yes the most important teaching of Jehovah's Witnesses is self explanatory since it is contained in the very name of the organization. The most important teaching being: Who is God?
The fact is that whether or not the faithful and discreet slave found among Jehovah's Witnesses was appointed 'over all his belongings' or not really has no bearing on the authority of God's organization or the faithful and discreet slave. We will prove this beyond a doubt and show that Don Cameron has faulty reasoning indeed and that his book does not belong in anyone's theocratic library but rather in the garbage can right next to the used toilet paper.
