The faithful slave has been directing people to go to the jw.org website for a while now.

Those that have gone found out about the New Light.

Because of the way JW's handle change, especially concerning their own doctrines, they will tend to doubt it when they first hear someone mention it.

But when they go online to confirm it for themselves, it will also reinforce in their Pavlovian trained minds the importance of going to jw.org regularly and often.

When the "New Light" is announced at the convention, the speaker will probably say something like, "But those of you that have been regularly going to our jw.org website as instructed by the Faithful Slave' already know this!"

And of course that will swell the heads of those that are already in the know and embarrass those that weren't.

No one wants to be left out.

All of this effectively reinforces obedience and group think while simultaneously squashing any critical thinking skills or an independent mind.

Interestingly, the actual beliefs are unimportant.

What matters is blind, unquestioning obedience to the leadership.

It's all about manipulation and control.

You have to give the Governing Body credit because it's genius.

Evil and twisted, but genius nevertheless.

This is a very good point you bring out I believe someone on youtube has a few videos on what they call jw speak. I enjoyed them and had never really thought the words they used like that now I call it coerced obedience.

That is so true, and so sad.

JW's are trained to believe that anything, ANYTHING, the GB says is gospel, even if it contradicts something said earlier by them or contradicts something from the bible.

It amazes me that a normally rational human being could go brain-dead like that, I guess it's the conditioning.

When the speaker at the District Convention says, "But those of you that have been regularly going to our jw.org website as instructed by the Faithful Slave' already know this!" you JW's on this board can hold your heads high even if your BOE regards you as a spiritual flunky not qualified to be a microphone mule during the CBS.

You can gain beaucoup points with your spouse if you go to jw.org and say, "Look at the fine food on the new menu from the slave."

Tell the brothers and sisters in your hall about the new understanding but don't mention where you heard it first.

Make sure the elders hear you talking about going to jw.org and you might eventually qualify to 'handle' the mikes.

Great post. This organization emulates all the hallmarks of high control groups. Independent, thinking members are cancerous to cults, so they demonize dissenters and ostracize them immediately.

For this organization, the only truth that matters is the "present truth." The rank and file have been trained to allow a new truth to contradict an old truth without even batting an eyelash!

But the power of persuasion is so strong. Just look at the cults we have seen in the past 100 years. They have the ability to orchestrate mass suicides, polygamist communities, sexual abuse, murder, theft, dictate medical procedures; we're talking complete brainwashing.

They can really rack up points by mentioning the website in their comments on Sunday..."Well, according to the Society's website, jworg.com ......"

Hey I was a microphone mule, a sound system sap, a literature counter loser, and even opened up meetings in prayer using God's fake name! Go ME!

What is upsetting is that the rank and file members have to APOSTATE themselves of the "old light" for the "new light"...over and over and over again. Where is the stability of their FAITH and HOPE?

There is only one source that provides that stability...that never changes...that is the Inspired Word of God...the Bible.

Great post!

The kingdom hall is structered so that JW's will know who the spiritual giants are in the congregation.

It also helps them to almost immediately recognise the spiritual flunkies, too.

Spiritual giants in the kingdom hall begin their comments by frequently referring to the mother ship:

..."Well, according to the Society's website, jworg.com ......"

That sort of sentiment runs rampant throughout the Watchtower.

That's why the BRAND NEW website...

http://nisan15hoax.tripod.com

...will have people who are NOT viewed as "apostates" to the Watchtower asking the questions.

Yesterday was my first time ever using the Internet, so you can understand my surprise when I stumbled on to this forum. I was tempted to ask folks if they've made the mental connection between the "apostasy" being INSIDE the Watchtower, so it is against all practical wisdom to believe that an "apostate" can be OUTSIDE.

When the Watchtower members knock on the doors, advertising some "FALSE DATE" coming in March, the householder will have the "Good News".

I hope that folks are ready!

Not for March, but for Sunday...

You apostates can't even realise that your own envy is making you spiritualy blind. Where are you? Where is God for you? Nowhere. You are without God, without truth, without brotherhood and without love. That is you choice and there you will be all your future if you do not make strait your path.

Some of us have telling the Jehovah's Witnesses that for years on this board.

Every once in a while one of them will wake up and realise that he or she has been deceived and will leave the denomination.

Every once in a while he or she will turn to Jesus after leaving the JW's and will receive the free gift of eternal life.

We pray for the JW's salvation.

Pah! Speak for yourself.

I can't wait for their very-timely and very-physical and literal demise. It's coming.

I will deal with this in a future thread of my own, so as not to hijack yours.

If they don't repent and quit following the false prophet Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses they are doomed.

Many of us have family and friends in the Society's grip. WE PRAY with sorrow, pray for God to soften their hearts and open their eyes that salvation is only through Jesus.

PLEASE pray that none be destroyed until the last one is saved (whether JW or unbelievers). When that time comes, then it's the day of judgment.

Good Post.
I think they have to go to be fed small bits of the 'new light' at a time, so they can gradually accept it. Little pieces are easier to swallow. If they came out with all the new light at once concerning any subject, people may be shocked into seeing that it's bunk and run for the hills. If they stood and really compared 'new' light with 'old' light, they would be quite surprised, but with the slowly built blinders, they see nothing.

It's not envy, it's profound gratitude and relief.
The other things you mention are just things you have been trained to believe is the truth by the people who spend great amounts of time telling you they only speak truth. Think about it.

Jehovah's Witnesses suffer from depression at two to three times the rate in the world at large. They have murdered countless numbers of their members to their failed ban on organ transplants. They have broken up families. Cause the divorce is of husband and wife. Turned their back on their own children. And they have lied to their flock time and time againB. So why should we expect them to be truthful Or trust anything they say? Jesus told the religious leaders of his day that they invalidated God's Word and their worship was in vain because they taught opinions of men as doctrine. This is exactly what the watchtower has done They claim they have been approved by God That they are the faithful and discreet slave That to deny them is to deny God himself. They have a form of godliness ocean but proof faults too its power. There is so much evidence that they are false prophets It is their own printed material that condemns them. And at every turn are doing exactly the opposite of what Jesus commanded. They attempt to appear right just by their works. But God does not want sacrifice He wants obedience if you go door to door but Judge your fault fellow man you are not following the Christ. As our father said this people on urs me with their lips but their hearts are far removed from Maine Me not Maine! Damn computer! I pray that you can everyone of you find the joy that excels all fought the freedom of being the sons of God.
