The Watchtower Society does not set any rules at all.

The Watchtower Society is a SERVANT of The Christian congregation.

It obeys their instructions, not the other way around.

Those mature in Christian growth have, through the Scriptures and the evident manifestation of Jehovah’s favor on his faithful and discreet slave, come to appreciate that Jehovah deals with his people as an organization and that his spirit operates in conjunction with that organization.(Matt. 24:45-47) Consequently, when they consider the factors that affect growth in their congregation, they know that a major consideration is their response to the instructions regularly provided through the columns of The Watchtower, Kingdom Ministry and other theocratic publications and through assemblies.

UNchained PROVED that when they refer to "The Society" they are NOT talking about the Watchtower Society.

They are talking about "the faithful and discreet slave and its Governing Body".

Quite different.

Here is says "provided through the columns of The Watchtower".

They are NOT provided by the Watchtower Society. The Governing Body are simply PUBLISHING instructions in the Watchtower magazines.

There is a big difference between using the Watchtower to PUBLISH instructions and the people providing those instructions.

FOR EXAMPLE, when a Newspaper reports on the decisions made by the President of the US, UNchained would try to make us believe that the Newspaper was responsible for those decisions.

But that's absurd, the newspaper is simply REPORTING those decisions.

Similarly the Watchtower Society DOES NOT SET ANY RULES for Jehovah's Witnesses.

The Watchtower Society merely REPORTS on the rules that come from the Christian congregation.

As we can see, UNchained is lying as usual, using deception to try to bolster his lies.

Sadly for UNchained he is not smart enough to even understand his own posts.

This is very easy to understand...

*** w81 12/15 p. 15 Your Bible—How It Was Produced ***

The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures is only the beginning of the Watchtower Society’s conversion to computerized photocomposition and typesetting. The Society’s major printing branches are presently installing modern offset presses. It is hoped that in the near future phototypesetting can be used worldwide to handle pre-press operations for many of the more than 160 languages in which the Society currently prints literature. As a result, faster and more accurate typesetting will reduce the time lapse between the English editions of the Society’s publications and the editions in other languages.

*** w58 1/1 p. 27 par. 9 Endurance Serves to Prove Integrity ***

The Society prints Bibles, books, booklets, magazines and tracts for distribution world-wide.

*** w56 5/1 p. 267 True Riches and True Friends ***

The Watch Tower Society is interested in further earth-wide expansion of the Kingdom good news. To that end the Society now operates seventy-eight branch offices throughout the world. It has sent more than 1,800 graduates of the Watchtower Bible School of Gilead to a hundred different lands. To assist Jehovah’s witnesses in their witness work the Society prints Bible literature.

By now most people must be realising that UNchained is just plain stupid.

All he has done is proved that the Watchtower Society is a PUBLISHING HOUSE.

It DOES NOT set ANY rules for Jehovah's Witnesses.

It merely PRINTS BOOKS when Jehovah's Witnesses tell it to print them.

Why is that so hard for UNchained to grasp?

Low intelligence perhaps?

*** w50 10/1 p. 348 pars. 23-24 The Way of Success ***

However, what we see exemplified in God’s woman, his heavenly universal organization, we should look to see in his visible organization. Why? Because his higher, greater universal organization uses it as her earthly instrument. That is why we do see those motherly traits, those traits and acts of a virtuous woman, in the Watchtower Bible School of Gilead and in the Watch Tower Bible & Tract Society, because these profess to represent and serve God’s woman. We thank God for providing and using them. So we stand up respectfully and bless his faithful organization, his queenly “woman” in heaven which makes all these loving provisions for us as children of God.—Prov. 31:28.

If we have an appreciation of all these truths, what shall we say is the way of success? All the examples and the teachings of the Word of God agree that it is the way marked by faithful, loving obedience to God and to the commandments he issues through his Theocratic organization. Hence keep in touch with the central organization, God’s Theocratic “woman”. Keep in tune with it by accepting the Theocratic organization rules and instructions which God issues to us through it. Never forsake these, but be teachable, as trustful children.

*** w59 10/1 p. 583 Have You Been Baptized for Life?***

The facts show that Christ has a composite “faithful and discreet slave,” the remaining ones of the body of Christ, to represent him. This slave serves as God’s channel of communication. To act consistently with our baptism for life and into the Greater Noah we must SUBMIT TO and cooperate with that slave and ITS LEGAL INSTRUMENT, the Watch Tower Society.

Dumb as a post. Dumb as a post.

Yes the Watchtower Society is t LEGAL INSTRUMENT.

It make NO RULES WHATSOEVER that Jehovah's Witnesses follow.

It merely PUBLISHES and TEACHES those rules to people.

It is an INSTRUMENT or a TOOL, not a decision maker in any respect.

ALL the decisions are made by the Christian congregation.

The Watchtower Society simply obeys the instructions it is given.

Is LEGAL in the wordly sense only, and that is all you pharasaic WT witnesses care about. But Gods law is higher and you are yet to even consider it.

Point being that if its not the law in a certain country or state then the WTBTS will not expose pedophiles in their ranks.

Yes Gareth your only concern is for the law of the land not the law of God.

You forgot this:

The Watchtower Society pays out millions of dollars in court settlements to the victims who have been silenced by the entity that gives it instructions.

That is correct, and JW will know about this world wide as those that know about this will testify as much more than two witneses.

Advice for Jehovahs Witnesses fro the Dalai Lama:

You may enjoy discussing religious and philosophic matters with your best friend or Valentine today. Seek out those who are like-minded and enjoy pleasant conversation, which will be both uplifting and entertaining. If you are working out the details to a mutual plan of action regarding educational or legal pursuits, be sure you both understand the steps involved.

You may be extremely busy with all the little things you must do today and you're likely to find your e-mail inbox overflowing. Go slow and take it one step at a time to avoid becoming overwhelmed. Spending time with your favourite neighbors or siblings will help keep you going; in fact, they may be willing to give you money

What great advice!I went to all my neighbors in my apartment complex and they all gave me money. Made over $500 just this morning. Listen to Steve Stanko. He is telling it true.
