I know the WT quote have read that myself, its referring to why God choose humans to be heirs as they have experienced what other humans have in that way they will be sympathetic judges, I believe that was the context.

I will hunt around for the actual articles.

Religion is delusion.

People of every religion believe that THEIRS is truth, and all others are false.

They are ALL atheists to the great majority of religions, but can't understand how ANYONE could be an atheist to THEIRS.

Instead of laughing why don't you provide the quote from the bible? Isn't that what you are supposed to do? No real JW would miss the opportunity to witness.

You take the word of an apostate that I am one. I'm not. You also are speaking to me even though you think I am one. You realize you are pretty much a joke.

There's this:

*** w62 1/15 pp. 41-42 par. 3 World Ruler Out of the “House of Bread”***
3 Today the nations are preoccupied solely with the government of men by men. They think that the big choice lies between democratic government of Western style and Communist government of the Eastern style, although some try to keep to the middle of the road in government policy. The politically minded people of this world never give any thought to the government of God. They ignore the greatest fact in connection with the subject of government: that the Governor of the universe, Jehovah God the Creator, has a government for the earth and its inhabitants. He has already put in power the Ruler for this perfect government over long-misruled mankind. It is not a government unable to understand and sympathize with human problems. Because of God’s appointed Ruler, this government has a close flesh-and-blood tie with us people. Hundreds of years beforehand, in a prophecy by Micah, Jehovah God foretold the very birthplace of this appointed Ruler. It is the most famous birthplace on earth. This makes it plain that the Ruler whom God appoints over mankind was himself once one of us! Once a man! That fact should make this government of God’s provision feel closer to us, more intimate to us, than a mere government by holy angels.

Not what you are looking for, but didn't a jw on here claim god DIDN'T do this?

*** w70 8/1 p. 470 The Foreknowledge of God ***
But consider the implications of such a predestinarian view. This concept would mean that, prior to creating angels or earthling man, God exercised his powers of foreknowledge and foresaw and foreknew all that would result from such creation, including the rebellion of one of his spirit sons, the subsequent rebellion of the first human pair in Eden (Gen. 3:1-6; John 8:44), and all the bad consequences of such rebellion down to and beyond this present day. This would necessarily mean that all the wickedness that history has recorded (the crime and immorality, oppression and resultant suffering, lying and, hypocrisy, false worship and idolatry) once existed, before creation’s beginning, only in the mind of God, in the form of his foreknowledge of the future.

*** cl chap. 18 p. 182 Wisdom in “the Word of God”***
Why Human Writers?

7 In his wisdom, Jehovah used humans to pen his Word. Consider this: If Jehovah had used angels to record the Bible, would it have the same appeal? Granted, angels could have portrayed Jehovah from their lofty viewpoint, expressed their own devotion to him, and reported on faithful human servants of God. But would we really have been able to identify with the perspective of perfect spirit creatures, whose knowledge, experience, and strength are far superior to our own?—Hebrews 2:6, 7.

I am finding some real knee-slappers though:

Buwahahaha

*** w95 2/15 pp. 19-20 “Have No Fear, Little Flock”***
Numbers Decrease
6 In recent years the number of the little flock still on earth has become quite small. This was evident from the 1994 Memorial report. In some 75,000 congregations of Jehovah’s people worldwide, only 8,617 demonstrated by partaking of the emblems their profession to be members of the remnant.(Matthew 26:26-30) In contrast, the total attendance was 12,288,917. Anointed Christians know that this is to be expected. Jehovah has established a limited number, 144,000, to make up the little flock, and he has been gathering it since Pentecost 33 C.E. Logically, the calling of the little flock would draw to a close when the number was nearing completion, and the evidence is that the general gathering of these specially blessed ones ended in 1935. However, the other sheep in the time of the end were prophesied to grow to be “a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues.” Since 1935 the general gathering by Jehovah has been of this great crowd, whose hope is everlasting life on a paradise earth.—Revelation 7:9; 14:15, 16; Psalm 37:29.
