Did The Watchtower Lie As To Whom Will Be Saved At Armageddon?
And while now the witness yet includes the invitation to come to Jehovah's organization for salvation...
-Watchtower 1981 November 15 p.21 'Stay Awake and Keep Your Senses'
Jehovah God has also provided his visible organization, his "faithful and discreet slave," made up of spirit-anointed ones ... Unless we are in touch with this channel of communication that God is using, we will not progress along the road to life, no matter how much Bible reading we do.
-Watchtower 1981 December 1 p.27 The Path of the Righteous Does Keep Getting Brighter
A third requirement is that we be associated with God's channel, his organization. ... Jehovah is using only one organization today to accomplish his will. To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it.
-Watchtower 1983 February 15 p.12 You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth-But How?
"Only Jehovah's Witnesses, those of the annointed remnant and the "great crowd," as a united organization under the protection of the Supreme Organizer, have any Scriptural hope of surviving the impending end of this doomed system dominated by Satan the Devil."
-The Watchtower, September 1, 1989, p.19 paragraph 7.
Do not conclude that there are different roads, or ways, that you can follow to gain life in God's new system. There is only one. There was just one ark that survived the Flood, not a number of boats. And there will be only one organization--God's visible organization -- that will survive the fast-approaching "great tribulation." It is simply not true that all religions lead to the same goal... You must be part of Jehovah's organization, doing God's will, in order to receive his blessing of everlasting life...
-You Can live Forever (1982, 1990) p.255
"identifying themselves with Jehovah’s organization is essential to their salvation."
-Our Kingdom Ministry, 11/1990, p. 1
"No other organization on earth enjoys an intimate relationship with the Creator. ...Clearly, those who desire to serve God can only turn to the one organization that enjoys Jehovah’s spirit and blessing. ... No other organization on earth enjoys God’s special care and protection."
-The Watchtower, 11/1/1991, pp. 30-31
"But if we were to draw away from Jehovah’s organization, there would be no place else to go for salvation and true joy."
-The Watchtower, September 15, 1993, p. 22
"The speaker concluded: ‘Let all zealously continue to support the faithful and discreet slave. It is only by doing this that someday very soon all sheeplike ones will be able to hear the happy words: "Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom..."’"
-The Watchtower, January 15, 1993, p. 18
"Rather than expect miracles in the form of divine intervention of some sort, Jehovah’s Witnesses realize that protection is to be found in their worldwide Christian brotherhood."
-The Watchtower, December 1, 1993, p. 13
Isn't the answer to this question Yes?
Also, the article says that humans should not be judging each other.
Obviously, when writing this article they must have forgotten about Judicial Meetings.
(I'm just saying)
