Does The Governing Body Have Blood On Its Hands

French philosopher Blaise Pascal once noted, "Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction."

A case study for this statement can clearly be evidenced by the Governing Body Of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The Governing Body present themselves as ‘lovers of Truth and righteousness’ who are the only persons on this planet who speak for God. This doctrine is at the very core of the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses. One either accepts that Christ is exclusively using the ‘Faithful Slave’ ( in actuality the Governing Body ) or one should not even refer to themselves as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses .
Apparently God informs the Governing Body exclusively what the inhabitants of this planet need in the way of spiritual direction, and he does this a little at a time primarily through a magazine that they publish bi-monthly.
The Watchtower, with its cheerful covers in full color is regularly providing lovers of truth and righteousness with their spiritual "measure of food supplies at the proper time." The problem with an outsider looking at these claims, is that it then becomes difficult to identify who to accuse of the genocide perpetrated on the basis of this belief - a group of men whose ever shifting policies result in the injury and death of hundreds of innocent people, or the God who they claim instructed them to tinker with these important doctrines.
The Governing Body seem quite content to blame God for these deaths, but their collective consciences seem unable to grasp the realties of what has really happened here, that is - that they have consistently enforced policies that have killed people and then absolve their own part in these deaths, by passing on the blame to God for instructing them to do it. The specter of Nuremberg rises to haunt them.
The Governing Body have played Russian Roulette with lives and then passed the responsibility for their failures onto a God, who if the Bible is to be believed, despises their very existence for the way that they have treated the ‘lowly ones’.
For example:
Death by ‘Shifting Policy’. The reality is that many hundreds of people have died or been seriously injured needlessly due entirely to their lack of understanding of the very Book of which they claim to have sole representation. The shifting Factor VIII policy, the shifting organ transplant policy, the ‘adjustment’ in neutrality issues, and now the shot-in-the dark attempts at understanding what constitutes so-called ‘major’ and ‘minor’ blood fractions, have stripped families of their loved ones. Like the incompetent British Generals at the Battle Of Passiondale’ in WWI, they have described their victims are heroes, and while these fallen innocents lie forgotten in shady corners of their theological graveyards or washed down the lonely gutters of the passing decades, it is their offspring, not the self-styled 'Glorious Ones’, who learn to live with their grief.
I well remember the unfortunate Jehovah's Witness whom I met in a non-US country, imprisoned for years for refusing his daughter a blood transfusion. His life became a long litany of homosexual rape and brutality. He now exists a broken man. His ordeal may never have had to be endured, given the recent shifts is what was once considered an immovable scriptural edict.
Many have lost their lives or spent years behind bars for a refusing to engage in non-combatant activities offered to them by their Government rather than enter the military services. Again shifting policy at the hands of God / GB has changed that scenario, so now persons can avoid being sent to jail and exercise their conscience over non-combatant duties. Yet innocent blood has already been spilt and somebody is responsible.
Another example :
Death by Disfellowshipping - Let me offer the GB a challenge, especially given that they herald themselves self-confessed ‘lovers of Truth’?. Why not publish in the Yearbook for 2003, the statistical figures for those who have killed themselves due to having been disfellowshipped. A disciplinary procedure that is so open to interpretation that each decade the WTS changes its policy on how to treat such persons. They have used as an offensive weapon the most natural right that belongs to people, that of the expecting the love and loyalty of a family.
Many years ago I fished out of the river the body of a kind-hearted JW who had been disfellowshipped for smoking. He struggled with this addiction, and was also one of the most gentle people that I have met. He could not bear to live with his ‘failures’ and the prospects of being shunned by those whom he had come to respect. He left behind a wife and two small children. Did the GB offer to feed this fatherless family, or clothe them? Hardly. When in a hardly controlled anger I spoke with a Branch Overseer in the land I was serving in about the matter, the best he could offer, was ‘Step, these things happen’. Think about the implications of this statement. ‘These things happen……My question is, ’ How often?
Had this poor man committed this ‘sin’ prior to the change of policy towards smokers in 1972, when smoking was still a matter of conscience and not a dictate, he would not have been ‘shunned’. He is one of hundreds whose lives have been bought to an early end by their attachment to flawed theological policies. The GB well knows that my figure of ‘hundreds’ of suicides over the past few decades is a conservative one.
A more subtle, but equally dangerous reaction to WTS thinking is :
Death by Non-Life. Mircea Eliade once stated. "A person who steals the vision of another has murdered his soul". These dramatic words capture, I believe, the essence of one of the WTS most collectively damaging concepts. In order to separate its adherents from the rest of humanity and subsequently control their lives, the WTS has with determination and singularity of purpose, severed individuals from the creative urges that are so important to mankind and his progress. Potential Doctors, researchers, ecologists, artists, poets, musicians, intellectuals have been stirred into the melting pot of WTS life in an attempt to stifle the unique voice that cries out within each of our hearts.
In doing this, the WTS approach a Hitlerian mentality in trying to extinguish all those within its system, those it sorely needs to survive, who have any ability to think for themselves and work by initiative and creativity, rather than edict and fear. Hitler in killing the Jews, also killed the heart and brain of Germany, exactly what it needed to survive.
Any loyal Jehovah’s Witness who strays onto this Board and reads this message would need to determine in the own hearts where the blame for these deaths lies, somebody has caused them. The GB claim that each JW makes their own decisions, based on the individual ‘Bible trained’ conscience. This is scurrilous nonsense crafted to allow them to appease the brothers and the authorities. People have been coerced into making decisions that have endangered the safety of themselves and their families and in many cases resulted in death.
As for me, as far as I am concerned, any person who behaved in such an irresponsible and precarious fashion, killing people by policy changes voted around polished corporate tables, is in my opinion worthless as a human being. Any man who did so should be languishing in jail with any other common criminal.
The Watchtower draws attention to Jesus Christ’s view of the Pharisees by making the following comment:
Jesus viewed most Pharisees as self-seeking, merciless money lovers who oozed hypocrisy. (Matthew, chapter 23) They accepted the entire Hebrew Scriptures in the light of their own explanations but attached equal or greater weight to their oral traditions. They said that their traditions were "a fence around the Law." Far from being a fence, however, their traditions invalidated the Word of God and perplexed the public .Part of a ‘perplexed public’ is now asking you whether you are willing to accept that by inciting people to die for your cause, you are in fact guilty of exactly the same attitude you decry in others, and in fact are equally as guilty of the murder of the innocents, as they are.

The sad thing, is that Jehovahs Witnesses per se, do not realize that there is NO organization appointed by Jehovah to represent him in this time.

Once a person understands this, the utter foolishness of following a man made organization is made visible. The reprehensible nature of the WTBTS will be dealt with in his due time for propogating faleshoods in his name.

Horrible but true. If smoking is sinful and deserves disfellowhipping - why not try to help those addicted. Ask Jehovah to inspire a program or a JW stop smoking support group to actually help people overcome their addiction. Smokers are not sinners - they are addicted to a very addictive substance.
It breaks my heart to think of those who felt so desperate they took their own life because of this horrible, unscriptural arrangement. It so clearly cannot be from Jehovah.

Why blame the GB for people's choices?

"The sad thing, is that Jehovahs Witnesses per se, do not realize that there is NO organization appointed by Jehovah to represent him in this time."

Of course there is no organization appointed by Jehovah, We don't believe there is. But what there is, is 7 million people who love Jehovah and want to serve him and thus we are his Witnesses and together we form a congregation.
Thus we chose to be his congregation. That is what christianity is about, circumcision of the heart, not flesh.

No one follows a man made organization.

LGB,
this is well written and I appreciate your work. I can't understand how anyone can defend this, although, I once fought hard for the org. and thought I was correct in my thinking.

"The Governing Body present themselves as ‘lovers of Truth and righteousness’ who are the only persons on this planet who speak for God. This doctrine is at the very core of the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses."

Kimmy jo, don't worry about ronde. He is just a troll. Every board has one. We just have to learn to ignore his ravings. I personally believe that he is counting his time here. His slip this month should get him some real good privileges.

That reminds me. Isn't it great how the organization gets witnesses to do their dirty work? All they have to do is call it privileges and give them only to those that are "worthy".
Toilet cleaning, lawn mowing, cleaning the Kingdom Hall, running back and forth with the microphones. All "privileges."

Witnesses have no idea that they are being manipulated.

GBBS:

This vile posting reveals your hateful agenda. Do anything but serve Jehovah as one of His Witnesses. Sounds to me like Satan's agenda.

I find it interesting that you consider the account of the flood a "fairytale". So you don't believe in the Bible? Jesus refenced the Flood, you don't agree with Jesus either.

Then any person who reads this blog should know you doubt the word of God. What advice can you offer that would be better than the word from Jehovah! And you reveal the hatred in your heart by this posting.

What is it with you and the money the brothers donate to this organization? I ask again, prove to me that they misuse this money.
And what is wrong with window washing? Being a janitor? You lack any sense of humility, something you need to be obedient and serve Jehovah.

If you mock being submisive, remember Satan had an issue with authority too, and we know what is in store for him real soon now.

We are pawns of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society? You are a pawn of Satan.

Isn't that circular reasoning? The bible says the flood happened as described in Genesis, the bible say's Jesus believes Genesis, therefore it all must be true.

I found this amusing. You use quite a bit of name calling with absolutely no substantial explanations as to why the names you use are bad in the first place.

It's actually quite similar to a child calling someone gay or a nigger. You expect the person who is being called these names to take offense when you haven't stated why they should be taken offense at.

"Satan's agenda"? Has it ever crossed your mind that some people who do not subscribe to your particular superstitions may not take offense at the first mention of "Satan"?

Perhaps some people may not believe in a grouping of 66 fairytales. Perhaps you screaming out that a person doesn't accept said fairytale book won't make a difference to some who actually don't believe archaic bronze age legends that are completely baseless and have never provided a shred of empirical evidence.

But hey, maybe you don't need evidence. However, I do -- and there are many others who also have a queer need for substantial proof to base their entire live-view upon. Crazy, isn't it?

I think believing in a God whom wants you to know about and love him(for some reason) and yet doesn't give us more than a 2000 year old book and a warm feeling in our chest is ludicrous.

No offense intended if you feel that it somehow makes you a better person.

What does the wTBTS have to do with Jehovah's Witnesses?...RONDE

Your baptismal induction identifies you as a member of the Jehovahs Witnesses under the direction and auspices of the self appointed governing body which was within the legal corporation of the WTBTS until 1971. Although legally separated from the directorship of the WTBTS since 1971, the GB still directs all aspects of the doctrinal and congregational allegiance to the WTBTS.
Everything you practice and believe emanates from the WTBTS. The rules of the Organization are the rules of the Jehovahs Witnesses.
I wonder if you practice cognitive dissonance. I hope so... because the alternative is that you simply are an idiot.

JoePublish said...

I don’t know how serious Ronde is when he emphatically states: “Of course there is no organization appointed by Jehovah, We don't believe there is.”

Is this really what Jehovah’s Witnesses (Faithful and Discreet Slave – Governing Body) teaches? Read the following and you be the judge.

Here’s the “official” position of Jehovah’s Witnesses:

(Foreword to 2007 Yearbook) A Letter From the Governing Body

“No doubt every one of us has a strong desire to sanctify the marvelous name of our God. As we increase in knowledge of what a wonderful God Jehovah is, we are moved to cooperate with him AND HIS ORGANIZATION in making his grand name and purpose known.”
...
Your brothers,
Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses

(From w07 12/1) “When I told him that I wanted to share in the preaching work full-time as a pioneer minister, he looked at me intently and asked, “Do you believe that this is GOD’S ORGANIZATION?” “Yes,” I replied. “That” led to my baptism…”

(From w07 12/1) “Our loyalty to the true God and his organization should surpass loyalty to any human, no matter how close.”

(From w07 11/1) “Rather than give each Christian a separate revelation, Jehovah uses his spirit to direct his organization”

(From w85 3/14)
“GOD’S ORGANIZATION.” That expression was used by a member of the Watch Tower Society’s editorial staff during the daily Bible discussion at the Bethel dining tables over 60 years ago. How it thrilled the headquarters family in Brooklyn, New York! That unique phrase, “God’s organization,” served to guide the FUTURE thinking, speech, and writing of those Bible Students.”
Notice the question in the Watchtower: “What Do You Say? □ How would you define the word “organization”?”

“2 Today, that may seem strange, since the word “organization” is used regularly among Jehovah’s Witnesses,”

Let’s summarize:
• “That unique phrase, “God’s organization,” served to guide the FUTURE thinking, speech, and writing of those Bible Students.”
• “Jehovah uses his spirit to direct his organization”
• “what a wonderful God Jehovah is, we are moved to cooperate with him AND HIS ORGANIZATION”

After reading what the WTS has printed on this matter, how can anyone say that the Watchtower is teaching that “there is no organization appointed by Jehovah” that we should "cooperate" with?

And how can anyone speak for the WTS and state: “we don’t believe that.”

Let’s restate/requote what the WTS said about the use of “organization” amongst JWs:

““Today, that may seem strange, since the word “organization” is used regularly among Jehovah’s Witnesses,”

And, there’s a reason why JW’s use organization “regularly”. That’s because they are taught this organization was selected amongst all others to be “God’s Organization”.

Once again, Ronde's comments are found in direct contradiction to official WTS teachings.

Well that solves it then. Ronde is just an idiot.

Ronde said...

Kimmy Jo:
"YOU JUST DON'T GET IT..."

No, you don't get it. You are in circles. You state "Here’s the “official” position of Jehovah’s Witnesses:"", but there is no such thing as an official position.

The governing body does not determine an "official position", anymore than a congregational body of elders determines official positions. They just teach the congregation.

Ronde said...

anon said:
"Since when were JWs known for their logical thought?"

Since they want to serve Jehovah by studying the Bible and then becoming one and then following the bible more. That is logical.

To not be a JW is not logical since not being a JW leads to death.

But you don't believe in the flood.
So your above statements is false or your heart is lacking.

Well, it works for Jehovah's Witnesses as that 2000 year old book leads us just fine.

Some anonymous fool said:

No, The baptism question is "identify you as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in associaiton with God's spirit-directed Organzation."

It does not say WTBTS or GB?

That is because the organization is all 7 million Witnesses, not just the overseers.



"Although legally separated from the directorship of the WTBTS since 1971, the GB still directs all aspects of the doctrinal and congregational allegiance to the WTBTS."

You are again wrong. The GB works with the CCJW not the WTBTS. The letters come from the CCJW, not the WTBTS.


"Everything you practice and believe emanates from the WTBTS. The rules of the Organization are the rules of the Jehovahs Witnesses."

Not true. The District convention is not from the WTBTS, it used to be but it is prepared by the governing body. It says so right on the program. If you would attend you would know that. That is where we get our instruction.

And there are no rules in the organization.

"I wonder if you practice cognitive dissonance. I hope so... because the alternative is that you simply are an idiot. "

Well, at least I am doing more to help the organization then you guys can ever do to hurt it.

Ronde said...

Joepub said;
"I don’t know how serious Ronde is when he emphatically states: “Of course there is no organization appointed by Jehovah, We don't believe there is.”"

Well we don't believe that the organization is appointed by Jehovah. We believe that there are 144,000 that were anointed by holy spirit and are in a covenant relationship with him. And there are 7 million others who work with those ones. That is not appointed by Jehovah that is because we are voluntarily serving him.

Then joepubl misquotes the yearbook:"“As we increase in knowledge of what a wonderful God Jehovah is, we are moved to cooperate with him AND HIS ORGANIZATION in making his grand name and purpose known.”"

Yes, it is Jehovah's Organization, not Watchtower organization, because all 7 million of us serve him in an organized manner. But that is not appointed by Jehovah.

Well said GBL, well said. He would make a great writer for the FDS - he would fit right in! Funny thing how he replies with his non-sense with a straight face - that's scary.

Perhaps he is practicing on this web-blog-site before he goes to Bethel to serve "God's Organization", in hopes of becoming one of the infamous writers of the WTS.

I mean no one with a half a conscience could be a writer knowing how much they have twisted the real trugh of their organization's history.

Ronde, one day you will wake up - I know this because you are way to curious about what is going on with the FDS/GB (what has gone on in the past) and ALL THESE CHANGES. What do they mean? Time will tell... time will tell.

I have a brief web-blog for you... after you read it, you'll say to yourself, how true... how true:

Oh, really?
(Matthew 24:45-47) 45 “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Happy is that slave if his master on arriving finds him doing so. 47 Truly I say to YOU, He will appoint him over all his belongings."
(1 Peter 2:8-10) . . .. 9 But YOU are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that YOU should declare abroad the excellencies” of the one that called YOU out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 For YOU were once not a people, but are now God’s people; YOU were those who had not been shown mercy, but are now those who have been shown mercy."
(Isaiah 43:6-7) 6 I shall say to the north, ‘Give up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not keep back. Bring my sons from far off, and my daughters from the extremity of the earth, 7 everyone that is called by my name and that I have created for my own glory, that I have formed, yes, that I have made.’


Jehovah's Witnesses are not following a man-made organization. That may be the problem of those who have apostatized...they were serving until a specific date, they were following a man or men. Jehovah's Witnesses dedicate themselves to Jehovah God, until the end of their lives. If the promised new world comes in their life time it will be a great blessing to them. If not, if they have misunderstood Jehovah's timetable, their lives have not been wasted but have been spent in service to the Most High, Jehovah God, and what privilege could be better than that? It's a great life we live, although subject to the stresses and illnesses all humans are subject to. At least we know WHY, and that a universal issue is at stake. You go on believing you can serve God by your own standards and see where you end up. It will be interesting and awesome to see how it turns out.

One of the Faithful said...

And you are all missing a HUGE point: in the end in doesn't matter what your opinion is. What matters is that Jehovah's will is being and will be done on earth as is has been in heaven. It is up to each of us to determine what Jehovah's will is for us, and then to do it as best we can without our weak human imperfect bodies and minds, and then to do it. So nothing said here really matters. GBL can give up "inside informatio" all he/she wants to. Jehovah's will WILL be accomplished in spite of all efforts to restrain it. Just make sure you are on the right side. It's up to you, and no one else. Ignore the rantings and rebuttals. Make a sincere and prayerful attempt to determine the truth, and then go with it. If Pharoah and his mighty war machine wasn't able to stop Jehovah's will, if the Roman torture machine wasn't able to stop Jehovah's Witnesses, if the Inquisition and if Hitler and his SS weren't able to quash the truth, if the religious suppression in Georgia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, China, etc. isn't able to stop Jehovah's purpose...what do you think about the feeble attempts on the part of this Discussion Board? Piffle. A puff of dust in the wind. A mere dust on the scale of Universal Justice.

But...I wouldn't want to be you, GBL, when Jehovah's Day of Judgment arrives. You should be very afraid.

That's all I have to say about that.

-----------------------------------
I agree with everything you said until you got to the end and all your good reasoning fell apart. The Roman Torture Machine and the Inquisition? Jehovah's Witnesses? Are you kidding?
What is the world do Jehovah's Witnesses have to do with any of those things?
Jehovah's Witnesses are a modern day religion. They have nothing at all to do with the spread of christianity or the attempts to stop christianity.
I do not mean to be rude, but you are totally confused. True religion has nothing to do with the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.
By the way, this blog is by no means an attempt to turn people away from the real truth. On the contrary, I urge people to seek their own truth and to remember that the Watchtower Society is just a legalistic, money-grubbing, rule making, ritualistic organization that claims to speak for the true God with no proof whatsoever for such claims.

Actually, dear, when the real Jehovah (not the Watchtower Jehovah) arrives, you and your alliance with a religion that calls God a liar everytime they make a mistake, should be very afraid.
Thank you for your concern, but as for me, I am confident about my future. Jesus is my savior and he is the look that I look to. No a human organization.

"If you mock being submisive, remember Satan had an issue with authority too, and we know what is in store for him real soon now."


The word "submissive" is one of the Watchtower catch words. It is used to get you to go with the flow, believe everything that is sad to you and not to question. Yes, I mock the way the Watchtower uses the word "submissive". It is a mind control word. Read some of the Jim Jones and David Koresh speeches. They throw that word around a lot. A cult word if there ever was one.

Governing Body Letters said...

"......if the religious suppression in Georgia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, China, etc. isn't able to stop Jehovah's purpose..."


Coke, Microsoft and Pepsi are just a few of the corporations that are in the countries named above and all of them are better recognized than any of the Jehovah's Witness magazines.
So, in line with your reasoning, I guess that means that Jehovah (the Watchtower Jehovah) is less powerful than sugary, caffeinated American beverages and a software company.
