Do Jehovah's Witnesses Make Any Sense At All?

I've been thinking about why people become Jehovah's Witnesses and why they remain in the religion.

It seems like almost everything they believe in is flawed.

The chronology, which this religion is founded on is a problem. Pivotal dates such as 1914 and 607 B.C.E. are provably innacurate.

Their understanding of Bible prophecy is pathetically funny. They teach everything in prophetic Bible books ultimately apply to them.

Their belief that the "Faithful & Discreet Slave Class" exists is ridiculous.

In all fairness, they cannot 'prove" anything they say about their Organization as being "truth". Their "truth" changes often.

It must take a certain type of personality to want to become a Witness. If you were raised in the religion, it could very well be that you've never looked beyond what the Governing Body teaches. But if you have a "critical" mind (and that's a good thing!) you have to question a lot of things about Jehovah's Witnesses.

I agree that they teach moral cleanness as do many other groups. Other than that, what do they have that keep people enslaved to their brand of thinking??
