Watchtower Says That It Speaks For Jehovah

In the Sept 15, 2010 Watchtower, page 13 para 8 it says "Thus, what is taught [in the Watchtower] is not from men, but Jehovah".

If this is true then why does the Watchtower makes so many mistakes.

The bible teaches that Jesus is the mediator between God and men. It does not mention the Watchtower at all.

How does the Watchtower get the information from Jehovah? Does he speak to them? Do they hear voices? Do they channel Jehovah in some way? How exactly do the words in a magazine come from God?

It is ridiculous that they make such a claim.

I am so glad this website is active again too. I back up my articles with the info found here. The part about the watchtower speaking for God is in direct conflict with the Bible. The watchtower does not agree with many clear statements in the Bible, so is God divided? I don't think so.

The way I understand it is that the true Christians, teach the truth of the Bible, rejecting the false man-made their teachings is based on the Bible, not man-made. Of course, since they are not infallible, there may be mistakes made now and then, but as a whole they teach the basic truths of the Bible which are mainly rejected by the churches.
Jesus said at Luke 10:16:
English Standard Version (©2001)
“The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
Again at Matthew 10:40 "He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who sent me."
So the disciples were sent to teach the truth about God and Jesus...those who received them, received Jesus, and those who rejected them rejected Jesus...when the true Christians preach that God sent the only-begotten Son Jesus to save the world, but it is rejected by those who say Jesus was God himself that came to earth and is not really the Son of God...then they are not just rejecting the messengers, but they are also rejecting God and Jesus.
