Jehovah`s Witness/Most rediculous quotes from the Watchtower.

Question
QUESTION: Derrick, I will be sending you once a week the most rediculous quotes ever came out of the watchtower.
So here is your first one.

"From Black to White He Slowly Turned.. Rev. William H. Draper .. gave a living affirmative answer to the famous Biblical question,'Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots?' Though once as black as charcoal, the Rev. Mr. Draper is now white. His people say that his color was changed in answer to prayer. Many years ago Draper was employed by a fair-skinned man, and he was often heard to remark that if he could only be white like his employer, he would be happy. While in the white man's service Draper 'experienced' religion. From that day forward he prayed constantly and fervently that he might become white.. He first experienced a prickling sensation on his face, and upon close investigation found a number of small white spots scarcely larger than
the point of a pin. He became alarmed, thinking he had some peculiar disease but he did not suffer and aside from the prickling sensation felt nothing unusual. Gradually the white spots became larger and extended themselves, until now, after the change has been in progress for over 30 years, Draper has not a single dark spot on his body." {ZWT Oct 1 1900 296-7}

I will send you another one next week.


God bless.

ANSWER: Yes, I remember reading that one years ago, but had forgotten about it.

BTW, what is wrong with being black?  That is what the article would seem to imply.  I'm getting some gray hairs on my head....wonder if I could pray that away too?

Besides, Michael Jackson did the same thing, only I don't think prayer had much to do with it.

Thanks for the laugh, Luis.  Can't wait to see the next one.  

God bless.

XXXXXXX

LOOOOL, you are right, Michael Jackson use to be black. I guess the watchtower must have been way ahead of their time.


Hey, we can't argue with what's in black and white coming from the minds of those faithful loonies from the watchtower. You know, like the one jakev likes to kiss, rando's feet!!

I am going to have some fun with these two loonies.

Answer
They do provide constant humor and entertainment, that's for sure.  

At any rate, Jakev seems to want to continue arguing with me about Rando being dishonest, despite that the facts and links are there for anyone to read.  So just watch the board tomorrow, and see the questions I have posed in response to Jakev....I have sent him just a few of Rando's blunders and dishonesties, and am giving him the opportunity to explain them.  Should be enlightening to watch.  I decided a few weeks back I wasn't having debates with him any longer, due to his mannerisms and misconduct.  But since he is now Rando's right-hand-man and has the gall to say Rando is honest, then I am making an exception...LOL.  

I can only imagine Rando's frustration when reading this.  Think about it....Rando was feeling some relief that these statements of his were way down the board where most current readers won't find them.  But now they are being brought back, thanks to Jakev.  Can't you just hear him now?...."Jakev, you are the first real JW since my joining here to actually go along with me when I lie, but now this is getting embarrassing.  Will you do me a favor?....SHUT UP!"

Can't you just see it?  Ha, ha.

Thanks for the quotes, Luis.

Expertise

I was raised in the religion known as Jehovah`s Witnesses for 13 years. Since becoming a born-again Christian, I have researched extensively this religion, especially their doctrines and their history. I can answer questions about their doctrines from the perspective of Biblical Christianity. To be clear: Jehovahs Witnesses is the religion of my upbringing, though I myself was never baptized into the religion, nor have I ever been considered as a Jehovahs Witness.

Experience

29 years of Biblical research into the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, and how they differ from the teachings of the Watchtower.

Organizations
I would advise each questioner to this forum, to carefully READ the profiles of the various volunteers. There are several such as myself, who are not practicing JWs, but will provide you with an accurate and honest answer, regarding JW teaching. If we don't know the answer, we will try to research and get it for you. There are also some excellent practicing JWs here, who also endeavor to give you a factual and honest answer, based on their point of view. I believe by getting both points of view, the questioner can weigh the evidence for themselves, and make an informed decision. Unfortunately, there are also 3 here who claim to be JWs, but do NOT give honest, or well-researched answers. They will tell you only what they want you to believe, and they often hide facts about the history of their religion, as well as print untruths about other people's beliefs. This is done in an attempt to deceive the unsuspecting reader. It can be easily seen who these 3 are, simply by reading the public posts and "answers" which they write. Their posts will normally be filled with personal attacks, and if you question them about some teaching or aspect of the Watchtower that makes them uncomfortable, they will often reject your question, question your motives for asking it, tell you that you have been reading "apostate" sites, or turn the conversation into an attack on another expert. These ones are better avoided, as there is nothing to be gained by way of positive discussion, as they are not interested in intelligent conversation, or honest dialogue. If after reading the forum, you still have any questions as to who they are, just ask me, and I will be happy to tell you. And I can also provide documentation of their willful dishonesty. One thing is for certain...in a forum where people from both sides claim to be "Christians", there should never be any willful lying. Such ones only create a distraction in the forum, and provide nothing of any real value.

Education/Credentials
High School, some college. Studies of God's Word, the Bible, and how it compares to JW theology. I have found my own personal study and experiences to be far more valuable than any formal education or training. The Bible message is clear...Salvation is ONLY through and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and no religious organization has a thing to do with it. While attendance at a Bible-preaching, Bible-believing church is a must for spiritual growth and fellowship, no church can grant salvation to its members. Nor is joining a particular group a prerequisite for being saved.
