Critics say the Jehovah's Witnesses live in a fantasy world, proliferated by Watchtower literature. What they believe to be 'the truth', is not the truth at all.
What they believe to be 'common sense' and logic based on what the Bible says, is really common sense and logic based on what Watchtower literature says, - NOT the Bible.
An observation some have made is this. The organization always uses the Bible as a tool to back up what they say. The organization is not a tool to back up what the Bible says.
Because the leadership claims to be God's channel of communication, the Watchtower has unwittingly become 'God's word' for the Witnesses. What the organization says and what the Bible says can be two very different things.
This is not surprising. The very first issue of the Watchtower said this. "We should learn to love and value truth for its own sake; to respect and honor it by owning and acknowledging it wherever we find it and by whomsoever presented. A truth presented by Satan himself is just as true as a truth stated by God. ... Accept truth wherever you find it, no matter what it contradicts.
