The Faithful and Discreet Slave.

Who Is God's Slave?

Examine this quote from the organization for truthfulness.

'Since Jehovah God and Jesus Christ completely trust the faithful and discreet slave, should we not do the same? After all the slave has shown itself to be faithful in doing it's assigned work. For example, the Watchtower magazine has been published for some 130 years. Meetings, assemblies, and conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses continue to build us up spiritually. ... The slave is able to provide wise and timely warnings because Jehovah God and Jesus Christ are blessing it. The slave deserves our complete trust.' (Watchtower Feb. 15, 2009 Page 27)

Does The Slave Deserve Our Complete Trust?

Are they acting in harmony with the Bible says? Or are they taking liberties with the Bible under the delusion that they are 'God's organization' and the only channel of communication between God and the world?

  1. Jesus appointed a faithful slave to organize God's people in his absence before armageddon. (There is no scriptural evidence to support this claim. Here's what the Bible says about the slave.)
  2. 'Jehovah God and Jesus Christ completely trust the faithful and discreet slave' (Where is the proof? Is this a fact or opinion?)
  3. The 'slave has shown itself to be faithful in doing it's assigned work' (Did Jesus authorize any work? Or is the 'assigned work' an interpretation of what the Bible says?)
  4. Printing the Watchtower, ... meetings, assemblies, conventions, and building people up spiritually indicates the slave is faithful. (This too is a false assumption. Many religions are doing the same thing today.)
  5. The slave is able to provide wise and timely warnings. (Not true. Check out these 'wise and timely warnings' that never came true. e.g. see Watchtower predictions about the end of the world in 1975)
  6. Jehovah God and Jesus Christ are blessing the slave. (There is no factual evidence to support this claim.)
  7. The slave deserves our complete trust. (Another false assumption.) See What Does The Bible Say About The Faithful and Discreet Slave?

Jehovah's Witnesses pride themselves on speaking in agreement. They believe that all their doctrines come from God through the faithful and discreet slave. Faithful Jehovah's Witnesses never disagree with Watchtower doctrines. Jehovah's Witnesses say it's because they are 'in the truth' and that's why everyone believes exactly the same way. Unity of beliefs and harmony, is thought to prove they are the only true Christian religion.

However critics say this is not normal behavior. They say that the reason why Jehovah's Witnesses always agree with their church is because they're scared stiff of being disobedient or rebellious. Those that disagree are thought to be following the same path as Satan, because the Jehovah's Witnesses believe the devil rebelled against God.

The Jehovah's Witnesses follow the teachings of the Apostle Paul, even though Paul claimed to be Pharisee after converting to Christianity. See Facts About The Apostle Paul. That's why speaking in agreement and being 'like minded' is so important to them. Jehovah's Witnesses are taught to be proud of their united beliefs. They are proud to be part of one mind. Independent thinking is thought to be dangerous path leading to apostasy. See mind control
