The Watchtower says that Jehovah requires obedience and 100% loyalty the letter of the law. It's all or nothing. If this is true, then loyalty to the organization is rebellion against God. Here's why.
The Watchtower magazine says, 'Apostasy is, in reality, a rebellion against Jehovah. The Watchtower, October 1, 1993, page 19
Logical minds point out that the truth is exactly the opposite of what the Watchtower teaches!
Loyalty to the organization is, in fact, rebellion against God! Here's why.
The path to eternal life is loving God with ALL your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Luke 10:27; Loyalty to God involves prayer, meditation, and listening to God's Holy Spirit for guidance.
The Watchtower contradicts what the Bible says. They say that Jehovah can only communicate with the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. And the Governing Body tells Jehovah's Witnesses what God says. JW's believe God communicates through His Word, the Bible, but the Watchtower is in charge of teaching what the Bible says.
Even if the Bible says something completely opposite of what the Watchtower teaches, Jehovah's Witnesses believe that the Watchtower only teaches what's in the Bible because their leaders (8-12 men) are in communication with Jehovah.
JW's spend a lot of time in prayer and they say they have a close relationship with Jehovah, but when they have a question, the Watchtower tells them what Jehovah said. JW's believe it's impossible for Jehovah to speak with them. He only communicates with 'the faithful and discreet slave' (the Watchtower).
Thus LEAVING the Watchtower (apostasy), allows former Jehovah's Witnesses to pray to God and listen for answers from Holy Spirit without Watchtower interference. This is what the Bible really teaches.
If JW's thought seriously about this truth and the supporting evidence in this article, the truth would set them free. 'Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.' John 8:32
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that God is all knowing. His rules do not change and his standards remain the same because His Word is the truth. This means that what Jehovah required in the beginning is what he requires today. Jesus brought 'new light' and new understanding, - simply to love God and your neighbors.
Jehovah's Witnesses believe in the story of Adam and Eve. Even though it's not in the Bible, the Watchtower teaches that Jehovah will restore a paradise earth filled with perfect people like he originally intended with Adam and Eve. In the beginning Adam and Eve were given only one simple standard to live by. i.e. Don't eat the fruit from one tree in the garden.
How many standards does the Watchtower say Jehovah has today? Check it out.
Is it possible for imperfect people to keep all the above rules perfectly? Obviously not. Adam and Eve were supposedly perfect and they had trouble keeping just one rule. Why then does the Watchtower say that Jehovah expects so much of his people?
The truth is He doesn't! It is the Watchtower that requires a lot of Jehovah's Witnesses. When referring to themselves, they use God's name Jehovah to command 100% loyalty and obedience.
What is the Watchtower's motive in deceiving Jehovah's Witnesses? Power and money. Jehovah's Witnesses work for free to further Watchtower financial interests and investments.

The path to eternal life for Jehovah's Witnesses, means they must abandon loyalty to the Watchtower. God is the path to eternal life. Religions can't save us. God is real. He created each one of us. He can communicate with every single person on the planet at the same time if he wanted to. He is all powerful and a God of love who cares about us deeply. All we need is faith and a desire to have a personal relationship with our Creator. God reaches out to all who reach out to him.
