Jehovah's Witnesses "Fake News" alarm
December 8, 2018, 15:50 uploaded by Armin JorgAuthor: Armin Jorg from Vienna
Numerous negative media reports about a systematically scandalous handling of abuse cases forced the religious community to make a comprehensive counter-attack.
The allegations was a year-long tactics, but this has not led to the allegations decreased. Now they have decided to go over the attack and sweep up all the media that disseminate negative information about Jehovah's Witnesses as malicious, devilish, and hypocritical in order to discredit them in this way.
In the magazine Watchtower of August 2018 (study edition) under the heading "Do you know the facts" now all believers are sworn on how Jehovah's Witnesses have to position themselves correctly.
Here are some excerpts from the article:
Paragraph 1: "the devil and his world wants to distort our thinking". Initially, it shows who the enemies are, the devil and the entire "his" world. Here the all-encompassing conflict in which the believers are stuck becomes clear.
Paragraph 3: "We have to be careful and not believe everything we hear". A good advice, if not meant:
Paragraph 6: "We must be especially careful when it comes to reports of God's people. Let's not forget: the devil is the accuser of God's faithful servants [Jehovah's Witnesses] "then" we are not surprised when we hear outrageous accounts of Jehovah's Witnesses. " It becomes clear here: reports are particularly wrong when negative reports are made about Jehovah's Witnesses. Negative = wrong.
Paragraph 15: "The Bible warns against relying on one's own mind." What is taught to believers in every fundamentalist sect is not to use their own intellect but to trust only the leaders of the religious community.In a box is shown where the believers should inform themselves: Only on the websites of the Watchtower Society reliable information can be found.
Mind you, this religious community is a corporation under public law, for me personally these views are manipulative and anti-social.
