Watchtower Society – Clarification No. 113
Today we were in Bruchsal. We drove there again from Ruedigers apartment with the motorcycles. I really enjoyed the winding side roads that Ruediger chose. On the way to Bruchsal we stopped briefly in the middle of the Pampa at the roadside at a small holy memorial place, in which a holy picture stood and behind it was in the frame a second picture (photo) of a boy. Ruediger said that he did not know what had happened to the boy, whether he had drowned or not and that this was superstition. At that moment I thought of the pain of the bereaved and that superstition is a miserable attempt to deal with it. When we arrived in Bruchsal, Ruediger hoped that there would be no Jehovah's Witnesses present, because that would have been the best thing, but unfortunately that was not as it turned out.
At first we saw a stand of Scientologists right at the beginning of the pedestrian zone. When Ruediger asked a representative if he needed to distribute science fiction, the man was just about to go back and produce a sentence, but when Ruediger preceded him with loud words "Ugh, Ugh, Ugh, Ugh!" The man decided immediately, without saying a word, to turn around and leave as soon as possible. And that although, as Ruediger said, they are specially trained not to let themselves be blocked so easily.
At first we got something to eat in Ruediger's favourite fish shop, and then we strengthened our slogans. Ruediger briefly explained to me the distance rules to the Jehovah's Witnesses who had set up a stand and mentioned that the Jehovah's Witnesses could call the police if the distance was wrong. I felt the atmosphere in the Bruchsal pedestrian zone relaxed and relaxed. In the background you could hear an accordion player playing "gypsy songs". The passers-by seemed relaxed and open-minded towards me. It wasn't long before a man came up to Ruediger and I saw them talking and went over to them to take a photo. The man first said that he didn't want to be published, but when he realized that I wasn't one of Jehovah's Witnesses, he told me that if he was published on our site, against Jehovah's Witnesses so to speak, that would be fine. I also thought the reaction was okay.
Next, I was approached by a woman. She told me that her brother is a Jehovah's Witness and she is a Christian and that it hurts her a lot to see what Jehovah's Witnesses have done with her brother, especially as he does not want to be in contact with her although he lives right above her. I said this was a typical Jehovah's Witnesses procedure. Then she said that Christians are noticeably connected to each other and that this connection exists without coercion and without all the organizational hassle that Jehovah's Witnesses have. I could only agree with her. That was very encouraging for me. Christians recognize each other and the connection through the Holy Spirit forms unity with Jesus at the head. Frankly, exactly what Ruediger once said to me proves to be true with me, namely that I will meet Christians who have similar feelings as I do with regard to "being connected through Jesus".
Another man said to me, "I think it's good that they're standing here." Another little gift. I thanked them for it. I was standing in front of a bed store when the shopkeeper came out to read what was on my signs. When he had read everything carefully, he just smiled benevolently and went back to his shop. Maybe he was glad someone had the courage to stop Jehovah's Witnesses, I thought. Then I watched as a slightly older Jehovah's Witness lady, who seemed absolutely elitist and conservative to me, persuaded a passer-by. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but I could see that she didn't want to let him go, even though he was constantly signaling rejection with gestures. And we stood there with our signs, so to speak. Strange situation. As if she had taken our action as an opportunity to show who the stronger one is.
A little later an older man came up to me with an Italian accent. He said he was 75 years old, Italian and Catholic. And then he began to tell me that he ran four churches in Italy and was a psychologist, but was not a pastor or a psychologist. I had the feeling that he wanted to give the impression that he was a big player in his field. He then gave me lectures on the difference between the human spirit and the Holy Spirit. He said that our street action would not help because people were too busy with materialism and computers to listen to the man in the street, etc. Probably he could not grasp the connections.
I was relieved when Ruediger came to my rescue and braked the man who talked me into focusing a lot a little before he went further. In the meantime, while this man had distracted me, I had noticed that the Jehovah's Witnesses, as Ruediger put it, had dismantled prematurely and cleared the field. Ruediger then said to me for fun that I was a "very bad employee" because I had been so distracted.
This day gave me the feeling that our action was not in vain. Ruediger and I agreed that the project would pay for itself and that we could not measure its success. We leave that solely to our Creator Jesus.
Right at the beginning a couple greeted me. Juergen said: "They just greeted you!" But they were already too far away. The feedback from the passers-by was overwhelming. From the first second to the end many people talked to us and not a few confessed Jesus as their Lord in the conversation. Jehovah's Witnesses had to witness all this in silence and well hidden under their pavilion. They were severely frustrated by normal life and dismantled their free literature stall on time. These people had no cuts in the people. Even Jehovah's mega-super-elite Witness, who always tried to get people directly involved in advertising conversations behind our backs, had to realize that her bloody message of the Kingdom of Jehovah was met with only open criticism. The people of Bruchsal are sensitized and I thank Jesus for that.
In addition to Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientologists were also involved. However, this science fiction lie cult was represented by sad figures who could not even cope with a slightly stricter word. Volunteer's minister stood on their jackets, which means: "We stand here without pay and without sense and understanding. Everything we do, we do for free... Jehovah's Witnesses, on the other hand, were represented by people who, by their appearance, indicated: "We are millions of times superior to you..." These people could have done better lobbying in the European Parliament. They had built absolute arrogance into all their facets. Inside arrogant, outside boastful, elegant and festively dressed. The Jehovah elite greets the rest of the world!
Actually we were quite late – the route to Bruchsal was partly closed – and in Baden-Wuerttemberg the closures are often only announced when one is only 100 meters away from the closure. But we didn't miss a thing. Jehovah's Witnesses in Bruchsal apparently only fulfil their bookstore duty in order not to simply give up the fight against the critics. They stand there like wax figures, still come up with this or that trick, but don't come up with a green branch anymore. Even the super-noble Jehovah's Witness with the white hair, the motionless face and the militarily tidy posture couldn't change this fact. Her appearance was absolutely inconspicuous and she achieved nothing with her conversation victims.
Juergen and I, on the other hand, had an incredibly large number of people interested in talking to each other. Manfred, whom I had already spoken to several times, and many, many others who expressed their love for Jesus. Juergen came over several times to tell me how impressed he was that the people were openly approaching him to talk to him. But there are also mainly the passers-by who first read the signs and then take a look at the Jehovah's Witnesses and then become thoughtful. The hunting grounds of the Enlightenment are eternal. The enlightenment work is still necessary because Jehovah's Witnesses cannot stop their seduction. The inner program of the Watchtower Doctrine is seduction at all costs.
The day was wonderful. No stress, no organization in our backs, no compulsion to work hours, no appointments, only pleasure and honesty. Anyone who relies on Jesus, who can be reached by everyone without organizations like the Watchtower Society or the Catholic Church, experiences pure freedom and often does not even recognize what Jesus is doing through him. Religion puts pressure. Religion is oppression. Jesus frees and gives the most genuine serenity imaginable. Jehovah's Witnesses see it all live when we hold up our signs in Bruchsal, and then consider how early they can leave without losing face. Jehovah's Witnesses are the epitome of religious oppression for which, according to their teachings, one can calculate something. The performance pressure of the Watchtower Society is the cross or stake that Jehovah's Witnesses take upon themselves. They do not even want to know that this is not the cross of Christ that they take upon themselves.
If Jehovah's Witnesses had even a hint of honest thinking, they would not be able to submit to this Watchtower blackmail. The self-deception that lies in putting an organization in Jesus' place is the driving force that does not allow them to come to honest insight. They do not believe in God at all, but have only the cheaply calculated hope of a worldwide human revolutionary program. They are at the mercy of these human activities and cannot trust in God. They work for people, hope for people and follow a concept not far from communism.
People who go so far and accept that in their religion people have to bleed to death for a god with a humanly invented name, stand like penguins dressed in exaggerated nobility in the pedestrian zone of Bruchsal and try to seduce other people to their world-political organization. Apparently they do not know what they are doing. But this statement is not enough. Many know that they serve Satan, such as the Jehovah's Witness in Essen, who stretched her hand shaped as a devil's sign into the sky and said, "Back to the Father".
Things continue and I am glad that the sign holding up is taking hold. Jehovah's Witnesses scratch the bottom of the pot and are disgusted by it. For them, the book desk service in Bruchsal has become an emetic. The only thing that helps them out of the jam is high spirits, but not their God. Jehovah does not exist. Jehovah can only be an alias for Satan.
