Watchtower Society – Clarification No. 22
With a real November pattern rain and 5 degrees "heat", it was to be expected that Jehovah's Witnesses would deny themselves the ineffective service at the bookstall. Nevertheless, I went to Bruchsal to check the situation. I lack the friendly confrontation with the members of this two-god religion (they have to put Jesus as the second deity under contact carantine like an idol). On the last two Saturdays I had other appointments and could not visit the Bruchsal Jehovah Witnesses. On both Saturdays, however, the weather was so bad that there was little chance of meeting them again.
When I photographed the empty spot where they always set up their book stalls, two Jehovah's Witnesses came by, whose fashionableA Jehovah's Witness knew the meaning of "fashionable" not! She actually still thought at the age of 33 that "neat" simply meant "neat". This is a small example of the language confusion that occurs with Jehovah's Witnesses. Clothing was immediately noticeable. I felt like I was back in my childhood when the grey winter coat dominated the street scene in Germany. The older witness explained something to the young witness and you could feel the attention of the younger one. In this weather, going out to catch members is a chance to be invited in for a cup of tea out of pity for one or the other person.
Against the personal door-to-door propaganda every action of enlightenment is ineffective, if one does not stand directly behind them and warns the respective interlocutor. Jehovah's Witnesses are mobile and fish in a very private setting. The bookstall campaigns, on the other hand, are easy to use to warn many passers-by. This was probably one of the worst ideas of the Governing Body to order these bookstand actions. It will be interesting to see whether they will stop this experiment or continue it to save face. The latter can only be desired so that Christians in pedestrian zones can hold up their teachings to Jehovah's Witnesses and expose them.
The bottom line is that the door-to-door technique of Jehovah's Witnesses (which Jesus strictly forbid his disciples to use, by the way) will cause people who are drawn into the false teachings of the Watchtower Society to inform themselves on the Internet about the abysmal Watchtower deity. The manipulation of Jehovah's Witnesses must evolve in the direction of controlling people from the earliest possible moment. Let us hope that this polarization leads people to recognize early on how they are deprived of their own ability to think. Let us hope that these people have the Internet, so that they do not have to run into this error trap with the young Jehovah's Witness in the pictures as without a chance.
The business stamina of Jehovah's Witnesses is absolutely admirable. They really have a lead for life in the Watchtower doctrine. They no longer need to think for themselves and must even avoid thinking for themselves. They avoid the suffering of doubt and insecurity, but at the same time lose their connection to life. They give up the chance to ever have contact with Jesus.
