My wife found a JW tract on the train today. It is entitled “THE END OF FALSE RELIGION IS NEAR!”
“False Religion…meddles in war and politics” (then I guess pre-Christian Judaism was a false religion)
“False Religion…spreads false doctrine” (which is true) but here is an example that is cited: “Jesus taught that the dead will be resurrected-an unnecessary action is humans had an immortal soul.” Apparently they don’t realize the difference between the soul and the body.
“False Religion…tolerates immoral sex…Even churches that condemn immorality have tolerated religious leaders who have sexually abused children.” (next to that bullet is a picture of a priest in a Roman collar)
Then it talkes about Rev. 17 and gives the standard anti-catholic interpretation, but the whore is linked to false religion in general.
Then on the back page it says “How to identify true religion” … “Practices love” (true) “Trusts God’s word” (true) “Strengthens familes and upholds high moral standards” (true) … then it jumps from that point to say that “If more people practiced versions of what the Jehovah’s Witnesses preach and practice, the Holocause could have been prevented and genocide would scourage the world no more.” :eek:
