Watchtower and bible tract society
Reasoning From The Scriptures by Watch Tower Bible and Tract SocietySome folks who live in the city may have encountered or even feared those wandering the neighborhood who are out to get you. No, I am not talking about the criminal element, but rather those known as the Jehovahs Witnesses. Actually these missionaries are just out to save you, even though you might not want to be saved. But they mean well, and to guide them and help them this book was written. You see, unlike professional missionaries, I have seen families of Jehovahs Witnesses going door to door attempting to spread the Word. Personally I find nothing wrong with that, because missionaries of another denomination saved me, or at least they tried to. Anyway ...
Most of this book is a sort of manual that says things like, If they say this, then you say that. Biblical references are quoted to back up arguments. I wont diverge into their beliefs here because that is not my intention.
Some of the topics were well presented and enlightening for me. I could understand what they were getting at. What they said about philosophy being the product of imperfect men vs Scripture being from a perfect God really struck home with me.
One problem I found was that it became very confusing when they started quoting different interpretations and translations of ancient scriptures. When different words mean different things in different languages even an expert could take things out of context, maybe even subconsciously.
Probably the greatest criticism I have for this book is the answer they give for when someone they are conversing with says, Lets pray about it. Basically, the answer says no, and they give their reasoning. For a religious book to say that to an inquiring mind is like pulling the plug on a ventilator. You just killed the patient.
I will say this about their religion which will help you understand what this book is about. They believe all the answers can be found in the Bible, if you search them out. And that is what they are here for, to help you search them out.
