Page 3: God's way of life is the best way. Like the psalmist, they pray: "Instruct me, O Jehovah, about your way. I shall walk in your way. I shall walk in your truth. Unify my heart to fear your name." - Psalm 86:11

Note: Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life!

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Note: Are you walking in the Holy Spirit?

Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.


Page 4: How pleasant it was to behold happy, well-dressed delegates streaming into auditoriums and stadiums to be taught by Jehovah!

Correction: True spirituality comes from the heart not outward appearance.

John 7:24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."

2 Cor. 5:12 For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart.


Page 5: Jehovah teaches his people how to walk in his ways. He does this through the Bible, "the faithful and discreet slave," and the holy spirit. (Matthew 24:45-47; Luke 4:1; 2 Timothy 3:16) What a privilege it is to be instructed by the Sovereign of the universe!

Correction: The "evil slave" Watchtower is not looking for the physical return of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:48-51 "But if that evil servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites.


Page 5: Exercising faith in Christ's ransom sacrifice requires that we come to an accurate knowledge of truth. It also involves dedicating our lives to Jehovah, symbolizing this by water baptism, and living in accord with the example that Jesus Christ provided. - 1 Peter 2:21.

Correction: Exercising faith in Christ is sincerely trusting Jesus for eternal life.

John 6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him (the Son) whom He (the Father) sent."


Page 6: Following this symposium was the talk "Let Jehovah Shape You for Honorable Use." Just as a potter shapes a clay vessel, so God shapes those who wish to serve him. (Romans 9:20, 21) He does this by providing counsel in his Word and through his organization.

Correction: Godly counsel is provided through the Holy Spirit.

John 14:26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."


Page 6: Consequently, the speaker announced the release of the colorful new 32-page brochure What Happens to Us When We Die? This brochure explains the origin of the teaching of the immortality of the soul and shows how the concept has become central to nearly all religions of the world today.

Note: The Watchtower believes that Jesus Christ is in the grave.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.


Page 6: Following a discussion of the daily text, the program continued with the talk "Helping People Get on the Way to Life." In carrying out this urgent work, it is important to have a positive attitude, recognizing that sharing the truth with others is both a privilege and a duty.

Correction: "Helping People Get on the Way to Life" is getting people to know Jesus Christ.

John 14:7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."


Page 6: In the first century C.E., most people rejected the Word of God. Despite opposition, however, there were those 'who were rightly disposed for everlasting life and became believers.' (Acts 13:48, 50; 14:1-5) The situation is similar today.

Note: The Watchtower has rejected the Word of God since it does not preach Jesus Christ.

Acts 13:38-39 "Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses."


Page 6: The talk entitled "Teaching Disciples All That Christ Commanded" focused on the importance of becoming skillful in our ministry.

Correction: True Christians will love one another as Jesus Christ commanded.

John 13:34 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another."

John 15:12 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."

John 15:17 "These things I command you, that you love one another."

Romans 13:8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.


Page 7: God's purpose to have obedient humans serve him forever on earth will be fulfilled. How fitting it is, then, that we focus our thinking, plans, and hopes on serving Jehovah with eternity in view!

Note: True Christians serve Jesus Christ.

Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.


Page 9: The program began with an exciting symposium of three talks, focusing on Ezekiel's temple vision. This vision has great meaning for God's people today, since it relates to pure worship in our time. A key to understanding the vision is this: Jehovah's great spiritual temple represents his arrangement for pure worship.

Correction: The key to understanding the vision is the book of Revelation.

Ezekiel 43:7 And He said to me, "Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. No more shall the house of Israel defile My holy name, they nor their kings, by their harlotry or with the carcasses of their kings on their high places."

Revelation 21:22-24 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.


Page 9: As the features of the vision were discussed, listeners pondered their activity in support of the work done by loving overseers of the anointed remnant and by the prospective members of the chieftain class.

Correction: "Chieftain class" does not exist in the Word of God.

Matthew 20:25-28 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."


Page 9: Later in the morning, there was a colorful Bible drama with a cast of costumed participants. The drama was entitled "Families - Make Daily Bible Reading Your Way of Life!"

Note: Call the Watchtower on its bluff by making daily Bible reading your way of life!


Page 9: The resolution concluded with these stirring words: "We are convinced that living by Scriptural principles, counsel, and admonition makes for the best way of life today and lays a fine foundation for the future, so that we may get a firm hold on the real life. Above all, we make this resolution because we love Jehovah God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength!" All in attendance affirmed their agreement with a resounding aye!

Correction: To be loved by the Father, a person must first be in love with the Son.

John 14:21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."

Ephesians 6:24 Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.


Page 10: In the book of Revelation, the apostle John describes those around God's heavenly throne as having golden bowls full of incense. "And," says the inspired account, "the incense means the prayers of the holy ones." (Revelation 5:8)

Note: The Father and the Son are being worshipped together in heaven.

Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: "Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!"


Page 11: Suppose we lack the wisdom needed to deal with a trial. Perhaps we are not sure that a particular Bible prophecy is now being fulfilled. Instead of allowing this to destabilize us spiritually, let us pray for wisdom. (Galatians 5:7, 8; James 1:5-8)

Correction: We are to pray for wisdom to endure temptation.

James 1:12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Note: We should not be quick to speculate on unfulfilled Biblical prophecies.

2 Peter 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,


Page 11: It is necessary for us to engage in faith-building study of the Scriptures with the aid of publications provided through "the faithful and discreet slave."

Correction: True faith-building comes from serving others in the love of God.

Jude 1:20-23 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.


Page 11: Fellow believers can well pray that such ones rekindle or bolster their faith in the Scriptural evidence that Christ's presence began in 1914 when Jehovah installed him as heavenly King and he is ruling in the midst of his enemies. (Psalm 110:1, 2; Matthew 24:3)

Correction: The presence of Christ began at Pentecost.

Matthew 28:20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

Acts 2:1-4 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Note: The date 1914 is based on the bogus date of 607 B.C.E. for the destruction of Jerusalem.


Page 11: Indeed, may all who love Jehovah seek first the Kingdom and his righteousness and have the greatest possible share in preaching the good news before the end comes.

Note: Righteousness, peace, and joy comes from the Holy Spirit.

Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.


Page 11: King David offered such a prayer when he and the people of Israel contributed toward the construction of Jehovah's temple. David prayed: "Blessed may you be, O Jehovah the God of Israel our father, from time indefinite even to time indefinite.

Note: The Watchtower missed Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.


Page 11: Yours, O Jehovah, are the greatness and the mightiness and the beauty and the excellency and the dignity; for everything in the heavens and in the earth is yours.

Note: The Watchtower missed Jesus Christ.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth."


Page 11: Yours is the kingdom, O Jehovah, the One also lifting yourself up as head over all.

Note: The Watchtower missed Jesus Christ.

Revelation 1:9 I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.


Page 11: The riches and the glory are on account of you, and you are dominating everything; and in your hand is ability to make great and to give strength to all.

Note: The Watchtower missed Jesus Christ.

Colossians 1:16-17 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.


Pages 11-12: And now, O our God, we are thanking you and praising your beauteous name.

Note: The Watchtower missed Jesus Christ.

Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.


Page 13: "Father, let your name be sanctified." Addressing Jehovah as Father is a special privilege of his dedicated servants.

Note: Only true Christians call on God as Father.

Galatians 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"


Page 13: Our prayers should reflect our concern about the sanctification of Jehovah's name because we long to see it cleared of all the reproach that has been heaped upon it. Yes, we want Jehovah's name to be set apart and held as holy, or sacred.

Note: The Watchtower missed Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Page 13: "Let your kingdom come." The Kingdom is the rulership of Jehovah expressed through the heavenly Messianic government in the hands of his Son and Jesus' associated "holy ones."

Note: True Christians are already in the spiritual kingdom of God.

Colossians 1:13-14 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Correction: The material kingdom of God will occur at the physical return of Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:


Page 15: If we pray for opportunities to help others to get on the path to everlasting life, we need to keep good records of interested ones and be willing to fit the conducting of home Bible studies into our schedule.

Correction: True Christians don't keep detailed records of people.

Acts 15:28-29 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.
