  1. Our pastor has been taking us through, over the past number of months, a lot of the major religions in the world with the point to be able to educate us on what they believe, WHY they believe it, and what faux pas we can avoid if we are to relate and reach them. He included a section on the JW’s and we’re working through LDS at the moment.

    One thing about both JW’s and LDS is that there is this hierarchy where, the deeper you go into the movement, the more secrets get revealed and the more secrets you are asked to keep. It’s rather interesting, really. At the surface level, they look really good… that tract is not one, by the sounds of it, I’d be embarassed to support most of the concepts. But it’s that “hook” that gets you in that really starts bothering me. And the illogic you have pointed out on the whole “Jehovah” thing is a symptom, minor one, of some of the head-warping that goes on in the JW organization.
