JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES: ARMAGEDDON – AND AFTER THAT – WHAT?

Translated from the original by Chris Tsilikas
How Jehovah’s Witnesses imagine Armageddon
If a person who is not aware of the Society of Jehovah’s Witnesses “Watchtower” happens to open one of their leaflets, he/she will certainly be amazed by the way the Society deals with all spiritual issues. Because he/she will find out that they deal with them in a materialistic, garrulous way. Even God is not exempted from such attitude. For instance the Society takes all the anthropocentric expressions of the Holy Writ – that is, expressions that have human beings as their centre – literally, and as a result they are led to incredibly wrong, extraordinary conclusions which a lot of times reach the levels of comic.
That’s why, on the one hand, god is sometimes presented by the “Watchtower” as a simple creature with some supernatural powers, and on the other hand, his almighty is withdrawn and he is presented as a powerless creature that cannot give immediate solutions to human problems, and needs time to solve them.

CONNECTION OF THE “WATCHTOWER” AND THE “BEAST” OF THE UNITED NATIONS

The book of Watchtower "Revelation - Its Grand Climax At Hand!" p. 247: The United Nations is the "beast" of the Apocalypse!!!

When a few months earlier we started our blogspot, the Watchtower-stop, our basic norm and principle was to include only our own articles and not any other publications. Although this is true today as well, we all know that every norm has its exceptions. And we are about to welcome such an exception in our blogspot today. It’s an article written by an invigorated fighter of heresies, Mr. Efthimios Zoulianitis.

Mr Efthimios Zoulianitis is the publisher and editor of the monthly eight-page magazine The Fighting Orthodoxy”. In the pages of this magazine readers can find epistles to heretics and especially to “Jehovah’s Witnesses”.

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES AND CHARITY

Translated from the original by Chris Tsilikas

THE PREACHING IS FOR THE OTHER PEOPLE – NOT FOR US!
Once, in a village somewhere in Greece, during the Church Service the priest came to analyze the extract from the Gospel which referred to the importance of charity. After he had said everything he had to say he reached the point where the gospel says: “Anyone who has two cloaks, he should give the one to that person who has none”. “Well”, said the priest, “since we don’t wear cloaks today but coats, if we have two coats and we know that a poor person does not have any, we should give him one of our coats.”
His wife happened to be among the people who had gathered to hear his preaching. When she went back home while she was doing the housework, she heard a knock at the door. When she opened the door she came face to face with a miserable, poor old man, almost naked, shaking from the chilly weather, since it was winter, who was asking for any kind of help. The priest’s wife having her husband’s words still echoing in her mind, decided to suit her action to his word, so he dashed to their bedroom and brought one of the priest’s coat – the warmest and the most expensive – to the surprised beggar. A few days later when the priest looked for his coat and couldn’t find it asked his wife where it was. Then the priest’s wife, who had proudly kept her action for a surprise, filled with happiness narrated the incident with the beggar. Amazed as the priest was, he answered, “The preaching is for the other people, my wife, not for us!”
