Not From Men

Some may try to defend or apologize for the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses claiming that their leaders, their Governing Body, are imperfect and just men. Therefore, they of course make mistakes and errors.

However, does the organization present the instructions and directives of their leaders in such a light? Does the beliefs and doctrine of Jehovah's Witnesses come from failable men? Not according to their teachings and literature.

The September 15, 2010 Watchtower on page 13, paragraph 8 makes the following statements:

"The Governing Body publishes spiritually encouraging literature in many languages. This spiritual food is based on God's Word. Thus, what is taught is not from men but from Jehovah."

Not from men but from Jehovah is exactly how the organization has persistently and consistently presented its teaching and doctrine which is inclusive of their failed predictions, and flip-flops in beliefs.

Excusing them or their errors, false prophesying and outright lies as being the product of imperfect men does not stand up against what the organization to this day continues to indoctrinate to its members. Their beliefs and understanding comes from Jehovah, not from men.
