AWAKEN                                          ISSUE #1


By: RICH GRIESE                   

Below is a list of questions that I had sent to the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society Governing Body, in April 1991.  I have yet to receive a response. 

Question #1 Can individuals read & understand the Bible alone, or do they need an organization and it's publications to do so?

Question #2 Can Jehovah's Witness hold and discuss openly with other Jehovah's Witnesses opinions that differ from orthodox Watch Tower doctrine?  Is there any valid reason for a person to decide that he does not wish to belong to the Jehovah's Witnesses?

Question #3 What is God's proper name "Yahweh" or "Jehovah"?  if "Yahweh" is more proper, is it showing the proper respect to "Yahweh" to say that because "Jehovah" is more commonly used it does not matter how you pronounce the name?  And, should an religion that puts so much emphasis on the name of God use any other version than the proper pronunciation?

Question #4 Did President Fred Franz get an Rhodes Scholarship offer from the Rhodes Scholarship organization?  If not, why did he testify under oath that he was offered one, and why was this information published in Watch Tower publications?

Question #5 Did the Watch Tower and the Governing Body currently teach that Armageddon will come before the close of the twentieth century according to information published in the January 1, 1989 Watch Tower? Also, why were the dates in the article changed to not be specific to the twentieth century when it was published in the bound form at the end of the year?

Question #6 Did the Watch Tower and the Governing body believe and publish information that Jesus's 1000 year millenial reign would take place in 1975?

Question #7 Did the Watch Tower and the Governing Body believe that in or around 1925 there would be an awakening of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, and others mentioned in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews, and that there would be an end to death at that time?

Question #8 Did the Watch Tower and the Governing Body believe that the year 1914 was the beginning of the Armageddon of the Scriptures?

Question #9 Is any portion of the Watch Tower or the Governing Body to be considered a prophet of God, or the voice of God?  Do the Governing Body or its associated corporations have better information from God or have a more direct channel to or from God's thoughts than others? If this is true why has God changed his opinion, based on Watchtower teachings, so many times in Watch Tower history?

Question #10 Why were the Jehovah's Witnesses in Mexico at one time told to not use Bibles, not hold prayers, not sing religious songs, and deny that they were part of a religious group, but were simply part of a "Cultural" group even though religious groups were not in any way prohibited by the Mexican government at the time?  Did it have anything to do with the Watch Tower or the Governing Body's desire to own property in Mexico, which was prohibited under Mexican law, rather than be known as a religion?

Question #11 Was Beth-Sarim, the Mansion owned and operated by the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society in San Diego and used by Joe Rutherford in the 1920's built as a residence for Enoch and other holy men from the Bible when they were expected to rise from the dead in 1925 by the Watch Tower?

Rich Griese         --------------------------------------------

Mr. Griese has researched the Watchtower's teachings. In future issues of AWAKEN, we will bring you the results of his findings. Please also download WAKEUP9.TXT from CRS BBS at (416)629-7020, for detailed facts about the Watchtower's failed predictions for 1975.

Please share the info found in these issues of AWAKEN with other members of the faith to which you belong. Consider using this info within publications issued to members of your faith. One example is to use this info within Church bulletins. People need to become informed about the Watchtower and it's teachings. Why ? Jehovah's Witnesses go door to door preaching whatever the Watchtower has told them to preach. The are trained weekly to respond to any and all objections to their preaching. They are told by the Watchtower that the Watchtower is the only TRUTH and that the Watchtower is the only TRUE religion. They are told by the Watchtower that all other faiths, teach false teachings because all other faiths are agents of SATAN. They have no qualms attacking any and all aspects your belief system, when they come on their un-asked for visits. They are trained to SELL you on the Watchtower's teachings, just as they themselves had been SOLD.

By becoming informed about the Jehovah's Witnesses, one will be better prepared to decide whether one should get invloved with this group.
