WATCHTOWER responds to a letter about their UN affiliation


It is recorded history that the Watchtower was in bed with the United Nations as an NGO for over a decade until it was exposed by a major British newspaper the Guardian on the 10th October 2001. Following this revelation there was a major outbreak of complaints from Jehovah's Witnesses from around the world that ultimately led to the Warchtower's departure from it's position as an NGO for the Watchtower. In recent years though it has become apparent that the Watchtower continues to support and promote UN objectives and agendas in many ways one of which is through their main website jw.org with articles that are favourable towards that organization. One of these articles that has featured on the front page of their website many times over the past 5 years is the article

"Protect Yourself From Misinformation"


One of our readers noticed that too and wrote a letter asking why the Watchtower is so kin in promoting the United Nations so often and so favourably. To their surprise they received a responce from the Watchtower to which I have the permission to present to you below. As the

person is a PIMO with family still in the Witnesses they have asked me not to reveal their identity which i have to respect.

The letter from the Watchtower had this to say:

This is in reply to your letter of May 11, 2021, wherein you ask why we quote information from United Nations officials and others in our recent website article, “Protect Yourself From Misinformation.

This is part of the article that has been rotated on the front page of jw.org for over 5 years “Protect Yourself From Misinformation.”

Today, you have access to more information than ever, including the kind that can help you stay safe and healthy. But in your search, you need to beware of misinformation, such as: Misleading news, False reports & Conspiracy theories. For example, during the COVID pandemic the secretary-general of the United Nations warned of a dangerous epidemic of misinformation. “Harmful health advice and snake-oil solutions are proliferating,” he stated. “Falsehoods are filling the airwaves. Wild conspiracy theories are infecting the Internet. Hatred is going viral, stigmatizing and vilifying people and groups.” Of course, misinformation is not new. However, the Bible foretold that in our day, “wicked men and impostors [would] advance from bad to worse, misleading and being misled.” (2 Timothy 3:1, 13) And the Internet now allows us to receive—and unintentionally spread—false news more easily and quickly than ever. As a result, our email, social media, and news feeds can become filled with distorted facts and half-truths. How can you protect yourself from misleading information and conspiracy theories?

In other words, the Watchtower presents the secretary of the United Nations as the correct source of information an everybody else that dared to raise their voice during the SCAM-demic is called names like the Watchtower is calling names anyone who doesn’t agree with them, like apostates. It is quite clear that the Watchtower during the SCAM-demic was in cahoots with the legacy media and the UN subscribed directive for scaring the world’s population into submission and self-imposed lockdowns.

The letter from the Watchtower continues:

While we do quote from various secular sources to document specific statistical information, this does not mean that we endorse or subscribe to their tenets, goals, or aims. For example, we often quote The Catholic Encyclopedia, The Jewish Encyclopedia, and other religious organizations of “Babylon the Great” to document their position or beliefs. (Revelation 17:5; 18:2) This in no way is an endorsement of the religious tenets of such organizations.

Last time I checked the jw.org the Catholic Encyclopedia is quoted in a couple of places in some Watchtowers magazines in 1965, 70 years ago!!! You can not possibly compare these references with an article that is favourable towards United Nations and has been appearing on their front page continually the past 5 years. Also the article doesn't just quote the President of the United Nations it actively sides with him as the source of truthful information! The letter continues:

Furthermore, as a reputable journal, Awake! often quotes official reports, authoritative individuals, or organizations without endorsing their activities. The apostle Paul even quoted certain Greek “poets” and a Cretan “prophet.” (Acts 17:28; Titus 1:12) We are not to assume from this that, just because Paul quoted from non-Christian poets, he was in harmony with everything that they wrote. He merely chose a specific portion of their writings to make a particular point. Likewise, when we quote from various publications, we assume that the majority of our readers understand that this is not necessarily indicating that we endorse the entire publication.

You can not possibly compare some ancient Greek poets with an organization like the United Nations that the Watchtower for over 70 years has called the "beast of Revelation"! Shouldn't any statements coming out of the mouth of that beast be classed as harmful propaganda and nothing else? Wasn't the Watchtower itself that has classed through its magazines any utterance that comes out of the mouth of the United Nations as "demonic expressions like frogs " that lead all kings to the battle of Armageddon? Apparently this is all forgotten now and they are happy to quote this propaganda as authoritive reports that need to be trusted and followed. The letter continues:

Since the United Nations represents an international viewpoint on world events or distress, we use it at times to provide an international statistic or opinion. Our publications are circulated in all parts of the world. Therefore, the statistics of an international organization may at times be viewed as more authoritative by our millions of readers earth wide than would such information from a U.S. source, for example.

You can see how blinded they have become from that precious international power that the "beast of Revelation " exerts worldwide and they are so drawn to quote and promote its statements and statistics if only to be showered with gifts, allowances and handouts from the United Nations. They think this duplicitous behaviour is legitimate in the eyes of God. What a blasphemy! Their letter continues:

In the article “The Christian View of the United Nations,” on page 7 of the October 1, 1995, issue of The Watchtower, the point is made that the United Nations organization exists as another aspect of human governments that presently serve their purpose by God’s permission but will all eventually meet the same fate when God’s Kingdom takes over earth’s rule. (Daniel 2:44) Nevertheless, like other human governments, the United Nations does provide some human services that are beneficial to mankind. There is a need to see all human governments within the proper balance as reflected at Romans 13:1-7. In this regard, we refer you to the article, “What Do Christians Owe the Government?,” from the February 8, 1977, issue of Awake!, pages 27 and 28.

They quote an article from 1995 when they were already in bed with the United Nations as an NGO therefore their stance had to be altered in their magazines to reflect that new position. You can also see that their new go to verses are Romans 13:1-7 that they will and have already use to go to bed with all other supranational organizations apaet from the United Nations like W.H.O.(=World Health Organization) especially during the SCAM-demic and also governments around the world. Of course they have to do that in order to preserve perks, access to funding and all their tax free benefits that comes with such a position. Let's see what these verses in Romans 13:1-7 say though:

Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. 2 Therefore, whoever opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will bring judgment against themselves. 3 For those rulers are an object of fear, not to the good deed, but to the bad. Do you want to be free of fear of the authority? Keep doing good, and you will have praise from it; 4 for it is God’s minister to you for your good. But if you are doing what is bad, be in fear, for it is not without purpose that it bears the sword. It is God’s minister, an avenger to express wrath against the one practicing what is bad. 5 There is therefore compelling reason for you to be in subjection, not only on account of that wrath but also on account of your conscience. 6 That is why you are also paying taxes; for they are God’s public servants constantly serving this very purpose. 7 Render to all their dues: to the one who calls for the tax, the tax; to the one who calls for the tribute, the tribute; to the one who calls for fear, such fear; to the one who calls for honor, such honor

And this ladies and gentlemen are the verses they will use to make you accept everything that's coming down the line from the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the future New World Order. They will sell it to you as "obeying the higher authorities" at all costs. But surprisingly these verses do not give governments a free pass to impose on people anything they like because the Watchtower clearly and conveniently ignores Jesus command in Mark 12:17:

Pay back Caesar’s things to Caesar, but God’s things to God.”

Yes there comes a point that the individual and not an organization decides when the government or the United Nations or any other goverment has crossed that fine line, and rest assured that fine line been crossed along time ago especially in the West. Our governments hate us and they will do anything to destroy our way of life in order to usher in their totalitarian wet dream.

Spiritual prostitutes like the Watchtower just help them do it faster and more efficiently and they do it by using verses from the Word of God!
