Quotes From Watchtower Publications

Here are a few quotes from The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society publications, we have included these to give you some insight into the philosophy and thinking of The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society leaders and the teachings to which Jehovah's Witnesses are exposed. More will be added to the list as time permits and as they appear in The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society publications.


Watchtower 1/15/1976 p 47
ONE thing hard for many people today to understand is that there can be and there is only one true religion.

Watchtower 12/1/1981 p27
But Jehovah God has also provided his visible organization, his �faithful and discreet slave,� made up of spirit-anointed ones, to help Christians in all nations to understand and apply properly the Bible in their lives. Unless we are in touch with this channel of communication that God is using, we will not progress along the road to life, no matter how much Bible reading we do.

Watchtower 2/1/1996 p 6
What Must We Do to Be Saved? We must hold firmly to our Christian faith because, unlike what you may hear in some churches or on religious television programs, the Bible says we can fall away. It tells of Christians who abandoned �the straight path.� (2 Peter 2:1, 15) We thus need to �keep working out our own salvation with fear and trembling.��Philippians 2:12; 2 Peter 2:20.

Watchtower 12/1/1991 p19
To Hebrews, worship meant service. And this is what it means to true worshipers today. A very important, distinctive mark of true religion is that all who practice it share in the godly service of preaching "this good news of the kingdom . . . in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations." (Matthew 24:14; Acts 1:8; 5:42) What religion is known worldwide for its public witnessing to God�s Kingdom as mankind�s only hope?

Watchtower 10/1/1999 p 18
Through �the faithful and discreet slave,� Jehovah has also provided the timely journals The Watchtower and Awake! and other Bible-based publications. (Matthew 24:45) Diligently studying these will fortify us spiritually. Yes, we must take the time��buy out the opportune time��for personal study.

Watchtower 8/1/1982 p 20
This shows that Paul did not subscribe to the view held by many religionists today, namely, �Once saved, always saved.� After accepting Jesus as our savior and redeemer, and dedicating our lives to Jehovah God, we have only started on the way to salvation, not finished it. So Paul counsels us to �keep working out our own salvation with fear and trembling.� (Philippians 2:12) Why �keep working� and why with �fear and trembling,� if �once saved, always saved�? It is possible to fall away and impossible for certain of such ones to revive to repentance again, �because they impale the Son of God afresh.� And Jesus himself said that it is possible for someone to �take your crown.� He also said in his remarks on the �conclusion of the system of things�: �He that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved.� (Hebrews 6:4-6; Revelation 3:11; Matthew 24:3, 13) It is our current standing with God that counts, not what we once were, whether good or bad. (Ezekiel 33:12-16) That is why we must continue working at kingdom preaching, continue practicing right conduct, and do both with a healthy fear of falling short.

Watchtower 10/15/1969 p 627
In imitation of God�s faithful servants in the past, true Christians today use God�s name. Does the religion with which you associate do so? If it does not, then it could not be the true religion, for God said: �My people will know my name.� Not only would they know what the name is, but they would know it as a name glorified by reason of God�s own acts. Also the Bible says: �Everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved.�

Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses 1939 p 85
It should be expected that the Lord would have a means of communicating to his people on the earth, and he has clearly shown that the magazine called The Watch Tower is used for that purpose.

Watchtower 10/1/1994 p. 8
All who want to understand the Bible should appreciate that the "greatly diversified wisdom of God" can become known only through Jehovah's channel of communication, the faithful and discreet slave.

Watchtower 8/15/1981 p. 29
They say that it is sufficient to read the Bible exclusively, either alone or in small groups at home. But, strangely, through such 'Bible reading,' they have reverted right back to the apostate doctrines that commentaries by Christendom's clergy were teaching 100 years ago,

Watchtower, 12/1/1916 p. 377
Charles Taze Russell, thou hast, by the Lord, been crowned a king; and through the everlasting ages thy name shall be known amongst the people, and thy enemies shall come and worship at thy feet.
