Description

Since the time of Charles Taze Russell the publications of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society - the parent organization of Jehovah's Witnesses - have stated publicly that they believe their understanding of God's Word to superior to the understanding of any and all other religious groups. Russell, and subsequently the witnesses have consistently alleged that their superior prophetic insight derives from direct divine revelation from Jehovah God. In their view, Jehovah communicates exclusively with the small remnant of older Witnesses - known collectively as the Faithful and Discreet Slave (class), of Matthew 24:45. In The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree, Bishop Johnson - a former Jehovah's witness of twenty-three years - argues that the Society's doctrines are NOT the product of divine revelation, but are consistent with similar doctrines taught by other Adventist groups, and might have actually been borrowed from Adventist sources known to Russell.show more
