"Do Not Put Your Trust in...the Sons of Earthling Man"

Welcome Brothers and Sisters

As Jehovah's Witnesses, we must be loyal to Jehovah God and not man. "Do not put your trust in nobles, nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs. His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish. Happy is the one who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Jehovah his God...Jehovah is opening the eyes of the blind ones; Jehovah is raising up the ones bowed down; Jehovah is loving the righteous ones."-Ps. 146:3-5,8

As the Supreme Ruler of the Universe and the Creator, Jehovah God deserves our full devotion - He expects it of us. (Rev. 4:11; Ex. 20:4-6; 34:14; Deut. 4:24) When men make the statement that they deserve our full trust, we have every reason to not trust that. (Romans 3:4) Even worse, when men make the statement that we can only be saved by trusting them alone we must reject them. Remember: Jehovah's Word says, "Do not put your trust in nobles, nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs."

When we put our full trust in men we are really rejecting Jehovah God. "This is what Jehovah has said: 'Cursed is the able-bodied man who puts his trust in earthling man and actually makes flesh his arm, and whose heart turns away from Jehovah himself. And he will certainly become like a solitary tree in the desert plain and will not see when good comes; but he must reside in parched places in the wilderness, in a salt country that is not inhabited." (Jer. 17:5-6) Jehovah has provided a man, the Son of Man, that we can look to for salvation. (Acts 4:12) The devotion that many of our misled brothers and sisters give to the Governing Body should actually go to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and, more importantly, our great God, Jehovah.

Why can we trust Jehovah and Jesus? We are told, "The name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous runs and is given protection." "Jehovah [is] a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving-kindness and truth." Jesus Christ said, "Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart, and you will find refreshment for your souls. For my yoke is kindly and my load is light." "The Lamb...will shepherd them, and will guide them to fountains of waters of life."-Prov. 18:10; Ex. 34:6; Matt. 11:28-30; Rev. 7:17

We can also trust the Bible. "Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth," Jesus said. "All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial." (John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16) So, we can trust Jehovah, Jesus, and the Bible. There is no one else on the earth that deserves our trust, not even the Governing Body. Remember, ones who are of the "faithful and discreet slave" can become the "evil slave." (Matt. 24:45-51) Keeping that in mind, we must constantly check to see if what we are being fed is good food or not. (Acts 17:11) If we find something there that doesn't quite fit with the Bible yet we find it hard to reject we need to "keep testing whether [we] are in the faith, keep proving what [we ourselves] are."-2 Cor. 13:5

On this site you will find such information as:

Is the Watchtower still associated with the United Nations?

Who Really Is the Man of Lawlessnes?

What is the Truth About the Year 1914?

What Did the Society Say Regarding 1975?

Plus, there is more information on here that you may find enlightening concerning the Watchtower, Bible and Tract Society. I want it to be known before you enter this site that I am in no way trying to make people believe that Jehovah's Witnesses are wrong or even that there is no "faithful and discreet slave". All I want to accomplish is for people to see that the Governing Body gone beyond their assignment and lifted themselves up over us all. Yes, they have tried to take the place of Jehovah God.


Praise Jehovah: Scripture of the Week!

"Praise Jah, you people, For it is good to make melody to our God; For it is pleasant—praise is fitting. Jehovah is building Jerusalem; The dispersed ones of Israel he brings together. He is healing the brokenhearted ones, And is binding up their painful spots. He is counting the number of the stars; All of them he calls by their names. Our Lord is great and is abundant in power; His understanding is beyond recounting."
-Psalm 147:1-5, New World Translation
