So some Jehovah's Witnesses hung out with me today. You know I used to really write these people off, but instead today I just felt a lot of pain for them to be so blindly following a set of beliefs that... to be honest is pretty paper thin. Anyways the funny part is somehow without any sort of deception or guile they agreed that they would like to engage the world's governments in a massive coup d'état. The absurdity of what they were telling me seemed to be oblivious to them (hey all I was trying to make the point was that we should engage our current government, somehow they decided that was a better idea and instead we should take over). Using their singular Bible translation I couldn't help but think of the middle age church that read expressly from the latin vulgate and drew a variety of false beliefs just due to bad translation. Not that I know greek or anything but I can at least cross reference a few translations and even check a concordance to see if a coup is a good idea or not. Anyways I don't mean to make light, because really the whole time I had this horrible sinking feeling in my stomach, a compassion for them, so close, yet so far.|

The above JW poster is an "angel of light" like Satan. JWs are NOT PERMITTED to believe a single thing NOT TAUGHT by the WatchTower Society, so why would a JW be using multiple translations to "study the Bible". Answer: They do so solely to find those stray verses in other translation which support their own NEW WORLD MISTRANSLATION.

I think your way off base calling JW's Angel's of Light like Satan. They are inarguably misled and I do not doubt there is spiritual warfare unseen that is involved, but humans created and loved by God they are, and it no doubt pains Jesus to see them so close and yet so far.
Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be my people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.
Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward.
