This week we started the six week section on Jehovah’s Witnesses. We looked at the origin of the organization now called The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. Actually there are about a dozen corporations that direct the various efforts of Jehovah’s Witnesses. But the key is to help our Jehovah’s Witness freind or family member see that this organization is not what it claims to be. We will talk more about this next week.
