Thanks for highlighting this very important information Dean. I’ve thought of this much the same way…especially in the last few years since they’ve put so much emphasis on JW dot org. It’s like over the top.Go to the JW app and type in ‘Organisation’ and see how many times it comes up (Zero)
Now type in ‘People’ and see how many times that comes up. (2,273)
An organisation is dead. It doesn’t live it doesn’t breath it doesn’t speak it doesn’t think.
People live, breath, speak, think.
Unfortunately due to word witchcraft Gods people have been tricked and do not understand the difference between being ‘Organised’ and an ‘Organisation’, or the term ‘Lawful’ and ‘Legal’ for that matter. The false prophets at Warwick know fully what they are doing. They craftily interchange the term being organised (acceptable) with organisation (deception) and the listener does not notice or understand the significance. These are completely different things.
You can’t do a single thing if you are not organised. Try baking a cake for instance. But do you need to set up an organisation to bake a cake? No. Do you need to be organised? Yes. Arrange with some friends to go out for a meal. Can you do that successfully without being organised? No impossible. But do you need to set up a limited company or corporation (Organisation) to go out with friends? No you don’t. To be organised is a verb. It’s a doing thing by living breathing things (People) An ‘Organisation’ is a Proper Noun. A completely dead thing, with no life in it.
But is this of any real importance? You bet it is.
The Insight on the Scriptures under Idol, Idolatry states this
An idol is an image, a representation of anything, or a symbol that is an object of passionate devotion, whether material or imagined. Generally speaking, idolatry is the veneration, love, worship, or adoration of an idol. It is usually practiced toward a real or supposed higher power, whether such power is believed to have animate existence (as a human, an animal, or an organization) or is inanimate (as a force or lifeless object of nature). Idolatry generally involves some form, ceremony, or ritual.
It is impossible to worship ‘I’m backing a cake,’ but it is very easy to worship the cake. Any worship other than Jehovah and to some degree his son is Idolatry.
At Habakkuk 2:18-20 Jehovah tells us Of what benefit is a carved image When its maker has carved it? Of what benefit is a metal statue and a teacher of lies, Even though its maker trusts in it, Making worthless gods that are speechless? 19 Woe to the one who says to a piece of wood, “Awake!” Or to a speechless stone, “Wake up! Instruct us!” Look! It is overlaid in gold and silver, And there is no breath at all within it. 20 But Jehovah is in his holy temple. Be silent before him, all the earth!’”
Let’s put it to the test then past and present.
The WT described Noah just prior to the flood as being Gods early ‘Organisation.’ Was that so? Did Noah need to set up a Ltd company to build the Ark? Did he have shareholders? Did he need a logo? Did he need a computer office to order all the tools and equipment? Absurd Yes?
How did the animals go into the ark? In two’s Yes? So even the animas were organised. Were they part of Gods ‘Organisation’ then? Absurd
Fast forward to the Israelites at Mount Sinai and they received the 10 commandments the first commandments of the ‘Law covenant’ the law was between God and man, and man and man. Always alive and living. Was the Law covenant between God and a stone? Between man and a piece of wood. But what did the Israelites do the moment Moses went up the mountain to get the living law covenant. They…….drum roll please…….Made what? A golden calf. Was it alive? Did it breath? Could it speak? Jehovah was furious. They even had the audacity to say it was a festival to Jehovah.
Outside every single Bethel complex is a big statue of the Blue JW.ORG some are really ornate and impressive https://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witn...tion/britain-photo-gallery-sep-2016-feb-2017/

They say again and again ‘be Loyal’ to Jehovah’s dead Golden Calf…..Sorry I meant to say Show Loyalty to Jehovah’s dead ‘Organisation.’ Go up to the lovely big blue statue of JW.ORG and ask it a question and see what response you get. Sing to it and see if it listens? Pray to it and see if it answers? If you get no response try doing the same with the walls, computers, buildings, the tiles, the pictures, the carpets, the share certificates, computer screens….etc….etc…. So can someone tell me how can be Loyal to a dead thing that gives me nothing back? Oh yes....
Isaiah 44:17-20 But the rest of it he makes into a god, into his carved image. He bows down to it and worships it. He prays to it and says: “Save me, for you are my god.”18 They know nothing, they understand nothing, Because their eyes are sealed shut and they cannot see, And their heart has no insight. 19 No one reflects in his heart Or has knowledge or understanding, saying: “Half of it I burned up in a fire, And on its coals I baked bread and roasted meat to eat. Should I, then, make the rest of it into a detestable thing? Should I worship a block of wood from a tree?” 20 He feeds on ashes. His own deluded heart has led him astray. He cannot save himself, nor does he say: “Is there not a lie in my right hand?”
Isaiah 42:17 They will be turned back and will be utterly put to shame, Those who trust in carved images, Those who say to metal statues: “You are our gods.”
Isaih 45:20 Gather together and come. Approach together, you escapees from the nations. They know nothing, those who carry around carved images And pray to a god that cannot save them.
All of Jehovah’s Witnesses are being deceived into idolatry by following a false god called jw.org A festival to Jehovah and giving homage to the high Priests of the GB. Jehovah is about to wipe the entire monstrosity of the face of the earth.
Next time you hear the wizards and warlocks from Warwick use their word craft say something like…… 'We know know Jehovah's people were organised (verb) when they left Egypt; or how the early congregations were organised (verb); so to today we copy the pattern of the Jehovahs’s early Organisation (Switch). How can anyone deny Jehovah is not using his Organisation (the switch to an idolatrous Proper Noun) today……Therefore we must be Loyal to his Organisation. (pure idolatry) Our Organisation prints more......bla… bla bla....(now no mention of Jehovah) you will hopefully spot the allegiance you have just given to the modern day golden calf.
However in the 2nd & 3rd Chapters of Revelation Jesus speaks to the seven congregations in the province of Asia. Congregations are People = Alive, Living, Breathing collectively. The congregations represent the anointed Christians prior to any sealing in the Lords day when Jesus returns. All but 2 of the seven congregations receive very heavy council if not judgment. So yes, Jehovah and Jesus Christ do have a living congregation today. Also for a certainty he has been using the people who carry his name Jehovah’s Witnesses to accomplish his purpose, that in itself is an entirely different topic.
Speaking about the Israelites at Mount Sinai made me think how they got tired of waiting on Moses to come back down so they made the lifeless golden calf. In a similar way, during our modern times, the WT got tired of waiting on the “end” to come and trying to explain to the ”sheep” things like overlapping generations and the rest of their nonsense. So they built this lifeless image, jw dot org. to appease the masses and at the same time receive their loyalty and admiration even more now than ever. They absolutely venerate them/ it. For example, whenever I would bring up Jesus words from the Bible, especially if contrary to WT they took the GB’s words over what Jesus said. Unbelievable!!
So, yes they’ve definitely made an idol in place of Jehovah. The explanation you gave about an organization is very interesting and something we should not take lightly. I’ve given my thoughts on this in this thread as well as others.
I also know that when I was baptized in 1982 I never intended nor did I for once think it was to an organization. My dedication was to Jehovah and no one else. Just as it is written:
“You must not bow down to another god, for Jehovah is known for requiring EXCLUSIVE DEVOTION.
Yes, he is a God who requires EXCLUSIVE DEVOTION.” ( Exodus 34:14 )
How much plainer can He be?
