The Watchtower Invites You To Examine The Truth

 Watchtower July 1, 1979, p. 25
"However, all person who have love for the truth are invited to examine this claim that Jehovah's Witnesses really do have the truth. In doing so, they should imitate what those persons in the first century did who listened to the preaching of the apostles: They received the word with the great eagerness of mind, carefully examining the Scriptures daily as to whether these things were so."
 The Watchtower of August 1, 1978, page 12,
"Over the years, representatives of different churches have published many books and brochures for the purpose of "exposing" Jehovah's Witnesses as heretics .... Naturally, we are not afraid of this kind of publicity, because we know that it serves to awaken the curiosity of many honest persons."

"Consequently, is it unchristian today to offer Bible-based comments about anothers religion? The scriptural answer must be No. True, criticism that reveals faults in the teachings or practices of someone's religion might at first seem severe. Yet, how should one react? Not like those who became violently enraged over Stephen's criticism. Rather, note the fine reaction of some Athenians who heard Paul's comments. They accept the Bible truth and became believers, to their eternal benefit. Compare Acts 17:11, 12. Far from being rejected as unchristian then, criticism based on God's word should be carefully considered, for it can bring real benefits".

"If you were on trial in a court of law, would it be fair if only your opponent was allowed to present evidence? No, you would surely want the court to hear your side of the matter .... Reasonable persons agree that the only fair method is to examine the evidence on both sides, both for and against a disputed theory. That is how one arrives at the truth."
 The Truth That Leads To Eternal Life, 1968, p. 13
"We need to examine, not only what we personally believe, but also what is taught by any religious organization with which we may be associated. Are its teachings in full harmony with Gods Word, or are they based on the traditions of men? If we are lovers of the truth, there is nothing to fear from such an examination. It should be the sincere desire of every one of us to learn what Gods will is for us, and then to do it." John 8:32
 Watchtower, July 1, 1968, p. 389
If a religion is not in accord with what the Bible teaches, then it is not in harmony with truth. it is not the true religion. (Rom. 3:4) You have nothing to fear in examining your beliefs by the standard of Gods Word, for if you have the true religion you can only be reassured. And if what you believe is not in keeping with the Bible, then you should welcome the truth, because it leads to eternal life. John 17:3
