The Active-Force-Led Organization vs. The Holy Spirit - Part 3
(Watchtower Confession - Not HOLY Spirit-Directed)

Video 108 uncovered the fact that for 65 years or more, the Watchtower has consistently ensured that every reference to the devil is with a capital D, the only exception being when it is quoting another source. Some felt it was a silly video.

Video 128 received a similar response for uncovering the fact that, for 65 years or more, the Watchtower has painstakingly ensured that every reference to the Holy Spirit was with common letters. Again, the only exception to that came when it was quoting another source.

Even persons who are not sympathetic to the organization suggested it was merely about rules of grammar. If you thought so, perish that thought. Any rule of grammar that would suggest the devil should be capitalized, would also require that the Holy Spirit is capitalized.

The first excuse to video 128 is that the devil is a person and the Holy Spirit is not. The Bible is not a person, nor is the Kingdom of God, but they are capitalized.

In this video I shall begin to demonstrate to you that there is much more to it than meets the eye.

But if there’s one thing you need to know about the Watchtower, it’s this: Nothing is printed without an agenda. Let’s read between the lines.

Watchtower Examination, The mighty evil spirit CONSISTENTLY deserves capital D. The common d can mean the demons and any other spirit under him.

A "Jehovah's Witness" Commenting on Video 129

 

That statement is not true because the use of the definite article makes the clear distinction when one speaks of THE devil. But that is even the smaller point. This person ridiculed the suggestion that the Watchtower has respect for Satan. Now here he is, telling me, not just that the mighty, evil devil DESERVES a capital D, but that he CONSISTENTLY deserves it.

 

An excellent Bible translation of the twentieth century is the American Standard Version.

New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures

 

The Translation the Watchtower describes as EXCELLENT, uses a capital D for the devil in most instances. The phrase, "the devil" appears 31 times in the excellent American Standard Version and is capitalized 2 out of those 31 times.

 

The phrase is capitalized in every single instance it appears in the New World Translation? Why? Was it because the excellent American Standard Version was wrong? No. This Jehovah’s Witness tells me it is because the devil deserves it. DESERVES!

 

What about the even mightier - infinitely mightier - and holy - not evil - Holy spirit?

 

Common h and s to the Holy Spirit, because capitalizing gives a wrong impression. I said that [the] NWT is justifiably biased against the trinity.
A "Jehovah's Witness" Commenting on Video 129

 

Did you see video 25B? It focused on the tampering of the Bible, by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, in an effort to disprove the Trinity. The organization cannot successfully refute the doctrine of the Trinity by using the Bible as it was. It had to invent its own Bible. You may also recall that it had to recall the book entitled, “Should You Believe in the Trinity?” Why? It is no longer in print. Why?  

 

Now here we have a Jehovah's Witness telling us, no in so many words, that they cannot afford to capitalize Holy Spirit as normal Bibles do, because it has a hidden agenda.

For those of you, who believe it is about rules of grammar, perish that thought. Ladies and gentlemen, please pay attention - keen attention:

 

An excellent Bible translation of the twentieth century is the American Standard Version. Besides being a great improvement over the King James Version it has the remarkable and commendable feature of rendering God’s name “Jehovah” at the 6,823 places where it occurs in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Watchtower - September 15, 1950 p315 par8

It described the American Standard Version as EXCELLENT. Can you get better than excellent? It was deemed excellent because it has the name Jehovah inserted in many more places than other Bibles. But as excellent as that was, the Watchtower proceeded to insert the name Jehovah in the New Testament where it NEVER occurred. But that is not all.

 

In all 90 instances where the phrase, "the Holy Spirit" appeared in the American Standard Version, a capital H and a capital S were used. The Watchtower has moved to change every single one of them to common letters? Why? Grammar?

 

Common h and s to the Holy Spirit, because capitalizing gives a wrong impression. I said that [the] NWT is justifiably biased against the trinity.
A "Jehovah's Witness" Commenting on Video 129

 

I know better than to judge an entire organization based on the words of one member - not to mention one member who really is not a member. So why am I giving so much prominence to the comments from Timothy Nyaga? To prove a point.

 

The point is: No Jehovah's Witness will speak favorably of the devil, or evil of the Holy Spirit - at least, none who is in his right mind. But, unwittingly, the devil is treated, in a strange way, with more fear and reverence than the Holy Spirit. Operative word - unwittingly.

 

This is the same person who was repulsed at my suggestion that the Watchtower shows respect to the devil - that very same person who unwittingly told me the devil DESERVES a capital D, and CONSISTENTLY so, but to give capital letters to the Holy Spirit would give the wrong impression.

 

Did you know then when I am writing, I use a capital H for Him or He whenever I am referring to the Father, Son or Holy Spirit? I have been cultured to treat God with that level of reverence. I have been cultured to use a common d when typing the devil. No one ever told me to use a capital H for ‘Him’ or ‘He’ when referring to God. But it is a certain level of respect and reverence for God that has been ingrained on my psyche. The opposite is going to be true of Jehovah’s Witnesses if they pay attention to how the Watchtower writes, and elects to write like that. No one ever told me to use a capital H for Him or He when referring to God. It is something I observed in my hymnal, in my Sabbath School lessons and in publications from my church.

 

That is a part of the objective that this scheme is contrived to achieve. A part of the objective is to reduce Jesus to a created being and relegate Him to the level of angels, and to reduce the Holy Spirit from a person to a thing, while the organization does something dangerous. Before I tell you what that dangerous thing is, there was another interesting comment from Timothy.

 

I asked is [the] KJV consistent in mixing both capital and common D? Why capital D in some few instances and not others?
A "Jehovah's Witness" Commenting on Video 129

 

The answer is, I do not know. But here is what I do know. While the King James Version and the American Standard Version both use a Capital D at Revelation 12:9 and Revelation 20:2, the Watchtower has changed EVERY OTHER instance to a capital D. It refuses to be as inconsistent as the King James Version and the American Standard Version; so what does it do? It changes all the common Ds to capital Ds. It ensures that the devil is consistently given that of respect. But here is the part of his comment that is significant.

 

I waited for your video and it was yet another babble.

 

In that video, I said NOTHING. I only quoted from the Scriptures. How Timothy could consider the Word of God as “just another babble” is rather interesting, and does not surprise me. You see, as I will explain in the next video. Not only has the Watchtower reduced the significance of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and THE BIBLE in the lives of Jehovah's Witnesses. The organization has put itself in their place. Am I getting preposterous now? Please remember the buzz word for Satan is “subtle”. Join me in the next video please, as I wrap up this series.
 

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
