I wouldn ever waste my time reading this book, I can just sum it up instinctively by reading the title and some of the thoughts contained in the book, and safely say that this man obviously loves wasting his time. You know, it's funny really, Jesus was the son of God, but he was murdered, they never believed in him, they hated him in fact! The weird thing is he was right, but most people then thought he was wrong! Sounds familiar doesn't it? People hate witnesses, they chastise, persecute, ridicule, and they never stop to think really what their actions might be telling them. As history tells us they play a big part in getting religious freedom for everyone due to their various court trials defending the preaching work. Jehovah's Witnesses do not hurt the community, they are not involved in crimes of hate towards anyone, they simply preach Bible Truths, and people want to sit their and write books about how harmful they are. It's just insanely hilarious, I thought cults liked to spend their time trying to milk money out of people and getting them to do harmful things to themselves and others, and you know what, I don't see either of those things going on with the community of Jehovah's Witnesses. So if you want to waste your time, go ahead and read it, but if you want to find actual truth, talk to an actual witness and observe the way in which they behave, then you tell me who is living life in the way it should be lived.
James Penton (university professor no less) aligns forces with Raymond Franz and any and all other apostates from the Christian congregation to speak smoothly to an "audience" bereft of understanding (bin) and accurate knowledge (epignosis). These men are singed with treachery in their hearts, due to their former course of wrongdoing as Jehovah's Witnesses. Consequently, they now spend much of their time defaming and decrying the so-called "evils" of the Watchtower Society and its surefire "predictions" of the past. Such men inevitably revert to the false teachings of apostate Christendom in the end as well. Beware of false teachers!-2 Tim.4:3,4. The end of them is their own destruction.-2 Pet.3:16
