Jehovah’s witnesses: How important is it to believe as you do that Jesus died on a stake, and not a cross?

The Expert answers:

What really bothers me about this issue is how the Watchtower Society controls the “important information” Jehovah’s Witnesses are to study on this topic. They discourage their members from doing any independent research:

*** w67 6/1 p. 338 par. 12 Move Ahead with Jehovah’s Organization ***
But in Jehovah’s organization it is not necessary to spend a lot of time and energy in research, for there are brothers in the organization who are assigned to do that very thing, to help you who do not have so much time for this, these preparing the good material in The Watchtower and other publications of the Society. But you do not study enough? Take this suggestion: Often the very best and most beneficial studying you do is that done when you read a new Watchtower or Awake! Or a new book with the joy of getting the new truths and a fresh view.

I couldn’t find the following on the CD, but I’m quoting from my own copy of this publication:

“[W]ithin the few pages of a Watchtower article many texts on certain subjects are brought together. Truly it is a timesaver (p155, para. 2)…Private study of the magazine is essential. We should set aside sufficient time to digest its contents. (p156, para. 4)…If we have love for Jehovah and for the organization of his people we shall not be suspicious, but shall, as the Bible says, ‘believe all things,’ all the things that the Watchtower brings out (p156, para. 5)…Whereas the average individual would not have time or the resources for detailed research himself, The Watchtower is designed for that very purpose.” (pp158-9, para. 3) From Qualified to Be Ministers, 1967 ed.

The WTS says that JW’s don’t have the time or the resources for individual indepth research, but this is not necessary because these brothers have already done it for them, and all they need to do is digest the content of Watchtower publications.

Here are a few quotes from the Watchtower Society concerning the cross vs. Stake question, quoting authorities that they were using during this same time period:

*** g74 9/22 pp. 27-28 Did Jesus Die on a Cross? ***
Another reference work says: “The Greek word for cross, stau•ros′, properly signified a stake, an upright pole, or piece of paling, on which anything might be hung, or which might be used in impaling [fencing in] a piece of ground. . . . Even amongst the Romans the crux (from which our cross is derived) appears to have been originally an upright pole, and this always remained the more prominent part.”—The Imperial Bible Dictionary.

*** w50 11/1 pp. 426-427 Was Christ Hung on a Cross? ***
Such a single stake for impalement of a criminal was called crux simplex, and the method of nailing him to such an instrument of torture is illustrated by the Roman Catholic scholar, Justus Lipsius, of the 16th century. We present herewith a photographic copy of his illustration on page 647, column 2, of his book De Cruce Liber Primus. This is the manner in which Jesus was impaled.

*** w80 2/15 p. 30 Insight on the News ***
For example, the 16th-century Roman Catholic scholar Justus Lipsius illustrated impalement on an upright stake in his book “De Cruce Liber Primus.”

These quotes are also used in the JW “Reasoning” book, and Lipsius’ illustration was printed in the 1961 reference edition of the NWT.

Now, bearing in mind that the internet was not available for research during this period of time, please see what these quoted authorites REALLY said, which I posted in my answer here (Notice what words the WTS left out of the Imperial Bible Dictionary quote by the use of ellipses, and how they placed a period after the word “part” when this was not the last word in the sentence):;_ylt=Ap6xakuIphHwDOOB7IE4GTjty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20110420075358AA1cZbd

It is crystal clear that these quoted authorities were confirming the OPPOSITE of what the WTS was teaching: that Jesus died on a CROSS, not a stake.

WHY did the governing body of the Watchtower Society deliberately misquote these sources in an effort to deceive their members, and WHY did they discourage their members from doing independent research to discover this?

Maria asks…

How can people upload entire songs on youtube and not have it blocked?

The Expert answers:

The only reason they haven’t been blocked is because the content ID system hasn’t noticed them yet, or at least hasn’t taken action. Don’t think there’s any way to get around it – copyright is still copyright.
