Page 6: If he claims to have a soul in him that does not die, he is contradicting God's Word that plainly states: "The soul that is sinning-it itself will die." (Ezekiel 18:4)
Note: The Watchtower did not quote the entire verse.
Ezekiel 18:4 "Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father As well as the soul of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die." (or separated from God)
Correction: The new light of the New Testament quotes the souls of dead people.
Revelation 6:9-10 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
Page 7: Although God did use dreams in the past to reveal prophetic events and give instructions while his written Word was being produced, he has no need to do so today.
Correction: God will use dreams in the last days.
Acts 2:17-20 'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: blood and fire and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.' (Joel 2:28-32)
Page 12: We must note, however, that there was also a spiritual overtone to the entire event. Abraham somehow discerned that these visitors were messengers from Jehovah. This is indicated by his addressing them with the words: "Jehovah, if, now, I have found favor in your eyes, please do not pass by your servant." (Genesis 18:3; compare Exodus 33:20)
Note: Through careful Bible study, Jesus Christ is declared Jehovah.
John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
Genesis 18:1 Then the LORD appeared to him by the terebinth trees of Mamre, as he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day.
Note: No one has seen the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit at the same time.
Page 15: As a result, many who have become Jehovah's Witnesses in recent years are from broken families. They are either divorced or separated from their marriage mates, or they live in single-parent families. In addition, as Jesus foretold, the truth he taught has resulted in divisions in many families.-Matthew 10:34-37; Luke 12:51-53.
Note: Families will be divided over Jesus Christ.
Matthew 10:35-39 "For I have come to 'set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law'; and 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household.' He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it."
