To ALL Jehovah’s Witnesses & Interested Persons:




The following is the official policy, and the actual words Jehovah's Witnesses must speak in the door-to-door work to explain their position on churches being NGOs for the United Nations, if asked this question:

Watchtower Magazine, June 1, 1991, p. 17, Their Refuge—A Lie!

10 However, she has not done so. Instead, in her quest for peace and security, she insinuates herself into the favor of the political leaders of the nations—this despite the Bible’s warning that friendship with the world is enmity with God.(James 4:4) Moreover, in 1919 she strongly advocated the League of Nations as man’s best hope for peace. Since 1945 she has put her hope in the United Nations.(Compare Revelation 17:3, 11) How extensive is her involvement with this organization?

11 A recent book gives an idea when it states:“NO LESS THAN TWENTY-FOUR CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS ARE REPRESENTED AT THE UN. Several of the world’s religious leaders have visited the international organization. Most memorable were the visits of His Holiness Pope Paul VI during the General Assembly in 1965 and of Pope John Paul II in 1979. Many religions have special invocations, prayers, hymns and services for the United Nations. The most important examples are those of the Catholic, the Unitarian-Universalist, the Baptist and the Bahai faiths.”

See the omitted part below, of the original quote from Robert Muller:




-- By Robert Muller


"Prayer, meditation and spirituality at the UN are fascinating subjects. All major world religions are accredited to the United Nations AS NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS [NGOs]. For example, no less than twenty-four Catholic organizations are represented at the UN. Several of the world's religious leaders have visited the international organization. Most memorable were the visits of His Holiness Pope Paul VI during the General Assembly in 1965 and of Pope John Paul II in 1979. Many religions have special invocations, prayers, hymns and services for the United Nations. The most important examples are those of the Catholic, the Unitarian-Universalist, the Baptist and the Bahai faiths…”                                                  

When you make a close comparison of the two above quotes, you will clearly see the Watchtower LIFTED their quote from Mr. Muller's statement. And it is clear from reading the entire quote from Mr. Muller, he was specifically referring to NGO participation.

So according to the Watchtower

Society, it is the UN-NGO status itself, that constitutes apostasy

in God's eyes.

Remember This Issue of the Watchtower???

When the Watchtower Society stated above: "NO LESS THAN TWENTY-FOUR CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS ARE REPRESENTED AT THE UN," they were referring to twenty-four (24) NGOs maintained by the Catholic Church for the UN. Therefore, how can this be APOSTASY before Jehovah on the part of the Catholic Church and others being UN NGOs,


and NOT apostasy for the Watchtower Society & Jehovah's Witnesseswho were also voluntary NGOs for the UN for ten (10) years, all during the 1990s???

How can this be?

Front Cover of the June 1st, 1991 Watchtower Magazine

Title of the infamous article studied week of July 8th, 1991 shown above.

Key paragraphs about apostasy with United Nations shown above.

So if the Catholic Church is “guilty” before God of


“Apostasy” because of being an NGO Supporter of the UN,


then doesn’t this also mean the Watchtower Society and


all eight (8) million Jehovah’s Witnesses


have become (at least) a part of “Babylon The Great”


because of their hypocritical, secret NGO Alliance with the


 United Nations Organization for close to 10 years??? --


Revelation 18:4

The above quote in paragraph 11 of the Watchtower, June 1, 1991 article (noted above) is not credited by the Watchtower Society of course, but it appears to have been taken from the 1982 book, NEW GENESIS: SHAPING A GLOBAL SPIRITUALITY (ISBN # 1-680465-04-3) chapter 6, under the subheading, "Prayer And Meditation At The United Nations" by Robert Muller.

Thus in reality, all the while the Watchtower Society was condemning the Catholic Church for being NGOs with the United Nations, they themselves were at the SAME TIME hypocritically applying for membership as NGOs with the United Nations in the year of 1991! -- See Luke 12:1-3; Galatians 5:9 NWT.

the subheading:

United Nations!)

For a detailed discussion on the word “APOSTASY”, please see the article entitled:


The True Meaning Of Apostasy

On March 4, 2004, the United Nations Organization issued a public statement about the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society's direct involvement with the Department of Public Information as a NGO [or Non Governmental Organization], thus making Jehovah's Witnesses direct supporters of the United Nations Organization between the years of 1992 and 2001. This deliberate act, as taught by the Watchtower Society & Jehovah's Witnesses, automatically constitutes National “Apostasy” against God’s Covenant. Thus, National “Atonement” is needed!!! (See Lev. 4:1-21; Daniel 11:30, “Scapegoat” Covenant.)
