  • Never heard of them (or if I did, I have blocked it from my memory) ;) But if you want to know all about it you can read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watchtower_Society
  • The Watchtower Society is the name for the legal instrument of the Jehovah's Witnesses (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_instruments_of_Jehovah%27s_Witnesses).
  • That's the Jehovah Witnessess. I am a christian, and believe in the trinity, which they don't. Father, Son and Holy Spirit all three in one.
  • The Watchtower Society is the legal organization in use by Jehovah's Witnesses. It is the instrument that they use to help them accomplish the work of preaching and teaching the Bible. Matthew 24:45
  • The Watchtower society is the world headquarters of the JW and is to Jehovah's Witnesses what the Vatican is to Catholics. The CORE dogma of the Watchtower organization is that Jesus had his second coming 'invisibly' in the year 1914.Their entire doctrinal superstructure is built on this falsehood. -- Text snipped by moderator: inflammatory, did not address the question -- Respectfully,Danny Haszard
  • The Watchtower Society is the legal name for the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses. Really to find out more about Jehovah's Witnesses. here is the best source: http://www.watchtower.org/e/jt/index.htm?article=article_02.htm
  • The Watchtower Society is the printing company and office and legal corporation used by Jehovah's Witnesses. Nothing more.
  • It is part of the Jehovahs witnesses organization... Charles Taze Russell began the printing of 'Zions Watchtower' in 1879 & continue to create & publish Bible studies that would be contrary to Biblical Christian beliefs...
    • RANDIEM
      This is False. Charles Russell and a few associates began their systematic study of the Bible in the late 1800s. He had carefully compared the teachings of many different religions, even non-Christian religions, with what the Bible says. He soon realized that NOT one of those religions completely adhered to Gods Word. At one point, he met with a number of local clergymen in hopes that these men would reinstitute teachings from the Bible and teach them to members of their congregations. The clergymen were NOT interested.
  • Perryman and several others have given useful answers, and with respect, i would put a little finer point to it. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York is a non-profit publishing corporation that prints books, magazines and audio/video educational materials, arranges conventions and so forth. It is one of several legal entities used around the world. The Watch Tower Society of Pennsylvania has other functions. The International Bible Students' Association is the legal arm of Jehovah's Witnesses in Britain and most of the 94 branch offices in various lands are represented by different associations or corporations. These organizations serve well for the handling of funds, maintenence of property and so on. As a worldwide brotherhood, JWs are united in such a way that, should governments collapes and coporations become defunct, the congregation will continue to function. So, while "Jehovah's Witnesses" and "Watchtower" are closely associated, they are not one and the same.
  • The watchtower is nothing more than bullshit religious propoganda that will destroy the mind of anyone seeking the truth, and the jw's are so far from the truth.

  • The Watchtower Society is the name given for the group of corporations used by Jehovah's Witnesses to represent the organization in various administrative matters. The Watchtower Society and/or it's name has been used in conjunction with the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses. But, the Jehovah's Witnesses want it understood that there is a difference between the Watchtower Society and the organization. The corporations (Watchtower) are not identical with the organization (Jehovah's Witnesses), but are used in varying degrees by the Jehovah's Witnesses.
  • The Watch Tower Society and the Bible In 1881 a small but earnest band of Bible teachers and students formed what later became the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society. At first, they distributed Bibles produced by other Bible societies, including Tischendorf’s Greek Scriptures. By 1890, however, they had entered directly into Bible publishing, sponsoring the first of a number of Bible editions. In 1926 the Society began printing the Bible on its own presses. But the need for an updated translation of the Bible was becoming more evident. Could the knowledge gained through the discoveries and scholarship of the preceding century be incorporated in an understandable, affordable Bible? With this objective, associates of the Society set out in 1946 to produce a fresh translation of the Scriptures. One Translation, Many Languages A translation committee of experienced anointed Christians was organized to produce the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures in English. It was published in six volumes, released from 1950 to 1960, beginning with the Christian Greek Scriptures. Since 1963 it has been translated into an additional 27 languages, with more in progress. The goals for other languages have been the same as for English. First, the translation should be accurate, as near to the original thoughts as possible. The meaning must not be bent to conform to a particular doctrinal understanding. Second, consistency should be maintained, the translation holding to one rendering for each major word as far as the context reasonably permits. Such an approach helps readers to see how Bible writers used specific words. Third, the translation should be as literal as possible without obscuring the meaning. Literalness gives the reader closer access to the flavor of the original languages and the associated thought processes. And fourth, it should be easy for the common people to read and understand. The rather literal style of the English New World Translation facilitates translating it into other languages. For this purpose the Society’s translation teams presently use advanced computerized tools to speed up their work and to make it more accurate. This system helps translators to compile lists of vernacular equivalents for each major word. It also enables them to study the English renderings of each Hebrew and Greek word in the Bible. Translating from the English, rather than working directly from the Hebrew and Greek, offers important advantages. Besides shortening translation time, it makes possible greater unity of expression in all languages. Why? Because it is much easier to translate precisely from one modern language into another than to translate from an ancient language into various modern ones. After all, translators can consult with native speakers of modern languages but not of languages spoken thousands of years ago. Good News for All Nations
