The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society: a member of the United Nations for 10 years
So? What's wrong with that? Nothing, except Jehovah's Witness leaders, who claim to have exclusive claim to biblical truth, have taught for many years that the United Nations and its predecessor, the League of Nations, are the so-called Satanic beasts of the Apocalypse or the Revelation of John. In fact, they said this is the very "scarlet-colored wild beast" that "Babylon the Great" or the "Great Harlot" of Revelation rides. "Babylon the Great" to the Jehovah's Witnesses is the "World empire of false religion" which includes all Christian, pagan, and world religions. This theology is claimed to be directly from God Himself. The "beast" or the United Nations will turn on the "whore" and destroy all religions in the world except Jehovah's Witnesses, the only "true Christians." If one looks into Watchtower Publications Indexes under the topic "United Nations" one will find multitudes of articles condeming the UN as being of Satan and predicting its destruction. Their affilation as an NGO (Non Government Agency) meant they were committed to the UN and it's charter. One of the criteria for membership is: "Have the commitment and means to conduct effective information programmes about UN activities by publishing newsletters, bulletins, and pamphlets; organizing conferences, seminars and round tables; and enlisting the cooperation of the media." UN NGO Criteria for Membership Was the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society going to renounce everything negative they have written about the UN and begin "information programmes" in the Watchtower magazine? Hardly. In fact they went to great lengths to keep the rank and file members of the Jehovah's Witness religion ignorant of their association with the UN. After this page and others like it were posted the Watchtower scrambled to get their name off the UN list
