      Did you actually read case study 29? Do you have a time stamp of the video where you say Mr. Jackson lied?

    JW leaders have lied so many times in so many courts it's difficult to guess to which you refer... but let me give the JW response.....

    JW leaders have never lied to anyone ever.

    That's the sort of thinking it takes to be a JW!!!

    You say something without giving any facts.

    I could say "Why did Dina lie about the governing body?" and leave it at that. People would think you lied.

    So, what are you talking about Dina? Are you lying about people you do not know?

    You may not like BJ's answer, but it is the truth.

    This charge was leveled against Bro. Russell.

    Yet when you read the actually court records and compare them to the version presented in the news papers and pamphlets of the trial.

    You will find the news reports and pamphlets were a distortion [which are in effect lies] of what Bro. Russel said.

    These false charges [lying in court] are still being claimed today, by those who oppose Jehovah's Witnesses.

    And let us not forget,

    "Everything on the internet and in the news papers, and on TV is 100% true, especially when reporting against Jehovah's Witnesses."

    This is what the opposers of Jehovah's Witnesses want you to believe.

    ==========================================

    edit to Reb and Dina.

    Have you read the actual transcripts?

    How do you know the videos are 'unedited'?

    BECAUSE EVERYTHING on the internet is true and accurate and reliable! 

    And what about those dinosaurs in the movies "Jurassic Park" everyone knows they must be real and well trained to be able to do everything on cue and per script.

    And you will be happy to hear, 'no dinosaur was harm during the making of these movies'.

    EDIT: Please provide links in your updates when you ask questions. Otherwise, the public might not believe you.

    Most JW are oblivious to this.

    Their cult leaders say it's all lies and the JWs will just believe them.

    The cult's brainwashing is second to none.

    Geoffrey Jackson lied like a rug at the Australian Royal Commission hearings.

    Satan, “the father of the lie,” uses those under his control to spread lies about Jehovah and about our brothers and sisters. John 8:44

    For instance, apostates publish lies and distort facts about Jehovah’s organization on websites and through television and other media.

    I have no knowledge of that and why are you posting so many lies about JW's. Are you a disfellowshipped person who cannot make it as a JW?

    You might have to narrow this down, as there have been multiple instances of this.

    Why in general?  It's actually very "human" to lie in order to defend something you believe in!  Psychologists will tell you that we almost all do this!

    *Probably not the answer you were looking for, but without a citation of the specific event, it's hard to go much deeper!
