FILM PICK: TRUTH BE TOLD @ COOLIDGE CORNER THEATRE

truthbetoldd

Scientology tends to be the go-to shit-on-able pseudo-religion.

But the new documentary Truth Be Told turns the spotlight on Jehovah’s Witnesses, exposing a profit-driven, isolationist crazytown. A Q&A at The Coolidge with director Gregorio Smith and cult expert Steven Hassan will follow.

    Sounds like you are paying $12 a head for propaganda. All the people in the trailer are unhappy; none of them are Jehovah’s Witnesses. One complains about “the real estate, the money, the equipment”. How does he think that printing literature in 500+ languages by volunteers and distributing it for free, globally, will be accomplished? (Mathew 24:14) “This GOOD NEWS of THE KINGDOM will preached in all the inhabited earth, FOR A WITNESS..”. Jesus gave this commission to ALL Christians.
    And no mention is made of all the people THEY hurt by their unfaithfulness. Jehovah’s Witnesses follow the Bible’s standards; (1 Corinthians 5:9-11) “ But now I am writing YOU to quit mixing in company with anyone called a brother that is a fornicator or a greedy person or an idolater or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner, not even eating with such a man. For what do I have to do with judging those outside? Do YOU not judge those on the inside,  while God judges those outside? “Remove the wicked [man] from among yourselves.” We uphold those standards. Maybe others do not; we do.
    There are two sides to every story and you’ll have to pay $12 to hear this side.
