"They point out that they themselves and their forefathers for generations had Bible classes and Bible studies all to no purpose until the Lord, in due time, sent them the 'Bible Keys,' through the Society."

The Watchtower Reprints, September 15, 1910, p. 4685

"Furthermore, not only do we find that people cannot see the divine plan in studying the Bible by itself, but we see, also, that if anyone lays the SCRIPTURE STUDIES aside, even after he has used them, after he has become familiar with them after he has read them for ten years if he then lays them aside and ignores them and goes to the Bible alone, though he has understood his Bible for ten years, our experience shows that within two years he goes into darkness. On the other hand, if he had merely read the SCRIPTURE STUDIES with their references, and had not read a page of the Bible, as such, he would be in the light at the end of the two years, because he would have the light of the Scriptures."

The Watchtower Reprints, September 15, 1911, p. 4885

"No very clear understanding of the Bible was reached during all these centuries"

The Watchtower Reprints, September 15, 1911, p. 4885

"Rather we should seek for dependent Bible study, rather than for independent Bible study"

The Watchtower Reprints, September 15, 1911, p. 4885

"Any class leader who would make objection to a reference being made to THE WATCH TOWER or to STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES in connection with the discussion of any topic should properly be viewed with suspicion as a teacher."

The Watchtower, July 1, 1943, p. 201

"The religious hierarchy of the Vatican, being unable to prevent the proclamation of God's Word, further belittles Bible Study by the common people by ascribing to itself infallibility and by claiming that it is the only organization authorized and qualified to interpret the Bible."

The Watchtower, May 1, 1957, p. 274

"The world is full of Bibles, which Book contains the commandments of God. Why, then, do the people not know which way to go? Because they do not also have the teaching or law of the mother, which is the light."

The Watchtower, August 15, 1981, p. 28-29

"They say that it is sufficient to read the Bible exclusively, either alone or in small groups at home. But, strangely, through such 'Bible reading,' they have reverted right back to the apostate doctrines that commentaries by Christendom's clergy were teaching 100 years agoÉ"

The Watchtower, December 1, 1981, p. 27

"Unless we are in touch with this channel of communication that God is using, we will not progress along the road to life, no matter how much Bible reading we doÉ"

The Watchtower, March 1, 1983, p. 25

"They will declare that all one needs to do is to read the Bible. But Christendom has been reading the Bible for centuries. And look at the indistinct trumpet call coming from Christendom today! See the confusion and misunderstanding as to the true message contained in God's Word!"
