The Watchtower, May 1, 1934, p. 131

"The Watchtower is not the teacher of God's people. The Watchtower merely brings to the attention of God's people that which he has revealed, and it is the privilege of each and every one of God's children to prove by the Word of God whether these things are from man or from the Lord."

Riches, 1936 ed., p. 178-179

"If you find that a doctrine or teaching is a lie, you should quickly forsake it, regardless of who teaches it or how long you have believed that teaching to be trueÉIf you find that you have been for some time in an organization called 'the church', and that such organization teaches that which is contrary to God's Word of truth, then you will have to choose whether you will remain in accord with that so-called church' organization and its teachings or will forsake the same and rely upon the Word of God."

The Watchtower, November 15, 1963, p. 688

"Can there be false religion? It is not a form of religious persecution for anyone to say and to show that another religion is false. It is not religious persecution for an informed person to expose publicly a certain religion as being false, thus allowing persons to see the difference between false religion and true religion."

The Watchtower, March 1, 1966, p. 132

"Therefore, how will you respond when pointed statements are made about false religious teachings and corrupt practices? Will you immediately condemn the person or organization making the expose?É Contrary to what some may think, it is not unkind and unloving to lay bare falsehood and corruption."

The Truth That Leads to Eternal Life, 1968 ed., p. 13

"We need to examine, not only what we personally believe, but also what is taught by any religious organization with which we may be associated. Are its teachings in full harmony with God's Word, or are they based on the traditions of men? If we are lovers of the truth, there is nothing to fear from such an examination."

The Watchtower, April 15, 1971, p. 230

"Is it not obvious why this Book of books should be mankind's primary textbook for study?"

Awake!, October 22, 1973, p. 6

"Reasonable persons agree that the only fair method is to examine the evidence on both sides, both for and against a disputed theory. That is how one arrives at the truth."

The Watchtower, January 15, 1974, p. 35

"When persons are in great danger from a source that they do not suspect or are being misled by those they consider their friends, is it an unkindness to warn them? They may prefer not to believe the warning. They may even resent it. But does that free one from the moral responsibility to give that warning?"

Is This Life All There Is?, 1974 ed., p. 46

"It is obvious that the true God, who is himself 'the God of truth' and who hates lies, will not look with favor on persons who cling to organizations that teach falsehood. (Psalm 31:5; Proverbs 6:16-19; Revelation 21:8) And, really, would you want to be even associated with a religion that had not been honest with you?"

The Watchtower, August 1, 1978, p. 12

"Over the years, representatives of different churches have published many books and brochures for the purpose of 'exposing' Jehovah's Witnesses as heretics."
