Jehovah’s Witnesses deny the sufficiency of the Bible

June 17, 2011

If the 6 volumes of ‘Scripture Studies’ are practically the Bible topically arranged, with Bible proof-texts given, we might not improperly name the volumes- ‘The Bible’ in an arranged form. That is to say, they are not merely comments on the Bible, but they are practically the Bible itself…Furthermore, not only do we find that people cannot see the divine plan in studying the Bible itself, but we see also that if anyone lays the ‘Scripture Studies’ … after he has read them for 10 years-if he then lays them aside and ignores them and goes to the Bible alone…our experience shows that within 2 years he goes into darkness. On the other hand, if he has merely read the ‘S.S.’ 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.

Charles Taze Russell, Watchtower, Sept 15, 1910

He does not impart his holy spirit and understanding and appreciation of his Word apart from his visible organization.

Watchtower, July 1, 1965, pg. 391
