The Theocratic Bible Institute is a non-sectarian ministry not associated with any denomination or sect. Certain religious organizations have seriously restricted sincere students of the Bible from having a proper understanding of His purposes shown in His own written Word. For us the Bible is the inspired Word of God and we wish to diligently study what Yahweh (Jehovah) has given to us in order to live in harmony with His Divine arrangements for all humanity. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Acts 17:11).
The editors are not interested in making profits from the distribution of God’s Word and Bible study related publications; neither do we request or accept contributions. All expenses involved with the work of the Theocratic Bible Institute is covered by the editorial committee. The Theocratic Bible Institute is NOT an organization, but rather a publisher of Bible based literature. Neither do we seek or encourage membership in man-made organizations.
In addition to Bible based articles and devotionals, this blog contains information about the history of the early International Bible Students Association and the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society; it’s goal is to present educational, encouraging and uplifting articles for brothers and sisters and others who are interested.
This is not a WT site and it is not connected to the WT Society. It is privately operated by brothers, particularly elders, who wish to serve their brothers and sisters in the Kingdom Witness work and for encouraging one another.
Feel free to use the materials on this site in your talks and presentations or as a part of your personal Theocratic research. You may also feel free to translate the pages of the site in other languages for free distribution among brothers, sisters and others who may be interested in the materials.
We do not encourage membership in any religious organization. “The endeavor to compel all men to think alike on all subjects, culminated in the great apostasy and the development of the great Papal system.” (Watchtower Reprints, September 1, 1893, p. 1572)
“There is no organization today clothed with such divine authority to imperiously command mankind. There is no organization doing this today; though we are well aware that many of them in theory claim that they ought to be permitted to do so.” (Watchtower Reprints, September 1, 1893, p. 1573)
“In view of these facts and also of the nature of the harvest work, and the additional fact that each one so gathered is expected to enter into the harvest work as a reaper, and will do so to the extent of his ability and opportunity, it is plain that the forming of a visible organization of such gathered out ones would be out of harmony with the spirit of the divine plan.” (Watchtower Reprints, December 1, 1894, p. 1743)
“Beware of ‘organization’ It is wholly unnecessary.” (Watchtower Reprints, September 15, 1895, p. 1866)
It is our belief that the “faithful and wise servant” is the body of all anointed brothers and sisters who are believers in Messiah. “To dispense knowledge of God and Christ to the household of faith and multitudes who hunger for truth, Jehovah through Christ at the temple has raised up in these ‘last days’ the ‘faithful and wise servant’. (Matt. 24:45-47) This servant is the association of all the remnant of Christ’s anointed body members, operating under the direction of their Head and King Christ Jesus.” (Counsel on Theocratic Organization for Jehovah’s Witnesses, page 4, paragraph 5; published by Watchtower Bible & Tract Society)
