"And he again started teaching beside the sea. And a very great crowd gathered near him, so that he went aboard a boat and sat out on the sea, but all the crowd beside the sea were on the shore.  So he began to teach them many things with illustrations and to say to them in his teaching:  “Listen. Look! The sower went out to sow.  And as he was sowing, some [seed] fell alongside the road, and the birds came and ate it up.  And other [seed] fell upon the rocky place where it, of course, did not have much soil, and it immediately sprang up because of not having depth of soil.  But when the sun rose, it was scorched, and for not having root it withered.  And other [seed] fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.  But others fell upon the fine soil, and, coming up and increasing, they began to yield fruit, and they were bearing thirtyfold, and sixty and a hundred.”  So he added the word: “Let him that has ears to listen listen.” Mr4:3

the truth can only fall on ears that can listen and are willing to grow. the birds are societies diversions.

Odd that "false religion" is such a present symbol in the Bible noticeable only to Jehovah's Witnesses yet the JW faith is a false religion itself. Don't worry though DGN because I have a friend who is a JW and I did several months worth of study with him and I don't reject any of them. Most of them are of noble character and faith but they are wrong on a few issues. All established religions are false. The only true faith is the inward faith and inwardly revealed religion.

What is revealed however is not subjective or situational as only the truth can be revealed. We find in ourselves this faith, not in an institution.

Good thinking but that might be better explained by the 'thrones';
"On that day Jesus, having left the house, was sitting by the sea; 2 and great crowds gathered to him, so that he went aboard a boat and sat down, and all the crowd was standing on the beach. 3 Then he told them many things by illustrations, saying: “Look! A sower went out to sow; 4 and as he was sowing, some [seeds] fell alongside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. 5 Others fell upon the rocky places where they did not have much soil, and at once they sprang up because of not having depth of soil. 6 But when the sun rose they were scorched, and because of not having root they withered. 7 Others, too, fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them. 8 Still others fell upon the fine soil and they began to yield fruit, this one a hundredfold, that one sixty, the other thirty. 9 Let him that has ears listen.” Mt13:1
