I'll love this. At least I can contribute and ask questions
Re: Weekly Watchtower Study Edition Discussion Trend, For JW (JW Only) by Nobody: 9:10pm On Nov 11, 2019
Encouraging! smiley

But this will be upbuilding if introduced in a closed WhatsApp group chat, NOT on NL where nuisance like rottennaija whose parents, families and friends are all JWs only for him to leave all of them at home and start questioning those he has never met before, because these ones believe exactly what his Papa and Mama believes back home!

Charity begins at home says an adage. But most idiots just feel like it should be the other way round! wink

For worshiping in the best way we know or for trying to help others understand what we believe? Matthew 28:18-20
Or is it wrong to form a group chat and discuss as one family that everyone knew we are?
What exactly are we persistent in doing, evil or fine works? James 2:18-26undecided

Once you're NOT a JW, and you have JWs as relatives even as dad and mum, the wisest thing to do is to chat with them about what you don't know regarding their weekly magazine!
It's preposterous leaving all of them behind only to start looking for strangers to ask questions that you could have equally asked your own daddy and mummy AT HOME? embarassed

That's my point!

There's no need for exchange or trade words with me, just present what i said before anyone. Please don't mention JW because at the mention of that group name many can argue against what is black to white. Matthew 10:20-22
But if you present it in a way your listener won't suspect you're talking about JWs, you'll see clearly that what i've been telling you is the best thing to do, why because they will all think straight! smiley

You want others to understan what you believe but are you open to understanding other belief systems?

Even if the person has told you they don't believe, you still insist.

And the fact that you all refer ppl back to your website jw.org

When you stopped spreading falsehood about other people and their religion, when you stopped displaying hate and treat other humans as a subhuman underclass, when you stopped forcing people to commit suicide and other dangerous vices, probably then, you will see people leave you alone. Until then, you will have people like me.

The reason why we try to make people understand what we believe is for two purposes;
(1) Join us if it appeals to you!
(2) Know why we don't do in certain things!

As your neighbor you might feel like having this nice people join you in doing what you feel is good, but once you're aware of what we believe you will not be offended if we say "NO".

Many people wonder why we do things differently and some do feel like knowing about us without sitting together with us, so we direct them to jw.org

God bless you!

Do you care to understand what others believe?

If we do not care, we won't leave the comfort of our homes during both rain and sunshine only to come visiting you UNINVITED.

What often cause the friction is the anxiety in most of our own people, they are loaded with so much information that they can't wait to start divulging all what's in them.

But trust me we were taught to listen attentively whenever an outsider is willing to discuss with us, this will open the avenue to know what you have in mind.
Another point i'll like you to consider is the fact that we're the ones SEARCHING for you to speak with you, so it sounds somehow when the one who has come all the way to speak with you comes only for you the householder to start saying things you supposed to try and take to your neighbor!

Jesus said "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" Luke 6:45

Please who should be given more time to speak, is it the one who have come from his house or the one whose message is of lesser importance than other things?

I think if you truthfully have something important to say, you should be the one going to visit your neighbor! Matthew 10:11-15, 28:19-20

I've told you countless times the difference between a Jehovah's Witness and none JW, it's about the ONE AND ONLY GROUP WORSHIPING JEHOVAH!

Just walk up to your dad and mum, tell them you've SEEN the ONE AND ONLY GROUP BELONGING TO JEHOVAH, present all the proofs before them and see how they'll both hug you with tears of joy. And please don't forget Maximus hear, with that i'm your brother anytime if that's what you SEE.

But for you to be criticizing the ONE AND ONLY ORGANIZATION WE SEE PERFORMING, when you can't
point,
tell,
show or

Jehovah's Witnesses are people who will always stand for the only pure worship of our God.

rottennaija:


No, you don't worship baal, you worship the organisation and men. You see, that's why I had to stopped.

What i SEE is a GOVERNING BODY of 8 older men overseeing an organization that's formed by people from all races under the heavens, unitedly worshiping as one big happy family of peace loving worshippers. John 17:20-23 compared to Isaiah 2:1-4

Of course someone may object saying "how can over 8,500,000 people from all nations wholeheartedly subject themselves willingly and unopposed under just 8 old men?"
Well, Moses was just one single old man,that this same God made the head to lead his people to the promise land. Surely Moses was imperfect so he committed blunders, but whoever challenge Moses's authority is actually fighting JEHOVAH!embarassed

So i can SEE clearly that you are objecting to their headship, but it's your reason that's not clear to me. That's why i said "it will gladden the hearts of all witnesses of JEHOVAH globally if you can just point to another person serving as the Noah of our time"! smiley
Re: Weekly Watchtower Study Edition Discussion Trend, For JW (JW Only) by Nobody: 4:33pm On Nov 12, 2019
@rottennaija.

The opposers of Moses had reasons to do so.

God had never unite people of that number under the headship of one single human who WAS a thug.
Both Moses and the whole assembly are children of blessed Abraham.
Moses made several mistakes and it's obvious.
So they can conclude that it can't be just one single person who solely chose his own brother to serve as their high priest that God will keep using all the time!

But during the time of Jesus, a Carpenter's son emerged with wonders and sound teaching {Isaiah 9:6} he doesn't make noise in their streets like former prophets of old {Matthew 12:19} his teachings made many feel happy despite the terrible condition of their nation { Matthew 11:5}.
Seeing all of these, few Jews concluded that Jesus must be the promised Christ all the prophets have been talking about! Matthew 16:16 compared to John 20:41

Yet critics were stumbled as people were putting faith (trust) in Jesus. John 7:45-52

Jesus never claimed to be their God, but critics were saying he made himself God due to the way people are unitedly following him with strong faith! John 10:33

Today, over 8,500,000 people from all nations have come to SEE the achievements of this men and we have come to believe that the prophesy regarding the spiritual Jews of Zachariah has been fulfilled in their works! Zachariah 8:23

So no matter what you say Sir, all we need now is to replace them with another group. Don't worry, we know what we need to SEE in them before arriving at a conclusion! smiley

Actually, let me take you on some point there for it would appear your bible knowledge isn't that good. Jesus preach in the street with many following him. He also preach on mountain tops and in public places. For him to have been able the reach 5000 people with just his voice would require some shouting (noise if you may) unless you would like to believe he had some public address system.

Then coming to the amazing ability to acquire a following. Surely, you would acknowledge that it would pass for God's blessing to have billions of members while not having a perfect teaching. I think that why Catholic call themselves the one true church. If numeric increase is the case, then we have a lot of religious groups God is blessing.

You speak of Moses without reminding yourself that obedience is better than sacrifice and a fat of ram. Moses didn't enter the promise land because he failed in his commission. The same obedience your imperfect 8 men cannot obey. The worst is deny millions of their members the Mediator of Jesus and so many other false beliefs.

One thing is certain, if you want to obey God and follow the bible, then will come in conflict with the governing body through the organisation.

Instructively, Jesus had warn of those who would point to their great achievements in the day of their being called to account, they would say 'we prophesied in your name, expel demons, did powerful works', I will add have a big followers and a big organisation that catches cold when they sneeze. (Mt 7:21-23) But all those are meaningless when you cannot simply obey, which is better than sacrifice and all the powerful works, signs, wonders etc.

And no, you don't need groups as you keep saying. A wicked generation, as Jesus would say keeps looking for signs and people to follow so as to have their ears tickled.

All you need to to accept Jesus as your way to God and you will be saved. No groups, Organisations or anything else.

"For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear" - 2 Ti 4:3

That is why when I mentioned Jesus mediator, it itches your ears for its not what you desire to hear. Deep inside you, you wouldn't want that but you had accumulated teachers so as to tell you what your itchy ears wants to hear.

And if the teachers says OK, accept Jesus as your mediator, you would. You see how they become an object of stumble for you? They became your god.

You're not getting my point Sir!

Jesus spoke to about 5,000~7,000 people, but these ones WERE FOLLOWING HIM TO HERE HIS WISDOM {Mark 6:34}. Jesus did not just stand by the road side shouting to passersby many of whom might not even be interested in his message. Matthew 12:19

Certainly those crowd followed him because they WANT to hear him, and he took them to a quiet place where they can sit down with decorum to hear this wonderful counselor!

As for those who did many works in Jesus name that he denied them, he himself did not leave us in the dark as to why he denied them. Jesus said "they are workers of LAWLESSNESS" other Bible translations called it INIQUITY! Matthew 7:23

Iniquity means unlawful and unlawful connotes having people who aren't governed by the same rule, such people will be worshiping together but with different line of thought! Romans 15:5-6, 1Corinthians 1:10, Ephesians 4:3

Equity is the antonym of iniquity. Equity means no matter where you are, as long as you're claiming to be worshippers of the same God, your standard must be one. No nepotism of any kind. Well Jehovah's Witnesses have done just that, so they're NOT workers of INIQUITY (LAWLESSNESS).

Learn from past deeds of this same God!

There was a family in the Bible who vowed not to drink alcoholic beverages NOT because God commanded them but because their father said it. God promised to reward them NOT because they were keeping his laws but because they were loyal to their father. Jeremiah 35:1-19

God is in support of the governing body of Jehovah's Witnesses that's why they are able to gather over 8,500,000 loyalist globally as members of one organization! Isaiah 2:1-4

It's not the number that matters but the EQUITY binding them together as one Sir {John 17:20-23}

So you need not worry yourself about their laws, because their righteousness is from JEHOVAH! Isaiah 54:17 wink

@rottennaija

You can stand alone to worship your own God.

We PERFECTLY understand your type of faith.

It's the type where nobody watches your back, you're free to decide your own rules as in does and donts, so you owe no one any explanations as per however you choose to offer sacred services to your own God.

But Jehovah's Witnesses are the exact opposite of your type of beliefs. We are our brother's keepers so we must watch each other's back {Genesis 4:9} we monitor each other's moves and no one can isolate himself from the rule governing us as one {Leviticus 5:1-4} Whoever is tired of this type of faith is free to walk away, nobody will hold you back!

But you must bear in mind that that's the heritage of the worshipers of JEHOVAH, he is JEHOVAH of armies. Isaiah 9:7, Zachariah 6:12

Hello Sir, the word ARMIES reminds me of soldiers fighting together as one in the battle field and WATCHING EACH OTHER'S BACK!

So if you don't believe in a group of people working together as one big happy family of peace loving worshippers, over 8,500,000 individuals strongly believe in such a Union! John 17:20-23

And thousands are still flocking in while those who felt tired of the whole arrangement like you are taking their leave! smiley

Janosky:


"If numeric increase is the case, then we have a lot of religious groups God is blessing."
rottennaija false theory.

"A lot of religious groups" with conflicting doctrines and practices contrary to Jehovah's righteous standards... Jehovah and his Son can not bless.
Shebi ,Acts of the Apostles (emphasis on chapters 2,4,15 etc) no dey your bible again?
No need talking to an attention seeking renegade....


Pls stay your lane jare.

You didn't present any convincing argument than called what I wrote a false theory.

Second, speaking of conflicting doctrine, don't you see you are describing your religion? If you are a member of fulllife, you will see that their body of teaching is uniformed. The same applies with Deeper life, Redeem etc. Within them, they have the same body of teaching.

Then get to Catholic, they have the same body of believes among themselves. Mormons too. JWs too. Then when you compare different religion and groups, you find conflicting doctrines.

So Janosky, JWs is just among the different religious groups with a lot of conflicting doctrines. I don't want to speak about Jw doctrines that conflict with other religious groups or the bible, but within their religious body that is supposed to be one body of teaching, you see beliefs that conflict with themselves.

Examples of such are discussed in these videos.

@rottennaija

You can stand alone to worship your own God.

We PERFECTLY understand your type of faith.

It's the type where nobody watches your back, you're free to decide your own rules as in does and donts, so you owe no one any explanations as per however you choose to offer sacred services to your own God.

But Jehovah's Witnesses are the exact opposite of your type of beliefs. We are our brother's keepers so we must watch each other's back {Genesis 4:9} we monitor each other's moves and no one can isolate himself from the rule governing us as one {Leviticus 5:1-4} Whoever is tired of this type of faith is free to walk away, nobody will hold you back!

Yes. Let me respond to just a part of what you just put up there. Then I'll get to the others.

It's is what is called Christian freedom. Rules like made by the Watchtower is simply to put men and women into slavery, so that after being freed from the burdensome yoke of the mosaic law, we have the 8 men imposing new rules to people.

Jesus said his load is light and his yoke, easy. (Mt 11:30). Christians are sons of Jehovah, not slaves. Sons are free, slaves are not. So you see the beauty of Christian freedom? The apostle Paul warned, "You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings." (1 Co 7:23)

So I can understand why you could be bothered about my freedom in christ, because you just feel I should be in one yoke or another. It's your kind the apostle warned about who were spying in the freedom enjoyed by children of God. (Ga 2:4)

I understand very well, if you have never been free, you will never understand what real freedom in Jesus taste like.

*****************
Speaking of monitoring each others move, you see, if you really love God and Jesus and love your fellow believers, you will be truly free to express love devoid of such monitoring.

It never worked with the nation of Israel despite their informant system and monitoring. If you want to Genuine love, it's not when people are monitored but when they are free. JWs practice a communism type of religion where brother serve as informant system. Genuine love does not grow in such atmosphere, no wonder you have a lot of hypocrisy among yourselves, outward show or affection but inward, it full of rot.

Jesus didn't practice such. No wonder sinners were drawn to him, but hypocrite were not.
