IN the bible it says, "for those who die; they have been aquitted of their sins, " So why do JWs continue to shunn sinners, if we die we are better off than they are because our tresspasses have been forgiven. What you think?
"for those who die; they have been aquitted of their sins, "
So for JWs who have non-JW family and friends that they don't want to see get destroyed by God at Armegedon, wouldn't the loving thing for them to do is put a bullet in their head?
Then their sins will have been aquitted and they will be guaranteed a resurrection in the new world order.
Call it a preemtive strike against god killing them for all eternity.
So why do JWs continue to shunn sinners, if we die we are better off than they are because our tresspasses have been forgiven.
They won't shun be able to shun us after we die! But while we're still alive, our "sin" of non-conformance to
God's holy organizationthe Watchtower Society continues. So the loving/shunning must continue.
Actually this scripture presents quite a challenge to JW doctrine, because if it were a physical death that acquitted one, then even Adam and Eve and Mussolini and Hitler would have to be acquitted and resurrected.
So their explanation is that "die" in this verse isn't a physical death, but a spiritual death as to one's old ways. And OF COURSE, this verse (as does 99.9% of the New Testament) only applies to the anointed class of Jehovah's Witnesses.
And OF COURSE, this verse (as does 99.9% of the New Testament) only applies to the anointed class of Jehovah's Witnesses. It can not apply that way because any annointed that falls away has no hope of ever being resurrected via their Doctrine: therefore their doctrine would cancel out the scripture "that death aquits the sinner." They are in a conflict of scripture.

The New Life in Christ
What should we say then? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may multiply? Absolutely not! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Or are you unaware that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? T herefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in a new way of life. For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death, we will certainly also be in the likeness of His resurrection. For we know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that sin’s dominion over the body may be abolished, so that we may no longer be enslaved to sin, since a person who has died is freed from sin’s claims. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him, because we know that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death no longer rules over Him. For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to God. So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Sooooo, where would I find this scripture ? gona beat my wife with it.....
Let him who is without sin cast the first stone!
