in that scripture they being focused on earthly things means not being focused on spiritual things,are you disfellowshipped have you had experience with the truth at all
I both disagree and agree with you on the exact passage in question here. Yes, it is about earthly vs. spiritual things, but on the other hand, the "spiritual goal" of the JWs is primarily to make it into the new system (which really is a selfish, material, earthly goal), not for the sake of love for Christ and a life in Christ, for itself! That is, unconditional love for Christ as the motivation, as opposed to the JW-version, conditional love for Jehovah for selfish purposes (eternal life). The whole "spirituality" of every JW I ever met was centered around this, to make it into the new system. And everything they did, they did to make it. It was never done out of love (after all, dropping of magazines at doors doesn`t take much effort in terms of Love), but as "work" with a future payment in view. And hence, they are focused on earhtly, material things.
its impostant that if you have something against witnesses then it would be important to know what they know from the scriptures
Almost everyone on this board are ex-JWs, and know this religion very, very (all to) well. I would have thought you had figured that out by now.
