Witnesses always use this argument to provide proof of the need to 'examine one's religion'.;
"Sincerity alone will not please God, but worshipping Him in 'Truth' will".....Yet when faced with clear wrong doctrine or chronology or misapplied scripture the common Witness reply is to 'leave it in Jehovah's hands and He will correct it in his due time'.
If He can correct it within the religion of Jehovah's witnesses - why can't he correct the same problems within the other churches?
Time and time again the Watchtower magazines used this argument in various forms;
WillSincerity Alone Please God? 1-1-64 Wt
Is Sincerity Enough? 6-1-56 Wt
DoesSincerely Believing Change Wrong into Right? 2-15-64 Wt
Why It Is Wise to Examine Your Religion 3-15-69 Wt
WillSincerity Alone Please God? 6-15-81 Wt
I always found this to be simplistic and hypocritical to say - yet as a dub I often found myself doing so.....
