Ummm, I think you have that back-to-front. According to WT theology
Thank you for noticing. I totaly disagree with them on this. The Governing Body over the decades have been, and still are, so self-aborbed that they erroneously apply everything towards themselves in a favorable way. Ignoring their own sins along with the scriptural reality about the consequences for their behavior.
Its apparent to me, that after waiting 35 years and seeing Amageddon fail to come in 1914, the Slave that was faithful turned Evil. And it has been this Evil Slave that has been lording it over and beating God's people ever since!
When the Master arrives at Armageddon to settle accounts, it will not go well for those leading the Governing Body and to a lesser degree for those assisting them.
Matthew 25: 28 and 30
28 "Therefore take away the talent from him and give it to him that has the ten talents...30 And throw the good-for-nothing slave out into darkness outside. There is where [his] weeping and the gnashing of [his] teeth will be."
Matthew 24: 50 and 51
50 "the master of that slave will come on a day that he does not expect and in an hour that he does not know , 51 and will punish him with the greatest severity and will assign him his part with the hypocrites. There is where [his] weeping and the gnashing of [his] teeth will be."
Notice the three catagories and the distinctions Jesus made with regards to punishing the Evil Slave and its supporters:
Luke 12: 46 ~ 48
- The Evil Slave ~ 46 "...he will punish him with the greatest severity and assign him a part with the unfaithful ones."
- The Understanding Slave ~ 47 "Then that slave that understood the will of his master but did not get ready or do in line with his will will be beaten with many strokes."
- The Not Understanding Slave ~ 48 "But the one that did not understand and so did things deserving of strokes will be beaten with few..."
Denial is not a river in Egypt.
Question, after God completely destroys false religion, who is it that would be left to ask this?
Matthew 7: 21 ~ 23
21 "Not everyone saying to me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name? 23 And yet then I will confess to them: I never knew you! Get away from me you workers of lawlessness!"
This is all yet to happen...at Armageddon.
Ever get the feeling that Bethel reads this site?
I'm convinced of it.
