I guess I am trying to figure out why you are trying to reason w/ JWs using the Bible. We know that they hold to standards that were established by the old time rulers of the WTBTS. That being said, they establish the rule and then spin the Bible to support their theory.
Sadly true. Their leaders are most guilty of it though because they know better.
Pearls before swine people, pearls before swine.
Perhaps, remember when we were active Witnesses. It was because bilicaly what we were being taught made sense...at least in the begining before we were able to distinguish between bible truth and false human reasoning...and all the other errors. I still believe in the bible as containing the truth about God and the eventuality of mankind. So I posted this Thread for anyone in or out of the WTS, that might still consider the bible to mean something, to consider.
Frightening how similar JWs and polygamists are ... all creepy and controlling!
Without a doubt. Religious Fundelmenatisim is a scary and dangerous thing!
