It is interesting to see you say this...
Really though, who cares what the WTS teached if it isn't from the Bible?
I care. They say everything they teach is bible based and comes from Jehovah, do they not? So you had better believe I care if it doesn't.
One post back I said this...
A pioneer once put this senerio out to discuss. "Let's say you have a glass of pure water. 100% pure water, no preservatives or additives. The water represents pure Bible truth. Now I am going to remove 10% of the water and replace it with a deadly poison. Would you drink the glass of water? Would you accept a Bible study knowing 10% of what a religion taught, came from another source other than Jehovah?"
Funny how this pioneer gave me a senerio that actually caused me to quit the JWs.
AlanF asked this...
So I have a couple of questions for you: Knowing that Witness leaders have committed a number of serious crimes against the JW community and are not about to repent, do you think that they have God's approval? If not, why would a sincere Christian continue giving lip service to loyalty to them?
I am curious what your reply will be. No, don't get me wrong, I am not gettin on you about your religion. If it makes you happy, I can respect that. But there must be something that causes you to think independently from the Watchtower's publications. I'm curious what that might be and how you justify going, knowing you have something that keeps you from buying in 100%. I've been taught since I was a small child that if you don't buy in 100%, you are not going to be saved. I'm just wondering how you do it.
