Likewise I am impressed with question 4. It is a good way to ask it without getting the same answer JWs are supposed to give. She probably thought she could answer it, but then read the question again, and couldn't.
I wish I was as brilliant as you Auldsoul. As a JW, I couldn't be able to answer any of the questions. As a non-JW I still can't answer them with JW logic. All the same, I will give it a try from JW logic.
1) In Hebrews 1 we see that even the angels do obeisance to Jesus. This is the same act of worship Satan asked Jesus to do to him in Matthew 4. If even angels worship Jesus, why shouldn't we worship Jesus? The Angels was simply recognizing Jesus as being exhaulted by Jehovah. They was not worshipping him, nor was they praying to him.
(2) Where in the Bible do we find that congregation elders have authority to hold secret trials to judge guilt, innocence, and/or repentance? We see in the book of Acts that the Apostles held a meeting in Jerusalem. So perhaps during that meeting they threw a few people out that is not recorded in the Bible. Also Peter condemned Anninias and his wife to death when it was discovered they didn't give all the proceeds from the land they sold like they said they would. This is a precurser to how the Congregation does it today.
(3) Where in the Bible do we find that anyone is qualified to preach BEFORE baptism? When Jesus was a young lad, he stayed behind at the temple and spoke to the religious leaders, this was years before his baptism. So the same is true today, we preach before baptism just like Jesus did.
(4) If "in the beginning" Jesus was "a god" then why does Isaiah say that YHWH is the ONLY God? Was Jesus a false god, in the beginning, or was he YHWH? At the time Isaiah wrote his book, he was unaware of Jesus. John was written after Jesus died and was exhaulted. John knew of Jesus' exhaulted status and since Jehovah knows the end from the beginning, pre-exhaulted him before coming to Earth.
How did I do using JW logic?
