MOST THE KM SCRIPTURES ARE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXTS WITH PAUL'S TEACHINGS ABOUT CHRIST!
Black bold scriptures are the wrongfully applied Septembers Kingdom Minstery.
Scriptures in red are Paul's expressed meanings versus KMblack bold scriptures.
The blue is my personal comments!
Sometimes I need to read around the scriptures to figure out if the WTBTS has the correct understanding. For example, The KM has stated that they are giving us our Meat at Due Season, and they use 1 Corinthians 1:10 so as not to do anything that causes division such as doing research together. Unfortunately for the WTBTS, the following verses does not apply to research it has something to do with the new baptized Christians who were arguing which persons they belonged with by who performed their baptisim Paul, Apollos, or Cepahs.
1 Corinthians 1:10;8 He will also make YOU firm to the end, that YOU may be open to no accusation in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, by whom YOU were called into a sharing with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10 Now I exhort YOU, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that YOU should all speak in agreement, and that there should not be divisions among YOU, but that YOU may be fitly united in the same mind and in the same line of thought. 11 For the disclosure was made to me about YOU, my brothers, by those of [the house of] Chlo´e, that dissensions exist among YOU. 12 What I mean is this, that each one of YOU says: “I belong to Paul,” “But I to A·pol´los,” “But I to Ce´phas,” “But I to Christ.” 13 The Christ exists divided. Paul was not impaled for YOU,was he? Or were YOU baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I am thankful I baptized none of YOU except Cris´pus and Ga´ius, 15 so that no one may say that YOU were baptized in my name. 16 Yes, I also baptized the household of Steph´a·nas. As for the rest, I do not know whether I baptized anybody else. 17 For Christ dispatched me, not to go baptizing, but to go declaring the good news, not with wisdom of speech, that the torture stake of the Christ should not be made useless. 18 For the speech about the torture stake is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is God’s power.
Can anyone say that WTBTS was impaled for us? What did Paul mean? Who do YOU say YOU belong WTBTS or Christ? Does Christians need endorsements from the WTBTS or from the line of thought of what Paul was referring which points to Christ? Does it matter who Baptized YOU? I think the KM lost insight to the meaning of Paul's lecture!
Col. 2:6, 7 1 For I want YOU to realize how great a struggle I am having in behalf of YOU and of those at La·o·di·ce´a and of all those who have not seen my face in the flesh, 2 that their hearts may be comforted, that they may be harmoniously joined together in love and with a view to all the riches of the full assurance of [their] understanding, with a view to an accurate knowledge of the sacred secret of God, namely, Christ. 3 Carefully concealed in him are all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge. 4 This I am saying that no man may delude YOU with persuasive arguments. 5 For though I am absent in the flesh, all the same I am with YOU in the spirit, rejoicing and beholding YOUR good order and the firmness of YOUR faith toward Christ.
6 Therefore, as YOU have accepted Christ Jesus the Lord, go on walking in union with him,I love what Paul is stating how we can walk in union with Christ. Verse 2 He has the view of the secret accurate acknowledge of God not through WTBTS publications, assemblies, or meetings. 7 rooted and being built up in him and being stabilized in the faith, just as YOU were taught, overflowing with [faith] in thanksgiving. In Paul's time they were taught but today all Christians have the bible and do not need deception powers of sects like the WTBTS.
8 Look out: perhaps there may be someone who will carry YOU off as his prey through the philosophy and empty deception according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary things of the world and not according to Christ; 9 because it is in him that all the fullness of the divine quality dwells bodily. WTBTS forgot to include this important fact in the KM not giving Christ his full due. 10 And so YOU are possessed of a fullness by means of him, who is the head of all government and authority. Opps head of all government and authority well there goes the 1914 DATE! 11 By relationship with him YOU were also circumcised with a circumcision performed without hands by the stripping off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision that belongs to the Christ,12 for YOU were buried with him in [his] baptism, and by relationship with him YOU were also raised up together through [YOUR] faith in the operation of God, who raised him up from the dead.
What is more important for the reader to understand? That someone will carry YOU off as his prey or that you were buried with Christ through your baptism and will be raised up! WTBTS reversed the importance of Paul's teachings he is still teaching baptism . Granted one does not want to be swept up with foolish arguments like should one do research with their brothers and sisters which takes the meaning out of Paul's message about Christ!
13 Furthermore, though YOU were dead in YOUR trespasses and in the uncircumcised state of YOUR flesh, [God] made YOU alive together with him. He kindly forgave us all our trespasses 14 and blotted out the handwritten document against us, which consisted of decrees and which was in opposition to us; and He has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the torture stake. 15 Stripping the governments and the authorities bare, he exhibited them in open public as conquered, leading them in a triumphal procession by means of it.
It really is sad that WTBTS wasted so much of the peoples time who long to hear the word of God and true bible hope. They forgot to mention Christ love and what he did for us all from the torture stake.
16 Therefore let no man judge YOU in eating and drinking or in respect of a festival or of an observance of the new moon or of a sabbath; 17 for those things are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to the Christ. 18 Let no man deprive YOU of the prize who takes delight in a [mock] humility and a form of worship of the angels, “taking his stand on” the things he has seen, puffed up without proper cause by his fleshly frame of mind, 19 whereas he is not holding fast to the head, to the one from whom all the body, being supplied and harmoniously joined together by means of its joints and ligaments, goes on growing with the growth that God gives.
I really have not meant anyone who worshipped angels and mocks Christians do you? The head is Christ and the body is all Christians. Paul really did not care who baptized them as long as it was done with Christ in mind! Like so many religions, I am sure the WTBTS really does care if your baptized in another Christian sect! But in reality according to Paul, we are all Christians waiting for Christ we should consider our baptism as belonging to Christ and not any organization or church.
Matt. 24:45-4745 “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Happy is that slave if his master on arriving finds him doing so. 47 Truly I say to YOU, He will appoint him over all his belongings.
All Christains are the faithful slave not just the 144,000 prior to 1935.
1 Tim. 1:3-7 3 Just as I encouraged you to stay in Eph´e·sus when I was about to go my way into Mac·e·do´ni·a, so I do now, that you might command certain ones not to teach different doctrine, 4 nor to pay attention to false stories and to genealogies, which end up in nothing, but which furnish questions for research rather than a dispensing of anything by God in connection with faith. Really now! If the WTBTS did not fabricate there entire doctrine no one would have to read their past books for truths! They are so big into genealogies it defeats their purpose to quotes this scripture. 5 Really the objective of this mandate is love out of a clean heart and out of a good conscience and out of faith without hypocrisy. This was Paul's important message6 By deviating from these things certain ones have been turned aside into idle talk, 7 wanting to be teachers of law, but not perceiving either the things they are saying or the things about which they are making strong assertions.
8 Now we know that the Law is fine provided one handles it lawfullyNow we are getting down to Paul's meat! which has nothing to do with modern day research outside the WTBTS! 9 in the knowledge of this fact, that law is promulgated, not for a righteous man, but for persons lawless and unruly, ungodly and sinners, lacking loving-kindness, and profane, murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, manslayers,9 in the knowledge of this fact, that law is promulgated, not for a righteous man, but for persons lawless and unruly, ungodly and sinners, lacking loving-kindness, and profane, murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, manslayers, 10 fornicators, men who lie with males, kidnappers, liars, false swearers, and whatever other thing is in opposition to the healthful teaching 11 according to the glorious good news of the happy God, with which I was entrusted. 12 I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who imparted power to me, because he considered me faithful by assigning me to a ministry, 13 although formerly I was a blasphemer and a persecutor and an insolent man. Okay, there is hope for us sinners! More important information that I think the brothers and sister could have benefited from hearing! Nevertheless, I was shown mercy, because I was ignorant and acted with a lack of faith. 14 But the undeserved kindness of our Lord abounded exceedingly along with faith and love that is in connection with Christ Jesus. Wow! here Paul speaks about underserved kindness, grace. 15 Faithful and deserving of full acceptance is the saying that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. Of these I am foremost. 16 Nevertheless, the reason why I was shown mercy was that by means of me as the foremost case Christ Jesus might demonstrate all his long-suffering for a sample of those who are going to rest their faith on him for everlasting life. More good message from Jesus that people would love to have heard and read in the KM or any publication written by WTBTS! 17 Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible, invisible, [the] only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. 18 This mandate I commit to you, child, Timothy, in accord with the predictions that led directly on to you, that by these you may go on waging the fine warfare; 19 holding faith and a good conscience, which some have thrust aside and have experienced shipwreck concerning [their] faith. 20 Hy·me·nae´us and Alexander belong to these, and I have handed them over to Satan that they may be taught by discipline not to blaspheme.
WTBTS in the KM really did miss the point in Paul's writings
1 Continue reminding them to be in subjection and be obedient to governments and authorities as rulers, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak injuriously of no one, not to be belligerent, to be reasonable, exhibiting all mildness toward all men. 3 For even we were once senseless, disobedient, being misled, being slaves to various desires and pleasures, carrying on in badness and envy, abhorrent, hating one another.
4 However, when the kindness and the love for man on the part of our Savior, God, was manifested, 5 owing to no works in righteousness that we had performed, but according to his mercy he saved us through the bath that brought us to life and through the making of us new by holy spirit. 6 This [spirit] he poured out richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 that, after being declared righteous by virtue of the undeserved kindness of that one, we might become heirs according to a hope of everlasting life.
8 Faithful is the saying, and concerning these things I desire you to make firm assertions constantly, in order that those who have believed God may keep their minds on maintaining fine works. These things are fine and beneficial to men. 9 But shun foolish questionings and genealogies and strife and fights over the Law, for they are unprofitable and futile. Okay, so this is the only scripture worth proving WTBTS points! How about the WTBTS use of a foolish question should people gather to gather to do research? Should people debate? 10 As for a man that promotes a sect, reject him after a first and a second admonition;Wow what about this one who promotes a sect? Russell, Rutherford WTBTS it is a sect!11 knowing that such a man has been turned out of the way and is sinning, he being self-condemned.
12 When I send Ar´te·mas or Tych´i·cus to you, do your utmost to come to me at Ni·cop´o·lis, for there is where I have decided to winter. 13 Carefully supply Ze´nas, who is versed in the Law, and A·pol´los for their trip, that they may not lack anything. 14 But let our people also learn to maintain fine works so as to meet their pressing needs, that they may not be unfruitful.
15 All those with me send you their greetings. Give my greetings to those who have affection for us in the faith.
Col 1:5-10 May the undeserved kindness be with all of YOU people. 5 because of the hope that is being reserved for YOU in the heavens. This [hope] YOU heard of before by the telling of the truth of that good news 6 which has presented itself to YOU, even as it is bearing fruit and increasing in all the world just as [it is doing] also among YOU, from the day YOU heard and accurately knew the undeserved kindness of God in truth. 7 That is what YOU have learned from Ep´a·phras our beloved fellow slave, who is a faithful minister of the Christ on our behalf, 8 who also disclosed to us YOUR love in a spiritual way.
9 That is also why we, from the day we heard [of it], have not ceased praying for YOU and asking that YOU may be filled with the accurate knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual comprehension, 10 in order to walk worthily of Jehovah to the end of fully pleasing [him] as YOU go on bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the accurate knowledge of God, 11 being made powerful with all power to the extent of his glorious might so as to endure fully and be long-suffering with joy, 12 thanking the Father who rendered YOU suitable for YOUR participation in the inheritance of the holy ones in the light.
If YOU only explore the Insight On the Scriptures andAll Scriptures Inspired of God and Beneficial then you loose sight of God's bearing fruit in every good work. God gives accurate knowledge it does not come from WTBTS or any other sect! What about debating about the many books the WTBTS states is not from God, such as Josephus or historical data about Jerusalem? How about God fruit bearing historical books that the society uses to prove the bible as true!
Also, if you only read the scriptures that is quoted and neglect to read some verses before and after you may be misguided down the wrong path and loose sight all together on Christ loving kindness.
Yes I think that the KM 9/07 is right All Christians should shun foolish questions! Questions like should people get together and after prayer make sure that the WTBTS is telling the truth? Should people debate bible truths verses WTBTS doctrirnes?
One can only question before receiving an answer.
