Question about Memorial invitation

    I have a copy of the Memorial invitation (tract?) and I was curious about one paragraph.

    It states: "How does Jesus' death affect you? Why was it the greatest demonstration of love? Will you be counted among Jesus' friends?"

    My question is: Do JWs consider themselves Jesus' friends? I never heard that before.

    They're not like drinking buddies-type friends, they're more like when they see Jesus at the water cooler at work they smile, nod and say, "Whazzup?"

    Yes they do....

    WT 15.09 1987.p5

    ‘Almighty God and his Son as friends?’ you may wonder. ‘How is that possible? Is that not presumptuous?’ Well, the Bible says: "Abraham put faith in Jehovah, . . . and he came to be called ‘Jehovah’s friend.’" That certainly was undeserved kindness. Yet Jehovah’s Word says: "God opposes the haughty ones, but he gives undeserved kindness to the humble ones."—James 2:23; 4:6.
