One needs to be a Jehovah's witness (not a Jehovah's Witness) to love as Jehovah teaches through His Holy Word. That is, it is whole-souled devotion to Jehovah and His principles/ commands, including our love for our neighbour (whether we personally like that one or not), (and not a religious label) which is key.
Thanks Spike. Simply put. Naturally, you and I disagree. I find this kind if thinking indicative of a cult, and having been a former JW myself, I can tell you that this effectively keeps JW's from developing friendships with non JW's...
As I said in my essay based on this quote/idea, you can substitute Jehovah for the Governing Body, because you can love Jehovah all you want, but disagree with one piece of dogma, like 1914, (which is wrong as the evidence shows) and you can love Jehovah and your fellow witnesses (Witnesses?) all you want, and you are still disfellowshipped.
Having said that, Spike, I know you will feel free to continue to support and defend JW's. I acknowledge your right as a sentient being to do this.
