    i'm a little rusty on scriptures lately (i'm learning to not give a damn about WT)

    anyway, i need someone to help me find the scritures where it talks about the ones responsible

    over us being double responsible for us. in other words if we fall because of the elders they are blood guilty

    thank you

    i don't know if there is a scripture with regards to what you are saying.

    I know there is a scrip that they use that says the elders should be as shade in a desert, shepherds blahblah....but then if they fail they use the "we are all imperfect and fall short of the glory of god" scrip,

    but you can use "you must be perfect as I am perfect" back at em....

    thanks, let's see if anyone can help me more specifically

    1 Tim 5

    3 Presbyters who preside well deserve double honor, especially those who toil in preaching and teaching


  • Narkissos

    Not sure what you are thinking of, but there is the stern warning to the disciples about "stumbling" little ones (especially non-disciples, as the context of the "independent exorcist" suggests) in Mark 9:42ff//.

    More related to the "elders/flock" relationship but also more vague is Hebrews 13:17: "Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls and will give an account."

    Actually, scripture is pretty clear that we will answer four our own sins, beleifs and such, there is no excuse of "following orders" or I was "told to do this", it falls on Us to TEST what we are taught to see if it is true, Paul mentions this a few times.

    heb 13: 17
    4 Obey your leaders and defer to them, for they keep watch over you and will have to give an account, that they may fulfill their task with joy and not with sorrow, for that would be of no advantage to you.
  • DaCheech

    i think and thank narkissos, I think that is the scripture I needed.


    anyway pass this scripture to all the ones that support the wrong that the wt and their elders have done

  • AnnOMaly

    James 3:1?

    "Not many of YOU should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we shall receive heavier judgment."

  • isaacaustin

    I think perhaps AnnOmaly got it.
