i've using the JW way of thinking EG its not in the bible/ Jesus never did it/ bad things are recorded as happening in the same account. I've come to the conclusion then that the bible says it is wrong to swim. Think about it...
Jesus is never mentioned as doing a couple of quick lengths! in fact there is a noted story about him walking on water ( note on the water not in it)
any story in the bible involving people being in the sea normaly involves peril or death. Pharohs army, Paul being ship wreaked, Jonah.
When the Israelits needed to cross the red sea, god split the red sea, note he did not tell them to swim it!
Therefore using this JW reasoning we must conclude that Christains should not swim. Those that do swim are displeasing Jehovah and will be marked/ " volenterly Dissasociated"
of course this is a spoof, but what else can you think of to apply the warped JW reasoning to?
...What about horses?? In the new testement Jesus on earth never rode a horse, however he did ride a donkey, even Mary his mother! the only mention of Jesus riding a actual horse is in heven, when he rides a spirtual horse. Therefore we must conclude that riding horses is bad, after all don't we want to follow in the footsteps/ hoof marks of Jesus? Horses themselves are only meant for heaven.
