Thanks Blondie, and thanks also for including the scans of the article.
ch 2: After all, he had enjoyed intimate association™ with Jehovah for unknown aeons and had been God's "master worker" during creation. (Prov 8:30)
There is not one single reference to Jesus in Proverbs 8. The WT$ has hijacked the 'personification of wisdom' in Proverbs, claiming these verses refer instead to Jesus. This is done despite the fact that throughout chapter 8 and throughout the entire book of Proverbs wisdom is personified as a woman:
Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares (1:20)
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. (4:6)
On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud (8:2,3)
Say to wisdom, "You are my sister," and call understanding your kinsman (7:4)
Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars. (9:1)
ch 12: Moments later, he told Peter to put away his sword, thus showing that the source of Jesus' confidence lay, not in earthly weapons, but in Jehovah.
Another example of the WT$ twisting scripture to suit their purposes. The verse has nothing to do with Jesus' view of "earthly weapons". It was Jesus' entire earthly purpose to go with the mob that confronted him. This was his destiny and the fulfillment of prophecy. Of course he would not allow Peter to prevent it.
Did Jesus 'lack confidence in Jehovah' when he told his disciples to carry a sword?
He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. (Lk 22:36)
ch 14: Today, God has not given Christians the power to perform such miracles.
Where is the bible verse to support this claim? The WT$ did not include a scriptural reference. Perhaps because there is no verse to support the claim. I see this as the WT$ justifying their inability to exorcise the "demonz" that seem to plague so many of the dubbies.....
