Trying to precis your long post, I quote the following:
Alan Wrote : They declare that anyone who publicly disagrees with their opinions is also disagreeing with God, and therefore is an apostate.
YK replied : That’s because they blaspheme God by denouncing those whom God appointed over his household. Remember, Satan’s criteria for God’s servants and Jehovah’s are two different things entirely. Satan is the Accuser who accuses us night and day before God. Jehovah is not nearly so harsh in his judgments. And those two points of view are reflected in the contrast between faithful witnesses and apostate dubs. The bottom line is, that just because the faithful slave may err or misinterpret some prophecies, of have premature expectations, does not mean that he does not have an appointment over God’s household. That is pure apostate bull manure.
The whole premise for your argument throughout this thread, and many others that you post, seems to be based on the WTS having the correct understanding of the Greek expression ‘parousia’.
The WTS claim that an invisible ‘presence’ of Christ occurred in 1914, that the House Of God was judged at that time and found, after a brief period of discipline; worthy of his sole attention. They claim that this word ‘parousia’ is more correctly translated 'presence, than ‘coming’, and upon this foundation they build the beliefs for millions of souls.
If the WTS, when inheriting this doctrine from Nelson Barbour, made an incorrect interpretation of the scriptures containing this word, an action you yourself admit could have happened, and given that the same misconception seems to have laid low the apostles in the C1st, albeit over different issues; you must accept that it is absolutely essential to have a correct understanding of this Greek word.
Now, it is incumbent on yourself, given the repetitive insults you heap on many posters on this Board who disagree with the views of the WTS, that you prove, using your Bible only, that the WTS is indeed correct in its interpretation of this word.
I am well aware of course of the understanding that W.E.Vine places on the word ‘parousia’, which is largely similar to the WTS. Given that his Expository Dictionary was published in the 40’s, before a truly accurate understanding of the ‘koine’ Greek expression was researched, and also given his own Brethren / Adventist heritage and his expectation of a culmination of all things within his lifetime, please note that his comments would need to be very well proved.
Remember W.E. Vine was the man who first applied the understanding that the League of Nations was being pictured by a beast in the Revelation, nine years before the WTS.
Of course I do not disagree with all he has to say and agree wholeheartedly with his conjecture in his book 'The Church And The Churches', that centrally organized churches are an evil never designed by Christ. But I digress!
I appreciate that you may have limited time on your hands to attend to your opponents, and I would just re-iterate as I have done on other occasions, that I am not your opponent. You have of course every right to believe exactly what you like, within the Law. I would just ask that the tone of you reply be as dignified and reasoned as one would might expect from a representative of the Christian faith.
Thank you -- HS
