brotherdan I'm not talking about "fooled" JWs. I'm talking about those that realize that Jesus is NOT an angel. That he DID die on the cross for their sins.
One needs to confess, not deny. If you profess Jesus is not Michael or "a god" but God with us you will be disfellowshipped.
Anyhow, the battle lines are draw from both sides.
2 Corinthians 6:14-16 (New International Version)
Do Not Be Yoked With Unbelievers
14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
brotherdan Who is to say what doctrines are REQUIRED for salvation? For example, MUST I believe in the Rapture (which I do, by the way), to be saved? Is that a REQUIRED doctrine?
The rapture is not a salvation issue, just the issue of how we get from glory to Glory.
Jesus is THE salvation issue John 14:6, John 10, John 5:39-41 etc.
brotherdan Then why is it only alluded to in the bible? What about the belief of living on earth again one day?
All believers will live on the earth come Revelation 21 Revelation 21:2, Revelation 21:10
brotherdan Is not belief in Christ and his sacrifice for our sins the main doctrine of the NT and the basis on which all men should be saved?
Yes. The WT teach that but I still don't think JWs can be saved. Their faith is actually in the WT who self righteously proclaim to be the mediator for the "non-annointed". Even the "144, 000" have a counterfeit Jesus as their mediator.
1 Timothy 2:5 (New International Version)
5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus
brotherdan There are probably MANY things that we will see that we had wrong once we are in heaven.
Agreed. IMHO Jesus is certainly not one of them though.
Blessing in Christ,
