These are the conclusions I've come to recently in my Bible reading. I still have to investigate other lines of thought so they may change. But still having a fresh JW mindset it may help others
Q: How must we worship? What is truth or who has the truth?
A: (John 4:21-24 ) Jesus said to her: “Believe me, woman, The hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will YOU people worship the Father. .. Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshipers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for, indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit, and those worshiping him must worship with spirit and truth.”
-The Spirit is unseen one does not have to be in physical structure or a certain place that’s why Jesus said neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem but in spirit & truth. (John14:15-17)15 “If YOU love me, YOU will observe my commandments; 16 and I will request the Father and he will give YOU another helper to be with YOU forever, 17 the spirit of the truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither beholds it nor knows it. YOU know it, because it remains with YOU and is in YOU.
(John14:6) Jesus said to him: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. . . True Christianity does not have to mean belonging to one church or group. It is superior to the Law in that it is spiritual not physical. God’s spirit is evident among any individually or as a group exercise faith in Christ and display Christian qualities. Jesus said that would be love and being humble willing to learn like a child. Pauls writings gives priciples for good morals. Holy Spirit would be evident by the fruitage that results from genuine love & good works. Jesus was charitable he kept a money box for the poor, he cured, & provided food. See below for preaching work.
Q: What about Hebrews 10:24,25?
24 And let us consider one another to incite to love and fine works, 25 not forsaking the gathering of ourselves together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as YOU behold the day drawing near.
Anywhere one finds believers in Christ is a Christian. Learning about him when gathered with others incites one to love & fine works. You find fellow Christians to work good towards other based on love like charitable org. Or while gathered with others you are motivated to be a good person & imitate Jesus on your own. One can choose to belong to a certain church or find others (ex-JWs)who just like open discussion of the bible in any setting. Or one can be a Christian on their own and when in need of company go anywhere Jesus is preached. As JW’s we were told TV and internet is associating with others. So watch a broadcast, Skype, or use a social network.
(Matthew18:20) . . .For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there I am in their midst.”
(John10:7-10)7 Therefore Jesus said again: “Most truly I say to YOU, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All those that have come in place of me are thieves and plunderers; but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved, and he will go in and out and find pasturage. 10 . . .
(John10:14-16)14 I am the fine shepherd, and I know my sheep and my sheep know me,15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I surrender my soul in behalf of the sheep.
Wherever it is taught that salvation lies in that Christ came in the flesh to die for our sins and was resurrected is acceptable. Trinity or not the basic principle of Christ Sacrifice is there. If you go somewhere that does not sound like the shepherd’s voice to you leave & go somewhere else
1John 2:18-23 Was speaking of not associating with Anti-Christ those who deny Jesus outright or by their way of worship not those who sin in error. (Titus3:10-11)10 As for a man that promotes a sect, reject him after a first and a second admonition; 11 knowing that such a man has been turned out of the way and is sinning, he being self-condemned. These scriptures can can be applied to any religion that insists on it’s being the sole means of salvation when that designation only belongs to Christ.
Q: What about the preaching work?
House to house is not the only way as JW’s we learn that. (Acts17:17)17 Consequently he began to reason in the synagogue with the Jews and the other people who worshiped [God] and every day in the marketplace with those who happened to be on hand.
Paul visited Jews in their place of worship some churches allow for visiting speakers or public testimonials. Paul spoke in the marketplace while shopping you notice someone who needs direction in life or a hope offer to help them better themselves by teaching them faith in Jesus and practicing true Christianity.
(Acts17:19-20)19 So they laid hold of him and led him to the Ar·e·op´a·gus, saying: “Can we get to know what this new teaching is which is spoken by you? 20 For you are introducing some things that are strange to our ears. Therefore we desire to get to know what these things purport to be.”
Preaching work is done by speaking to crowds in public. Paul did it. There is little mention of the house to house ministry in Acts. (Acts20:20) . . .while I did not hold back from telling YOU any of the things that were profitable nor from teaching YOU publicly and from house to house. There are more references to Pauls preaching to groups than from house to house. House to house may have been a tool for Jewish or Middle Eastern homes since hospitality is so important in their culture. It could mean visiting homes of interested ones who had heard the public speeches. If house to house was to be the identifying mark Paul would have given counsel in regards to it in his letters. He just mentions ministry which is accomplished in a variety of ways. Like visiting Sweet Frog the workers shirt have the acronym Fully Rely On God.
As far as the good news being preached before the end it is happening. Christianity is being made known in so many ways. Jesus said no one knows the day or hour just be a good Christian and leave the rest to GOD.
In regards to overseers I’m still working on that. And I’m not convinced that making a living off bible based publications is wrong if you live by the essence of True Christianity.
