Why Do JW's Ignore the Preaching That Jesus Commanded?

    Another topic in the FRIENDS section was about a convention talk titled "Who Are Preaching the Good News of the Kingdom"? It brought several thoughts to mind.

    Of course it is only Jehovah's Witnesses doing that because most everything they do is in disobedience to Jesus. Yes, Jesus did talk to the Jews about the Kingdom. It could have been theirs. They could have been the priests of the world, but they rejected him. So, did Jesus change his command regarding the preaching message after the Jews murdered their own God? Yes he did. This is the Christian message that the JW's ignore to their own destruction, from the risen Jesus Christ:

    Acts 10 -

    "And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

    Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

    Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

    And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

    To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. "

    So, the final instructions from Jesus wasn't about the Kingdom per se, it was about the coming judgment AFTER A PERSON DIES and how it is Jesus who is the judge of the living and the dead and how those that trust Him receive remission of sins.


    This is just the opposite of the Watchtower preaching message which open declares that their followers are not justified (do not have their sins forgiven).

    w.38 p.104,105

    33 The Jonadabs, or “other sheep”, are in a different

    condition. The Jonadabs have fled to the Lord and

    there found refuge. They are still human creatures,

    not even justified, because the receiving of life everlasting

    depends upon their faithful obedience within God’s organization

    True enough. Their message is that Jehovah conferred ruling authority upon Jesus in 1914. And that God's Kingdom will remove all of mankind's problems--war, poverty, crime, sickness, etc. and vindicate Jehovah's name. Hmm. That IS different!

    Perry, if these are your core beliefs, very well then.

    But not anymore than a JW can count his time on this forum are you really accomplishing YOUR ministry here on JWN. You want to go to the marketplace with a bullhorn, have a great time. We will be here to hear how it went.

    I agree totally. What it also means is that the Governing Body views themselves as the only ones in their church that has their sins forgiven. The rest of the rank and file must do what they say in order to get their sins forgiven. This is "another gospel" unknown to Christianity.

    this makes so much sense! ...when you take it out of context.

    there are so many scriputres that show that the jews as a whole were rejected but a remnant of them would be chosen to be heavenly preists with christ, then the samaratans, then the gentiles.

    idk what point you're trying to make anyways. jesus said "preach", we preach. sry if you don't understand that :P pretty simple stuff
