If Jesus allowed Peter to carry a sword for protection, why are the Jehovah's Witnesses against carry a weapon during their "fun" door-to-door adventuring? It seems Jesus did not mind that Peter carried a sword if we read Luke 22:36-38
Is it another case of picking and choosing what works for their man-made doctrine?
Is defending oneself a violent act, according to the Jehovah's Witnesses? Not to Jesus and Jehovah.
Are the Jehovah's Witnesses in disagreement with Jesus in regards to this topic?
Do they not follow the Bible to a tee?
"Deuteronomy 20 contains Yahweh's instructions about war. If a city does not accept Israel's offer of peace and open its gates, then "when the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it" (verse13). With regard to other cities, the command is (verse 16), "Do not leave anything that breathes.""
"....The Israelites destroyed with the sword every living thing in it - men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep, and donkeys" (Joshua 6:21). This certainly seems brutal and vindictive, doesn't it?
Or consider Joshua 11:20, "For it was the Lord himself who hardened their hearts to wage war against Israel, so that he might destroy them totally, exterminating them without mercy, as the Lord had commanded Moses."
