Essential For Salvation

    I read a post yesterday regarding 'salvation', and it contained a Watchtower reference from the 1980s which said that the 'other sheep must not forget' that their salvation is dependent upon their association with God's visible organisation on earth.

    I forgot to make a note of the reference, and despite using different search words, I cannot find the Watchtower on the CD ROM. Can someone please help me find this particular statement?

    Many thanks for your efforts.

    Maybe it is one of these.

    "Similarly, Jehovah is using only one organization today to accomplish his will. To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it." Watchtower 1983 Feb 15 p.12

    " Only Jehovah's Witnesses , those of the anointed remnant and the "great crowd," as a united organization under the protection of the Supreme Organizer, have any Scriptural hope of surviving the impending end of this doomed system dominated by Satan the Devil." Watchtower 1989 Sep 1 p.19

    "To ensure their salvation, Noah and his family needed to exercise faith. This meant following instructions and the leadings of Gods holy spirit. During the great tribulation, it will be just as imperative that we follow the leadings of the holy spirit and obey Jehovahs instructions through his organization." Watchtower 1991 Sep 15 p.17

    Thanks JWFACTS - these are worthy of noting too, but the quote I saw went straight for the jugular by stating that salvation is dependent on staying close to the Org. So much for ignoring Psalm 146:3!!
