I guess there are many, but what would be the strangest teaching, or "wackiest" ?
What is the wackiest or strangest teaching that Witnesses adhere to?
The 4 kingdom rules by Christ.
1) Kingdom of his love since Pentecost. Col 1.
2) Kingdom of 1914 --100 years, birthday next month.
3) the 1000 Year reign as Priestly king, post Armageddon, soon.
4) the post-redemption eternal kingdom, after he handes priestly power back to God.
A rich plot, not forseen by the many bible authors.
To never die. Not only is it an insane concept, but it dramatically affects the choices a person makes in how they live their life, mostly in a negative way.
That was my thought too jwfacts!
Stunted life now, because of a hope of a better fairy tale ahead.....
I'm gonna go with the idea that Christ hung out in heaven from 29 CE to 1914 CE before he decided to take power.
Never understood why 144,000 is considered to be a literal number!
Because it represents life, blood is so sacred you can't use it to save a life...but you can use fractions even if those came from blood that was not poured on the ground...
Apogophos, it was from 33 ce to 1914.
The wackiest teaching is that to refuse life saving blood is appreciated by God who values life.
#2 is that they can't even say the word 'luck' because they are superstitious about it. But they pray to Jehovah for help and safety
which is luck, external manipulation of the probabilities in life, thus Jehovah is the God of good luck.
Oh, I don't know, maybe that they are the true religion. That's pretty wacky..
