CAUGHT IN THE ACT OF LYING: True teaching cannot become Old Light if it becomes New Light again afterward.

    How will you know if you are doing enough for Christ's brothers?

    That's easy! They can tell by your visible service, of course! It's a tried and true method of weeding out imitation Xians. Why else do you think they have a "spiritual paradise", free from corruption and pedophilia?

    They can also suggest that JWs use a WTBTS owned Internet provider. Then the GB track websites and online donations. Surely that would help prove who the sheep are?

    Well said, Terry. Thanks.

    "The light getting brighter" does not work as an analogy, it is a piss poor attempt to cover up ineptitude and only fools would accept it as an answer.

    I think the reason Rutherford changed the meaning of the superior authorities to a heavenly one was because of the prohibition. He didn't want the worldly governments telling him that he couldn't drink, so he changed the meaning and stated that we obey god as ruler rather than men.

    ""In 1929, at a time when laws of various governments were beginning to forbid things that God commands or demand things that God’s laws forbid, it was felt that the higher powers must be Jehovah God and Jesus Christ. This was the understanding Jehovah’s servants had during the crucial period before and during World War II and on into the Cold War, with its balance of terror and its military preparedness. Looking back, it must be said that this view of things, exalting as it did the supremacy of Jehovah and his Christ, helped God’s people to maintain an uncompromisingly neutral stand throughout this difficult period." Watchtower 1996 May 1 p.13"
