“To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some”. 1 Cor 9.22
"Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Matt 5.25
1) Would anybody care to explain the meaning of these scriptures?
2) If Paul was willing to be all things to all men in order that they may be SAVED why wasn’t the GB then willing to be all things to the rank & file JW in regard to the Swaggart friend of court matter? In plain english: regardless of the arguments as to to whether or not the GB’s actions were sound legally - in choosing to go ahead with their friend of court strategy in the Swaggart case the GB would have known full well that the consequences of pursuing that strategy, if disclosed, would be the stumbling of many brothers and sisters ( due to rank & file JW naturally PERCEIVING that the GB was getting into bed with the Swaggart - BabylontheGreat crowd ). Despite knowing that many brothers and sisters were going to be stumbled when they found out about this the GB still proceeded with their involvement in the case – prove to me that that isn’t first degree bloodguilt?-SolidSender
