David H. Splane: The “Slave” Is Not 1900 Years Old (Matt. 24:45)
Quote from linked post:
David Splane's new video declaring, among other things, that there was no Faithful Slave for 1900 years, and there may not have even been any genuine anointed ones during those years
This is clearly a heretical teaching, falsified by Jesus himself.
and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world - Mt. 28: 20
The word "always" is Strongs # 2250. It describes this word in part thusly:
the time space between dawn and dark, ... reckoned by the Jews as inclusive of the parts of both extremes); figuratively, a period
Jesus was simply saying that he would be with all believers from the dawn of the church age until the darkness of the last days immediately following the rapture.
The Mormons teach the EXACT same thing as the JW's..... that there were no true believers (from the 3rd century ) until their guy (Smith instead of Russell) showed up to get all the false Christians straightened out.
Tell your JWs that they needn't worry about remember all of this New Light info as it will, without doubt, (or even with doubt haha) change in the future -- tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, of when all these current GoDs die. But it will most certainly change. Doc
So Jesus spoke to his 12 disciples about an entirely future matter that had absolutely nothing to do with them, whatsoever, and had everything to do with the leadership of an obscure cult that would come into being in the 19th century and would be headquartered in New York, USA. Really?!
There are few examples in the religious world, of such stupendous delusion and narcissism on the part of cult leaders.
