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.
They harp on the Catholic Church abuses to prove their point. They ignore the millions of bible believing Christians who had no leader but Christ & who were the objects of Papal hatred.
