Good thread , and lots of people have provided good insight . As one who has always been outside of the WT it is easy for me to see the difference in where they place their emphasis compared to where other faith groups place theirs .
The WT always stresses the importance of obedience to the org. , they have squarely placed themselves in between the people and God . They teach that Jesus is not the mediator for everyone . The preaching work is about God's future Kingdom .
All this is at odds to what the Bible really says . Jesus died on the cross for everyone . He alone is the way to salvation . " I am the Way , the Truth, and the Life .
The Good News that was preached by the disciples was about Jesus' atoning death on the cross and His resurrection , which meant that sin and death had been defeated
1 Cor 2 . : 2.
" For while I was with you I made up my mind to forget everything except Jesus Christ and His death on the cross "
Yes the question is " to whom shall we go" because the disciples realised that Jesus was the one to follow , not the priests or Pharisees aka the GB .
This is the word of the Lord , thanks be to God , oops sorry I thought I was ending a sermon ! Lol
