    A Question For Active, Current Jehovah's Witnesses (visiting this discussion board) Who Still Believe In The Bible And Are Still Searching For Answers...(Matt. 7:7, 8)

    We remember the Watchtower Society has long taught there are no INSPIRED persons on earth today, nor living in our modern times. Which explains their viewpoint concerning the Governing Body leadership today, saying they need not be inspired to correctly lead the congregation of God's People today. This we know.

    Therefore, a few questions to consider:

    According to the Bible, all throughout it from Genesis to Revelation, we constantly see Jehovah provided much needed INSPIRED LEADERSHIP in the first century and in ancient times (like in the days of Moses, etc.) for His people because they needed it. And yet are we to believe He refuses to see the same need of providing INSPIRED LEADERSHIP in our day and time, during these days of much confusion, danger and peril that we constantly face? Does this make sense to you? Also, does this seem consistent to you, especially in view of what Jesus promised his disciples at John 16:13, 14?

    How could we be rightfully expected to succeed in our mission as Christians and make it in this ungodly world as we know it, without INSPIRED LEADERSHIP?

    ...Any comment you wish to make would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Observer

    Are you saying the the WTS Governing Body says they are inspired?

    I take it that this is the question. I'm not sure what you are actually asking, if I'm honest.

    I'd ask:

    • Are you saying someone on Earth is inspired?
    • Are you saying Christians are the true religion?
    • Do you actually think there is a god?

    Not meaning to sound aggy, but I'm unsure where you're coming from.

    Can you (not being sarcy) show me egs of inspired leadership from Genesis to Revelation? I would really like to know how different people come to that conclusion!

    Thank you all.

    Welcome to the forum Ronin!

    Certainly Jesus would vouch for the apostles as well as all the prophets.
