New Book: Pure Worship of Jehovah—Restored At Last!
Thank you Afterburner. It was very confusing to read the Greek scriptures that mentioned baptism with a JW understanding. None of them supported their interpretation.
With their viewpoint that the Greek scriptures were written only to the anointed, it's amazing that they even say that baptism is also for the other sheep.
Welcome Afterburn I love your analysis and think its an excellent post and am glad to have you on board .
I look forward to more of your posts here .
Sighing and groaning about the wickedness of the world.
You mean things like having xianity in its many forms (including the jokehovian witlesses) preaching a message that prepares people for communism? And, if you are upset about it, why do more of what is ruining this earth? Why preach that book that has been a curse on the whole human race for all these years, and has gathered so much energy from the people that they can now get away with anything? You get that bible, you practice anything in it, you are helping them do even worse.
At heart many dubs do not believe that the rest of decent mankind are to be slaughtered. My people deny fervently that the W T teaches it .
How can they deny it now?
Welcome Afterburn. Enjoyed reading your well constructed summary.
My simple Q & A for J.W.'s regarding baptism is this:
Q. Scripturally, what requirements are necessary for a baptismal candidate?
A. Acts 2:38; 3:19 - Peter said to them: “Repent, and let each one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for forgiveness of your sins, . . .
“Repent, therefore, and turn around so as to get your sins blotted out, . . .
Repentance has absolutely nothing to do with the J.W. dogma of "dedication."
On a side note how can a child repent of their sins?
