Again Cleaning/Organizing my Huge Collection of jws books, I happened to go now pick up the 1990 Awake and stumbled on this March 22, 1990 page 27.
It is true that one cannot back out of a dedication to God. (Compare Ecclesiastes 5:4.) A person dedicating himself to God takes on a serious responsibility. He or she is obliged to “walk worthily of Jehovah to the end of fully pleasing him.” (Colossians 1:10) One engaging in gross wrongdoing even risks being expelled from the Christian congregation.—1 Corinthians 5:11-13.
Yet, one cannot reason that as long as one is not baptized, anything goes. For “if one knows how to do what is right and yet does not do it, it is a sin for him”—baptized or unbaptized! (James 4:17) One may avert formal expulsion from the congregation, but one cannot escape Jehovah’s judgment. “Make no mistake,” warns Paul, “there is no thumbing your nose at God; for a man will reap just the same that he sows.”—Galatians 6:7, Byington.
First off Read all these Verses and Got Jack Nothing to do with Baptism. And There is Nothing in the Scriptures about Dedication to do with Baptism.
Let's look at Ecclesiastes 5:4
When thou vowest a vow to God, delay not to complete it, for there is no pleasure in fools; that which thou vowest--complete.
So wait a minute read the whole chapter what does this chapter or verse got to do with now, it was under the old Testament law, and the beginning the chapter Has going to the House of God, and if we are gonna talk about a Vow Or Oath or Dedication , Did not.Mr. Annotated Jackson dude sit his A$$ over there in Australia under oath or vow to tell the truth on the Bible and Was Lying Through his Shoes. Oh yes That Vow on the Bible was the truth.
Also Remember the Beginning of awake had this in the front pages under Why Awake. Is Published.
This magazine builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 pass away
So Wait a secod according to jws own channel of communication says That that the creator promise but I guess the creator Himself got new light for himself, wow. Remember Dat Overlapping teaching in the Bible. This Sh$t is Comedy Gold.
Lets look at James 4:17
Berean Literal Bible
Do Not Boast of Tomorrow
13Come now, those saying, “Today or tomorrow we will go into this city, and will spend a year there, and will trade, and will make a profit,” 14who know not what is on the next day. What is your life? It is just a vapor, appearing for a little while, and then vanishing.
15Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord should will, both we will live and we will do this or that.” 16But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.17Therefore to the one knowing to do good, and not doing, it is sin.
Again Jack Crap about Baptism but wait all such boasting is evil, which Organization has the balls to make Videos what gonna happen in the future cough cough this last year.Annual Meeting, all those videos showing all this future sh$t is about the JWs and don't get be started.on those [email protected]#£ing Bunker videos. And Remember The Annual Meeting This is It. This is It my A$$.
And Colossians 1:10 already is a lie it says in Greek literal the Lord, and most commentaries and context would say this is for Jesus but for Sure 100 percent Jehovah is not in the text another lie.again nothing to with Baptism.
Berean Literal Bible
7Do not be misled: God is not mocked. For whatever a man might sow, that also he will reap.
I love how the jws don't quote the whole verse. Don't be misled. Again the Pot calling the kettle back. Don't be misled. So wait a minute all the crap and law suits and exposure the Organization is getting in the Past 20 years, Well I.guess you reaping what you Sow. Remember God is not Mocked. Well Unless you are the Jws who can change there crap ever Year.
Peace and Much love.
