............according to your "faithful slave masters" -
w10 1/15 p. 5 par 12 & footnote - "Jesus’ “other sheep” will not become sons of God until the end of the thousand years. However, (crap alert!) since they have dedicated themselves to God, they can properly address God as “Father” and can rightly be considered members of Jehovah’s family of worshippers." (They can call God 'father,' but God doesn't view them as 'children'? Very good logic, WT)
Here's Jesus', Paul's, and John's logic:
(Matthew 12:50) whoever does the will of my Father who is in heaven, the same is my brother......”
(Matthew 13:38) The field is the world; as for the fine seed, these are the sons of the kingdom;
(Mark 3:35) Whoever does the will of God, this one is my brother and sister and mother.”
(Luke 8:21) In reply he said to them: “My mother and my brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”
(John 1:12,13) However, as many as did receive him, to them he gave authority to become God’s children.........
(John 15:14) YOU are my friends if YOU do what I am commanding YOU.
(Rom. 8:14) For all who are led by God’s spirit, these are God’s sons.
(1 John 5:1) Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God..........(RSV)
One last WT reference to help remind JW's of their WT-imposed lower Christian status:
w08 1/15 p. 21 par. 8 - "Anointed Christians are declared righteous, because they exercise faith in Jesus' ransom sacrifice". In Jehovah’s eyes, (aka the org's eyes) they are acquitted of sin and can be anointed with holy spirit to be spiritual sons of God, brothers of Jesus Christ. They come into the new covenant and form a new nation, “the Israel of God.”
If exercising faith in Jesus' ransom is the requirement to be declared righteous in God's eyes in this life, then more than 8m r&f JW's cannot have faith in Jesus' sacrifice yet - otherwise they'd be "anointed."
Not to mention that they are also not part of God's nation - only the "anointed" are!
