I was thinking recently about a fundamental scripture that JW's base their religion on, Matthew 24:45-51. Although I now know this is basically a parable they have interpreted as a prophecy, a more interesting question came to mind that I'm going to ask the elders if they ever show up again (they promised to investigate the UN situation and get back to me - that was about 3 months ago).
If Jesus is really the ruling over the christian congregation since 1914 and Matthew 28:20 is true, WHY does he need to turn over all his belongings (i.e. authority) to men. What was he going to be doing that he couldn't do it himself? Does the fact that he is invisible mean he needs to leave something visible for us to follow? One scripture the elders kept using was John 4:24, that god is looking for ones who worship him in spirit and truth. They emphasized truth (meaning they are the only ones who have it) but why would we need to worship in spirit if we were going to have something visible to look to.
I was just wondering if anyone else has ever thought about this?
