    Are people being resurrected just so they can be executed?

    Yes, it would appear so. After all Ol' Tight Pants Morris needs to get his heavenly kill quota in doesn't he?

    He uses the past tense. He speaks of those who “did good things” and those who “practiced vile things.” This indicates that these actions took place before their death. That makes sense, does it not? After all, no one will be allowed to practice vile things in the new world. The unrighteous must have practiced these vile things before their death."

    This is indeed a significant change. Too bad for all those JW's and EX-JW's who committed suicide thinking that they could pay for their own sins just by dying. Do you think the GB will apologize for lying? Even in death, JW's are still getting ripped off by the Governing Body.

    This JW lady killed her whole family and left a suicide note and a video stating that she was sorry for this but it was the only way she could save her family. Her thinking was obviously based on old light.

    She made a video of herself saying that she was “broken” and that she didn’t want to burden her family. She left a suicide note on the dinner table, tidied up the house, texted a relative and her husband's boss, and turned over the family photos on a secretary desk.

    Then, she ended it all.

    “I took my husband and kids with me so they don’t have to feel my selfish act. They will sleep until Christ resurrects them,”

    Too bad she couldn't hang on until the new light came along. The WT is a deadly cult.

    I am reminded of the adage 'Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic'

    Yes, arwen... it is incredibly sad. The WT erroneously taught for decades that a person could self atone for their sin just by dying in Romans 6: 7. They further taught that anyone who died had already paid for their sin and could then be resurrected into paradise to play with panda bears. That is apparently all gone now.

    In this chapter 6 of Romans, it talks about how when a person comes to trust Christ alone, they enter into a kind of death. "They are buried with him in baptism", "our old man (personality) is crucified with him", "reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ"

    The WT changed the verse to read that he that has died is acquitted of their sin. This gives the impression that some kind of trial takes place when a person dies and he gets acquitted. This of course is nonsense because if true, it would mean that Christ died for nothing.

    What Romans Ch. 6 is saying is that for those who enter into the new covenant with Christ, (the one in Mt. 26:27-28 that the WT denies to its members) they are deemed to had died vicariously with Jesus on the cross. Since, only Jesus can atone for sin, he then imputes his righteousness and right to life into the believer.

    Romans 6: 7 for he that has died [with Christ on the cross] is freed from sin. - KJV

    The heretical idea that a person can atone for their own sin has been the ultimate hope of JW's for decades.

    If you look at the statement from this pioneer sister at the end of this video, she exclaims that "our sins are forgiven when we die". It is at the 6:12 mark.

    Why resurrect those practicing "vile" things in the past, just to judge them for such in the future? Either they are worthy of a favorable judgment, or it would be completely stupid to waste the time and energy resurrecting them only to have to destroy them.

    those resurrected to life on earth will be judged “according to their deeds

    But if you are the lucky ones to go to heaven.,you don’t have to go through that except that you cannot enjoy sex or gender or physical pleasures.

    The idea of people getting resurrected to life on earth is a foreign concept to Christians and is not biblical. Do you have a biblical reference to back up the WT idea of an earthly resurrection?

    I would call that overkill.
