Do not be afraid. I will help you.—Isa. 41:13.
Jehovah purposed that his people proclaim the good news on an unprecedented scale in our day, and nothing can prevent him from accomplishing that purpose. Just as he delivered the ancient nation of Israel from Babylon, Jehovah has rescued his present-day servants from “Babylon the Great,” the world empire of false religion. (Rev. 18:1-4) He has taught us for our own good, has blessed us with peace, and has helped us to impart his teaching to others. (Isa. 48:16-18) This does not mean that Jehovah exercises his foresight so that he knows and then influences every development on earth in order to advance the Kingdom-preaching work. Some conditions have favored our witnessing activity, but only with Jehovah’s help have we been able to endure such situations as persecution and other hardships that make it difficult to carry out our commission in this world that is lying in Satan’s power.—1 John 5:19. w15 2/15 4:2
So today's text and comments tell JW's NOT to be afraid in carrying out the preaching work because Jehovah will help them!
Well, if that's the case, why don't we see JW's preaching in Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea, etc.??? What do they have to be afraid of - after all, Jehovah would be sure to help them, right? Furthermore, just as Jesus is described in the bible as taking the lead in preaching, shouldn't the Governing Body be imitating Jesus and doing the same, especially in countries which are the most hostile towards the activity of JW's?? ?
Since none of this is happening, I can only come to the conclusion that the JW way of life is a farce as they have failed to practice what they preach and lack faith in their god's ability to protect them. JW's say "Do not be afraid", but by their actions (or inaction) show that they are indeed AFRAID! ! !
