negative talk and criticism
When they say negative talk and criticism they actually mean anyone that points out that one of their (WTS/GB) teachings are incorrect. I have personally in the past week just asked a pimi husband and wife if they could explain to me about the teaching of the WTS stating that the 70 years are from 607- 537.
I said , I am willing to accept that 537 is the 70th year, I just needed to know something first since we are told to make sure of all things before accepting as true. I asked if 537 is the 70th year then that would mean that 539 is the 68th year and according to the WTS, Jehovah called Babylon to account in 539 and according to the Bible Jehovah said he was going to call Babylon to account when 70 years have been fulfilled.
I simply asked based on that did Jehovah call Babylon to account when 70 years were fulfilled as he said he would or did he jump ahead of his own timetable by two years and call them to account when 68 years were fulfilled?
I went on to show the following:
[11-15-98 WT –
We know that Jehovah is the Great Timekeeper, and we have confidence that he never fails to fulfill his purposes at
his appointed time.]
[Jeremiah 25: 11 And all this
land will be reduced to ruins and will become an object of horror, and THESE
NATIONS will have to serve the king of Babylon for 70 years.”’ 12 ‘But when 70
years have been fulfilled, I will call to account the king of Babylon and that nation for
their error,’ declares Jehovah,]
[8-1-81 WT p. 27-28 – “The idol-worshiping Babylonians now were in line
for God’s judgment to be executed upon them. That happened in 539
B.C.E. when Babylon was overthrown by the Medes
and the Persians.”]
And I kid you not, this is part of the reply I got for asking that:
I do not wish to receive any more questions from you because I don’t feel they are really questions.. It may not be how you intend it but your questions to me seem more like negative accusations of incorrect teachings.
