Good Evening Cofty,
How about this example of the place of faith. This is from "Imitate their Faith" published by JWs. It refers to the Baal Worshipers v Elijah ultimate god-match on Mount Carmel (live on SKY). It was the subject of much nodding and head shaking at the mid-week meeting last night.
19 “Jehovah is the true God! Jehovah is the true God!” they cried out, all of them. (1 Ki. 18:39) At last they saw the truth. However, they had not as yet shown any faith. Frankly, to admit that Jehovah is the true God after seeing fire fall from heaven in response to a prayer is not an impressive demonstration of faith.....Those men were well beyond the reach of mercy! So Elijah ordered that they be executed, and executed they were.—1 Ki. 18:40.
20. Why are the concerns of modern-day critics about Elijah’s execution of the Baal priests unfounded?
20 Modern-day critics may decry the conclusion to this test on Mount Carmel. Some people may worry lest religious zealots use it to justify violent acts of religious intolerance. And sadly, there are many violent religious fanatics today. However, Elijah was no fanatic. He was acting on Jehovah’s behalf in a just execution.
So, if you have just seen fire from heaven you can't show faith the existence of the "true god" has just been demonstrated to you. Therefore you have no faith, therefore, it follows You Must be Killed! "Elijah!". "Yes Lord". "SLAUGHTER THEM! they have no faith"
Some one else can explore the logical fallacies of that one, I can't get my breath.
