Judaism is far different from Christianity. Beliefs mean little to nothing. Stevie Wonder Boy asked a question about halacha, the Law, and I have given him an answer. Simple.
I didn't make up the answer. There is just nothing in halacha that forbids the whole "collecting wood" thing, and that is the closest I could provide on the dilemma of this text because of the difference between halacha and these verses.
What do I believe about this? Nothing really. Belief is not required and since there is no law involved here I have no investment. So it isn't possible to rationalize on something I don't have an investment in.
The problem comes with many ex-JWs being exposed to the "belief" paradigm that is central to Christianity. It just doesn't exist in Judaism. Beliefs in Christianity are just static mental concepts, often about abstract things that are supposed to be transcendent. You have to assent to these to belong to Christianity and if you doubt even the most abstract of them you can be excommunicated. We don't really have that in Judaism.
You might not like halacha or how it is applied here, but all you can do is argue about it with a rabbi or specialist on the subject.
Again, no on the Devil's Advocate thing. I was merely asked a question and I answered it. If there's a hole in an argument I point it out sometimes, but the main reason is to help Witnesses who may be secretly reading threads to come to better skilled conclusions.
