    I don't know if anyone knows, or can know, everything. I have reason to believe that no one does, and no one can. But absolute certainty would require me to know more than I think it's possible to know. Hence why I assumed you were making a joke.

    But at the end of the day I love the Bible and think it is the word of God and I don’t see any other religion that comes as close to what Jesus describes his true followers or who are fulfilling Mat 24:14.

    Have you ever wondered why the apostles didn't teach "the good news of the kingdom" ?

    God gave the apostles and Christians the "ministry of reconciliation".

    And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation - 1 Cor. 5: 18

    Why did God give the apostles the ministry of how to be reconciled to God instead of the good news of the kingdom?

    Galatians 1: 8-9 says twice that if we preach a message other than what the apostles taught, we are cursed.

    New Testament occurrences of the term Gospel of _______ .

    Gospel of Jesus Christ (or Christ ) – 12 times

    Gospel of God – 7 times

    Gospel of the kingdom – 4 times

    Gospel of peace – 2 times

    Gospel of the grace of God – 1 time

    Gospel of your salvation – 1 time

    Gospel of the uncircumcision – 1 time

    Gospel of the circumcision – 1 time

    Gospel of his Son – 1 time

    Christians believe that the ministry of reconciliation through Jesus' Blood Covenant "for the forgiveness of sins" is the primary message during the church age.

    After the church is removed from earth at the rapture where they "meet the lord in the air" (1 Thess. 4: 17), the message will be changed to "the good news of the kingdom" and will be preached by 144k male Jewish virgins during the GT after Christians are gone.

    While Catholics and 1/3 of Evangelicals believe the Kingdom is symbolic(amillinnial), 2/3 of Evangeicals believe in a literal Kingdom on earth (Millinnial Reign) just as JW's do.
