Maybe it's complete in light of this Sundays WT study...“What You Vow, Pay”
It is all about paying your vows and especially focuses on three types.
1 Your dedication vow (baptism)
2 Your marriage vow
3 The Vow of Special Full-Time Servants
Here's where the dumbing down part comes in, the theme scripture.
The article quotes Matt 5:33 as “You must pay your vows to Jehovah.”
Remember that one friends?
Hmmm me either!
Let's turn to that in Gods holy word shall we?
What's that? You only have the NWT? No problem for this one.
Oh it's Jesus speaking here! Our king and master. Lets see what he says.
Wow. That's not quite the same thing as they indicate in the article. Why didn't they quote the rest of the scripture?
Lets continue in verses 34-37 to finish our Lords thought...
34 However, I say to you: Do not swear at all, neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne;35 nor by earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.36 Do not swear by your head, since you cannot turn one hair white or black.37 Just let your word ‘Yes’ mean yes, your ‘No,’ no, for what goes beyond these is from the wicked one.
"Do NOT swear at all? Anything else comes from Satan"?
Well then doesn't that just nullify the whole point of this article?
C'mon Watchtower! Do you really think the rank and file are that stupid as to not see this one? A scripture that we all know so well? It's from the sermon on the mount.
I guess come Sunday we will find out.
