#9 There are TWO classes of J.W's
More than 99% of J.W.'s worldwide are deemed by the Brooklyn hierarchy as not being righteous enough yet, and as such, are unfit to be called God's children - unlike the hierarchy.
They claim that the riff-raff will take another 1000 years to achieve the same degree of righteousness and Godly recognition which they have already been "blessed" with!
What the Org Says:
w10 1/15 p. 5 par 12 & footnote - "Jesus’ "other sheep" will not become sons of God until the end of the thousand years. However, since they have dedicated themselves to God, they can properly address God as "Father" and can rightly be considered members of Jehovah’s family of worshippers."
w08 1/15 p. 21 par. 8 - "Anointed Christians are declared righteous, because they exercise faith in Jesus' ransom sacrifice". In Jehovah’s eyes, they are acquitted of sin and can be anointed with holy spirit to be spiritual sons of God, brothers of Jesus Christ. They come into the new covenant and form a new nation, "the Israel of God."
w05 6/1 p. 10 par. 5 - "They (anointed) have been declared righteous as spiritual sons of God, and to them these words apply: "He delivered us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins." — Colossians 1:13, 14.
w04 11/1 p. 13 par. 17-"Those who successfully pass the final test after the Millennial Reign of Christ will be adopted as Jehovah’s earthly sons and "have the glorious freedom of the children of God." (Romans 8:21; Revelation 20:7, 9) In anticipation of this, they address Jehovah as their Father."
But What Does the Bible Really Teach?
(Matthew 12:50) whoever does the will of my Father who is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."
(Matthew 13:38) The field is the world; as for the fine seed, these are the sons of the kingdom;
(Matthew 25:40) To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me.
(Mark 3:35) Whoever does the will of God, this one is my brother and sister and mother."
(Luke 8:21) In reply he said to them: "My mother and my brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it."
(John 1:12,13) However, as many as did receive him, to them he gave authority to become God’s children.........
(Rom. 8:14) For all who are led by God’s spirit, these are God’s sons.
(1 John 5:1) Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God..........(Revised Standard Version)
Jesus said that the meek would inherit the earth. Therefore, all Christians will become joint heirs with Christ when he inherits his reward from heavenly Father.
Jesus addressed God as Father. How were all of his disciples to address God? (Matt. 6:9)
Jesus promised that he would have one flock of sheep, not two different "classes" with different hopes. (John 10:16)
