Mark7:6-9 This people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshipping me, for they teach commands of men as doctrines.’ 8 You let go of the commandment of God and cling to the tradition of men.” 9 Further, he said to them: “You skillfully disregard the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition.
I do not see any thing special here to claim they are chosen. Ok they do not celebrate christmas....th elot.But what about disregarding the commandment of god ( john 13:35 true love; Gal 5:22,23 fruits of the spirit; Matthew 23:10 nto to be called leaders; ) The list can go on n on.
On the point of good leadership their own publication Watchtower 02 march 15th page 5 states "A good leader gives clear direction and helps people under his care to gain personal strength and resources so that they can solve problems successfully".
How can they claim to be the chosen one when they have been flip-flopping since they began??? Are they delivering what they wrote in the above watchtower reference?
"But I say to you that everyone that keeps on looking at a woman so as to have a passion for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27, 28 . Have they been openly confessing their child abuse cover-ups ;and where the donations for god's worldwide is going (to pay for lawsuits)??
Just a tip of the iceberg mate.If you get satisfying answers with bible verses hats off to that!
My two cents
