Another vomit-inducing study article. Would just like to highlight a few paragraphs from it (Blondie would probably do a more in-depth analysis as usual):
9 First of all, Jehovah reveals the truth about himself. He reveals his personal name, which appears more times in the Bible than any other name. In this way, Jehovah draws close to us, letting us know him. (Jas. 4:8) Jehovah also reveals his qualities, the kind of God he is. While the observable universe makes manifest his power and wisdom, Jehovah also reveals through the Scriptures his justice and especially his boundless love. (Rom. 1:20) He is like a father who is not only strong and wise but also fair and loving, making it easy for his children to have a close personal relationship with him.So God is fair & loving. Yeah. Let's go on further to see if that is really the case
Additional points: God reveals his personal name in the Bible. Right. Apparently, he did it in such a way that this so very important name became unpronounceable & forgot to do it in the New Testament!
JEHOVAH PROTECTS AND SAFEGUARDS USIf I am a loving father & my faithful children were really precious to me & I have the power to do so, I would save my children in any situation, NOT depending on the situation or depending on which children! If I can be better than this God who is being described, then something must be really wrong!
15 Certainly, one of a loving father’s priorities is that of protecting and safeguarding his family against any possible harm or serious danger. Jehovah, our heavenly Father, does no less. Of Jehovah, the psalmist says: “He is guarding the lives of his loyal ones; he rescues them from the hand of the wicked.” (Ps. 97:10) Consider an example. How precious your eyes are to you! That is how Jehovah feels about his people. (Read Zechariah 2:8.) How precious God’s people are to him!
16 One way Jehovah protects his people is by means of his angels. (Ps. 91:11) One angel saved Jerusalem from the invading Assyrians, destroying an army of 185,000 in one night. (2 Ki. 19:35) The apostles Peter and Paul as well as others experienced angelic deliverance from prison. (Acts 5:18-20; 12:6-11) In our day as well, Jehovah’s hand is not short. A headquarters representative who visited a branch in Africa reported that political and religious conflicts had devastated that country. Fighting, looting, raping, and killing plunged the land into chaos and anarchy. Yet, none of our brothers and sisters lost their life in that case, even though many of them lost all their belongings and their livelihood. When asked how they were faring, everyone, with a broad smile, answered: “All is well, thanks to Jehovah!” They felt God’s love for them.Another example of cherry-picking. We all know that in Malawi, brothers & sisters lost their lives & many sisters were raped. If it is said that God loves his people according to this experience above, then it can also be said that God loves Malawi people less & is not impartial!
17 Jehovah has on occasion allowed enemies to take the life of a faithful one, such as Stephen. Yet, God protects his people overall by providing timely warnings against Satan’s crafty acts. (Eph. 6: 10-12) Through his Word and Bible-based publications from his organization, we are helped to see the truth about deceptive riches, immoral and violent entertainment, misuse of the Internet, and so on. Clearly, as a loving Father, Jehovah looks after the safety and well-being of his people.Question: Is God partial or impartial to his loyal servants? According to the first sentence in the paragraph above, God is NOT impartial as he is selective in showing favor even though all instances involve his faithful worshippers. This goes against the Bible teaching which says that God is impartial to all!
I also have a problem with this statement: "God protects his people overall by providing timely warnings against Satan’s crafty acts." Right. Failed date predictions are NOT timely spiritual food!
Additional points: Is spiritual food more important than physical food? Can you eat a Bible? If I am in a situation which requires immediate physical help, how can God's choosing NOT to help me in the obvious way but giving me "spiritual food" instead help me in my situation???
