At meeting yesterday a thought came to me - my mind was wandering most of the session as it was so boring - about how the JWs say that God will put it into the hearts of the political leaders to overturn religion at the start of the great tribulation. They also claim this about maneuvered events in the OT too.
JWs also claim that when someone has the right heart condition, they come to find Jah. Such as if they prayed to find him and then a pair of JWs arrive at the door and they become ecstatically joyous that God directed them. Or like the watchtower yesterday about the hand of god helping us supposedly when we pray.
My point: If God - assuming he exists - can maneuver hearts to come to goodness, then why can't he manipulate people to come to love him? Why is he going to make essentially milions of people suffer and experience the pain and suffering of the Great Tribulation if he can just as easily maneuver things for good? I know, I know, free will yadda, yadda. But how is that free will since he only wants to be worshipped by his standards or you end up doomed to destruction?
Just something I was pondering on wondering if this is all a BS scare tactic story doomsday religions like to spout to keep people loyal. 😀
