It is true but you must follow the Bible and Gods laws to live eternally and only JWS know what the truth is.
But I have been "converted". I am doing what the WTS says.
I need a real JW I guess here. It seems that maybe only they can continue the argument with their twisted logic.
Sister KLS, do you mind if I come on your bible study with you? After all, you need a brother around so he can open and close with prayer, right?
So Shaun, I hear you're doing really good in the month that Sister KLS has been studying with you.
You're making fine progress in attending the hall and answering up in the Watchtower.
I think you should enroll on the "Ministry School", so you can teach people about the kingdom more effectively. I've also noticed that some of your terminology is not yet fully compliant with the "Pure Language" TM . You mentioned the Second System there, and that should be the New System. Maybe you'll pick more of this up when you start studying the Knowledge Book, as the Require Brochure is only really a starter, ya know?
Maybe if you continue making such fine progress and your hours on the ministry are up we could consider you for Baptism at the Circuit Assembly in the Fall. By then you'll have studyed for at least five to six months, and that would be more regular,
After all, as the dear brothers and sisters have informed you, we need to take in " accurate knowledge", and that doesn't come overnight.
But we're very pleased with you. Maybe you'd like to join me in Field Service this weekend, and I can help you with your magazine presentation. It's vitally important that we get these life-saving publications into the hands of the householders!
Shawn ,to try to get into the mind of a real JW is hard because their thoughts are so twisted and their come backs make no sense.
It is all about the WT and their way of thinking which is their way or no way.
This was fun .
People DON'T need the JWs for Salvation.... far from it. Jesus preached the "good news" and he always kept it simple ... somebody quoted the following from Matthew as if it would prove the JWs had the "truth".... but if you look at it, it is AGAIN very simple, as it came from the Savior:
(Matthew 25:34-41) 34
"Then the king will say to those on his right, ?Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world. 35 For I became hungry and YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and YOU received me hospitably; 36 naked, and YOU clothed me. I fell sick and YOU looked after me. I was in prison and YOU came to me.? 37 (love your neighbor, help those less fortunate)
Then the righteous ones (those who love their neighbors) will answer him with the words, ?Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you?? 40 And in reply the king will say to them, ?Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me.? (Jesus considers all of us as siblings, and heirs to the Kingdom of God)
Double, I hear what you are saying but I am trying to practice a method for opening the eyes of JWs. They are not going to hear your argument. You need to make the question their beliefs while not telling them they are wrong.
kls, I guess we have a stalemate. Neither of us got anywhere. That sucks. I was having fun though. I need to practice more and get a "JW" that has more "training".
Ah well, ya missed yer chance for the evening.
I have to go out.
LT "ex-Elder" class.
Can I experience "Eternal Life"?
Only if you start taking Prozac, and now.
They are not going to hear your argument. You need to make the question their beliefs while not telling them they are wrong.
(Sidenote to Shawn... "You got it, baby!")
