Who do the elders expose their dirty dark secrets to? where do they go to wash their dirty linen? what about elders that rape little girls and still stand and preach?
The WBTS is no better, but far worse than any other religions, as all they do, they do so using Gods name to do it in.
Do they get off on other peoples misery?
What is legalism? legalism is the term used by fanatics and extremist religionists that everything one does, must be done so by means of works and rules.
They and the wbts use legalism to put burdens on people that God himself hasnt even asked for. It is when their opinion becomes your burden,because they are just all consumed with self, self explaining, justifying self, painting oneself to be pious. Legalism says you can get Gods grace and salavation if I say so, it also says if I can have fellowship with you or allow you fellowship with others, and thus, sadly, people no longer figure in on the equation of God, but that of man, and the words of God have become null and void because of their personal teachings and traditions. And this legalistic rhetoric can be seen in their publications such as their secret elders book, and the publishers book-all man made rules, man made extensions of Gods rules, but with a twist, just like the Pharisees. So, with friends like these, who really needs enemies?
The bible says Gods commands are not burdensome, so how do these people get off on making them a burden, and where does the authority come from to do so?
I tried to cut and paste the article here but couldnt, so here is a link for you if you are interested. You may find it highly interesting in what legalism means and how it is used.
