May we make conclusion that both, Catholic and JW have "The Truth" about this issue ? :)))
This is interesting observation.
With this it is possible to see how some individuals are Naturally kind, good, humble, they let God to guide them through "His earthly servants" (who ever they are). :))
Also we can go with this: God "Created them in such Nature" and they don't need congregation, WT publications or even Bible to make them humble and to obey God or other people in "His service". They do not need to make special "efforts" to be in Line with God's will. They do this by Nature. :))
With other perspective (according to definition) something, many thing is/are wrong if we are "sheeple".
Definition of sheeple
: people who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced
Ha! Ha! Ha!
We are supposed to take the word of a disingenuous person that's track record is fabrication, good one. Show your proof and not just let out hot air. It stinks already. 😂
Try reading the book correctly. Russell mentions how the 144, 000 are part of the kings going to heaven. A prospect of him being one of them, not that he made a guarantee he was. No different with that of the GB, they have a heavenly HOPE. If you're going to distort Watchtower history like AlanF, at least try to appear intelligent.
I suspect you don't like education.
@Arauna I wish you would bet, as I think you would owe me money
Of course I have some idea of what goes on in the world. But it is the Devil's world, so should we expect anything different.
In some ways it is encouraging to see the immorality in that 'world'. It is only proving God's word as correct. Critical times hard to deal with. Having no natural affection. Giving themselves over to lust and homosexuality. It shows the need for God through Christ to intervene..
I only used the OCD as you love to use it so much when talking of others.
It certainly does make sense. After all, from the 1920s up through about 2013 JW leaders proclaimed that the entire worldwide body of "anointed ones" comprised "the faithful and discreet slave" which Jesus Christ "appointed over all his belongings" on earth in 1919. That, without question, fits the above bolded description. The current Governing Body claims the same thing for itself.
That the phrase "I am He" encompasses the GB's overblown claim is proved both by logical argument and by the Society's own 1964 argument.
But you are allowed to use fractions of human blood that other people have donated . I thought blood was sort of sacred and belonged to GOD. If so then I would have thought NO ONE has the right to rip it into pieces. So in line with that thought I would think no JW would want to 'steal' blood fractions that actually belong to God.
However it is possible that the scriptures actually meant not to literally drink blood, as it was the custom at that time.
