Jesus said they will know my disciples because the love among them. What kind of love? The love of Jesus which is self-sacrificing love. Yes, I am prepared to give my life for my brothers. This is love in action.
During the Rwanda genocide brothers hid other families from the other tribe under their homes in holes..... if they were found out they faced immediate death by machetti or gun.... this is self-sacrificing love amongst our African brothers.
Do the other churches in USA teach this kind of love?
Exactly! There is a united loving group of people all over the earth under the name of God- jehovahs people. The miracle is that they have unity despite being IMPERFECT. Just like old israel, dedicated to jehovah, individuals are imperfect and stumble like David and Solomon. God loved David - but he did not have hundred 100% of gods spirit all the time.
Jehovah can inspire a group of people to accomplish a purpose. Israel of old brought forth the messiah and provided the imputus for the first congregations despite all the problems had with them.
The nation of God today allows for jehovah to accomplish the preaching work and guarantee survivors (a great crowd) through armageddon. The slave helps us to understand our stance of neutrality and morality - which will be tested. Our faithfulness to Jehovahs kingdom government and its principles will be tested. The slave teaches us what we need at this time......to survive Armageddon.
If you have so much of gods spirit that you can quote scriptures in a sly way to sow doubt on others who may have gods spirit? ..... Whose will are you serving?
The facts are before you: there is a united nation for Jehovahs name - against all odds. They are preaching earth wide a kingdom government which christendom does not even understand to be a real government. Our members only vote by their loyal actions for gods government, whereas christendom are all voting for various political factions and even going to any war their leaders wish to embroil them in. As for the godless..... we know what the bible has to say about them.
You are always accusing GB of being dictators but this proves you wrong. Personal conscience is recognized. There are so many things which are left to personal conscience - such as blood reactions.
Personally, I think jehovah loves Turkey because he made them. It is the humans which use them for the wrong purpose. Just as humans misuse blood without the respect for the life it represents.
Yes, christiandom had a big role to play in the suppression and even the extermination of the "savages", especially in spanish south America. The wars between protestant and catholic took their toll in Europe just before the new world opened up. Christendom has a lot to answer for before jehovah.
I come from the stock of huguenots who fled from France to South Africa and started the wine industry there. They obtained slaves from Malaysia and some intermarried. Our language has many French and Malaysian influences which is different from current Dutch.
When I visited the Spanish fort close to Jacksonville, florida, I discovered that the Spanish massacred the huguenots who fled from France to Florida for religious freedom. The details were shocking.
Christendom's history is blood thirsty and oppressive of the people under its dominion. At the beginning of our organization these attitudes were not immediately stomped out. The brothers focussed on the other truths that were new such as the mortality of the soul, jehovahs name and so forth.
But thanks to jehovah we now have a miracle of unity and love all over the earth..... only Jehovahs spirit can allow people to make these drastic changes in their own hearts and attitudes. In South Africa it is very clear...... the brothers who take the lead are wonderful and mostly black..... trained in the scriptures.
The good thing, some people go first! 😊
I'm glad you agree. Your word manipulation needs some serious polishing.
Exactly, I'm still waiting on evidence without ex-witness manipulation.
It really would. It would prove more in the sense of facts, not self indulged fantasies.
Only because you claim to be. Not that you are. The thing about a good researcher, is learning how to do, good research. Since Russell's writings are exactly the ones I submit without bias.
