    Matthew9969 reacted to JOHN BUTLER in The Man of Lawlessness in the 21st Century   
    He stands in opposition and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits down in the temple of God, publicly showing himself to be a god.
    This has to be the GB of JW Org. They have exalted themselves above every other human on this earth. Above all of the true Anointed. Even to a point above Jesus Christ.

    Matthew9969 got a reaction from JOHN BUTLER in WHAT DID YOU LEARN THAT WAS NEW AT THE 2019 "LOVE NEVER FAILS" REGIONAL CONVENTION ?   
    I didn't go to the convention, but I can summarize what it may have been about and not what I learned but what I already know. 
    Love your neighbor as yourself, unless your neighbor professes to be a Christian. 
    You must love the governing body just as much as you love Jehovah, because they are Jehovah in a sense.
    No one else on earth has as much love as jehovahs witnesses.
    Kicking a 15 year old out of your house because they got baptized at 6 years old and started to question the governing body is the most loving thing you can do for your child.
    Jehovahs love for you is conditional on you loving the governing body.

    Didn't the watchtower teach at some point that black people were descendants of Cain?

    The watchtower has again redefined the word trinity to mean Jehovah, Jesus, and the governing body.

    Matthew9969 got a reaction from Witness in 1914   
    At this time, (and still), they called themselves the mouth piece of Jehovah and His only sole channel of communication to humanity. You are saying Jehovahs words are fallible and Jehovah is a false prophet.

I am looking at these watchtower articles that state if a woman is being raped, if she doesn't scream or try to get away, she is committing fornication. So following that messed up logic, if a 5 year old child is being raped, and they don't scream for help, does that make that 5 year old a fornicator?

    Hi Anna! Sorry for the delay in response. I am a little bit confused what you mean about complete obedience being in the minds of only some Witnesses. The Governing Body spells it out in their literature. Here are some notable examples:
    Since Jehovah God and Jesus Christ completely trust the faithful and discreet slave, should we not do the same? (w09 2/15 pp. 24-28) "We need to obey the faithful and discreet slave to have Jehovah’s approval." (w11 7/15 p.24 Simplified English Edition) "[A mature christian] does not advocate or insist on personal opinions or harbor private ideas when it comes to Bible understanding. Rather, he has complete confidence in the truth as it is revealed by Jehovah God through his Son, Jesus Christ, and "the faithful and discreet slave." (w01 8/1 p.14) I am not sure how much clearer they can be about their attitude. They expect complete trust and obedience in their direction. For Br. Jackson to suggest that JWs would see wrong direction and not follow it is disingenuous. The truth is that adherents have continued to obey the GB throughout its self-admitted history of erring direction.
    JWs are literally told that their personal views are valueless next to the direction of the organization: "He [a mature Christian] does not advocate or insist on personal opinions or harbor private ideas when it comes to Bible understanding." (Watchtower 2001 Aug 1 p.14) So, under what circumstances would JWs suddenly become aware that their personal ideas on the Bible have weight? Members are primed to put loyalty to leadership and the group ahead of their personal faith.

    1. why the need to count the number of hours, there is no biblical mandate to do so, however there is a mandate about boasting about your works.
    2. How many of those hours are just standing next to a cart and having your default witness as...'go to jw.org'.
    3. How hard can it be just standing there next to a cart?
