Dear JWs, Can an earthly organization, with its extended assets in buildings, monetary investments and its pitfalls; its legal branch, “governmental” branch, production branch, and all branches throughout the world, be the source of salvation for mankind? Acts 4:12; 17:24,25 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+4%3A12%3B+17%3A24%2C25&version=NIV Would our true source of spiritual salvation have any partnership in worldly interests? Matt 4:8-10; 6:19-21; Col 3:2,5 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+4%3A8-10%3B+6%3A19-21%3B+Col+3%3A2%2C5&version=NIV Can Jesus’ pure teachings remain untainted under the influence of an institutional structure formulated by men? 1 Tim 4:16; 2 Tim 4:3; 2 Pet 2:1-3 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Tim+4%3A16%3B+2+Tim+4%3A3%3B+2+Pet+2%3A1-3&version=NIV Where does wickedness thrive? 1 John 5:19; Matt 24:10-12; 2 Thess 2:9-12 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+John+5%3A19%3B+Matt+24%3A10-12%3B+2+Thess+2%3A9-12&version=NIV JWs, why do you believe God would bless an entity identical to other organizations in the world? Rom 12:2; 1 Cor 1:20 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rom+12%3A2%3B+1+Cor+1%3A20&version=NIV ORGANIZATION: “an administrative and functional structure (such as a business or a political party) the personnel of such a structure characterized by COMPLETE CONFORMITY TO THE STANDARDS AND REQUIREMENTS OF AN ORGANIZATION” Aren’t Christ’s standards and teachings enough, without polluting them with men’s desire to “organize”, twist and corrupt, what God has made pure? James 3:15,16; Phil 3:19 No organization in this world can be considered pure and unblemished, since Satan dabbles in all aspects of this world. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+3%3A15%2C16%3B+Phil+3%3A19++&version=NIV The light of Christ and his teachings cannot, and do not abide with the darkness of the world. John 8:12; James 1:27 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+8%3A12%3B+James+1%3A27&version=NIV By allowing an organization to motivate you and rule over you with its “organizational” standards, you allow Satan to corrupt the pure Word of God with the teachings of men, who are thieves and wolves in sheep’s clothing. Matt 7:15; John 10:9,10 You no longer believe solely in the Word of God, but a crooked version that robs you of truth, and of the glory of Christ. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matt+7%3A15%3B+John+10%3A9%2C10+++&version=NIV “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Cor 4:4 Please, do not think that the “preaching work” is a sign of success; that somehow God has transgressed His own decrees of purity and blessed the Watchtower, who’s doctrines change continually to cover over previous lies. An earthly organization formulated by men can never match the requirements of purity set by God. It can never be considered “Zion” as you are taught. To apply salvation to something created by man, is idolatry. Rom 1:25 But, there are people that God has chosen, who by submitting their hearts to be refined by Christ and his teachings, can reach that purity. 1 Pet 2:5,9,10; Mal 3:2,3; Rev 3:18 They are part of the true heavenly Zion, and God is preparing them to teach and serve all His children, in the Kingdom to come. Rom 8:19-21 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rom+1%3A25%3B+1+Pet+2%3A5%2C9%2C10%3B+Mal+3%3A2%2C3%3B+Rev+3%3A18+&version=NIV Phil 2:14-16; 1:9-11; 2 Cor 11:2; Heb 12:22; Rev 14:1; 21:2; 14:5 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Phil+2%3A14-16%3B+1%3A9-11%3B+2+Cor+11%3A2%3B+Heb+12%3A22%3B+Rev+14%3A1%3B+21%3A2%3B+14%3A5&version=NIV Jesus tells us how God expects us to worship Him.
