This has all probably been discussed before but :- The Question is, What do we NEED to serve God properly ? I'm sure there are lots of different opinions. But there has to be some very basics. The right heart condition is needed. The ability and willingness to pray to God. A Bible to read and study. Some basic true facts about who God is and who Christ is. To know that we need to pray through Jesus Christ when praying to God. To adjust our life to 'conform' to God's standards as best as we can. I think that is the basics. SO, the next question has to be, Where do we go from there. I suppose once we have some true knowledge about God and about his purpose then we would need to want to pass that information on to others (preaching / teaching ) BUT there is the rub. 'Once we have some TRUE knowledge about God' And that is where the problems start. @Space Merchant is a man that studies many different religions and has his faith based on core doctrines from God's word. But he also does a lot of very deep studying to prove that his faith and beliefs are correct. On the other hand, Jehovah's Witnesses teach that a person must become 'one of them' to serve God properly. And JWs generally do not do such deep personal studying. They tend to believe what their Governing Body / Writing Department print in the Watchtower magazine. @JW Insider is one of JWs, but he 'does not hold fast' to all their teachings. In fact he makes known some of the problems in the CCJW. TTH and Arauna seem to believe all that the CCJW teach, or, they are prepared to 'put up with it' until 'new light' appears from the CCJW. Could that be counted as putting their faith in men ? But how many Non-Trinitarian religions are there ? And how does a person know which one is the 'true' one ? In fact how long would it take a person to research and contact them all ? Or, could a person be a lone Christian ? Could a person pray for direct guidance through Holy Spirit to gain true understanding ? One needs to have true understanding for oneself and to teach others. We know that the Judgement will be on each of us individually, but how do we know the right path to take now ? #servinggod #servinggodproperly #servingjehovah
