Incorrect! The Watchtower doesn't make opinions when it comes to scripture and applying it there of. Therefore, twisting words doesn't matter with such an opinionated argument.

In my opinion :)).., WTJWorg do make opinions about Scripture. Otherwise, decades of "clarifications" and "new lights" and changed or modified doctrines would never have happened/occurred ..... recurring error/false doctrines.

Quoting @César Chávez . 

"People cannot just claim to be of the anointed, if they haven't lived a solid Christian Life. That would amount to being a "false prophet" that line themselves as the Pharisees did. The Pharisees were looking out for their own interest, NOT Gods.

God has standards that must be kept."

This is so funny. Does he not realise that his GB 'just claim to be' the Faithful and Discreat Slave ? Yet they have sins piled up so high that the world can see them.  God has standards, he says. BUT the GB and it's Org do not keep God's standards. There is so much proof of Child Sexual Abuse in the Org, caused by rules made by the Leaders of the CCJW.  So much proof of lack of love, lack of mercy, lack of understanding by the GB and all in authority in the JW Org, right down to the Elders of the congregations. 

Remember that the GB's Lawyers deliberately tell lies in court rooms. The GB's rules have kept Pedophiles hidden in the CCJW for years. And what has happened to that 20 plus year Data Base that they had hidden > Has it now been destroyed ? Will the new President legalise Pedophilia and the GB get away with all their wicked deeds ? 

The GB are not looking out for God's interests. If you cannot see that then you are deliberately blind. 

I don't think anyone is keeping God's true standards right now, but most of us are not pretending to be the F&DS and not pretending to be Anointed.

But @César Chávez you obviously don't think before you write. 

Come on. You say that 'God has standards that must be kept'. And I agree with you, hence i left the CCJW because they were not keeping God's standards. 

As for my personal crusade. That is funny. 

Are you so blind as not to see how your GB and it's Org are being investigated EARTHWIDE. Um, not exactly MY personal crusade then is it ? 

As for being held back. It is JWs that are being held back by a GB that admit to not being inspired, whilst saying they are the F&DS. Um, strange contradiction, but JWs don't see that.  You follow and serve a group of 8 men that are not inspired, but that just guess and tell lies. They make false predictions, just like false prophets of old.

Wt says that it is necessary to teach resurrected ones, to bring them to up to speed.  Don’t ask me what that means. 

I now know what it means.  

This video revealed a clip from a talk given by David Splane at an assembly.    @4Jah2me, I transcribed David Splane’s pretend conversation to God's prophets from the past; "as if they (GB) are addressing children", as the video brings out.   

“No Abraham, that child does not need to be circumcised."

“David, you’re not a king anymore.  If you want a glass of water, you’ll have to get up and get it yourself.”

“Samuel, I know you’re grateful to be resurrected, but we don’t offer animal sacrifices anymore. So please, put that knife down and leave that bull alone”

While these three were inspired by God, David Splane is inspired by his own foolishness; just when you think their (GB) stupidity regarding the power of God, could get any worse.

"But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. 19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, 20 and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. 21 Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. 22 For Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. 23 Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from their people.’

24 “Indeed, beginning with Samuel, all the prophets who have spoken have foretold these days. 25 And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’ 26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”  Acts 3:18-26

Psalm 110

Of David. A psalm.

1 The Lord says to my lord:

“Sit at my right hand
    until I make your enemies
    a footstool for your feet.”

1 Cor 15:25; Heb 1:13

 

Rom 4:6-8 - "Just as David also speaks of the blessing of the person to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

7 Blessed are those whose lawless acts are forgiven
and whose sins are covered.
8 Blessed is the person
the Lord will never charge with sin."

Who said to David Splane that King David lost his title given by JHVH ??!! 

 

After King David heard what his namesake said, the reaction was this.

King David ordered his guard: Throw him into prison!  :))

It is so sad, that these men do not exalt Jesus as David did; but instead, exalt themselves.  (Ps 110:1)   David will always be exalted.  Rev 3:7;5:5; 22:16

As for the inquiry into CSA, it is usually the intention of the inquiring institution to help establish better policies, to protect children, not to ban or persecute Jehovah's Witnesses. As you know, this involves many other establishments, not just JWs. So I would say this would not be considered an attack. Some of the advice was considered very good advice and JWs have taken that advice on board, as long as it did not go against Bible principles. 

Essentially some of the points I have made before. This is the same thing that a child aid group (which also deals with child abuse prevention and teaching), which explains a bit of my absence, I am a part of have been preaching, they want to deal with the problem itself, not destroy a community to tackle the problem because they know going about child abuse recklessly can result in ill consequence.

Whilst trying to tackle the problem of child sexual abuse earth wide seems like a good idea, it has to be realised that CSA will not be removed completely in this wicked system of things. Many people 'in the world' do not have a Christian conscience or good intentions, so CSA will continue to happen.  However, if a person believes that they are in the 'true' religion then the best they can hope for is that CSA will be removed from that religion.  That means the leaders and those in authority within that religion MUST HAVE a good Christian conscience, and MUST have good intentions.  Unfortunately it has been proven that the GB of CCJW and many JW Elders do not have either a good Christian conscience or good intentions.

    • Definitely should try the Bond roll here when you get a chance: this is a mom and pop place that does a great job  
    • An interesting concept, bible discipline. I am struck by the prevalence of ignorance about spiritual discipline on "Reddit." While physical and mental disciplines receive attention, the profound impact of spiritual discipline on a person's physical and mental well-being is often overlooked. Is it possible to argue against the words of the Apostle Paul? When he penned those words in Hebrews 12, he was recognizing that there are moments when an individual must be "rebuked" in order to be corrected. Even Jesus himself established a precedent when he rebuked Peter and referred to him as Satan for failing to comprehend what Jesus had already revealed to the apostles. Did that imply that Jesus had an evil heart? Not at all, it was quite the opposite; Jesus had a loving heart. His need to correct Peter actually showcased his genuine love for him. If he hadn't cared, he would have let Peter persist in his mistaken ways, leading to a fate similar to Judas'. There is a clear emphasis on avoiding the apostate translation and its meaning, yet many seem to overlook the biblical foundation for the reasons NOT to follow the path of the fallen brethren or those with an apostate mentality. Those individuals have embraced the path of darkness, where the illuminating power of light cannot penetrate, to avoid receiving the righteous discipline based on God's Bible teachings. They are undoubtedly aware that this undeniable truth of life must be disregarded in order to uphold their baseless justifications for the unjust act of shunning. Can anyone truly "force" someone or stop them from rejecting a friend or family member? Such a notion would be absurd, considering the fact that we all have the power of free will. If a Witness decides to distance themselves from a family member or friend simply because they have come out as gay, who is anyone within the organization to question or challenge that personal sentiment? It is unfortunate that there are individuals, both within and outside the organization, who not only lack a proper understanding of the Bible but also dare to suggest that God's discipline is barbaric. We must remember that personal choices should be respected, and it is not for others to judge or condemn someone based on their sexual orientation but should be avoided under biblical grounds. No one should have the power to compel an individual to change their sexual orientation, nor should anyone be forced to accept someone for who they are. When it comes to a family's desire to shield their children from external influences, who has the right to challenge the parents' decision? And if a family's rejection of others is based on cultural factors rather than religious beliefs, who can impose religious judgment on them? Who should true followers of Christ follow? The words of God or those who believe they can change God's laws to fit their lives? How can we apply the inspired words of Paul from God to embrace the reality of God's discipline? On the contrary, how can nonconformists expect to persuade those with a "worldview" that their religious beliefs are unacceptable by ostracizing individuals, when God condemns homosexuality? This is precisely why the arguments put forth by ex-witnesses are lacking in their pursuit of justice. When they employ misguided tactics, justice remains elusive as their arguments are either weak or inconsistent with biblical standards. Therefore, it is crucial to also comprehend Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 9:27. The use of the word "shun" is being exaggerated and excessively condemned by those who reject biblical shunning as a form of punishment. Eph 5:3-14 NIV 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person — such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible. The impact of the message becomes significantly stronger when we emphasize the importance of avoiding any association with unrighteousness and those who remain unrepentant. In fact, it becomes even more compelling when we witness how some individuals, who dismiss biblical shunning as a method of discipline, excessively criticize and condemn the use of the word "shun". Therefore, Jehovah's Witnesses do not shun people; instead, they choose to focus on the negative actions being committed, which is in accordance with biblical teachings. This should be construed as ex-Witness rhetoric. Now, let's consider why ex-Witnesses specifically target one particular religion. What justifications do they provide when other Christian denominations also adhere to the same principle grounded in the Bible? Chapter 1 - Preface Both must therefore test themselves: the one, if he is qualified to speak and leave behind him written records; the other, if he is in a right state to hear and read: as also some in the dispensation of the Eucharist, according to  custom enjoin that each one of the people individually should take his part. One's own conscience is best for choosing accurately or shunning. And its firm foundation is a right life, with suitable instruction. But the imitation of those who have already been proved, and who have led correct lives, is most excellent for the understanding and practice of the commandments. "So that whosoever shall eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup."  It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any; if his communication of the word is out of vainglory; if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour: if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives. "For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children."   (from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2) Divine promises 2. The manner of shunning, in the word escaping. There is a flying away required, and that quickly, as in the plague, or from a fire which hath almost burned us, or a flood that breaketh in upon us. We cannot soon enough escape from sin (Matt 3:7; Heb 6:18). No motion but flight becomes us in this case. Doctrine: That the great end and effect of the promises of the gospel is to make us partakers of the Divine nature. (from The Biblical Illustrator)  
    • Clearly, they are already demanding your exile. Yes! It's unfortunate that Pudgy spoiled a great discussion about science. I hope the discussion can continue without any more nonsensical interruptions. Just a suggestion since they are on your heels. Wow! You speak! It seems you have a lot to say! Now they are going to treat like, who do you think you are, mister big stuff! Are those aliens now going to imply that anyone who speaks out against the five or six key contributors to this site will be treated as though it is George just because those in opposition speak the language they hate to hear, the TRUTH? They are seeking individuals who will embrace their nonconformist values and appreciate what they can offer in shaping public opinion contrary to the established agenda of God and Christ. Their goal is to enhance their writing abilities and avoid squandering time on frivolous pursuits, mainly arguing about the truth they don't care for. They see it all as a mere game, even when leading people astray. They believe they have every right to and will face no biblical repercussions, or so they believe. They just want to have fun just like that Cyndi Lauper song. Be prepared to be belittled and ridiculed, all the while they claim to be angels. Haha! By the way, please refrain from using the same language as George. They appear to believe that when others use the same words, it means they are the same person, and they emphasize this as if no one else is allowed to use similar grammar. It seems they think only they have the right to use the same or similar writing styles. Quite amusing, isn't it? See, what I just placed in bold, now I'm George, lol! Now, let's leave this nice science thread for people that want to know more about science. I believe George left it at "Zero Distance."
