WHAT DOES A PERSON REALLY NEED TO KNOW TO BE ABLE TO SERVE GOD PROPERLY ?

The disciples of Christ had the Hebrew scriptures. Ah but they had more, they had the direct words of Jesus himself. They were also anointed of God's Holy Spirit.

So what of today ?  Well we have the 'Bible' 'in full', but translated by probably hundreds of different people, in many different ways. 

Most people (hopefully) have a reasonable education and therefore can read, and hopefully have a printed Bible available, or internet access. But what more is necessary ?  With Bible knowledge one can build faith in God, and with prayer one can upbuild that faith.  But what more is needed ? 

I'm asking because this forum is becoming an arguement centre of those that think they have superior knowledge. It's also becoming a place of insults and ridicule. Even some (so called ) JW's here are arguing with each other.   So, I'm asking, how much knowledge is realy important ?

We have the other problem of course. It would be realy good if people that lacked true knowledge about God and Christ could find truthful advice and teaching. But there is no 'God inspired' knowledge being given to anyone right now, or so it seems. Those arguing on this forum are quoting 'men' not God. 

There are scriptures that advise people not to argue over dates and times. There are also scriptures that tell us to be humble. And I keep looking for some 'spiritual' content on this forum but I see none. But then in the past I looked in JW organisation for spiritual content and found none. 

The idea of keeping awake and keeping on the watch has only led to false predictions. Each person 'keeps on the watch' in their own way. The JW org does the same. Time 'may' move along quickly soon, and we may find ourselves without any organised 'religion' then our faith will be between each person and God through Christ. However I have my own idea what will happen first, but for those that just put their faith in the GB and the Org, what will they do once it's gone ? 

Will any of the arguing on here upbuild your faith or mine ? I doubt it. I think it is the devil's way of dividing people that are looking to serve God. So i think it more important to be sure of the very basic teachings of God's word, not to be so worried about dates or years. I think if we live long enough we will know when the end is here.

      I had quit the JW Open Club, so as not to be a cause for dissension …. which if I am not careful I can take over a conversation … as TTH ALLUDED to that, and he was correct.
      Under the circumstances, I feel if I do not comment, it would solve at least 3 points of concern.
      I have been thinking about this for several days and decided it would be appropriate to “belong” if I only commented if asked a question, etc.,and not post cartoons.
      Basically, the same rules at the Kingdom Hall, except I will be courteous to anyone that is courteous to me, except that for d’fd people, not to discuss any theocratic issue or “what’s going on”, etc., realizing it is a double edged sword that should cut both ways.
      With all that in mind, I again request approval to join the closed club mainly as an observer.
      The open club has evolved into a bat cave of crazy people.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.
