Weymouth New Testament

So we shall no longer be babes nor shall we resemble mariners tossed on the waves and carried about with every changing wind of doctrine according to men's cleverness and unscrupulous cunning, making use of every shifting device to mislead.

Barnes' Notes on the Bible

LIKE CHILDREN--

That we henceforth be no more children - In some respects Christians "are" to be like children. They are to be docile, gentle, mild, and free from ambition, pride, and haughtiness; see the notes on Matthew 18:2-3.

But children have other characteristics besides simplicity and docility. They are often changeable Matthew 11:17; they are credulous, and are influenced easily by others, and led astray,

In these respects, Paul exhorts the Ephesians to be no longer children but urges them to put on the characteristics Of manhood; and especially to put on the firmness in religious opinion which became maturity of life.

Tossed to and fro

3. wIND OF DOGMA

And carried about with every wind of doctrine - With no firmness; no settled course; no helm. The idea is that of a vessel on the restless ocean, that is tossed about with every varying wind, and that has no settled line of sailing.

So many persons are in regard to religious doctrines. They have no fixed views and principles. They hold no doctrines that are settled in their minds by careful and patient examination, and the consequence is, that they yield to every new opinion, and submit to the guidance of every new teacher.

The "doctrine" taught here is, that we should have settled religious opinions. We should carefully examine what is truth, and having found it, should adhere to it, and not yield on the coming of every new teacher.

We should not, indeed, close our minds against conviction. We should be open to argument, and be willing to follow "the truth" wherever it will lead us. But this state of mind is not inconsistent with having settled opinions, and with being firm in holding them until we are convinced that we are wrong.

No man can be useful who has not settled principles. No one who has not such principles can inspire confidence or be happy, and the first aim of every young convert should be to acquire settled views of the truth, and to become firmly grounded in the doctrines of the gospel.

Jehovah has everything under control.

If you don't like the way he's doing things, that's your problem.

He doesn't need your approval.

So, based on this noo-lite, Jesus is the mediator ONLY for the governing body?

I see the faux jos on here are pulling a Sparlock. "This is apostate material", "the gb didn't say this", "I am butt hurt "apostates" know more than I do before I know it is real".

GET OVER IT!

Your gb just took what little part of jesus you had away from you and your salvation rests in being bound and in obedience to 8 men in NY.

The Governing Body doesn't need His or Jesus' approval either.

Once again I'm not a bitch. Just because God deprived you of a dick doesn't mean he didn't give this gift to others. You want to talk to me in person on Skype and set the record straight once and for all?

After that, you can suck my dick. That will substantiate things.

How do you like that for manners?

DM,

This is the way to deal with them. Or else you won't last here.

Don't let any faceless and nameless posters judgments get to you.

No it doesn't. That means I'm no more obligated than anyone else to rise to any kind of standard.

So, to prove that you "found" this information, and that you're not, as suspected by the obvious fact that you ALWAYS provide links, someone who is INSIDE the Watchtower's headquarters, sending out the INSIDE INFO, as an aid to "666".

Let's bust this "Myth" wide open!

Not questioning the authenticity of your "findings", just questioning that you actually "FOUND" them.

Hiya,

All he/she (mythbuster) is is a person who has managed to weasel their way onto an all witness discussion forum and has copy and pasted a post from a member of bethel that was at the annual meeting.

The information is correct and is from quite a reliable source. The information is actually quite good from a JW point of view. The faithful and discreet slave information is actually much more understandable and explainable and I completely agree with it.

It just goes to show that they are not afraid of changing viewpoints if they make more sense in relation to the scriptures. This information provides no problem for true Christians whatsoever.

Ps. If you would like to know how to easily get this information as and when it comes and you are a real JW then please private message me.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
