If all is inspired of God, then why doesn't the GB accept the deity and personality of the Holy Ghost in Acts 13:2,4?
2 ...the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabus and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
4 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost...
JWs cannot and do not answer the questions put to them which are based on the Bible. They sidestep to another topic or call names or use insulting language. WWJD?...certainly not be accepted as a JW in good standing
The point is this ..God said to 'work out your own salvation with fear and trembling...so why are you so critical of what someone else is working out...knowledge puffs up but love builds up...Jesus doesn't say the one who correctly works out who the Holy spirit is..is the one who is loved by me.

He says " the one who obeys my commandments remains in my love."

People tend to think they are something because they assume they have more knowledge then someone else, about something they have no influence over at all....where all that Jesus wants is us to be obedient to his commandments.

The point is JW's are not working out their salvation for they are simply robotically following what false teachers tell them. They are not obeying the commandments of Jesus as they preach hate for all others and as long as they believe they are superior to others they are not Christian.Lip service ia not good enough.

The fact is, Jehovah's witnesses are working out their salvation by preaching to others the only way for them to have life in the new world, this world is going, and everyone who is not a subject of God's heavenly government will go with it.

Daniel 2:44
Matthew 24:14

NO one is saved until you are on the other side of Armageddon, that means all Jehovah's witnesses must be
righteous to survive.
Revelation 7:14

Remember the Great Tribulation starts the great day of God Almighty, the end of Satan's rule of this earth forever. No one unrighteous will be allowed to live in God's new world, that means you must repent today and get your life in harmony with the requirements of Jesus for everlasting life.
John 3:36

Who's being critical? I'm just trying to put all the comments made by JWs into practice. The Holy Spirit is an extension of God. Is He/it a person or a power? Our understanding of God depends on how we answer.

If knowledge puffs up, then what is John 17:3 saying in the NWT when Jesus says, concerning all flesh, that everlasting life depends on their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.

If a denomination preaches a different God or different Jesus, then that would affect that everlasting life. Maybe the Baptists could give the JWs a good run for the money, but the JWs seem to broadcast how much they study in their KHs each week. But, the Bible clearly shows that going to God's house and studying is not the key to salvation. II Timothy 3:7: "always learning and yet never able to come to an accurate knowledge of truth."

You have contradicted your own version of the Bible.

Why can't it be BOTH??

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is POWER from on high..

And the Holy Spirit doesn;t speak according to his own initiative..whats a force like Holy Spirit doing with his own initiative???

I agree to take in knowledge ..and as it states of God the Father and his son..I don't find there we have to take in knowledge of any third person..

This is controversial because I would say 'Jesus sheep know his voice' so that brings it right down to an individual level..because you don't need another man to HEAR for you..if you belong to Christ... and everyone having the son..scripture tells us ' has this life'

So its not if the denomination has Christ ..its if you have Christ who is appointed for YOU.

I agree with that ...its putting Jesus words to affect in every part of our life..Jesus is not segregated to church meetings..

Sidebar!! ok, I know it can be frustrating sometimes to know who is pro and who is con on here, because of the way some texts are worded. I am con WTBTS; which are you? I see from your last post I agree with a lot of stuff. If you're con, then I've made a mistake and I apologize. So please let me know with Judgment Day honesty which it is. Thx

All of Satan's agents want to appear righteous and even holy, what else is new...you are in Satans world.

(2 Corinthians 11:13-15).&#8239;.&#82 39;.For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14&#8239;And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light. 15&#8239;It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness. But their end shall be according to their works.

No one will receive eternal life unless they are subjects of God's Kingdom government as Jehovah's witnesses, with Jesus as our reigning King in heaven today.

(Revelation 19:6-8).&#8239;.&#8239 ;.And I heard what was as a voice of a great crowd and as a sound of many waters and as a sound of heavy thunders. They said:“Praise Jah, YOU people, because Jehovah our God, the Almighty, has begun to rule as king.

Show me where it says that in the bible.

I don't believe that you can.

I believe that you have been listening to some false teachers.

I believe that someone came to your family's home sometime in the past with books from a publishing company that had that message in them and either you or one of your family members believed what they read in those books.

My bible says this:

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved
Mark 16:16

For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
Anyone who believes in Him is not judged, but anyone who does not believe is already judged, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.
John 3:16-18

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and will come in and go out and find pasture.
John 10:9

This [Jesus] is
The stone despised by you builders,
who has become the cornerstone.
There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.
Acts 4:11-12

Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved
Acts 16:31

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

HERE is a very interesting post .........

Nobody has to twist GODS words to make jws wrong ,when by their very OWN PUBLICATIONS and a little research ANYONE & EVERYONE can have ALL the PROOF they need to seeing with their own two eyes ( if they are honestly seeking Truth )the "SCAM"& LIES Jehovah Witnesses have been Proven to MISLEADING MANY ...
**********
Do you mind explaining this ???????

Let's not forget the FRAUDULENT "Beth Sarim",the Scam in which a MANSION of " TEN BEDROOMS ",during earlier yrs.of this DANGEROUS Cult of jws ,who had followers buy this huge mansion w/ the UNBELIEVABLE SCAM that 4 popular & carefully chosen prophets were to be RESURRECTED & brought back to life to live as Princes & kings in this huge TEN BEDROOM MANNSION W/The CHEATING PERVERTED JWS PRESIDENT "JUDGE RUTHERFORD "...

Keeping in mind this Whole Time the Cult followers were living poorly in their run down vehicles ,sold their homes waiting for the BIG SCAM of the Resurected FALSE prophets to be raised from the dead to enjoy the LUXURY OF The MANY RICHES cashed in by CONARTIST RUTHERFORD ,while the Cult followers barely even had food for their families due to RUTHERFORD'S SCAMS..

Let's add his TWO BRAND NEW VEHICLES he demanded be bought for HIMSELF WITH The DANGEROUS CULT OF JWS MONEY DURING A DEEP " RECESSION "...

WHAT a huge waste of money being Stolen from the Cult members who were forced to sell ALL THEIR ESTATES & BELONGINGS ,only to end up living like GYPSIES in their vehicles ,tents,cheap traveling campers,just to Line their Cult PERVERTED Leader,Judge Rutherford's EXPENSIVE POCKETS !!

Needless to say the SCAM was a complete FAILURE ,the "so called resurrected FALSIFIED PROPHETS ",NEVER CAME ....

While RUTHERFORD CONTINUED to "CASH IN"on the very poor & broken Cult followers ,living HIGH ON The HOG WITH TWO NEW CARS,MAIDS,LUXURIES OF ALL TYPES ,and the HUGE MANSION OF TEN BEDROOMS UNTIL his Death ....

This is not one of your better days and your opinion of someone you held in high esteem could be soured. You'd like to believe that maybe you had expected too much of them or hadn't allowed for human weaknesses, but deep down you know they let you down big time. You will likely feel rather flat and sensitive as a result. Take heart, at least it wasn't you who failed someone else - that would be worse.

This is exactly why Jesus said the blind will lead the blind. You do not want the light of truth from Jehovah's witnesses, therefore you will have to go with the darkness of this world when it is destroyed at Armageddon.

You have the Bible and yet you refuse to accept the direction given to you for your survival, that is your decision. You are fighting against the reigning King in heaven Jesus, as well as the united flock of sheep like witnesses.

(Revelation 22:17).&#8239;.&#8239; .And the spirit and the bride keep on saying:“Come!” And let anyone hearing say:“Come!” And let anyone thirsting come; let anyone that wishes take life’s water free.

Is that the best you can come up with when your Watchtower Society's doctrines are exposed to light from God's word?

The only light that Jehovah's Witnesses have to offer is a flashing light of flip flopping doctrines that go back and forth.

The clear direction from the bible is that Jesus saves everyone who calls on him in faith which contradicts what cults teach.

If you are confident that you are saved by the grace of God and you need not enter the ark of protection from Jehovah God and his King, then why are you all bellyaching about what is truth. Be happy you are saved and will gain your reward of eternal life in heaven with God.

Don't listen to Jehovah's witnesses, all we know is what the Bible says is going to happen to those who are enemies of God and friends of this world, and you have to be united as a flock to have the shepherd protect you.

My attitude is, if you are happy that is all that matters, more power to you, I am looking for people who are not happy, who are frustrated with this world and want peace and happiness forever, and I know only the meek will listen to my message.

The Christians on this baord are elading people liek you to Christ and away from the sinking ark of the Watchtower Society.

I'm sorry that you would rather enter into the Watchtower's ark of protection instead of entering i nto a relationship with Jesus.

However, that is a choice that you will have to live with.
