It also says that he preached publicly to Jews and Greeks. Verse 26 says he is not bloodguilty because he preached to all people. Different translations of the bible make these points more clear. Of course he's talking to early Christians, but he is telling them about his public preaching to all people..........Ones like you will do anything to have a clear conscience......not so......you are bloodguilty.....and lazy.

The WT doesn't need to announce God's Kingdom.. The Bible does it pretty plainly.. All you need is a bible, prayer time and an open heart to Find God's Kingdom.. No affiliation with ANY organization or Church is necessary to find it.
The bible tells about the kingdom clearly????????..No. People vote for man's government. JW's are the only ones who propose God's Kingdom Government. We don't vote for man's rule because it doesn't work. Idiots like you will keep voting for man's rule every 3, 4 years, with no success.

That's what they claim. Claims, however, do not necessarily equate to factual information.
As in your case, faith is dead without works.

AHA! Now I see why JWs sit on their dead ends at election times and never try to do anything to change a bad situation....just sitting in the rocking chair, waiting for the Kingdom (which already came, didn't it?). Don't you realize that, whether you cast a vote or not, you are helping to elect the one that wins.

By the way, do you pray for the elected officials, as the Bible says you are to do?

Have you by chance read the whole new testament? Mt...3:2, 4:17, 4:23,5:3,5:10 etc... Mk..1:15, 4:11, 4:26, 12:34...etc..Luke, John, Acts, Rom, 1 Co, Gal, Eph, Col, 1 Th, 2 Th, Heb, Jas, 2 Pe, and finally, Revelation.

Governments have nothing to do with ATTAINING God's Kingdom.

Read your bible.

True. I didn't mean to imply Jesus had said that. I know it was Paul.

We pay our taxes to this world, but we do not support this worldly, ungodly world. Never would we trade allegiance from God to man. Mans rule never works.......look at our unsettled world........ww. We don't pray for elected officials, why? They don't support Gods righteous kingdom. God's kingdom will be in the heavens, ONE government ruling over the earth.

Of course. He is preparing his apostles and older men, to be on guard against the wolves. Purpose:: To protect the flock.......30, 31 say to keep awake and follow my example, it was never Pauls example to quit preaching to the flock.

Verse 28 says to pay attention to themselves so they donot become discouraged BY THE MISLED POPULACE. HE SAID TO PAY ATTENTION TO ALL ALL THE FLOCK, NOT JUST ELDERS.........PEOPLE WITH A GOOD HEART CONDITION.
ALL FOLLOWERS OF JEHOVAH WOULD COURAGIOUSLT PREACH THE GOOD NEWS HAPPILY.

. What you don't comprehend is that he was building up the the Shepherds..( Older men ..elders..in the Cong..) And explaining to them that he had done this. If you recall ..the lost sheep of Israel were pretty much gathered in one place.. There for the whining that..(.She got more then I did.. When it came to distribution of necessities.) Note..that necesssitated the apointing of some of those that weren't doing the preaching work to ses that supplys were distributed properly.. AS the apostles were to continue the preaching work... HELLO!
WHY??? because they were appointed by Christ.. To do that.. As he he did... We are.. NOT...them.

You don't pray for elected officials? I Timothy 2:1-3:
1-I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men;
2-For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3-For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

My faith is in the God that inspired Paul to write these words to a pastor to share with his congregation.....doesn't say much for those who claim to be the only true believers and yet disobey these words.

Matthew 24.
14.And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

You need to look back to the verse you skipped out watch tower Nomi?

11.11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

I have continually asked for just one verse of Holy Scripture to support this teaching of the watch tower,
"we must identify with the watch tower and serve God as part of that organization to have any hope of living forever on paradise earth?
You who falsely accused me of posting non Biblical teaching!

Tell me Nomi,what verse I need to read to verify this teaching of the watch tower?

Every true Christian has a Christian responsibility to tell people about the coming destruction at Armageddon and to support Gods Kingdom. 1 Cor 9:16,17.........Heb 13:15.........That is the unifying factor of Jehovahs Witnesses.........Do you think we do this work for our health? It takes love to keep going and Gods spirit refreshes us in this activity. If you had ever experienced preaching, you would feel rewarded, refreshed and glad that you did. That's why we do it, without JWs........no one would know gods name. As yesterdays apostles, our elders take the lead in preaching the Good news of the kingdom. No one gets full rewards by staying home.....the activity is priceless and encouraging.

What kind of love was it that drove the false prophets of the watch tower to make failed prophecy's ?

Deuteronomy 18.
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass , that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken , but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Here is what God says about the watch towers false prophets.

Deuteronomy 18.
20. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

"While inclining to view the pronunciation "Yahweh" as the more correct way, we have retained the form "Jehovah" because of people's familiarity with it Since the 14th century. New World Translation, Jehovah's Witnesses, foreword p 25)

You write..Quote...That's why we do it, without JWs........no one would know gods name.

The watch tower disagrees with you!

The watch tower added the name Jehovah 237 times in the nwt!Truth is,it is not mentioned even once!
