To acquire spiritual strength and the ability to face the future as an integrity-keeper, a Christian must have a good knowledge of Gods Word.<quoted text>
I guess Watchtower cult members are not considered deserving.
Please look up the scriptures you cite. Notice they don't support your contentions?
That is because your cult has lied to you. They have Dup'ed you into believing whatever they say even though the scripture does not actually support it.
By means of the Scriptures, our loving heavenly Father has given us an indispensable guide to happy living and an incomparable source of spiritual strength. Gods Son certainly appreciated the life-sustaining value of his Fathers Word, as can be seen by his quoting it and saying in answer to one of Satans temptations:It is written,Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every utterance coming forth through Jehovahs mouth.(Matt. 4:4)
We cannot expect God miraculously to grant us knowledge of the Bible. In order to have a good grasp of Gods Word, we have to expend time and effort in studying the Bible and meditating on what we learn from it.
Due to human imperfection, very few of us have a so-called photographic memory that might enable us to remember everything we study. But if we have made a serious effort in studying the Bible, we can rely on Jehovahs spirit to bring to our mind Scriptural thoughts that will provide the guidance and encouragement needed to face various trials and the information required to defend our faith.
Jesus assured his disciples:When they deliver you up, do not become anxious about how or what you are to speak; for what you are to speak will be given you in that hour; for the ones speaking are not just you, but it is the spirit of your Father that speaks by you.(Matt. 10:19, 20)
Gods modern-day servants in different parts of the world have endured long, hard trials of faith. These Christians, who have triumphed over trials, are just ordinary men and women like all of us. But their complete reliance on God has enabled them to endure tremendous hardships. Indeed,the power beyond what is normal is Gods and not that out of themselves.(2 Cor. 4:7) w80 8/1 p. 10
