When Jesus spoke of love, it was not in the context of reforming (bettering) the world with it. If that would have been possible then he would have/or would be planning to do so in the future.<quoted text>
But I don't see any just or merciful God caring that a person votes or gets involved in trying to make a difference. That would get you disfellowshipped in the Watchtower Society. It would be covered under the rules of love:
Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.
If we are serving in government for the betterment of all mankind, that is loving them. That is the will of God.
In fact, Jesus was a perfect example for all Christians when he himself did not get involved in politics, although he could have easily, as the people wanted to make him King. And what an amazing king he would have made! Imagine all that love. But that was not God’s will. Would it be logical if he wanted those who imitate Jesus, i.e. his followers (Christians) to get involved in governments? They would not be imitating Jesus if they did.(God’s will for Christians is to preach HIS government (the Good news of the Kingdom), and teach them how to become subjects of that Kingdom).
The role of the Kingdom is not the reformation (betterment) of everyone either, but of only those who want to be reformed by it and eventually to remove those who do not.
The evil in the world will not be conquered by love but by means of God’s Kingdom.
No earthly government will ever conquer evil. No matter how much love there is in the world some people will not change. God knows that. Only Gods’ government will conquer evil, by removing it and those who cause it, as per the scriptures I quoted in the earlier post.
Also, when Peter was talking about love, he was not talking about reforming the world. He was addressing the Christian congregation,(the house of God) reminding them to keep themselves separate from the nations and to stay morally clean. To love each other would keep them from being critical of one another because with love, they would be able to look over and forgive each others “sins” and stay united instead of keeping grudges and causing disunity etc. Cross reference Proverbs 10:12 “Hatred stirs up trouble; love overlooks the wrongs that others do”.(CEV)
So, JWs do not vote as they have already cast their votes for God’s Government, the only answer to mankind's woes.
