Jehovah`s Witness/The best thing for you Derrick!!

Question
Is to just keep your mouth shut you embarrass yourself more and more with every passing comment. Unfortunately for you I had a bit of spare time today so I read allexperts and came across your post. So I decided to respond, here it goes!!!

Answer
I'm not gonna address the constant whining and teeth gnashing on your part but what I will address is your lack of scriptural knowledge seeing as that's the only relevant point.

This is what Jesus said

John 2:

19 "In answer Jesus said to them: “Break down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 Therefore the Jews said: “This temple was built in forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was talking about the temple of his body. 22 When, though, he was raised up from the dead, his disciples called to mind that he used to say this; and they believed the Scripture and the saying that Jesus said"

Now as I said to my questioner he said the TEMPLE of his body,not his body but the TEMPLE of his body, he also said this.

Matt 12:

6 "But I tell YOU that something greater than the temple is here"

So he's referring to himself here as a temple , now unless you want to claim he was talking about his bloodless body being a temple or even his body if you want to stretch the point like this:

"But I tell YOU that something greater than the temple(my bloodless body/body)is here"

then you're argument fails

Now the point is the answer to my questioner is the correct answer,all I actually needed to say was this to make your argument fail.

"If the temple of Jerusalem was destroyed would Jesus have to build it back with exactly the same bricks, mortar and building materials for it to be the same temple"?? Or would it still be the temple of Jerusalem??

"If it was tore down and Jesus didn't rebuild it with exactly the same materials, would the Jews then say. "No sorry it's not the same temple, you where telling lies"??

"When Jesus said those words do you think the Jews where thinking he was going to build it back with the same materials it had before it was tore down or would they think different one's would be sufficent for his words to come true"??

Either way Derrick your argument is an EPIC failure!!! Both your so-called "proof texts" are EPIC failures!! EVERY so-called "proof text" you can bring to the table will be an EPIC failure!!

So Yes Derrick, Jesus, the temple, the chief corner stone was destroyed for three days and raised, just like Jesus said it would. The answer I gave my questioner is the correct one from the Bible.

So the lesson for you Derrick is, you are so far out of your depth here it's untrue!!!! If you insist on being on our board you will just continue to get shown up for the foolishness you talk. If you don't like it spew your nonsense elsewhere,instead of you and all those of your ilk whining on and on like small children,because you get crushed every time you start!!

Expertise

I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.

Experience

The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

Organizations
The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

Education/Credentials
False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
