Jehovah`s Witness/Derrick Holland in denial

Question
Bro. DW,

This bit from Derrick Holland made me smile:

"That bodily resurrection thing just isn't going well for you guys."

To me it sounds like a person who is in denial. Having been explained, clarified, dissected, illustrated so many times now from several people including you, he says it "isn't going well for you guys."

Oh my. I think deep down he knows that he's not able to defend his false teaching so he comes back with a denial.

It's like a person in retreat saying "isn't going well for you guys."


Hahahaha...

Answer
Hi mate

Thanks for writing.

Hahahaha you know what he just lives in absolute cuckoo land a complete and utter world of make believe!!

I explained it, then Ben did an excellent explanation on it, then Bro Rando did an excellent thread on it.

We've hit it from three different perspectives, explained it in different ways, we all showed how his argument is a non starter right from the beginning there was nothing difficult there to understand and he still makes ridiculous comments like the one you just posted.

But like I told him the other day no one cares what he thinks on the subject or any scriptural subject.

Those who have a certain amount of spiritual understanding or even are willing to think objectively on scripture, will understand!!

Derrick has/is neither, so he will never understand, but him and all those of his ilk are not our concern.

As you say he makes the claim "it's not going well" I mean there's nothing even going anywhere at all . He made the argument, we crushed it , end of story!! It wasn't even a strong argument anyway, yet I think what he must think is that it was his strongest argument that's why he refuses to let go of it.

I mean imagine coming at someone with the strongest argument you have and they just swat it like a fly and then stamp on it, hahahahahaha. It must be demoralizing!!

But a man who wanted to please God would take his defeat like a Man and change his views. Derrick does not, so he makes ridiculous comments.

Anyway thanks for writing

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.
