Jehovah`s Witness/Really, Rando? You Use Jesus To Justify Your Deception?

Question
I really hated to post another reply from Rando, but after deciding to come back and reply to a question he first rejected, his comment needs to be addressed.

It seems that Rando, to excuse the fact that he has lied publicly and does NOT have the actual quotes from me that he told everyone that he has, he has now decided to use JESUS to justify his complete failure to answer the questions sent to him.

That's right...He has the gall to give an example where Jesus didn't answer a question, to justify his own failure to do so.

Rando writes...""With that the high priest stood up and said to him: “Have you no answer? What is it these are testifying against you?”  But Jesus kept silent. So the high priest said to him: “By the living God I put you under oath to tell us whether you are the Christ the Son of God!" (Matthew 16:63) I know, I know, you have no understanding of what I just highlighted in Bold. I thought you stated Jesus was God?  Ooops...humiliated you didn't I?

So now, Rando is so desperate to grasp for any straw that he can, that he now stoops to blasphemously using Jesus Christ to justify his dishonesty?

I doubt even Rando's couple of dearest friends here, will try to justify this one.

Answer
This is a blatant misuse of God's Word.  I won't even address his dishonest implication, yet AGAIN, that we do not believe that Jesus is the Christ.  He knows better...he just lies.

But there is a bigger issue here.  And the bigger issue, is that after being exposed for his dishonesty, and being shown to not have quotes that he says he has, and being silenced into not being able to give an answer....He uses the name of Jesus Christ, to justify it.

Uh Rando, I think there are a couple of differences here, between you and Jesus....

1.  Jesus HAD answers, but simply chose not to respond.  You, on the other hand, lied about having quotes from me.  You have NONE.  You are silenced, because you have been proven dishonest, and could not accept the challenge to produce the quotes.  That wasn't Jesus' reason for being silent.  He was being falsely accused...You have been exposed with facts.  Slight difference, there.

Jesus was fulfilling a prophecy...You are not.  You are not Jesus, Rando.  Not even close.


2.  Jesus wasn't silent because he had been going around lying about people, and got caught.  You, on the other hand, have been silenced because your lies have been exposed, and you have nothing to offer in defense of your falsehoods.

Jesus doesn't lie....You do.

That response wasn't very honoring to the Savior, Jesus CHRIST.  Don't use my Savior, as an excuse for your UN-Christ-like actions.

Expertise

I was raised in the religion known as Jehovah`s Witnesses for 13 years. Since becoming a born-again Christian, I have researched extensively this religion, especially their doctrines and their history. I can answer questions about their doctrines from the perspective of Biblical Christianity. To be clear: Jehovahs Witnesses is the religion of my upbringing, though I myself was never baptized into the religion, nor have I ever been considered as a Jehovahs Witness.

Experience

29 years of Biblical research into the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, and how they differ from the teachings of the Watchtower.

Organizations
I would advise each questioner to this forum, to carefully READ the profiles of the various volunteers. There are several such as myself, who are not practicing JWs, but will provide you with an accurate and honest answer, regarding JW teaching. If we don't know the answer, we will try to research and get it for you. There are also some excellent practicing JWs here, who also endeavor to give you a factual and honest answer, based on their point of view. I believe by getting both points of view, the questioner can weigh the evidence for themselves, and make an informed decision. Unfortunately, there are also 3 here who claim to be JWs, but do NOT give honest, or well-researched answers. They will tell you only what they want you to believe, and they often hide facts about the history of their religion, as well as print untruths about other people's beliefs. This is done in an attempt to deceive the unsuspecting reader. It can be easily seen who these 3 are, simply by reading the public posts and "answers" which they write. Their posts will normally be filled with personal attacks, and if you question them about some teaching or aspect of the Watchtower that makes them uncomfortable, they will often reject your question, question your motives for asking it, tell you that you have been reading "apostate" sites, or turn the conversation into an attack on another expert. These ones are better avoided, as there is nothing to be gained by way of positive discussion, as they are not interested in intelligent conversation, or honest dialogue. If after reading the forum, you still have any questions as to who they are, just ask me, and I will be happy to tell you. And I can also provide documentation of their willful dishonesty. One thing is for certain...in a forum where people from both sides claim to be "Christians", there should never be any willful lying. Such ones only create a distraction in the forum, and provide nothing of any real value.

Education/Credentials
High School, some college. Studies of God's Word, the Bible, and how it compares to JW theology. I have found my own personal study and experiences to be far more valuable than any formal education or training. The Bible message is clear...Salvation is ONLY through and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and no religious organization has a thing to do with it. While attendance at a Bible-preaching, Bible-believing church is a must for spiritual growth and fellowship, no church can grant salvation to its members. Nor is joining a particular group a prerequisite for being saved.
