Jehovah`s Witness/Just a question



Watchtower Nov 1,1967 It says The bible is an organizational book and belongs to the christian congregation, not to an individual, regardless of how sincerely they may believe that they can interpret the Bible. For this reson the Bible cannot be properly understood without Jehovah's visable Organization in mind.
Why do JW's depend into an organization to interpret the BIBLE? Why isn't God's inspired words good enough? God gave us everything we need to be with Him. We need nothing else.

WT March 15 2012 pg 20 par 2 The other sheep should never forget that THEIR SALVATION DEPENDS on their ACTIVE SUPPORT of Christ’s anointed “brothers” still on earth.
And why on earth would ones salvation depend on active support of mere men? I thought only THROUGH Jesus that we can gain SALVATION? And also..... FROM THE WTS PUBL.:  "Likewise, the Greater Moses, Jesus Christ, is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind. He is the Mediator between his heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and the nation of spiritual Israel, which is LIMITED TO ONLY 144,000 members." --- Worldwide Security Under the "Prince of Peace" pp.10-11 --- "Is Jesus the "mediator" only for anointed Christians? ... So in this strict Biblical sense Jesus is the "mediator" only for anointed Christians." Watchtower 1979 Apr 1 p.31
How's the OTHER SHEEP then? -_-

Looking Forward as always

Hi mate

Thank's for writing.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<,Why do JW's depend into an organization to interpret the BIBLE? Why isn't God's inspired words good enough? God gave us everything we need to be with Him. We need nothing else.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

All through mankind's history . God has used certain individuals, organization's , men etc etc to convey his message's to mankind to perform certain task's to help people along the way, it's how it's always been and how it is now.

Enoch, Noah, Moses, The Levites ,Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jesus, Peter, the apostle Paul etc etc etc.

You only have to read the Bible to see that it's a recurring theme, men appointed by God for specific reason's.

Even the Ethiopian eunuch was aware of this fact.

Acts 8:

30  "Philip ran alongside and heard him reading aloud Isaiah the prophet, and he said: “Do you actually know what you are reading?” 31 He said: “Really, how could I ever do so, unless someone guided me?"

So he knew he needed someone to help him understand God's word and so it is the same today.

That's why Jesus has appointed his organization on Earth today WTBTS. He made that clear here in Matthew.

Matt 24:

45 "Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time?"

This is a rhetorical question and one we need to find the answer to for ourselves.

We know here there is a slave Jesus has appointed to spiritually feed mankind and we need to recognize who they are. So the Bible gives us way's to identify them, here's just one.

1 John 4 "Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God, because many false prophets have gone forth into the world"

Found out who teaches the truth from the scriptures and hey presto you have your answer!!

That's why I've stated time and time again I'd put our Bible teaching's up against anyone and we would come out victorious.

Here's just one of many


Gen 2:

7 "and man BECAME(he wasn't given) a living soul"

That blows the immortal soul out of the window, doesn't it?? Everyone teaching the immortality of the soul is false.

Now how easy is that??

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<,And why on earth would ones salvation depend on active support of mere men? I thought only THROUGH Jesus that we can gain SALVATION?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes Jesus is our means of salvation but we gain salvation by obeying Jesus commandment's as given in the Greek scriptures

John 14:

15  "If YOU love me, YOU will observe my commandments; 16 and I will request the Father and he will give YOU another helper to be with YOU forever"

It's total laziness to expect to not have to do anything and still gain salvation. Why is there commands and guidelines written all throughout the scripture's if we don't have to do anything?? Why did Paul say thing's like this??

1 Cor 9:

27 "but I pummel my body and lead it as a slave, that, after I have preached to others, I myself should not become disapproved somehow"

Heb 12 "let us run with endurance the race that is set before us"

So there's hard work expected of us , there's thing's expected of us to do. One of those thing's is support Christ's brother's(the anointed) Jesus make's that clear in an illustration.

Matt 25:

34 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world. 35 For I became hungry and YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and YOU received me hospitably; 36 naked, and YOU clothed me. I fell sick and YOU looked after me. I was in prison and YOU came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you?’ 40 And in reply the king will say to them, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me"

Notice these one's are not Christ's brother's but they help Christ's brother's out , they show love and support to Christ's brother's and that's why they gain their salvation.

How's the OTHER SHEEP then?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant. The new covenant is between Jehovah and the anointed(spiritual Israel/Abraham's seed)

Heb 2:

16 "For he is really not assisting angels at all, but he is assisting Abraham’s seed"

The other sheep don't have a mediator, because there's nothing to mediate.

Where your confusion is , is the word mediator. It's used purely in Jesus case for the new covenant.

For the other sheep Jesus is high priest which means we can gain God's approval based on Jesus sacrifice, he doesn't have to be the mediator of the other sheep for the other sheep to gain approval.

Follow up if you need

Take care

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.


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".

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.

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.
