Jehovah`s Witness/Blasphemy against Holy Spirit

Advertisement


Question
I have a sincere question, that may be seem rude and impolite against your dear brothers in Brooklyn.

Doesnt the Governing Body of your religion blaspheme Holy Spirit, when they claim that Holy Spirit guides them in the truth, but are moving back and forth in interpretations?

I mean, how do you know its the Holy Spirit that guides them? And why Holy Spirit of God would cause confusion about which is the true interpretation?

I mean, when the "back and forth" ends? Who warrantes that finally we'll be sure this is the right interpretation and that we are not going to get back again?


Thats too much confusion atheists love to use as accusation against all the christian religions. Thats why I dont believe in doctrines that have to do with non salvation themes, and I know Jesus was not a man of doctrines.

By the way, it was funny that Derrick even though he is not a JW, has exactly the same attitude on doctrines. His "freedom from church" and "independent thinking" was a smokescreen.

Answer
Hi Christaras

No to blaspheme the Holy Spirit is to deliberately fight against God's will and purpose.

Spirit directed means Bible directed it means exactly the same thing.

This is an example of spirit directed

Acts 15:

6 And the apostles and the older men gathered together to see about this affair


12 At that the entire multitude became silent, and they began to listen to Bar′na·bas and Paul relate the many signs and portents that God did through them among the nations. 13 After they quit speaking, James answered, saying: “Men, brothers, hear me. 14 Sym′e·on has related thoroughly how God for the first time turned his attention to the nations to take out of them a people for his name. 15 And with this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, 16 ‘After these things I shall return and rebuild the booth of David that is fallen down; and I shall rebuild its ruins and erect it again"

Scripture interpreting scripture is spirit directed.

But really these worries are unimportant when Noah was told to build the ark and how to build it he got on and built it , he didn't concern himself with asking Jehovah how many gallons of water he was going to send and when it would happen and how. He just recognized what he had to do and did it.

All you have to do is recognize Christaras you don't have to understand every little detail just recognize.

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.
