Question
Readers everyone is entitled to make up their own mind we were created with the capacity to do so. So let me sum up the situation from my perspective.

Once again there's been a lot of words written and a lot of smokescreening and a lot of distracting from a very simple point.

The point always was why does christendom think it's o.k to pick and choose which verses to read logically and which ones not too and who decides which ones are which??

It's a very reasonable question that once again has not been answered it's just been turned into "DW is a liar" "I'm being misrepresented" "Not once did I say that sentence" etc etc etc even if that was true it's not even remotely relevant to the question. Which is a very simple one for an honest person to answer.

The way I see it is this. If someone is going to start from the basis that not every bible verse is to be read logically . Then every single time they quote a scripture at me I'm gonna want to know the same answer. "How do you know that this verse is a logical or an illogical verse??

It doesn't matter what scripture it is . It could say "Jesus is lord?? The question will still be the same.

Again it's all well and good talking about the Bereans and how they tested the scriptures. But again how do we know that this is a logical verse?? Until you can show biblically  how we pick and choose each verse then you're nothing like the Bereans nor can I take your quote seriously seeing as I don't know whether it's a logical verse or an illogical one.

Asking questions such as these is really helpful in exposing Christendom and finding the truth. When I decided to come back to Jehovah after a while on the outside. I use to really research stuff and answer questions such as these.

Here are some others.

"Why is holy spirit unable to reveal the truth to all of Christendom??

"How can Arianism, modalism and the trinity all be biblical teachings??

"If there's fake "christians" and true "christians" in christendom as they believe, what has holy spirit revealed to the true that it hasn't the fake and how can we tell??

"Who decides which verses are out of date and which ones aren't??

Yes I know that Derrick denies that. However when your adding things to the bible such as "the people only had to listen to the ones that where inspired, not uninspired" when the bible say's no such thing, it's purely made up OR you're claiming that the first century christian congregation didn't change doctrine as time went on, although there's scores of examples. Then what you are doing is making the verses invalid and taking the organization and refinement of the first century congregation completely out of the equation for our day. Every add or take away from the bible adds a domino affect that culminates in ignoring verses somewhere along the line.

Readers I am here to help you find the truth and cut through the darkness and confusion of Christendom that is my intention . I spent much time researching and I know what I am talking about. When I say things a lot of the time I'm talking "bottom line" or "in affect what this teaching amounts too is this" we don't need to sit and quibble and debate over words. As long as the message get's across. Christendom are very good at detracting from the point throwing up smokescreens and confusion once you get past that the situation becomes clear.

So in conclusion it's really quite simple . Every time any member of Christendom quotes any verse at you ask them the exact same question how do you know this is a logical verse and not an illogical one??

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.
