    Matt 24:45 is the Fathers will. That is all Jesus does--the Fathers will.

    Very sad sir--everytime I share a bible truth with you--you shrug it off--You aren't telling me no--you are telling God no.

    They always pointed to its closeness. It is super close now.

    Yes by God choosing to reveal certain truths at the proper time--weeded out many fake JW,s. A real JW stands until the end.
    Only those in darkness could believe that imperfect men do not err--Correction then is the wise path--- The trinity religions came about like this--Catholicism created many lies from false council teachings--They never made correction. Others saw the darkness--they started new religions who carried the majority of errors with them--None of them make correction--instead became a divided house that will not stand
    Fact--Those who have been making correction from error to truth here in these last days will prove right in the end.

    And that really makes sense to you kjw47? Is the Holy Spirit going to tell them something that is not right until God wills the truth to be known? Please pay attention to what you say!

    Yes, it's so simple you had to be misguided as to what it means!

    1 Corinthians 1:10-13 (ESV Strong's) 10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. 11 For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. 12 What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.” 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

    The division was, some said they followed Paul and some said they followed Apollos and some Cephas and some Christ, it was who they claimed to follow, not about everyone being in unity of thought! Please pay attention to what you say!

    If they made MANY corrections, they must have made MANY errors, and what do your "real teachers" say about errors?

    *** w50 11/15 p. 462 Fraudulent Religious Relics ***
    All error and lies are of the Devil and are certainly a great reproach and dishonor to God. (John 8:44; Rom. 1:25)


    John 8:44 (ESV Strong's) 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

    Romans 1:25 (ESV Strong's) 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

    Does that apply to everyone but your teachers kjw47? Are the errors your teachers make Holy Spirit sanctioned? They must be, because you say they LISTEN to the Holy Spirit and they make corrections once they see them because the Holy Spirit is telling them things before God wills it to be known.

    Right back at you!

    Yeah @djhwoodwerks, forget all of those "mistakes" they made in the past. They're only human. What they say today is 100% fact. Well until tomorrow when they correct their 100% fact mistakes.

    *** km 5/74 p. 3 How Are You Using Your Life? ***
    Yes, since the summer of 1973 there have been new peaks in pioneers every month. Now there are 20,394 regular and special pioneers in the United States, an all-time peak. That is 5,190 more than there were in February 1973! A 34-percent increase! Does that not warm our hearts? Reports are heard of brothers selling their homes and property and planning to finish out the rest of their days in this old system in the pioneer service. Certainly this is a fine way to spend the short time remaining before the wicked world’s end.—1 John 2:17.

    They weren't speaking of some time way in the future kjw47, they were referring to 1975 and you know it. They had people believing that the world was ending in 1975. People were selling their homes and property, and your teachers praised them for it!

    You should really research it and see how many people left the org because of the false prediction. You'll go back thousands of years to research the false teachings of Christendom, but won't go back 50 years to research your own org. :shrug:

    I see...so it was Jehovah that put the flies in the soup and it was the Watchtower that later weeded them out?

    So we should have eaten the flies in the soup, and you would demand our children eat it as well because "real JW stands until the end" and don't get sick when offered rancid cheese?

    So why didn't the chef's correct before serving it? Isn't that what good chefs do? Was the light out in the kitchen when the food was prepared?

    I'm afraid you haven't answered my questions and if this weak defense is an example of Watchtower theology then it brings nothing but reproach upon the Organization.

    Lol, so true!

    Watchtower November 1, 1922 page 333
    Bible prophecy shows that the Lord was due to appear for the second time in the year 1874. Fulfilled prophecy shows beyond a doubt that he did appear in 1874. Fulfilled prophecy is otherwise designated the physical facts; and these facts are indisputable. All true watchers are familiar with these facts, as set forth in the Scriptures and explained in the interpretation by the Lord's special servant.

    Like the, 100% "indisputable facts" that Jesus did appear in 1874!

    Since his teachers listen to the Holy Spirit, He had to tell them something, so He just told them that trash because it wasn't time for God to will the truth to be known.

    I don’t shrug them off. I point out the fact that your replies do not directly respond to those arguments that obviously refute your absurd assertions. You always divert, run, build strawmen, and commit a plethora of logical fallacies. Your claiming umbrage is repulsive, pitiful, prevarication.

    What if those "imperfect men" actually LISTEN to the Holy Spirit and write exactly what He tells them, can they make errors then?

    What I asked was why doesn't The Holy Spirit stop them when they want to say something that isn't right.

    Today is what counts. I agree! Jesus isn't pictured at Revelation 6:2. They say it is Jesus. It was the proper time a long, long time ago for them to correct that serious mistake. It is as though they are calling the false crists "Jesus". It is the same, but opposite of what the Pharisees did when they called the real christ a false one.

    I know you don't understand or you are faking it.

    OK. But, anyone reading the Bible can know that he or she should be prepared.

    Matthew 24:45 (ESV Strong's) 45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time?

    That "question" is the Fathers will?

    How can you, or any witness for that matter, actually believe that God didn't have any people/household from the time of the last apostle until 1914? How could there have not been a need for "food at the proper time" until 1914? How come God let the entire inhabited world from the time of the last apostle until 1914 live in darkness, not knowing the truth?

    I don't think that is what they are saying. The JWs say that there have always been servants of God for the will of God to do. They believe that presently it is their governing body. I think that @kjw47 has indicated such on this thread.

    What they say is that in the FUTURE God will appoint the slave over all of God's belongings.

    God has always provided faith's direction through a person or people. It is what I believe the Hebrew Scriptures (the Old Testament) is all about.

    That can't be true, if God has always had servants, who had the truth, there would have been no need to form the witnesses or to rewrite the Bible. The erroneous Trinity religions, as kjw47 keeps saying, would not have been the only religions around, the true religion would have been in existence and there would have been no reason to start a new one or rewrite the Bible.

    No one knew the hidden truths, until here in these last days( Daniel 12:4) not even Gods own angels-1Peter 1:12
    And AT THE PROPER TIME= when God willed a truth known, it was--only through the teachers who have Jesus. The teachings were in the bible already but understood by none until these last days--Why? Because God, through the Holy spirit taught nothing on those matters to anyone prior to it being when God willed--Can you understand that reality?
    Your reasoning is faulty.
