Jbuza,

One could just as easily post the opinions of all the non-JW scholars who agree the NWT is one of the better translations - and there are quite a few.

What matters is truth, not how many supporters one can muster for one particular view.

Hi Byblos, One might refer to the teaching I hold concerning the Godhead as Subordinationist Unitarian. It is the same teaching the apostles held concerning God and His son the Christ whom He sent (John 17:3). I believe in every word that proceeds from the mouth of our heavenly Father including His ...

Mystical, You misquoted what I said, you wrote, I should know that their rendering of John 1:1 is more accurate...demonstrates the distinction that most deny--even though they didn't translate these particular words correctly. What I did say was, I should note that their rendering of John 1: is more...

ray,

You have made an error in judgment concerning me when you falsely assumed I was a JW. I am not and never have been.

I don't have a lot of info on the NWT Bible but I own several because they have proven to be more accurate overall than most commonly known Bibles. I also found a NWT Greek Interlinear that I find to be more accurate than Green's but I haven't compared it to Marshall's yet. I did notice that with ma...

Jbuza,

You said,
I'm not being contrary, too much :D , I do see that the Law of Sacrifice tells us about Jesus and what he accomplished.
Why not try being contrary not at all?

So do you now acknowledge that the law of sacrifice has application to those whom God calls to repentance?

John, Let me get this straight. You don't see how the sacrificial ordinances of the first covenant, and the priests, and temple system, which were given to deal with the purification of the flesh from sin, was a copy and shadow of heavenly things pointing directly to the sacrifice the Messiah would ...

It all points symbolically to Christ's sacrifice, his blood and the death he suffered. That's why the sacrificial system of the OT is the tutor that was given to lead Israel to understand Christ's then future sacrifice.

It's all part of God's plan of salvation for mankind.

jbuza, I asked, Do those whom God calls to repentance require the application of the shed blood of Christ for salvation - which is central to the law of God? (Hosea 6:6, Matt. 9:13; 12:6; 23:23, Ps. 40:6-10). Your response, Yes, once. How many times is not the issue here. Once will suffice. It appea...

Yes, in part. You have identified the temporary, physical administration of the concept in question. It was given by Almighty God to Israel, through the Angel of YHVH in the first phase of the covenant. This system in the law was the schoolmaster or tutor (Gal. 3:24). There is however, the goal or p...

Jbuza,

You said,
Nope, sorry it is not. Shall I sacrifice Jesus every time I sin?
Either you're deliberately avoiding the point or you just don't get it.

I suggest you re-read the initial question.

Jbuza, Then you are still alive (Col. 3:3). Faith is pointless, God's chosen are not redeemed (Rev. 5:9). All remain in sin! (1 Cor. 15:3, 17) God's righteousness is far off and the kingdom will fail (Isaiah 51:3-8 ). The requirement in the law is not fulfilled and no one can please God (Rom. 8:3-8 ...

Jbuza, You asked, But how can we be certain we are going to understand if we address them from a pro-law standpoint? Can't we just genuinely address and let the chips fall as they may? What you're saying is, "Why can't we just continue to view the false assumptions about the law that we already have...

Fortigurn, This precludes any involvement by God in leading anyone to repentance including and especially the proud and ignorant (the Scriptures provide a few examples of this to the contrary). Thus the calling of God depends not upon the will of God or His predetermination of who He calls into the ...

Hi Jbuza, Thanks for your reply, it was encouraging to hear you say, I assure you that if I am mistaken in my understanding of my relationship to the Law that I do indeed want to change. And thank you for saying, I will try to do better with at least providing you feedback on your points. I apprecia...
