One comment I want to make on this issue and about the JW's having a problem or two with regards to some bad sins that a couple elders have had in the congregations, which is seriously bad, and the comments that have been made that "If we were God's people and being used by him why do things like this happen? Or from other forums," Why were they wrong in the past about dates"?
First there are no scriptures that ever say his people would be mistake free. Ones just assume that's the way it should be if God was really with them. Thats an assumption that is wrong and not in agreement with the Bible. All humans sin.
Secondly did God not have people in the past such as the Isrealites that were imperfect humans and did they not sin and comment really serious sins at times? Did not all the prophets of old not sin? Did not very special humans such as Noah and Moses sin?
So to say that the JW's are not in God's favor and direction and to say it can't be true because they make mistakes is silly and unscriptural.
One with insight has to look past the normal sins we all make and look at the big picture and search deep into what a religion is teaching and the fruit it bares.
