Will It Be "Preached From The Housetops"??? (Luke 12:1-3)Many Jehovah's Witnesses are starting to wonder why there are so many "apostates," ex-Jehovah's Witnesses that seem to turn on their wonderful worship of Jehovah at the local kingdom halls. They wonder why so many are leaving the ranks in disgust.
Well, suffice to say, this simple message may help.
Remember there are many different ways to explain this. But one simple way would be to recall, Jesus plainly told his disciples:
- "...Watch out for the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy." (Luke 12:1 New World Translation)
Also, Paul writes under inspiration:
- "A little leaven ferments the whole lump." (1 Cor. 5:6-8; Galatians 5:9 New World Translation)
Most Jehovah's Witnesses are quite familiar with those bible texts shown above.
And yet, apparently millions of Jehovah's Witnesses the world over, and the Watchtower Society themselves, do not feel these warnings are to be taken too seriously. Maybe some in-the-know Jehovah's Witnesses, feel they are an exception to this rule. They imagine that they will be permitted by Jehovah and Jesus to continue their so-called "sacred service" and worship free of any interruption and they will be blessed, and will continue to prosper in this deception, hypocrisy and wickedness.
But Jesus said, this would not be the case at all.
To the contrary, Jesus said such wickedness would have to be addressed and dealt with publicly. Jesus said, instead this "carefully concealed," "secret" wickedness would finally come to light, be openly exposed, and would even have to be "preached from the housetops." So this problem, is not going away just because some Jehovah's Witnesses turn their heads and want it to go away, when they learn about it. (See Luke 12:2, 3. New World Translation)
"But what deception and hypocrisy are you talking about," you say?
Well, Jehovah's Witnesses openly condemn the church organizations of this world for doing something they say is very, very wicked. (See June 1st, 1991 Watchtower pg. 17, par. 10, 11) Then they go and openly practice the exact same thing, unrepentantly for years. But this time they think they get to do this with impunity. This time Jehovah and Jesus is not concerned that much, if they do it. Its "ok" for them to do it, they imagine.
Most here already know all about this. This is not news to them.
But for all new Jehovah's Witnesses present here, those lurking, please see the following information to show just how this has happened, and how your loyalty to God will now be seriously challenged, as you learn this for the first time. See link below:
