|THE Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that the Bible is not written to everyone, not even to all Christians.
The Watchtower teaches that the New Testament is only written to a select class and, for the rest of us, there is no chance to become a child of God in this lifetime.
But did the apostles recognise this class distinction. No. The apostles knew nothing of any such class distinction.
| Not one epistle was written to the exclusion of any believer.
1. Romans is addressed “to all who are beloved to God in Rome.”
2. I Corinthians is to “all who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
3. Galatians is “to the churches of Galatia.”
4. II Peter is addressed “to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours.”
If you are a Jehovah’s Witness, you have received a faith, but not “the same kind” as that of the apostles. This is the only real reason the promises of life and Sonship are not addressed to you.
|In fact the Watch Tower Society goes so far as to say that studying the Bible on its own is dangerous to your spiritual health.
The Watchtower of August 15, 1981 on pages 28 and 29 says:
So, there you have it from the Watch Tower’s own mouth, if you read the Bible on it’s own you start to believe the same as Christians. Praise God!
