Jehovah's Witnesses: Why can't computer witnessing count as "going into all the world?"?
I know that the door to door work is very important too you as proof of your commitment to the great commission. I have done door to door work for a church I attended in the past. I don't do it now because they think I'm a JW. LOL. It would seem you folks have "cornered the market" on door to door work.
But none of my R/S Q/A are private. To my detriment, critics of my Q/A have deleted resolved Q/A after being finalized; even one being a BA.
Why can't my non-private Q/A (over 500 plus now) count as doing my part to fulfill the Great Commission? I've talked/witness too: Muslims,(one overseas in Saudi) LDS, Catholics, atheists, evolutionists, and God-haters of all types.
Why can't my computer work count the same as your door to door work? I'm not imposing myself on anyone.(It's up to them to read what I've written if they want). Just using my freedom of speech. Do you think God will give me credit for it, even if your organization won't?
PS I didn't ask whether your accounts are private or not. How does your accounts count if no one can read them?
Saraphina Blue: Thanks for your post. In the desire to be a book "known and read of all men;"(2Cor. 3:2);deleted Q/A is the risk we all take. I don't blame you for going private. For whatever it's worth: Someone went back into my file and voted on an unresolved question that was a year old. It just happened to be my answer, and it gave me the BA. LOL and WHOA!
We can argue all day (not my intent) of who has the message of Christ. If I'm right, am I not fulfilling the great commission the same as you believe you are? Even if I'm not knocking on doors?
In your intense study of the Bible, look for passages that confirm or deny that the authority to forgive sins was ever given to anyone with the DNA of angels: or did Jehovah give it to someone his equal? See Phil. 2:6.
Em leah: Thanks for your post. If it's true that: "Jehovah didn't give us the Internet for his preaching work." (:
Then I haven't found a book, chapter, or verse that says we can't. LOL!
