    Circuit Assemblies, Theocratic, Kingdom hall and many more that are part of JW theology are not found or even implied in the Bible. See how it easy it is to turn that around.

    Moreover the idea that terms not found in the Bible cannot be used to descript certain concepts and ideas is simply stupid. The words omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent are not found in the Bible but the concepts are.

      Languages evolve and each generation comes up with new ones that allow us to further describe complex concepts. Even if the words weren't used in the Bible doesn't mean the concept wasn't, like Origen has said. The trinity concisely describe the three partnership of God, Holy Spirit, and Jesus. God-the-Son shows that Jesus is God in human form. Though I'm not sure about incarnation, I thought that was an Eastern concept so I don't expect it to be in the bible. First, second, and third person of the Trinity is simply to separate the aspects and break down complex concepts into smaller bite sized one.

        The word bible is also not included in Scripture.

          And the JW's, New World Translation's, little additions and subtractions, like we find in John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was [a] God", were never written in the text to begin with, and they are certainly not "implied" :confused: Just to be clear about John 1:1, here's how it 'is' written:


          "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" ~John 1:1

          In Christ,
          David
          Simul Justus et Peccator ~Martin Luther

          "We are justified by faith alone, but the faith that justifies is never alone" ~John Calvin

          "The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us." ~C. S. Lewis

          "The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances" ~Elisabeth Elliot

          "The law is for the self-righteous to humble their pride; the Gospel is for the lost to remove their despair. ~C. H. Spurgeon
