To RR AND EX;"That you go forth into large or small cities according to your ability, as Colporteurs or evangelists, seek to find in every place the earnest Christians, many of whom you will find possedded of a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge; to these seek to make known the riches of our Father's grace, and the beauties of His word, giving them tracts." I think there are alot of evangelists today in the world going town to town.So lets do what if? We turned the T.V. on and the clone of Pastor Russell was made. He is informed of all the so called Christians going from town to town, while his standfast adherents sit idoly by. He asks them, you have my righting on the preaching don't you? They reply, we don't use the word Colporteur anymore. He replies then, evangelize, that word is still used.How many of you would go and evangelise from town to town for him now?P.s. Can you find me that 10 minute preach time and you are in?
Well then I guess the "ransom for all" isn't for all, eh?
No the ransom is still for "All", surely you don't think everyone is going to except it do you? As I'm sure you must know, there are some people who don't want to have anything to do with Jehovah, Jesus or anything related to it! So, the bottom line is; the ranson is for all those who EXCEPT it.
Unfortunately it's a vicious circle of reasoning. In order for a person to really appreciate the ransom for all, it really has to touch one's heart that the opportunity to learn of Christ and His Kingdom MUST happen during his reign. NOT before, during. Then, and only then will Christ start to judge people, whether they are walking on the Highway of Holiness or not, and that at least a hundred years!
RR, what about those BS and Jw's who have an "Earthly hope", will they be living in a world just the way it is now? with the exception satan is abyssed.
consider Matt. 24:37-39...."For just as the days of Noah were so the presence(Parousia) of the son of man will be".....................Jesus is talking about the destruction of ungodly ones at armageddon!
WV, if the church was completed tomorrow and Jehovah let the 4 winds of destruction loose, you're saying that the fornicators, adulterers, murderers, pedaphiles, etc; would all walk right into the millenium and then hope to change their ways? Then what would be the sense in anyone trying to do what's right in our time? The "New World" would be the same old world with all it's problems!

I am not a Bible Student, but I agree with "the Ransom for all, and Israel restored, just as Brother Russelll did.
... have you discussed your new found belief with any other JW? If so, what was their response?
