    Since both are followers of Russell what are the differences?

    Do you ever give it up...

    ......you must have been a tell-tale at school , always putting other people down, to make yourself feel good.

    What did I post that was inaccurate?

    Where do I give a personal opinion?

    I didn’t say that you did.

    The problem I am having with this Site now, is that post are about doctrine , beliefs , etc , but there is so very little about God Himself , just all these constant pointing of the finger against anything that moves. King David hungered and thirsted after God, that is what is missing on all these threads.

    If you have to ask that question...then you obviously cannot relate to David who said ...
    "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
    My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:
    when shall I come and appear before God?..
    .."

    You are not a God Chaser....but only interested in things that are related to Him. :(

    Let me say this way, more about doctrines teachings, etc is learning about God.

    It is more than your warm, fuzzy, love and kisses thinking.

    It's the difference between talking about God and receiving Christ. It's the difference between theology and divinity. Today a student may take classes in theology. Theology simply means words about God. Atheists are getting degrees in theology, and can articulate theological doctrines as good as any Christian. There was a time when students received degrees in divinity.

    Christ never taught theology. He wasn't a theologian. Atheists today talk of Christology, and people don't catch on to what's really going on. Christ was not a Christologist either.

    The difference is seen in Christophanies, or Christ manifesting in the lives of the new creation.

    Do you include yourself among those who speak of Christology while not really being a follower of Jesus... that is one who has not received Christ? I am presuming you cannot see my post as apparently early in your membership here, I believe, you put me on "ignore". I say this because while I have replied directly to several of your posts, you have never answered me at all on this forum.

    I post this here for the benefit of any who may not be aware of these things. At one time you did say specifically in one of you posts that you were NOT really a believer. You may correct me in all points if I am in error. If an apology is appropriate I am more than willing...

    Jehovahs Witnesses dont follow Pastor Russel. Russelites follow russell and they came to nothing as a result. Jehovahs Witnesses followed Jehovah by means of his Son Christ Jesus and today they number 8million and growing

    True, Jehovah's Witnesses do NOT follow Russell, they follow the Governing Body. And if numbers was a sign of God's blessings, then the Catholics are the True religion.
