What a moronic response.
The NWT (1950) also reads "worship." Is that a Roman Catholic book?
They corrected many errors through the years. Previous mistakes and some mistakes they made as well. The important thing is to correct them.
They only had error filled Greek lexicons translated by Catholicism to go by.
Your "no" was superflulousNo. Jesus prevented that from taking place.
Jesus predicted carnal worship of himself in Matt 7:21-23.He never is.
Just so.As with God (Matthew 15:7-9).
I think προσκυνέω means make obeisance. "Worship" is a peculiar word linked to Catholic ritual. A Persian would see προσκυνέω as prostrating yourself on the ground and kissing the earth. You mean to say it's not what you do?When used in the NT it always means worship.
New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (NIDNTT): As used in the New Testament proskyneo "denoted exclusively worship addressed (or which should be addressed) to God or to Jesus Christ" (2:877, Prayer, H. Schonweiss, C. Brown, the boldface is mine).
No worship was rendered to Jesus.Your "no" was superflulous
Your opinion is noted.I think προσκυνέω means make obeisance.
A Persian would see προσκυνέω as prostrating yourself on the ground and kissing the earth. You mean to say it's not what you do?
Why would they utilize them? Russell started this heretical group in 1879, so that is more than 70 years for them to get it right.
You are dodging the question I asked in post 15.

Maybe you need to go to school, so you can understand english--You already know 100% the JW,s do NOT worship Jesus. Yet you strive to be a deceiver because as Jesus told the pharisees-satan is your Father. It wont be wise being judged for costing others lives because you chose to deceive.September 4, 2022
