Why do you trust people you’ve never met, and how do you do that?

Dear Maggie!

Jehovah’s Witnesses are an international brotherhood.When does anyone witness? By giving himself unconditionally to Jehovah in prayer after receiving the appropriate knowledge (John 17/3) and documenting this through baptism. I can therefore have full confidence in such a person. Black sheep are occasional, but are very rare and, if they become obvious and remorseless, are removed from the community. JZ strive for quality, not quantity!

Resurrection

Definition: Revival of a deceased person to life

If a person’s personality pattern is stored in God’s memory, God can bring that person back to life by adding a new body.

A breakdown of this topic:

Resurrection by touching the bones of Elisa (2 Kings 13/21)

Ø

Resurrection Hope in Pre-Christian Times

you will long for the work of your hands (Job 14/15)

Ø

over 500 eyewitnesses (1.Cor.15/3-8)
