Dishonest Gain

This addition was added to the last post, under the sub-heading "Mentally Diseased":

We do well to consider a final point made at 1Tim.6:5, where it reads;
"...men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain."
The true identity referred to in this scripture, supposes that by means of their form of "godliness", they will benefit.
How does this trait help us to identify those truly "mentally diseased"?
We already know that we have two camps of anointed.....
those ruling,
and those being disfellowshipped for "withdrawing" from the doctrine of those ruling.
Tell me please....
Who of these two anointed groups, anticipates ("supposes") that they will "gain" by their form of "godliness"?

Do not all those anointed who realize that they must take a stand of "godliness" against
the standards and expectations of their local elders...
their own close family's cherished tenets,
and the doctrinal norms of the entire society to which they have been attached for decades....
anticipate loss...and not "gain"?
Surely...
they are aware of the great cost.
They do not "suppose", that they will personally "gain"!
(2Cor.2:17)

Let's compare this verse to the other camp...the ruling one.
Do they anticipate that their stand...their form of "godliness", will and has resulted in "gain"?

Please use your thinking ability to perceive who 1Tim.6:5 is truly applying to...
Those who anticipate the loss of their former identity, their good name, their own children, parents, and even marriage mates, long-time friends, and entire community... due to a sense of loyalty to God, Christ, and truth;
Or,
those who gain power over millions of obedient slaves, billions of dollars, expansive real estate holdings and investments, personal servants, luxurious comforts, prestige, tribute and honor wherever they go, the highest standards of free medical, clothing, cuisine, travel, vacation spots, etc.,etc. ?

Who have you determined "supposes" that they will attain "gain" through their form of "godliness".
Who is it really,
that needs to adhere to "corrupt" doctrines "destitute of truth" required to maintain that "gain"?
Who are those who... when exposed to truth from their fellow slaves,
use it to form and publish further "contentions", "arguments", "useless wranglings", and "disputes",
for the sake of "gain" (and to guard what they have already amassed)?
(Luke9:58) (Matt.4:9) (Luke12:20)

The truth contained in the scriptures, along with their proper interpretation, is not difficult to properly understand by those who are still capable of using their thinking ability (Heb.5:14; Ps.19:7; Prov.1:1-7; 1Cor.2:6)
rather than going along with the tide (Matt.7:13; 24:11; 2Thess.2:11,10,12; Rev.13:7,8,9)
of those drunk and asleep,
blinded by a desire to proudly seek their own righteousness (Rom.10:3; Matt.6:33; John7:18).

Who today, really are the ones "obsessed with disputes"/"mentally diseased over questionings"?
Would it not be those who insist on arguing in favor of falsehood, who continue to whitewash a wall of lies which will not remain standing?
Their defensive doctrines are crumbling.

  1. Sister Pearl,

    How very true are your comments and understandings on this subject.

    Jehovah and Jesus has blessed you with practical wisdom to see the truth about who is really mentally diseased.

    Those of us who have been disfellowshipped and lost friends and families because we just wanted to spead truth to our brothers are waiting for Jehovah and Jesus to cause justice to be done for each of us in our own legal case.

    We all hope and pray that many will have their eyes and hearts opened to see the truth of this matter before it is too late.

    May Jehovah and Jesus bless you as you continue to sow seeds of truth.

    1. Sometimes we may feel weary waiting for divine justice; but these are some scriptural thoughts...
      "You are always righteous, LORD, when I bring a case before you. Yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease?" Jer.12:1
      "Why do the wicked live on, growing old and increasing in power?" Job21:7
      "There is something else meaningless that occurs on earth: the righteous who get what the wicked deserve, and the wicked who get what the righteous deserve." Ecc.8:14
      "Like cages full of birds, their houses are full of deceit; they have become rich and powerful and have grown fat and sleek. Their evil deeds have no limit; they do not seek justice. They do not promote the case of the fatherless; they do not defend the just cause of the poor." Jer.5:27,28

      Psalm72:2-14
      And Ps.37:1,2,7,9-17,28,35-40
      (Matt.23:12)
