No, that is the ear-tickling version of those who believe they can "brown nose" God into accepting them. Following Jesus by loving God and each other every single day and repenting when we don't is the way we are sanctified under Christ's perfect agape love for us all. The salvation business was done by Jesus, period.

You are making no sense.

God has already accepted us. He died on the cross for all. The only question is will you accept God and his gift of salvation.

You are being very vague. What does loving God even mean?

Break down repenting also.

you quoting 1 corinthians 1:10 is pot meets kettle you a JW follow a governing body at JW's headquaters



Actually--FIRST-- I believe what Jesus taught. His teachings prove the JW teachers are correct. Even in the error filled trinity translations. Everyone who knows what Jesus taught, knows it is fact.

JW teachers are linked to occultists and luciferian secret societies where they openly worship lucifer/satan. occult symbols are found in their pictures and publications. JWs openly deny the divinity of Jesus claiming he is Michael the archangel a blasphemous statement, claiming he is not God, etc

You are the one not making sense. If God has already accepted us because of what Jesus accomplished as a human, what do we need to be saved from? Being accepted by God would surely be more than enough. Since when do we need to accept anything God does?? Are we more powerful than God that we can deny His acceptance? How would any of that make sense to you?

I have not been remotely vague. At every opportunity, I have cited 1 Cor 13, Galatians 5 and the Sermon on the Mount as the attitude we should strive for in ALL our interactions because according to Jesus, God said: "Whatsoever you do to these the least of my creations, you do to me." He also said, "If you love not your brother who you can see, how can you love God who you cannot see." Get it yet??

Repenting is the changing or renewing of your state of mind to match the characteristics in the verses cited above.
