How You Can Find Out What God Requires
Lesson 1 How Can You Find Out What God Requires?
Lesson 1.1: The Bible alone tells us what we must do to please God.
Q: I believe that the Bible ALONE tells us what we must do to please
Q: I understand that the Mormons do not believe this...they actually
think that we need additional materials....I believe the Bible is sufficient
do you? Is it sufficient? see 2 Tim 3:16 (Do we need any other teaching
tools?) I understand that he GB does not believe this....
Q: Do you believe this is true? Do we need WT materials?
Q: Why then do we need the 'What Does God Require of Us Brochure?'?
Q: Is the brochure necessary if the Bible alone tell us what we
must do to please God?
Lesson 1.2: So God in heaven, not any human on earth, is the Author
of the Bible. Christians affirm this teaching...that is the God is the
author of scripture.
Note: There are six photographs of Jehovah's Witnesses
studying the bible. Notice all study with Watchtower materials
except for one on page 14.
Note: A footnote on page 31 (in Lesson 16) says you should read
The Knowledge That Leads to Everlasting Life before you are baptized. Why,
if the Bible alone tells you everything you need to know? The answer is,
Jehovah's Witnesses really believe you need these publications in addition
to the Bible in order to be a Christian. They claim to believe that the
Bible alone is sufficient, but they do not really believe this in practice.

Lesson 1.3: God made sure that the Bible was accurately copied and
preserved. We will see that this is not true according to WTS lesson 2
paragraph 2 (page 4).
The question "How You Can Find Out What God Requires," is
NOT FOUND in the Watchtower Brochure! This will save you time reading
through the brochure! However, you can find the answer in the Holy
Bible: John 6:28-29 NWT Therefore they said to him: "What shall
we do to work the works of God?" In answer Jesus said to them"
"This is the work of God, that YOU exercise faith in him whom
that One sent forth"
