Why are so many clergy anti truth?

When are the clergy going to see that honesty is the best policy?

Keeping tradition has not helped them keep their flocks, as most congregations are down to a few diehards who keep attending to be with old friends.

All they would have to do is move forward into the light of God's word, the same as many others are now doing, should they not?

And the JW nonsense is THE TRUTH, I suppose?

Re: Why are so many clergy anti truth?

You seem to have a fixation with clergy, James. Not all churches have clergy, and, of those that do, their definitions of clergy would not, I suspect, agree with yours.
Even in those denominations where clergy administer the churches, they do not define the theological stance, by and large, of those churches.

I thought most understood the word clergy, also words like pomp and ceremony, mitre, cassock, and ruffle.

Or just funny cloths in general, why do people who profess Christianity wear funny cloths, what president is there for that?

Exactly what nonsense would that be then?

Would it be looking for a world where people can actually live together in peace and security?
Jim

What your definition of clergy and individual denominations definition of clergy are appear to differ, James.
For example, your above post bears no relation to the definition of clergy in my particular denomination - the Church of Scotland - which is Scotland's National Church.

Which church does the Almighty God support?

Does the Almighty God condemn state religions?
Jim

Who said anything about state religion?
The CofS is not an established or state church, James; it has no place in the governance of the nation ( Scotland) nor should it. Niether has the state any rights over the governance of the CofS.

As for which church God is interested in?
Leaving aside the fact that He is interested in, and involved in, each part and each person of His creation, then there is, of course, only one church.

The church  are the children of God by adoption; those who put their lives in the hands of Christ Jesus, God Incarnate.
Those who do not are not part of God's church.
JamesJah

Then what is Babylon the Great that he warns all his servants to get out of then Jim?

James;
If you think I'm going to wast my time dissecting the mindless witterings of Russelite misprophesy, for get it.
I'm Christian, not Russelite.
JamesJah

OK Jim

Is that a wheat one, or weed one?

Was it not Jesus that said >>>>

John 17:3
This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. . .

It was also Jehovah that passed this information to Jesus who gave it to John so who you going to blame for ignoring it?

Revelation 18:4-8
I heard another voice out of heaven say: Get out of her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind. Render to her even as she herself rendered, and do to her twice as much, yes, twice the number of the things she did; in the cup in which she put a mixture put twice as much of the mixture for her. To the extent that she glorified herself and lived in shameless luxury, to that extent give her torment and mourning. For in her heart she keeps saying, I sit a queen, and I am no widow, and I shall never see mourning. That is why in one day her plagues will come, death and mourning and famine, and she will be completely burned with fire, because Jehovah God, who judged her, is strong.
