2 Corinthians : Interpretation (6)

  1. Does Hell exist? 2:15 (1)
  2. "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
    This verse is was inscribed on US military rifle sights. 4:6
  3. Did Jesus sin? 5:21
  4. To Jehovah's Witnesses, everything outside of the Watchtower Organization is controlled by Satan. The Governing Body uses theses verses to condemn all holidays, civic activities, and association with non-JWs. 6:14-17
  5. "For your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men ... Thanks be to God."
    God loves liberals! 9:13-15
  6. Jehovah's Witnesses use this verse (along with Dt 19:15, 1 Tim 5:19, and Mt 18:16) to justify their refusal to report or investigate incidents of child molestation unless two or three JWs have witnessed the event. If witnesses do not come forward (and they are discouraged from doing so since it would embarrass the organization), then the victim is told to be quiet about it -- or risk being disfellowshipped. 13:1
