Bible Note: Brad,
You have reasons for concern because I say unfamiliar things about God and His words.
In Deuteronomy 13 and 18 God requires us to understand for ourselves whether messages about Him are true by examining what a given message teaches about Himself. To do that we must know exactly why God is so worthy, and worship God's words with our whole minds above anything any man teaches. This is what Adam and Eve first failed to do regarding what Eve speaks in Genesis 3, apparently before the serpent did anything.
I will respond more fully to your first two questions in my profile for others who may have similar concerns.
I am claiming that the first reason God gives for worshiping only Himself is in the first good thing He provides. The first good thing God provides is described as the light when God names it in "God called the light (yom)" Gen 1:5.
Daylight is how truth is revealed to mankind and how all life is powered. That makes daylight hope itself.
I am advocating that the way God first uses two inspired words is contradicted in every modern translation of Genesis 1:5.
About whether I am a JW or connected with Watchtower, you must judge for yourself by what my message is. Do I advocate worship of anything less than God's actual Words?
Answering with Truth in Love,
