comment Did the congregation have input into leader selection in the early church?
It just seems quite crazy that out entire basis for appointing elders nowadays is based on pretty much Acts 14 alone, but that's what we do by faith. In addition, "cheirotoneo" seems to only be used in one other place, 2 Corinthians 8:16-19, but I can't tell if it's being appointed to travel with, or appointed as some kind of leader.

comment Are Jehovah's Witnesses allowed to marry outside the faith?
I still find it odd how JW's consider themselves a branch of Christianity...

comment Are Jehovah's Witnesses allowed to marry outside the faith?
As being raised in a JW family, and having to attend all services for the first 13 years of my life, I will say that whilst it's not an offence to marry someone outside of the JW faith, there is social exclusion applied. Remember, JW's are extremely lawful in their dealings - damagingly so - whilst not officially excommunicating an individual, they can make them feel like they have been.

comment Do I have to attend church every Sunday?
This reminds me of 1 Cor 10:23, "You say, "I am allowed to do anything"--but not everything is good for you. You say, "I am allowed to do anything"--but not everything is beneficial."
