Today's people are fond of such statements as: “Now the way I see it is,” “As I understand it,” or “Well, that’s your understanding.” How different this is from Jesus’ position! Never did he say: “Now as I see it, so-and-so is right,” implying that someone else might see it a different way.
No with Jesus and he's true followers, doctrines were either right or wrong, true or false, there was no halfway ground, no gray, indefinite, in-between shade between truth and error.

Stories for children about a man whose existence is as yet unproven. the bible is not a contemporaneous record and thus not trustworthy. A set of rules created by a later group of religious leaders who decided what should be included with a view to reinforcing a social order that left them in control. A way of managing the expectations of the poor to reduce the risk of revolt....
I am struck by the use of the word 'gray' for 'grey' which leads me to think the OP might be American.
How do you know what he never said (ignoring the fact that he didn't speak English).

Anyway, bring overconfident about one's views bring correct is no indication that they really are. And those that see things purely in black and white are invariably missing reality.

Lots of JW followers there, I think Americans tend to be sect maniacs

LOL, LOL, and LOL again. Love it!
Goodlife - why do you persist in posting statements and then refusing to engage in proper debate?
It's lifted from The Watchtower, with "people" replacing "clergymen".

"TODAY’S clergymen are fond of such statements as: “Now the way I see it is,” “As I understand it,” or “Well, that’s your understanding.” How different this is from Jesus’ position! Never did he say: “Now as I see it, so-and-so is right,” implying that someone else might see it a different way. With Jesus and the apostles doctrines were either right or wrong, true or false, there was no halfway ground, no gray, indefinite, in-between shade between truth and error."
Your missing letter S?
Ah yes, lovely Jehovah's Witnesses - who would let a child die for want of a blood transfusion because they don't believe anyone should have one. Just as well the courts intervene.
'with Jesus and he's(sp) true followers, doctrines were either right or wrong, true or false, there was no halfway ground, no gray, indefinite, in-between shade between truth and error.'

And you see that as a plus, do you?

You know the book of Leviticus contains the instructions given to the Israelites on how they were to avoid outbreaks of contagious diseases, including the practice of quarantine. And regarding sanitation, the law recorded at (Deuteronomy 23:12, 13 )
That Bible information was written down many centuries ago. How did those writers come up with such accurate information when even the most learned people of their time were ignorant of such things? The Bible’s Author answers: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”—Isaiah 55:9.
Yes, today's sanitation laws were taken from these laws of the Isrealites. In Victorian times the mortality rate was high, then Doctors realised if they washed their hands more frequently less people died.
Those who follow the Bible realise this and in the case of COVID, we were aware of the quarantine requirements long before the Governments brought in social distancing.
So for those of you who say the Bible is an old book, not relevant for today, think again!
See if you can find this in the Watchtower!
No but it might have been the subject last meeting at the 'hall'
This is where the JWs fall at the first hurdle. If you are convinced that the Bible was written by God himself, then the rest naturally follows.
Here's the first little bit of Deuteronomy 23 12. I couldn't bear to read further.

1 “He who is emasculated by crushing or mutilation shall not enter the assembly of the Lord.

2 “One of illegitimate birth shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly of the Lord.

3 “An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly of the Lord forever, 4 because they did not meet you with bread and water on the road when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of [a]Mesopotamia, to curse you. 5 Nevertheless the Lord your God would not listen to Balaam, but the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord your God loves you. 6 You shall not seek their peace nor their prosperity all your days forever.

[email protected] why were you listening in we don't meet at the Kingdom Hall now.
Badgers largely obey the sanitation laws of the Israelites.
Karolina, yes, but badgers are all illegitimate, so they won't enter the assembly of the Lord.

That why the word of truth. was preserved down to our day; the prophecies were written for our benefit: “For all the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.” (Rom. 15:4)

If your minds are filled with knowledge of the contents of the Bible you shall know just what to do.
