I am not looking for an argument here but understanding.
I am in a discussion with a JW concerning the Holy Spirit. As a Catholic I beleive that the HS is within me and leads me in the way of Christ. She tells me that in Witness teaching the HS is within people who have declared themselves anointed (saints) and have the hope of ruling with Jesus in heaven and people with the HS on them have a hope of living on earth at the end of the world. To me this means that the Witness teach 2 classes of people that are to be saved: those going to heaven (upper,my word) and those staying on earth.(lower,my word) I don’t think that God has different classes of saints.
How do they decided whether they are anointed or not? Is it a feeling they have? Does God speak to them? Maybe God has a different plan than the one they choose for themselves.
Are there bible verses that specifically state what they teach? Is this their interpretation of certain bible verses?
