Jehovah's Witnesses can we call true theocratic golden rule government the basic spiritual infrastructure?
Good for all mankind?
The Ten Commandments given to Moses are these: (abbreviated form)
1. You shall not worship any other god but YHWH. [Golden rule toward God if obeyed]
2. You shall not make a graven image. [Golden rule toward God if obeyed]
3. You shall not take the name of YHWH in vain. [the well known English way said Jehovah] http://translate.google.com/#en|en|Jehovah
4. You shall not break the Sabbath. The Sabbath and Ten Commandments were given only to the Jewish nation but the principle of both are in the golden rule of treating all our neighbor's right 24/7 like the Ten Commandments mean.
5. You shall not dishonor your parents. [Golden rule toward all others if obeyed]
6. You shall not murder. [Golden rule toward all others if obeyed]
7. You shall not commit adultery [Golden rule toward all others if obeyed]
8. You shall not steal. [Golden rule toward all others if obeyed]
9. You shall not commit perjury. [Golden rule toward all others if obeyed]
10. You shall not covet. [Golden rule toward all others if obeyed]
The Universality of the Golden Rule in the World Religions
Christianity All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. [obey true theocratic golden rule from Jehovah's own word the Bible toward all]
Confucianism Do not do to others what you would not like yourself. Then there will be no resentment against you, either in the family or in the state.
Buddhism Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.
Hinduism This is the sum of duty; do naught onto others what you would not have them do unto you.
Islam No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.
Judaism What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellowman. This is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.
Talmud, Shabbat 3id
Taoism Regard your neighbor’s gain as your gain, and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.
Tai Shang Kan Yin P’ien
Zoroastrianism That nature alone is good which refrains from doing another whatsoever is not good for itself.
"Infrastructure is the basic [theocratic] physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society or enterprise, or the services and facilities necessary for an economy to function. The term typically refers to the technical structures that support a society, such as roads, water supply, sewers, power grids, telecommunications, and so forth. Viewed functionally, infrastructure [facilitates] the production of goods and services; for example, roads enable the transport of raw materials to a factory, and also for the distribution of finished products to markets. In some contexts, the term may also include basic social services such as schools and hospitals. In military parlance, the term refers to the buildings and permanent installations necessary for the support, redeployment, and operation of military forces." (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
The basic idea is there in a theocratic way too but more in a spiritual way with only a spiritual sword [Bible] to cut away wrong ideas about Jehovah and those who make a personal choice to worship only him as the Bible is all about! True beloved brothers and sisters in the one faith?
Dear LineDancer, that is very true and I did not mean to sound like I did not know that fact. But trying to keep it simple for those who do understand the golden rule idea if they live by it or not. In that new system soon to take over earth rule all will, willingly treat one another kindly 24/7 with no end to that right way to act toward one another! No more wars or fighting with one another ever a again! ALL will obey Jehovah out of a good heart! GREAT!
American King James Version
"And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom , which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever."
In 1914 the human governments were fighting over which of them would rule the world and since their religious leaders did not understand Jehovah's true purpose they backed human leaders in the great wars. Does the leaks below sound like human leaders have the right skills to lead us all to a peace and security lasting future? If Daniel is dealing with the true near future what future do these leaders today have if they trust their religious leaders over the all wise all mighty God Jehovah?
The all wise all mighty God Jehovah will have an infrastructure that will not need any military force, only his all powerful loving spirit in each persons heart so all things made will be useful not hurtful. The infrastructure of the true brotherhood today is teaching that hurt-less attitude to each one in the congregation now. So once the infrastructure of this human system goes down, they will know already how to work with each other in a true peaceful way.
With all the many fights going on around the world I recall seeing Rodney King saying this simple statement, ""Can't we all just get along and live together?" quote..Rodney King" One person put that comment up on the link below.
Leaks: China knows less about NKorea than thought
If all would put full trust and faith in this, Galatians 5:22-26 "On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. Moreover, those who belong to Christ Jesus impaled the flesh together with its passions and desires. If we are living by spirit, let us go on walking orderly also by spirit. Let us not become egotistical, stirring up competition with one another, envying one another." >and not be egotistical etc. what Rodney King said would have a chance to work! There is no law against treating all mankind right by Jehovah's spirit! :)
Dear Marcus Hamilton-smythe, A true theocratic [God ruled] world government by Jehovah God does not restrict freedom to do only good to one and all but rightly outlaws one and all against doing bad to anyone or anything on earth or heaven. There will be diversity of kinds of people but all will have a hurt-less attitude toward all others and all things made by Jehovah forever. You're right human society trying to live outside that divine law cannot be homogenized or make uniform in consistency to work well together. And that diversity in world religion is causing great conflict globally, therefore against divine law and any hope of peace and security globally! When those religions ignore Jehovah's divine law within and follow imperfect human public opinion there will be war and fighting needlessly. When people set their imperfect religious leaders up as gods not Jehovah God, conflicts will come globally! Make your choice, imperfect humans as gods or Jehovah God and his perfect law!

If we fully obney what Jesuys taught, the world would be perfect...
(Matthew 22:36-40) “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 He said to him: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 The second, like it, is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments the whole Law hangs, and the Prophets.”
It covers all 600 laws of the Jewish talmud.
If it is obeyed, no one would go to war or even sign up for it.
No police forces would be required...
God's solution to all our problems is simplt to REMOVE wicked people...
(Psalm 37:34) Hope in Jehovah and keep his way, And he will exalt you to take possession of the earth. When the wicked ones are cut off, you will see [it].Source(s): NWT

How idealistic! Theocratic States don't work very well as they restrict freedom. God is a God of Diveristy, so therefore society cannot be homoginized. Why do you think there are so many divisions in Christianity? Islam is much the same, it has many divisions. Judaism has many divisions and so on through all the religions.
God's Kingdom is within. Once you get yourself right with God, then you can set about making God's Kingdom on Earth. But it all starts with the individual.

Your golden rule( ten commandments written in stone) are not the new will! They have passed away!!!
2Cor3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
Your golden rule can never be the spiritual infrastructure. I am not a JW and all religion kills and the golden rule killed more people than any other!!!

God's heavenly government is based on more than just the so-called Golden Rule. What that government will shortly do is found at Dan. 2:44. There, it says: "During the reigns of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. It will crush all these kingdoms into nothingness, and it will stand forever."

Would you dis fellowship yourself? God loves everyone all sinners, he wants sinners to come to him and he loves the prodigal son the most. You shun people. Jesus christ said to love your enemy love is not shunning. We are not to judge and your elders do. You already have one failed prophecy. You are proud and stiff necked like the israelites. You take biblical prophecy from Daniel and revelations literally to prove your proud religion. Everyone knows the christian message nowadays. you don't have to knock on you neighbors door to tell them how they should believe. Modern witnessing is being involved with your community and following Jesus' teachings. You don't believe God is Omnipresent. How can you be so sure as a human being trapped in a physical body that you know where god is. How do you know that Satan has been the king of earth since 1914. You will need more than Bible verses to prove a linear time thing like that. I remember reading in one of your Awake publications an article titled "Was the Star of David From Satan?" And you really don't know why you are offensive to other Christians who perceive the bible not only literally but symbolically you say our holy trinity is a neo platonic idea so it is pagan?!Source(s): Ten weeks with the JWS

Yes, let the new system of Jehovah's great wisdom come soon! The leaders of this human system do not have a true clue how to run things! Ruin things they know well how to do that 100 %!Source(s): Bible Truth!
