Rutherford, paakabvunza kuti: “Vose vane tariro yokurarama pasi pano nokusingaperi vangasimuka here?” yaipfuura hafu yevanhu vaivepo yakasimuka! Akabva ati, “Tarirai, boka guru!” Vakawanda vakafara chaizvo kuti vakanga vava kunzwisisa tariro yavo yeramangwana.

Vaya vakavimbika kuUmambo hwaMwari vachitongwa naKristu havafaniri kukanganisa kuvimbika kwavo nokupindira muboka chero ripi zvaro riri musangano raSatani. (2 VaK. 6:17) Izvozvo zvinorevei?

21. (a) Muranda akatendeka agara achinyevera sei vanhu vaMwari nezvemabhizimisi makuru? (b) Muna 1963, Nharireyomurindi yakaratidza kuti “Bhabhironi Guru” rinomiririrei?

21 Muranda akatendeka agara achifumura uori huri mumabhizimisi makuru, achinyevera vanhu vaMwari kuti vasafurirwa nawo kukara pfuma.
