Nisithola kanjani isibalo samalungu enu?

Esibabala njengoFakazi BakaJehova yilabo kuphela abashumayela izindaba zoMbuso kaNkulunkulu zinyanga zonke. (Mathewu 24:14) Lokhu kuhlanganisa labo ababhapathizwe njengoFakazi kanye nalabo abangakabhapathizwa, kodwa abakufanelekayo ukwenza umsebenzi wokushumayela.

Ingabe umuntu kumelwe anikele ngemali ukuze abe ilungu lenu?

Cha. Iminikelo ayihlobene nokubalwa komuntu njengoFakazi noma ukuthi unesabelo noma amalungelo athile enhlanganweni yethu. (IzEnzo 8:18-20) Eqinisweni, iminikelo eminingi yenziwa ngasese. UFakazi ngamunye unikela ngesikhathi, amandla nangezinto zakhe emsebenzini wethu womhlaba wonke kuye ngokwesifiso nezimo zakhe.​—2 Korinte 9:7.
