11 Not what enters into [his] mouth defiles a man; but
it is what proceeds out of [his] mouth that defiles a man.
12 Then the disciples came up and said to him: Do you know that the Pharisees stumbled at hearing what you said?
13 In reply he said: Every plant that my heavenly Father did not plant will be uprooted [Its root will be exposed, its source will be revealed].
14 Let them be. Blind guides is what they are. If, then, a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.
15 By way of response Peter said to him: Make the illustration plain to us [1NCs].
16 At this he said: Are you also yet without understanding?
17 Are you not aware that everything entering into the mouth passes along into the intestines and is discharged into the sewer?
18 However, the things proceeding out of the mouth come out of the heart, and those things defile a man.
19 Out of for the heart come out reasonings wicked,
murders, adulteries, fornications, thieveries, false testimonies, blasphemies [2x+2x+2x+2x+2x+2x+2x=14x].
(Matthew 15 KIT)
20 These are the things defiling a man; but to take a [Passover] meal with unwashed hands [unclean works, a false church] does not defile a man. (Matthew 15 NWT)
This is a further specification of the list of things defiling a man - see the list specification principle of the code. So it counts precisely from 2005Iyyar14, when the Watchtower fell as a true church, to 2019Iyyar14 when the Laodicean Passover was eaten as a false church before they were reappointed as a true church on 2019Ab21 (5th 1NC and reappointed Laodicean first fruits)
14 So, calling the crowd [all
JWs] to him again, he proceeded to say to them: Listen to me, all of
you, and get the meaning.
15 There is nothing from outside a man that passes into him that can defile him; but the things that issue forth out of a man are the things that defile a man.
17 Now when he had entered a house away from the crowd, his disciples began to question him respecting the illustration.
18 So he said to them: Are you also without perception like them? Are you not aware that nothing from outside that passes into a man can defile him,
19 since it passes, not into [his] heart, but into [his] intestines, and it passes out into the sewer? Thus he declared all foods clean.
20 Further, he said: That which issues forth out of a man is what defiles a man;
21 from inside for out of the heart of the men the
reasonings, the bad, are going out: fornications, thieveries, murders,
22 adulteries, covetings, acts of wickedness, deceit, loose conduct, eye wicked, blasphemy, haughtiness, unreasonableness [2x+2x+2x+2x+2x+2x+1x+1x+1x+1x+1x+1x = 18x]; (Mark 7 KIT)
23 All these wicked things issue forth from within and defile a man. (Mark 7 NWT)
This is a further specification of the list of things defiling a man. So it counts as 18x precisely.
The Watchtower was defiled by the abomination causing desolation which was the awful Letter to Bethels of 2001Heshvan10/11 showing no repentance at being exposed for putting the throne of Satan into the temple of Jehovah and for riding the wild beast of the UN as a Harlot church (in the words of Charles Russell their founder). As a result they lost their 3EC water baptism on 2001Heshvan14 and became defiled. Whereas the 2nd Watchtower Passover of the 1NC reserves from the Watchtower congregations was 2019Heshvan14. That is when the defilement of all JW 1NC reserves (who made the 3rd or 4th marriage) ended (by CRC baptism). So they were defiled as a 1NC reserve composite man, for 18 years precisely. So these 18x are the 18 Times of the Watchtower 1NC Reserve Defiling Times!
