<quoted text>
ill just give u one that should shut it all down. if jesus is the savior and the book is from god then why cant the authors figure out who is josephs father. read matthew 1:16 and then read luke 3:23. u would think that god himself would atleast know jesus' mortal grandfather. take and do some real research other than from the ppl that gain from u believing in the book. u may find out things u never expected about the so called "good book". it is all here as a way to control the population cuz without god the world would alot different. ppl wouldnt put up with the dumbass politicians and all that is allowed to go happen just cause ppl are afraid they will go to hell if they dont follow all the little rules.
Jehovah witnesses will never question teachings of their sect? Unlike those who believe you will be punish in hell-fire forever, JW do not fear that teaching.

So what do Jehovah witnesses fear. It is a sin against the Holy Spirit and there lies the rub. If you sin against the holy spirit you will get no forgiveness ever!!!.

So how would one sin against the holy spirit. That would be by disagreeing with the watchtower teachings after you where baptized member that was once in good standing.

Example the watchtower teach that having a organ transplant would cause you to be dis-fellowship and disagreeing with the watchtower on this would be a sin against the holy spirit.

Does the holy spirit aka watchtower ever change its mind, yes it does. How does the holy spirit aka watchtower decide this?

Does the Holy Spirit (watchtower) guide them to examine scripture and arrive at a uniform consensus on what God's standard is? No, the vote does not have to be unanimous.

Actually, religion in general is losing. It's declining... So the "god" you believe in is losing, by your logic. The younger generations are becoming less religious. Generally speaking (& there are plenty of studies to back this up) the more educated you are = less religious.

I don't care what you believe in - this is a free country and you have the RIGHT to believe in and worship whatever you want - But religion doesn't belong in a public classroom. Separation of Church and State. Respect that, or send your kid(s) to a Christian school. Because you're not any more entitled than Atheists, Muslims, Agnostics, Buddhists, Agnostics, Satanists, etc etc. You're not. So stop acting like you are.

"What is it the Bible teaches us?-- rapine, cruelty, and murder. What is it the Testament teaches us?-- to believe that the Almighty committed debauchery with a woman engaged to be married, and the belief of this debauchery is called faith.”

"It is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene.”

Thomas Jefferson:

"There is not one redeeming feature in our superstition of Christianity. It has made one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites."

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise."

Well if they are going to teach religion in ky schools it should be world religion and taught by someone with a divity degree from a university and not some retard who got a degree from a bible college on the internet. And the class should be elective and cover all of the worlds religions not just a christian right wing agenda. Furthermore send your kids to sunday school. Nutrician classes would have a better long term impact.what ever happened to separation of church and state? Send your kids to private christian schools if you wish to program them that way.only in the south

The rule of seperation of Church and State was violated when it became law that it was OK to teach the unbelievable religion of evolution in public school! Can you explain why it is ok to teach one single religion at the exclusion of all others?

Yes... Because The Theory of Evolution is not a religion... It's is based on Evidence not Belief... It's basic concept can be changed at any time with the finding of new evidence...

Religion is based on Belief without a requirement for evidence, It's basic concept cannot be changed even in with evidence of it's errors..

See the difference?

The watchtower teach that having a blood tranfusion would cause you to be dis-fellowship and disagreeing with the watchtower on this teaching would be a sin against the holy spirit. Is that true?

Evolution is not based on faith with no evedence so it is not a religion.
Why do you insist on pushing your beliefs on to others? What makes you so special that you can push what you believe?
Please offer some proof that your beliefs are real

just my opinion wrote:
Isn't there a way that it could be taught and the parents have a choice as to whether their child did or did not attend that specific class? I myself think it is a good idea, but I can't speak for everyone. There is so much going on in our schools nowadays, maybe for some this will help. It's scary how things have become. When I attended high school, there was a class there, but it was our choice as to whether or not to attend. This is just my opinion.
I AGREE....I beeive there should be a CHOICE if we want our kids to attend a class like this. I say give it a trial-make it availble and LET PEOPLE CHOOSE if they want their kids involved. If it doesn't work-at least it was TRIED, and if it does work....it is just another foundation for our future generation.

why NOT give people a CHOICE. I understand there are numerous reigions, but there is only ONE God, and ONE hsot a life on earth-we all need to make the best of what we have, and a "education" about a loving God can't be all wrong :)

Very Good Question.

That is not to me but I think I know the answer to that question. I have relatives who are JW's.

First thing is they are required by Watchtower to preach what they have been taught.

Second, if they do not preach to others they would be charge with blood guilt of others because they did not fulfill their commission to preach the watchtower beliefs to give others a chance to become saved therefore be a sin for them.

Also,JW will claim the time they preach watchtower doctrine on topix forum and then is sent to the holy spirit board members of the watchtower for credit.

Third they cannot go against the watchtower teaching or they will be guilty of a unforgivable sin against the holy spirit (aka) the watchtower.

The fear of being shunned from friends and family members is very strong and the fear of sinning against the holy spirit is a even greater sin and they will never be the same with friends, family that belong to their religion or the watchtower.

So you can see this is a uphill battle to try and educate them on certain scientific theories that is not in agreement with the watchtower.

When you tell JW that Evolution is not a religion, they will disagree no matter what evidence is presented to them. That does not mean you should not try and refute the watchtower arguments if you can.

Other people reading topix would like to see both sides of this debate, thanks to those who are knowledgeable in these areas for their contribution to the debate.

No one is saying that you can not teach your beliefs to your children, you can send them to Sunday school. What we are saying is that your rights end where our rights begin so stay away from my children!
There are over two thousand Gods, but the christian god is not loving, have you ever read the bible? Your god is the most evil, hate filled, blood lusting being in fiction! ACTIONS speak louder than words! I wonder if you worship your god or cherry pick bible verses to justify yourself and ignore the rest?(do you really want young girls to read about Lot and think that god likes it when girls have sex with their own father?)
