Nothing but mindless sheep and with more people being able to read the less sheep you have.
What makes you think that you are above hundreds of millions of Americans?
"with more people being able to read the less sheep you have"...
Wrong!
I read just fine...
I see the Truth in the Gospel of Christ in the Holy Bible!
Even when it speaks of people like you...
It speaks the Truth!
Thanks again for proving the Bible with your inane posts!

You still haven't answered my question. How could a god who is supposedly loving be more cruel than man?

See, you don't even have the Golden rule right!
"Do unto others, as you'd have them do to you!"
I will explain the differences.
"Do unto others as they have done unto you."
That is Revengeful... Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord!
Say yer on the 405, and the guy behind you accidently bumps
yer car... you get mad, and put it in reverse, and bump him
back! This happens a few times, and you both get out of your
cars, guns drawn, and blazzing...
A wild shot kills a child you say you want to protect...
All because... You did what was done to you...
instead of "FORGIVING" as you should have!
Doing as you'd want someone to do to you...
If yer hungry, need gas for yer car ti get to a
Dr's appointment, or a job interview...
Go find a good church, and you will receive Grace,
and what you are in need of... Not vengeance!
Yer right about the "Golden Rule," YaA - except you know full well that Christians pick and choose when to use the Exodus "eye for an eye" or the Matthew "eye for an eye" - it all boils down to who and what the offender is.
Yes and Amen

Because Jesus said in the New Testament, "If you love Me, you will keep my Father's Commandments, but the Greatest of ALL commands IS LOVE." Not being under the Old Law means no more "Blood Sacrificing." JESUS was the LAST & ULTIMATE BLOOD SACRIFICE!
Amen!

No, not better.
The Bible is the word of the catholic councils. The NWT is the word of Fredrick Franz. The Watchtower is the word of your Governing Board.
The Governing Board blame Fredrick Franz brother Raymond for the failed 1975 prophesy about armageddon.

The 15 May 1980 issue of The Watchtower issued a statement of regret that its assertions of probability of Armageddon arriving before 1975 had "apparently overshadowed the cautionary ones and contributed to a buildup of expectation already initiated."[14] It told disappointed Jehovah's Witnesses, "including persons having to do with the publication of the information that contributed to the buildup of hopes centred on that date" to "concentrate on adjusting his viewpoint".[15] This statement, which placed blame for the disappointment about 1975 on Raymond Franz and his writing committee, precipitated a purge of that committee and eventual disfellowshipping of its sometime Chairman.[16] On May 8 1980 Franz was told that he had been implicated as an apostate.

Really???
What were Christ's words on this subject?
Do you think He lied?
NO!
In the verses I quoted you earlier...
It's the simplicity of the Gospel...
So even "They" could receive it... IF they wanted!
No extra books, magic plates, or whatever... Just Christ!
Amen!
Jesus never wrote anything - or if he did, "God" saw fit to destroy every trace of reference or evidence.

Simplicity.

First of all I am thoroughly convienced (not by blind faith) that the Bible is indeed the word of God. One is it's eternal harmony.
There are several other reasons that convences me that we(Jehovhh's Witnesses) do indeed have the truth! One is we (me included) base everything we teach on God's word the Bible. John 8:31,32 17:3 17:17 and 1John 5:19
Is that better?
LOL! No it is not. Adding a pointless preamble to what you said before and then repeating what you said before does nothing. I'm curious about this too. Why are you so convinced (note the spelling by the way) that what you believe is the truth? I believe this is the part where you're supposed to start reciting fulfilled prophecies isn't it? You're not following your script.

All fundies are arrogant in my opinion, but JWs have the most hubris. You believe you have logic and data on your side, but when push comes to shove you will deflect and avoid like the rest of your ilk.

No doubt. When are they supposed to use "eye for an eye" and when are they supposed to "turn the other cheek"?

The rest of it? God smote kingdoms and gave the lands to the Jews, then the Jews got "smote" and it was all the children of Edom's fault? Yer double standards are showing.

You are just like FOX news - defending your right to cherry pick AND LIE by virtue of the first amendment.

Perhaps teaching the Bible as literature should be allowed in schools. One would have to have at least some knowledge of it to understand the vast majority of western literature, and philosophy. Some may say that's an unacceptable risk in even allowing the Bible in public schools. I however will disagree, not only in light of the former but, because one sure way to turn someone away from Christianity is to let them learn more of the Bible. The Bible however vitriolic someone may view it is ingrained in our culture, and rather than running from it we should face it understand it as a fiction, and leave religion in the annals of our past.

Definitely not cruel. NOTHING BAD comes from God. BAD things come from Satan. Not hard to figure that one out if you have read the Bible.
Thank you Jesus for your UNCONDITIONAL LOVE... I LOVE YOU... Ill praise you always. TY TY TY words cannot even begin to express this love. Hate even included in same sentence with God is not close to accurate. The most important of these is LOVE. That's what our God is about. Love love love

It appears to be arbitrary depending on the denomination - you'd have to ask an expert like Bill O'Reilly for specifics.
As near as I can tell, it's turn the other cheek when it's a 'fallen' preacher (who promptly begs forgiveness when caught) or a Wall Street banker.
For others? Beat the f out of them and build another prison if they don't prostrate themselves before Jay-sus or are some other kind of leftist degenerate homo loving 47%er gun hating drug abusing heathen.
In some cases, all that's required is to say "I don't think it says that" to get b!tch-slapped right out of the Kingdom Hall.

So we could live eternally with Him... It's true. I'm living proof. Proof is all around us! Thank you Father for saving me. For my RESCUE. never let me forget what You saved me from.
Than answer the question. Who did your god have to make a sacrifice (of jesus) to? And why would an all powerful god have to sacrifice to another God?
