As I've said, Christ said that there would be a falling away from His church before His return. An apostasy. He also said He had other sheep not of their fold to tend to. Could those other people not write what they witnessed when He visited?
You have a destorted view of the other sheep. WHO REALLY ARE THE OTHER SHEEP? Actually there are two groups of righteous people!
When I went to school it was told to me that you can get to the bottom of any subject (Police use it all of the time) if you can answer the who,what,when, where,how and why, about any matter you can solve it. So why dont we do that with the two groups of righteous people. There are two groups as indicated by Jesus at Matthew 5:3 says the kingdom of heaven belongs to them." That is one group. and 5:5 refers to the other group when it says, "Blessed are the meek for thay shall inherit the earth". The first group are referred to again at Luke 12:32 “Have no fear, little flock, because YOUR Father has approved of giving YOU the kingdom.
The other group is referred to at John 10:16 “And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; those also I must bring, and they will listen to my voice, and they will become one flock, one shepherd.(This second group could not possible be the American Indians.)
Both groups have the one shepherd (Jesus) and are one flock. The major difference is one group goes to heaven to rule with Jesus Rev.5:10 and the orher group will inherit the earth. Pslam 37:29
The major difference is they have two different inheritances, one is Heavenly rulership, and the other is earthly inheritance.
Now if we can use the above system to help us to identify each group. It's late and I'm tired I'll have to pick this up at another time.
Have a goodnight,

So you disagree with teaching children facts and science. Look, I know you think that being an idiot is good, but why do you want to force children to be idiots like you?
There are two different ideas of what makes an idot! One is not the belief in scientific fact which is entirely different from the idiotic idea of some evolution THEORY WITH ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT IT! Now who is the idiot?

I have come to the same conclusion as the Apostle Paul.
Common sense will tell you anything left to it's own will deterioate instead of evolve.
Jehovah's Witnesses published a book "LIFE - How Did It Get Here? By Evolution Or By Creation?" You would do well to obtain a copy of that book (it is free) because it has been thoroughly researched on both sides of the issue. If after examining that book if you are not convienced that we were created then there is nothing I can say that will change your mind.
As you said to each his own.
This is why it is impossible to take you seriously. I'm aware of the book you mentioned. I don't know if you realize it or not, but that book is an absolute joke outside the Watchtower circles. By "thoroughly researched" you can only mean it was ripped to shreds a million times by scientists and skeptics and people who still have enough brain cells to rub together to recognize garbage when they see it.

I don't understand how you could possibly think that book is respected outside your church. I'm not even a scientist and I can tell you it is complete nonsense.

You would do better to simply have your faith and stop trying to paint it as rational. It is not rational, nor is it supported by evidence. But the last time I checked evidence was not an element of faith to begin with.

A who's who of crazy. I love how the Creationist Clowns love to put "Dr" in front of their names. Lee Strobel is a journalist. He got an honorary doctorate from a Christian school. So when he is presented as "Dr" Lee Strobel it sounds like he has real academic credentials. But nobody - and I mean NOBODY - takes this guy seriously outside the nuttiest of nutterburg.

Bible study rules because children need to learn morality as well as they need to learn the facts of life.

If you use the Bible as a moral authority how do you decide which stories are teaching good morals and which are not? Obviously this is one of reasons we have so many different churches. Nobody can agree.

If the Bible was a clearly written, unified source of moral authority then we could easily figure out how to behave using the book and we wouldn't argue about it.

Yet what you really find are stories in which God tells his people to kill babies, stories about obeying your masters to the death, lessons on how to treat your slaves, condemnations of homosexuals, witches, and a general disdain for women.

Hidden in all that garbage are a few decent lines about being a good person. Even the beloved sermon on the mount includes language that is not morally sound, as well as a ton of contradictions.

(Iron Chariots Wiki has an excellent smackdown of the sermon on the mount: http://wiki.ironchariots.org/index.php... )

When you have a huge book full of varying ideas and you give them book moral authority you have created a way in which people can be subjugated. Then a charismatic leader will come along and dumb people will flock to him and you end up with with Jonestown, Westboro, or the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC:

Yeah. Its a great idea to give a**holes that that guy a book and call it divine moral authority.

Our new Pope chose the namesake of his order, "Saint Francis of Assisi, the 13th century Catholic friar and preacher who founded the beggar-monk movement through his Franciscan order. He emphasized a life of asceticism and humility, and created a powerful voice for the poor the church couldn't ignore."
http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist...

Same sex marriage is the opposite of the Franciscan ideal; hedonism over asceticism and lust for political power redefining marriage for everyone over humility.

Same sex marriage is wrong because its too much to ask and a violation of taboo.

Jeremiah 25:32,33
Dead bodies from one end of the earth to the other end
“This is what Jehovah of armies has said,‘Look! A calamity is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest itself will be roused up from the remotest parts of the earth. 33 And those slain by Jehovah will certainly come to be in that day from one end of the earth clear to the other end of the earth. They will not be bewailed, neither will they be gathered up or be buried. As manure on the surface of the ground they will become.’
34 “Howl, YOU shepherds (religious leaders), and cry out! And wallow about, YOU majestic ones of the flock, because YOUR days for slaughtering and for YOUR scatterings have been fulfilled, and YOU must fall like a desirable vessel! 35 And a place to flee to has perished from the shepherds, and a means of escape from the majestic ones of the flock. 36 Listen! The outcry of the shepherds, and the howling of the majestic ones of the flock, for Jehovah is despoiling their pasturage. 37 And the peaceful abiding places have been rendered lifeless because of the burning anger of Jehovah. 38 He has left his covert just like a maned young lion, for their land has become an object of astonishment because of the maltreating sword and because of his burning anger.”
Two things!

(1) I did not recognise these verses, and had to read them in my refferences, are these from your JW Bible?

(2) you gave Jeremiah 25:32,33, and posted to 38!
As always in a posted read, I go back a few verses to get the whole picture.

I've linked my online resource for you!
Hope you find it usefull!
Also... You can go to the store, and find Libronix digital Bible refferences!
God Bless!

go and read the bible and then u might be able to understand what im sayin then. i find it funny that the believers hardly ever know anything in the bible except for jesus died for me and all i gotta do is believe and get baptised and im goin to heaven. the problem is they fail to read all the fine print in the book just as ppl dont read fine print in contracts. not one single person i know of in america is a real christian, no matter if u say u are or not. i can show the scriptures to prove it cuz i do actually know whats in the book but when u do point it out in the bible they will still ignore it cuz they think they can change gods word to what suits them just as u do everyday yourself. hypocrisy is worse than sinning u know, all the christian hypocrites will be in hell with the atheist if the abrahamic god is the real one out of all the others, that is if there is a god at all anyway.
Do you think the thief on the cross next to Jesus...
Fallowed the commandments, and was Baptized?
No! it was a change of heart! He repented!

See, you want to pick and choose from your bible with out reading it or knowing much about the god you worship or the bible you want to teach.
Why not write a new bible and create another new god, you can make jesus English or French instead of a towelhead
