@ Roboblogger....you really must go back to spelling classes..It's Jehovah's not Jehovaha's.. Install spell check into your browser and you would have recognized your mistake.
Anyway....K H and Assembly Halls are being built everywhere, where interest is growing, unlike other denomination's where people are Christian in name only. We call them, CINO's

But we call JW's as 'DEADBRAINS'.

If you are a nonjw and very active in supporting the various aspects of your DENOMNATION to help persons both spiritually and physically this is how jw are taught to view ANYONE NOT PART OF THE JW denomination

"unlike other denomination's where people are Christian in name only. We call them, CINO's"

Jw in private are very insulting of other DENOMNATIONS even though when they come to your house sat morning they appear kind

This poster here has revealed how they really feel about you as a nonjw

. over the years I have seen this many times... And I was never impressed.. BUT! the truth of their real feelings generally comes from their lips when they feel they a superior.

One wonders why the line ..do not run day care .. bake sales .or food pantries would enter in the conversation.. It's well know that the Church doesn't do theses things.. And yet..for many Churches these services are available.. Not only aiding the church but those in need ..with no prejudice.. All...is a part of showing love for your fellowman... And yet.. is considered non-essential and looked down upon by the Church as wrong...
.
. They look at the Church as the house of GOD..and yet forget that ( Our body is the temple GOD resided in.) GOD ..has said there is no building that can contain me..

They will build this KH, and the people inside will pay for it until the day they die without it ever belonging to them. It should belong to those who pay for it.

So if i'm understanding the thought's being presented here are accurate. The people who are Catholic, should own the church they are worshipping in, right?...The Mormon worshipper should own the ward/church they are worshipping in...The Baptist should own the church they are worshipping in...You see how ridiculous the statements are here. Why should the J W own the K H they are worshipping in. All worship type property becomes owned by the mother church. Hence the catholic church if it sells the building will retain the money in their treasury for further expansion where they deem necessary...We do have private church groups like Graham, and all those southern Pentecostal/ Baptist groups that have large auditoriums to fill with their believers, but as a whole, the people have no say as to who gets the money if a CHURCH ..K H is Sold.

. The question is..why not..they paid for it.. And may have even been the ones that donated the property... FOR the use of the people that gathered there.. The question one might ask is ..why the WTS..insists that they are not as other churches..AND yet.. totally are..in anything that has to do with material gain???

In the 50's the members gathered in the home of a member.... Later they rented a room or building to gather in.. AND paid rent...Then many of the cong... saved up money and got a BANK loan to build their own space... HMM! wasn't until the WTS.. figured out that ..all that money..would come to them..If they formed a money changer ..and a committee to govern the building and buying and selling.. STILL...paid for out of the pockets of the members .. who they had convinced that this arrangement was as GOD would want it. AND constructed by the unpaid slaves ... Seems that the scriptures ..on the unpaid slaves .. needing a wage.. as their labor and lively hoods are also important.. Are set aside ..and not looked at to closely... Doesn't amaze me as to how often GOD's word is not listen to or not applied to the Church..
Yet..Paul... who was pretty much the spokes person for the Christian's way back when... Spoke of the fact that... HE.. did not want to pose a burden on the people...

If the members are paying for the church, why should anyone own it but the members of the church? JWs will pay for their KH for the rest of their lives and never own it, do you really see that being right? The church, KH, belongs to God.
If construction needs to be done to improve the church, the members should be able to make a vote on it. If you need a bigger church, the members should be able to vote on it. Why does the members of a KH have no say in what it done to a KH?

Property is bought and paid for by the people who have the money, when a religious organization buys property, it is bought for those of that religion.
The religion expects it's members to support and care for that property, funding the mortgage or whatever is needed to keep that religions property functioning.

Many Jehovah's witnesses support their local Kingdom Halls by working as builders on that property or anyway they choose, monetarily is just one way.
Just as Noah inherited the earth after his world was destroyed, Jehovah's witnesses will have the pick of properties to work with, you can be there too, you must repent and get saved by Jehovah God.
Psalm 37:11

But JW never said that they will have the pick of properties!!! You are now calling Aneirin and other JWs here liars by saying that. Do you realize how disgusting that is to even think about moving into someone else's home, they died because they were not a Jehovah's witness?
Exactly where is this teaching in the bible?
Just like Noah inherited a empty earth, that is what will be on this earth after God cleanses it. You might want to think of buying a tent. ;)

Yes, he could. But for some reason, he isn't. Maybe I am not doing what I am suppose to in some area? Maybe he is using this to prove something to me, or someone else. Maybe he is using it to show my daughters, and grandchildren, how even with this horrible pain in my knees, it does not keep me from going to church or sharing Gods words with those I meet. He has his reasons, and I do not question him about it.

Can you show us where the congregation members of these other churches are required to get a LOAN from the mother church in order to build their place of worship and then are required to make monthly payments to the mother church to pay back that loan? And, of course, when the new mandates are put in place for the JWs, they will not only have to repay the loan, but they will be expected to continue paying that loan amount even after the original amount is paid off.

Is this what you are claiming happens in these other denominations? Can you provide proof of your claims?

its because the gifts of the spirit including "healing" are for the building up of the body of christ in faith, not for your continual personal health...... its for a sign.
in third world countries, where christianity is still just being started, there are many miracles happening because its giving evidence of the holy spirit working on the body of christ......... in other places, it doesn't happen that much cause a lot of christian congregations have seen it, but don't respond much........ they are in their little bubble of comfort.

stop listening to mr womack.

Ok let's assume for the sake of this conversation he exists and is what you believe him to be. He is then all powerful right? You do not think that is just a wee bit cruel to watch you struggle in pain when he simply will your knees to be healed?? He may be using you to teach someone else a lesson?? At your expense? Please explain the love in this to me Karen.
