For those who may not know the use of the word APOSTATE: Here are some of the Bibles use of the word
Job 8:13
Thus are the pathways of all those forgetting God,
And the very hope of an apostate will perish.
Job 20:5
That the joyful cry of wicked people is short
And the rejoicing of an apostate is for a moment?
Job 36:13
And those apostate in heart will themselves lay up anger.
Proverbs 11:9
By [his] mouth the one who is an apostate brings his fellowman to ruin, but by knowledge are the righteous rescued.
Is it true that JW's have changed the teachings that those born in the year 1914 that many of them alive on that date would never die?

Or is it true what Nephilim said that your church change that teaching to mean "born on that date or after" so they can kick the can down the road to mean at anytime?

If so, and the watchtower is guided by the Holy Spirit as what to write, why do they change their teachings if found to be incorrect?

Now see man, that's what happens when you only rely on what the JWs teach you. Nephilims were not born to demons, the bible says "that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose."
And yes, the Nephilims survived the flood, "There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight."
Do a little research other than the Watchtower publications. Google 'JWs miracle wheat' if you want to read about Russel's magic wheat he was selling.
JW's think everything is a demon. I haven't met one that isn't scared shitless thinking they're constantly surrounded by "demons". I used to think it was funny, but now I find it sad. It must be terrifying.

They kept changing their definition of generation over the years to keep everyone thinking it was any day now. A generation is around thirty years so after the thirty years they say a generation is anyone that was 15 or older who could understand what happened in 1914. After those years came and went they changed it to anyone who was born on 1914. Now that that generation passed away they have some new light about an "over lapping generation" that is any moment now.
These guys have been screaming its the end for over a 100 years and have never gotten anything right.
These two scriptures can show how religious claims can be dismissed by anyone, simple evidence of claims.

“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him”(Deut. 18:22).

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Yet, one must be careful, because science can do what religion once claimed only a God could do. Religion can just claim God did it.

But isn't this just the way religions work? lol

I mean, the Bible itself says that the people Jesus was literally talking to would not die before "these things are fulfilled". And we're still waiting. And the apologists are doing the song and dance number about the word having different meanings (meanings they mostly invented for the purpose of explaining away this annoying verse).

These nutty faiths reinvent themselves constantly in order to stay alive. Mormons, who historically thought black people were more sinful and less "delightsome", suddenly embraced blacks when the Civil Rights era really kicked into the general population in the 70s. And that's just one of the MANY things Mormons have toned down in order to appear like normal people.

JWs are just as bad, or worse. They know they cannot survive if they don't tone down their nuttier beliefs. So they do.

In 30 years there might be a JW that is no different from any other church, Baptist or otherwise. They are all sort of toning it down, muddying the waters, blending themselves a bit. Trying to form a block against the rising number of rational people who simply look at that sh*t and laugh.

No buddy, it's still funny. They released a children's movie to train their young about the "dangers of demon toys" and it's about a little boy and Sparlock the Wizard Warrior. Check it out when you get a chance, it's funny. The cartoon is at the end but its worth watching it all.

I see no reason to assume Noah was a real person at all. Let alone how many boats he had, lol. He's a figure in an old story, and not an original story either. The Epic of Gilgamesh had nearly the exact same story.
The Nile is a big river, and it was the highway of the Egyptians. Lots of boats. Makes sense if you believe in an afterlife and want to continue to be rich and powerful...need a boat.
In duh desert?

A fleet of camels, one with proper sunblocking accessories, and a few good men for hauling junk would suffice better LOL.

So the JWs used EOC supplies in rebuilding kingdom halls... Interesting. I wonder how many other tax exempt churches we paid for repairs on? What a patriotic and honorable use of taxpayer funds. I certainly would be interested to learn God fearing man Gov. Christ appointed as the EOC chair.
It was not building supplies....it was food and medical supplies. What other religion did you bash for having access to those supplies...or do you think only atheists should get them? After all Jehovah's Witnesses pay their taxes. The religious organization has the same tax exemption as any other religion has! What is your point?

It was interesting to listen to the JW blatantly talk about how animated videos are a great way to brainwash kids at an early age. Well, it seemed blatant to me.
That poor little animated bastard is going to grow up terrified that he's surrounded by demons and every non-JW he knows is a "bad association".

There is no truth to what you just posted. It is nothing more than a rumor.

Calling people names is a cheap shot in defending a belief such as yours. Just admit you don't now how to respond or explain your position when bragging about how JW's help other JW's in need while ignoring non-jw's in of help.

So explain why you let someone who is not a JW in need of shelter,food,medical assistance suffer when you have the means to help them at that moment?

How could you look across the street and see someone in need of and regard them and just worm bait because they do not belong to your religious group?

Medical supplies from the FDEM?? Get real.
Any money that the JWs didn't spend on bottled water and Gatorade could be spent on a new roof. Individuals in the congregation pay taxes, not the organization. So how much of those supplies did y'all offer any of your disfellowshipped amigos? Let me guess, could it be - NONE?
What other religion? Any that are tax exempt, of course. Baptist, Buddhist, or Bohemian Tulip Worshipers - take your pick.
If you have the means to pay in to the system and finagle a way not to, why should you get any MORE freebies when the sh*t hits the fan? Print a half million fewer sheets of toilet paper and buy an insurance policy like everybody else.

How did you get the notion that I don't lump Catholics with Baptists, Shiites and JWs into the same seething mass? I hadn't heard that Catholics had asked for any FEMA or FDEM supplies, but if they did I'd not spare them the speech. When a Catholic gets uppity and starts proselytizing their sect and pushing their agenda(s) on the rest of the country, be assured I "pick on" them, too.
