Oh and one more thing I was talking to a black Jehovah's Witness today who is from Jamacia and he attends the Phillipian Congregation simply because he wants to learn the Phillipian language. He would also like to learn Japaneese but there are not enough here to form a Japaneese Congregation. A lot of Pureto Rican and Mexicans attend our English Congregation wanting to be able to speak better English. Another thing that will blow your mind is the fact I only have 9th grade education in the hills of VA,but I have been well educated in the Bible by attending the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses for over 40 years. And many others can attest to the same!
O.K I will just stick to other things, like the holy spirit(watchtower) was wrong again.

Raymond Franz claimed that in 1980, unease with doctrines surrounding the significance of 1914 surfaced within the Governing Body. In February of that year, three Governing Body members—aware that those who had been alive in 1914 were dying out despite the teaching that their generation would live to see Armageddon—proposed a doctrinal change to identify the "generation" who would see Armageddon.

Many years ago three soldiers, hungry and weary of battle, came upon a small village. The villagers, suffering a meager harvest and the many years of war, quickly hid what little they had to eat and met the three at the village square, wringing their hands and bemoaning the lack of anything to eat.

The soldiers spoke quietly among themselves and the first soldier then turned to the village elders. "Your tired fields have left you nothing to share, so we will share what little we have: the secret of how to make soup from stones."

Naturally the villagers were intrigued and soon a fire was put to the town's greatest kettle as the soldiers dropped in three smooth stones. "Now this will be a fine soup", said the second soldier; "but a pinch of salt and some parsley would make it wonderful!" Up jumped a villager, crying "What luck! I've just remembered where some's been left!" And off she ran, returning with an apronful of parsley and a turnip. As the kettle boiled on, the memory of the village improved: soon barley, carrots, beef and cream had found their way into the great pot, and a cask of wine was rolled into the square as all sat down to feast.

They ate and danced and sang well into the night, refreshed by the feast and their new-found friends. In the morning the three soldiers awoke to find the entire village standing before them. At their feet lay a satchel of the village's best breads and cheese. "You have given us the greatest of gifts: the secret of how to make soup from stones", said an elder, "and we shall never forget." The third soldier turned to the crowd, and said: "There is no secret, but this is certain: it is only by sharing that we may make a feast". And off the soldiers wandered, down the road.

Liberalism thinking has become a religion in itself. Those with that particular mind set worship at the altar of pro choice, environmentalism, animal rights, gay marriage, etc. They have no problem infusing these beliefs and doctrines into modern education. They need to be more diversity minded and not be against other beliefs. I say the more people know Jesus the Christ, the more we increase our chances of saving this country from the collapse we are racing toward

Tenure is not immunity, it merely provides a process by which a position is not terminated without due cause. How ironic is it when ignorami think teachers are the bad guys?

So the christian cult is the majority? Well that explains the vastness of Internet porn, strip clubs, bars, pedophiles, murderers, rapist, thieves.
Most people who do not believe in "god" will claim to be christian when confronted in public about religious beliefs to avoid persecution. The number of people who go to church at least one day a year makes the christian cult a very small minority.
The true number of "christians" is about one fourth of the claimed number.(even most Satanist will lie and say they are christian to avoid losing their jobs and having protesters outside their homes)

Then why do christians ignore their bible? How come christians get angry when bible verses are pointed out to them?
Do YOU follow your bible? Than you have long hair, do not eat pork, sell your daughters, kill children, oh? You do not do any of that? Times have changed? Please tell me the bible verse that says the bible changes with the times.(and you do not do those things anymore because we will not allow you too)
Oh, you are not under the old law? Please show me the bible verse that says that because the earth has not passed away
“For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 5:18-19 RSV) Clearly the Old Testament is to be abided by until the end of human existence itself. None other then Jesus said so.
2) All of the vicious Old Testament laws will be binding forever. "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." (Luke 16:17 NAB)
3) Jesus strongly approves of the law and the prophets. He hasn’t the slightest objection to the cruelties of the Old Testament. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place." (Matthew 5:17 NAB)
3b) "All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness..." (2 Timothy 3:16 NAB)
3c) "Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God." (2 Peter 20-21 NAB)
DONT PREACH OR PUSH YOUR BIBLE WHEN YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN IT YOURSELF!
Hey, are the disciples of jesus still alive? Because they where promised that jesus would return in their generation, guess the bible was wron, oh in case you have not heard the earth is round and illness is caused by germs not unclean spirits, guess the christian cult is wrong about a lot of things
