I think men who are clean, and dressed in suits and ties are more to be commended today, than people who are critical and negative as you are.

Living by the Bible standards to be true Christians is not easy, so being obese is not just a witness trait, it is now an American trait.

nowhere in the Bible is commandment to wear suit,tie, shave face, and white shirts
ALSO JW VIOLATE REV 22;18-19,
and are in cnflict with God,because imitate on daily base customs of this wicked demonic world.

so?get heal yourselves,and don'nt be stupid to back up,those proud guys called yourselves jw,

There are more obese people in America than Jehovah's witnesses for sure.

Being obese is a human failing today, greed and glutony are sins that affect your spirituality and everyone will be individually judged by Jesus for our obedience to his requirements.

(Luke 21:34-36). . .“But pay attention to yourselves that YOUR hearts never become weighed down with overeating and heavy drinking and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day be instantly upon YOU

35 as a snare. For it will come in upon all those dwelling upon the face of all the earth. 36 Keep awake, then, all the time making supplication that YOU may succeed in escaping all these things that are destined to occur, and in standing before the Son of man.”

Does this apply to overweight GB members?

I would rather weigh 350 pounds than to be called obese.

There are plenty of obese Americans, everywhere. The epidemic is not confined to any one group.

Our nation is overweight. Period.

The poster who singled this out and had nothing else productive to offer is a "complete moron"

==========

The JW's appeared to be clean, neat and orderly and with their complete undivided attention focused on spiritual matters during their convention. That is what is most important.

Do JWS prefer Burger King or Macdonalds? They should know that both have products that have blood in it.

I was there. Just slipped in out of curiosity. They really are using lazers to zap people and or places. This conference was nothing but a gathering to share more technological advances in lazer weaponry and how to apply it for bettering their brain washing techniques.

The difference is that JWs are meant to be following the bible. Gluttony is meant to be a disfellowshipping offence. So why are obese JWs not kicked out of the org?

You are not able to kick their a... from KH,
because if they stack in the small chairs,they are not able to be thrown away, only with chair.
but greed of wtbs jw does'nt allow to do this;

for example 1000 fat obese pigs jw kicked out with 1000 chairs-making financial lost of at least 3000 dollars,
not telling worldwide disfallowship fat pigs and chairs?

organization would have to after this,start to be unemploye,and make worlwide double begging campaign for money to buy used chairs again,and again stack fat obese jw in the chairs,

chain reaction would be complete dissaster of their financies and greed to be big kings in the NEW WORLD ORDER

ALSO HURRRRRAAAAA OBESE JW
