The words that Yeshua wrote on stone tablets are listed at Exodus 34 and at Deut 5 (both written some 600 years after the Moses event. That is where the term "Ten Commandments" appear. The words at Exodus 20 were not written on stone tablets, despite Cecil B de Mille's movie. Doug  (Sunday Nov 16 | post #24)

Hi Kevin, You speak of "proof", but you have no proof, only the opinions that people wrote. You are maing the assertions but you have no proof. You do not provide any actual proof of who wrote, when they wrote, why they wrote, or whether what they wrote is true. You only have faith and hope, but no proof. Doug  (Sunday Nov 16 | post #23)

Does truth matter?

You hope, but you have no factual evidence. Your ideas come from Paul's mind and opinion. Imagine what the New Testament would look like if his writings and his influence were removed. That shows you the political control his adherents had when in the 4th century they selected the writings which would make up their scriptures. The Christians originated in Paul's church at Antioch, not from James' church at Jerusalem. Doug  (Saturday Nov 15 | post #41)

The "GOSPEL!"- Churchoids don't believe it!

Taking life is murder. How do you know that God gives life? How do you know that life belongs to any god? Doug  (Saturday Nov 15 | post #35)

As it was in the days of Noah - they were living normal lives, eating, drinking and marrying until God murdered them. Doug  (Saturday Nov 15 | post #33)

Why shouldn't the Bible be ignored? Which Bible do you mean? Doug  (Saturday Nov 15 | post #35)

Hi Nomi, I am not defending religion. They are all in the same boat. Doug  (Saturday Nov 15 | post #38)

Then how could anyone know where Truth resides? How can the WTS then complain about the beliefs presented by other organisations if they prepared to admit that their own beliefs are likely to be wrong and subject to change? Doug  (Saturday Nov 15 | post #37)

Jehovah's Witness

Does truth matter?

From The Watchtower, June 1, 1967, page 331, para 7: "Some have called Jehovah’s witnesses 'false prophets' because, in times past, they have viewed things a certain way and, later, have made a change through their official publications. Or, there may have been practices by some members in the organization that have been permitted to continue for a time for lack of knowledge as to how to handle these things, but later they have learned from God’s Word what his will is and have gone ahead and made the necessary corrections. False prophets do not correct themselves. God’s people do." ------------------ --- The following is a comment on the above words by Alan Rogerson in his book: “Millions Now Living Will Never Die: A Study of Jehovah’s Witnesses”, pages 82-83 (Constable, 1969): "It is typical of the Society to use even their errors as evidence that they are right: 'False prophets do not correct themselves'. They are making a virtue out of their repentance, forgetting about the fact that they were wrong! Of course it is better to repent of error than not to repent, but I should have thought it was more typical of God's•organisation not to make errors at all. The Witnesses' reply to this is that human beings are fallible and even those in God's organisation are not immune from error. It seems to me, however, that this makes it difficult to decide which is God's organisation if that too is prone to error, and the New World Society has made so many errors in the past that they do not appear to be the likely candidates."  (Friday Nov 14 | post #11)

Maybe that's the position that Elders are in. They know that if they do not follow the edicts from on high, they will be subject to the discipline that they were meant to hand out. A vicious circle. Doug  (Friday Nov 14 | post #3)

Is obedience to the GB more important than truth? Doug  (Friday Nov 14 | post #1)

Jehovah's Witness

The REAL Jesus- Hidden by CHURCHianity!

I believe that Jesus was an itinerant Jewish preacher who believed that the kingdom of God was imminent in his own time. The appearance of this kingdom was going to have immendiate and real outcomes such as the restoration of the nation and the removal of all oppression. Explain what you mean by saying that Jesus was a spirit and a human at the same time. Was he just a pretend human? Was the part of Jesus that died only his human part, but not his spirit part?

So you are incapable of refuting my statement, and have to resort to addressing me personally. Try using factual rational reasoning to respond to my statement. I wish you well, whatever you may believe. We may disagree but we must remain agreeable. Doug  (Friday Nov 14 | post #28)
