King of the North

I can't see that the knowledge would help them in any way. It is available to anyone willing to put forth the effort to figure it out. There are only 4 beasts mentioned in Daniel. Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece, and the last one that remains until the end. That would lead one to believe that the King of the north is an individual, not a kingdom.  (20 hrs ago | post #5)

Am I an annointed One?

Anointed means set apart for special service to God. If you are anointed, you should be able to determine just what that special service to God is, through the pages of the bible. No man can tell you whether you are anointed. Only God. The fact that you question, instead of self determining is a healthy approach. My advice, as having gone through some questioning of my own, is let it in God's hands. If He wants yo to do something for Him, He will tell you personally. You won't have to guess.  (Yesterday | post #2)

4,70,000 errors, mistakes, contradictions in bible

How does that answer my question? Which of those 50,000 supposed errors are not based on opinion?  (Yesterday | post #7)

4,70,000 errors, mistakes, contradictions in bible

Which part of these 470,000 identified errors, mistakes, contradictions, and inconsistencies, falls out of the realm of opinion? boil that down to a manageable number, then we can discuss them.  (Wednesday | post #2)

Are Jehovah Witness difficult to reason with on a person...

It can be difficult to actually get to them reason on anything. They already believe they are on the correct track, so even if you show them a fault, or misdirect, they will usually just view it as an anomaly, or someone's personal failure. To actually get them to see they are doing no more than following men will take personal interest, or that miracle that was mentioned on another thread. How hard is it to find someone with personal integrity in this day and age? Solomon said 1 per 1000 in his time. Take that multiplier and divide it by the percentage of Jehovah's Witnesses in the general population, and that should give you your success rate. You can apply this formula to any group, but I doubt it is accurate any more. It's probably more like 1 in 10,000 now. Men are much more full of themselves in this "civilized world" of today. It's the age of "enlightenmen t".  (Tuesday Aug 25 | post #2)

So Adam & Eve

As a rule, JW's don't know the bible. You never ask anyone's view on the bible, that I've seen. That requires a whole different approach than you have. I have been familiar with what the WTBTS has been pushing for more than twice the time you've said you have put in. You've never asked me about anything biblical, neither has Tim. You've not asked anything directly related to the bible, at all. Take your own advice and stop badmouthing the bible, when you don't even seem to know what's in it. All you seem to know is what others say about it. So much for the 20 years you said you've put in with the WTBTS. When you, or Tim, or anyone asks me a question about the bible, I will answer it. When you ask a question about something not in the bible, and represent it as if it is, I will point it out. I have been as consistent in that regard as I can be. My side of "discussing " has been limited, in that regard, because of your misrepresentation of the bible. I believe I have mentioned it several times, and you still persist in your misrepresentation. As far as the spoiled child reference, it was made because you don't seem able to deal with someone rejecting your methods. That shows that you haven't had much turbulence in your background, as if someone over-protected you as a child. Your first reaction to resistance seems to be to cry, and chase away, rather than learn to deal with it.  (Tuesday Aug 25 | post #38)

My argument with you is that you don't know what the bible says to begin with. As far as their literature is concerned, I don't believe I've ever said anything in disagreement with you. You seem to be a fish out of water when it comes to the bible. Also, you can't seem to handle any real opposition. Right away, yourself and the other biblical naysayers want me to leave, if you can't control me. You must have an awfully unhappy life. No one seems to behave like you want them to. Were you a spoiled child?  (Tuesday Aug 25 | post #28)

What point is served discussing foolishness with fools? If someone wishes to discuss the bible, I'm at their service. If someone wishes to make a mockery of what the bible teaches, I treat them in kind. You wish everyone to be your fool. I don't comply. I merely point out your failing. You have absolutely nothing to contribute here. All you've come to do is ridicule others, with absolutely nothing to offer of benefit to anyone. You don't even know how foolish you actually are. How could you hold a discussion? For some reason you seem to believe that you, talking foolishness and ridiculing others, is discussing. It's not. When something is discussed, there is a back and forth that leads somewhere. You've nowhere to go.  (Monday Aug 24 | post #22)

If Tim would read the account, it is simple enough to find out why it occurred. Why should anyone reward laziness? As to the second question, man never stopped sinning, Noah and his family all sinned, and continued to do so after the flood. Before I explain anything, you should be specific as to what you would wish me to explain, that can't be understood by merely reading the whole account. I'm not a JW, but JW's do understand much of the account.  (Monday Aug 24 | post #17)

Let's start with post #3. You decided the reason for the destruction of the earth by the flood was to eliminate sin. No where does it state that in the bible. That understanding of things caused you to state that reading the account was a waste of time. That is making a mockery of it. If you would bother to know what you are speaking of before sticking your foot in your mouth, so to speak, you could get a civil response. Your unwillingness to do so show's that you really don't care what the bible says; you are against it.  (Monday Aug 24 | post #15)

Either you accept it, or leave it alone. When you try to change it to suit yourself, that is where I object. I object, because you are trying to put your values on it. What better are your values than the original? Especially when you misstate the original, to begin with. Your, and others, derogatory views are never based on what is actually stated. Always some caricature of the accounts are used. I have said what my faith is in. It is in a lifetime of study of what is actually there. question me on that, and I will defend that. Making a mockery of what is there, and expecting me to defend against that doesn't live up to the task. I never have had faith in the things you say.  (Monday Aug 24 | post #12)

Churchoids speak Truth- only by Accident...

You know exactly what I mean, and if you despise deception, you have tunnel vision. You mean that you hate other's deception. You show that you are fine with using it yourself, or promoting the deception of the Watchtower and it's acolytes. (although the Catholics might bristle at the comparison)  (Monday Aug 24 | post #8)

The others you refer to are the ones I liken you to. I post things that are real about the bible. The others you refer to are always posting things that are not real about the bible. They, rather, try to criticize the bible without knowing, or caring, what is really in it. so if I am incorrect about you, or them, show it.  (Monday Aug 24 | post #10)
