A "Cross" The Scriptures, The Tree of Life & The Instrume...

Some learn easy and some learn hard. Many lessons I've learned the hard way. Just trying not to rub your nose in it too much. Go away son, you messed up and everyone but you knows it. And maybe even you do. I hope so for your sake. What you didn't take into consideration is the fact that I know the WTBTS position on defiling oneself with women. I purposely asked the question the way I did to broaden your horizons. Since it was a non WTBTS approach, i thought you would be cautious. You weren't and you got burned. I wasn't skillfully directing you. You already have the best bible knowledge, remember?  (8 hrs ago | post #66)

There was nothing ambiguous about the question at all. If you stop trying to soothe you ego, maybe you'll learn to pay a little closer attention as to how something is asked, that's how someone becomes wise. You just jumped at the seeming chance to make me appear a fool. Reread your response. Proverbs 1: A wise person will listen and take in more instruction, and a man of understanding is the one who acquires skillful direction, to understand a proverb and a puzzling saying, the words of wise persons and their riddles  (9 hrs ago | post #64)

your basic dishonesty just doesn't rest does it? Not only are you and idiot, you are a fool. Thinking that you will look less so by twisting things. You belong with the WTBTS. They will make you a circuit overseer or a district overseer someday with you corruptibility potential. Keep up the good work.  (9 hrs ago | post #60)

Here is the first example in the bible of a man defiling himself spiritually with a woman. It is the only significant occurrence recorded. It is the only one necessary to convey the point. For all of the supposed depth of understanding the Witnesses have of the bible, you people really don't know much. Genesis 3: Consequently the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was something to be longed for to the eyes, yes, the tree was desirable to look upon. So she began taking of its fruit and eating it. Afterward she gave some also to her husband when with her and he began eating it. This could be the beginning of your understanding of scripture, but I doubt you have the sense to put forth the effort.  (11 hrs ago | post #53)

It just goes to show that you've no integrity. That's no biggie. I don't know a WTBTS hack who does. When you figure out what I asked, which goes to the heart of the viability claims of the WTBTS anointed, let me know. I'll be around. If you can't demonstrate by example, one of the qualifying factors of the 144,000 it would make all claims in that direction suspect. But hey don't worry about that, only you fools believe it anyway, and if it comes from them you'll believe anything.  (13 hrs ago | post #51)

My point has been fully made. You can't back up your brags about JW bible knowledge being so superior. You can howl all you want anyone reading can see it. It's certainly not an advertisement for bible study, that's for sure. It shows you up personally for the liar you are. Integrity isn't big among JW's and you're no exception.  (13 hrs ago | post #49)

But of that day knoweth no man, Matthew 24:36

As Forest Gump says, "stupid is as stupid does, my mama always says". You don't even see how that scripture applies to you after I even explained it.  (13 hrs ago | post #169)

you lose. You were the one making the claim of bible knowledge so great as to outshine. And with the limiting factor of ad hominem, there is absolutely no risk. Unless you don't really know your bible at all.  (13 hrs ago | post #47)

No, I posted a scripture highlighting the fact that no matter what I might say, you've already, at some point, criticized that position. You are so transparent it's pitiable.  (14 hrs ago | post #167)

Jesus....the son of man

read it and figure it out for yourself. I'm assuming you have a WTBTS library disc, they're easily gotten. Put in the search phrase "son of man" in quotes, and it will bring up all of the instances of it's mention. That way there is no argument. Or if it's argument you're after perhaps someone else will accommodate you.  (14 hrs ago | post #5)

But of that day knoweth no man, Matthew 24:36

With whom shall I compare this generation? It is like young children sitting in the marketplaces who cry out to their playmates,  saying, We played the flute for you, but did not dance; we wailed, but did not beat yourselves in grief. Correspondingly, John came neither eating nor drinking, yet people say, He has a demon; the Son of man did come eating and drinking, still people say, Look! A man gluttonous and given to drinking wine, a friend of tax collectors and sinners. All the same, wisdom is proved righteous by its works. The truth just is. It isn't there to please people, and I'm not here to do that either. If you stop trying to fit me into a definition other than I've given for myself you'll make less of a fool of yourself. My guarantee to you.  (15 hrs ago | post #164)

Will You Choose Salvation, Or Men?

Why do you relate straight forward as anger? It can only be your conscience's reaction. You feel I'm condemning you when all I'm doing is speaking straight forward things. I don't coddle those who place themselves in the position of advising others, when they don't know enough to get in out of the rain, themselves. For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be.  (15 hrs ago | post #58)

But of that day knoweth no man, Matthew 24:36

Anyone can have truth. All you need do is value it. You don't value it, or you would have it. The WTBTS try's to sell what it calls truth. Truth is completely free. I have it, and I'm not offering it to you. I am just relating to it as why I say what I say. It doesn't matter to me in the least what you choose to accept as a motive for what you choose to do here. I am giving you mine. A love for truth. I'm not trying to convert anyone, nor am I looking for acolytes, nor a following. Just pointing out truth. When I say things about yourself or others, it's based on the personality shown. There are only two motives, and that is the truth. "selfish and righteous" and that's the truth. That is based on biblical representations of both, not some Psychobabble approach. The first thing necessary is a clear knowledge of scripture, one not motivated by personal gain of any kind, other than the knowledge itself. Once someone has that, they know if someone else has it or not. Simplicity itself. Oh, and a few years of personal study. Haven't you ever wondered why my bible understanding is superior to others? That's because I just let it be. I don't try to make it into something personally useful. That way you can know what it says, instead of what you believe it means. And before you get into the ego crap, you can't have a large one if you wish to know the bible. It was written from a perspective that only humility can understand properly. If that doesn't make sense to you, then it doesn't. Ad homeinem away.  (15 hrs ago | post #161)

I guess. The first one to use ad hominem looses. Ad hominem adjective appealing to personal considerations rather than fact or reason. lets start with what it means to be defiled by women. Revelation 14: These are the ones that did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. give the first example of that happening in scripture, in such a way that would disqualify someone from being on Mount Zion with the Lamb.  (15 hrs ago | post #45)
