why not buy some bubble gum and have a chewing good time too, and perhaps sit on a river bank blowing bubbles? :-? sidgi  (Tuesday Apr 15 | post #23)

can you show this based on prophecy.....or did you just conclude it all on your own? sidgi  (Tuesday Apr 15 | post #21)

what is it that you expect God to do? Depression has it's own little world. I've not found any magic words to make someone feel better. I've found that when I'm overly depressed, I am usually depending too much on my self, and not enough on God. This world exists, and there is no getting away from it. We are a part of this world, in that we are just as imperfect as it is. If your imperfection is at the root of your depression, forgive yourself, God already has. If you want more than that, apply yourself to getting to know God better. Form your own close personal relationship. I know this isn't what you wish to hear, but it's all on you. Others can tell you how they've dealt with it, but you still have to do it in a way that fit's your needs. This is Jesus words on the matter....... 7 “Keep on asking, and it will be given YOU; keep on seeking, and YOU will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to YOU. 8 For everyone asking receives, and everyone seeking finds, and to everyone knocking it will be opened. 9 Indeed, who is the man among YOU whom his son asks for bread—he will not hand him a stone, will he? 10 Or, perhaps, he will ask for a fish—he will not hand him a serpent, will he? 11 Therefore, if YOU, although being wicked, know how to give good gifts to YOUR children, how much more so will YOUR Father who is in the heavens give good things to those asking him? More than likely you've seen these words before, and they haven't been much help. If that is so, is it because you haven't gotten away from doing things your way? It's one thing to apply God's words in your life as you see fit. It's quite another to apply them from God's point of view. The whole world is filled with people doing things their way, and the result is the horrible condition people find themselves in. I doubt that many are deliberately avoiding God's wisdom when it comes to living, but darn few are trying to eliminate their own ideas, urges, and leanings and replace them with God's thoughts. If you can do that you will find success, and the things that God promised. It isn't a quick solution, but nothing worth while from Gods view is easily accomplished by imperfect people in this imperfect world. sidgi  (Monday Apr 14 | post #15)

are you beating yourself up because you're not perfect? It's an easy trap to fall into. If you wish to be acceptable to God, then seek him out. If you don't get immediate results, then keep on seeking. Keep on asking. Not asking men, particularly, but asking God himself. That's the provision made. Climbing up some other way is what gets people into trouble. If, in the end, God says you are acceptable, who are you to believe differently? sidgi  (Monday Apr 14 | post #8)

The Resurrection.

While the Witnesses seem to have an answer for almost every question, it doesn't mean their answers are the correct ones. They are most often plausible answers, but not provable ones. I guess my question to you is....what difference do such answers make? Sure, there is a quietude in thinking you have the future figured out to an extent, but in reality, many of the things written in the bible are not explained fully. If it isn't explained beyond a point, then it would seem such information, while seeming desirable, is totally unnecessary to someone's future.All of the answers available, are available to all. There is no reason to believe that in today's world there is anyone specially tasked with disseminating info to the rest, as if it were in some kind of code, or that one group has been tasked with bearing God's truth above all others. As far as what's out there in the realm of claimed service to God, there are many plausible explanations to tantalize those unfamiliar with the bible themselves. It's easy to be dragged into following those with a good spiel. The important knowledge is clearly and plainly said in the bible. While there isn't any reason to go beyond the things clearly presented, there is more to life than necessity. There is nothing wrong in grouping with others in trying to understand the bible, but putting that group in the category of necessity in understanding the bible is a step in the direction of following men. sidgi  (Monday Apr 14 | post #11)

do you think it is OK for Jehovah's Witnesses to make stuff up about themselves? They've been doing it for years, and you've remained their steadfast arbiter and supporter. Why don't you put yourself in the honest category for a change. sidgi  (Friday Apr 11 | post #17)

It's OK to make things up about the Watchtower, because they've been making up stuff about themselves from their beginning. Is their made up stuff somehow more acceptable than others made up stuff, when it comes to public image? sidgi  (Friday Apr 11 | post #10)

The governing body is warranted biblically?

Jehovah's Witnesses arrange the facts in the matter in such a way as to justify their position of a first century Governing Body. However if you take the time to do a critical read of the relevant scriptures for yourself, you will find that the facts don't support it. sidgi  (Tuesday Mar 25 | post #5)

never mind, I am tired of your sidestepping crap. You weren't posting to other people. You were replying to my posts. I see no point in discussing with an eel. sidgi  (Feb 26, 2014 | post #26)

If you wish to have your own discussion, supplying my point of view for me, I can't see the sense in responding to the content of your post, it would be superfluous. However, if you want to discuss the validity of scientific claims on the creation account, show your empirical evidence so we can discuss it's validity. I will admit that most religious claims are absolute bunk, based on the eye of the beholder, rather than solid evidence. Now, where is this empirical evidence? sidgi  (Feb 25, 2014 | post #23)

yes they do. it is funny that one set of unprovable claims is considered more trustworthy than another set of unprovable claims, when neither is based on solid principle. sidgi  (Feb 25, 2014 | post #18)

regardless of unprovable religious claims, hiding the scientific claims in hundreds of millions and billions of years (totally unverifiable) and basing everything on theory (SWAG) established on an unsubstantiated but popular (in the scientific community) premise (wouldn't it be great if....then we...) is hardly established fact. sidgi  (Feb 25, 2014 | post #17)
