The Truth about JW's and 1975.......

I don't know....it seems clearer than your last one. Oh, wait, you've never posed one. I wonder why that is. Could it be because your mommy never gave you one? That is why none of you know anything. Your mommy doesn't know anything, so who would possibly tell you?  (9 hrs ago | post #22)

The Truth about JW's and 1975.......

Why is it that you folks always disappear, when your own spirit is brought into the light? There are only two spirits, and if you don't have God's, you have another. The word spirit, in the bible, means breath, or when animated, breather. Their are variations, because of usage, but, this is the beginning, and where one should start. So, in whatever context, whether dealing with living creatures, bible principles, God's inspiration, The spirit of the thing, is what gives it life and being and motive. There are only two motives... Godly....the rest....... Until you folks come to grips with this kind of stuff, you're never going to understand the bible. And when you cry that you don't even know what I am speaking about, you are just declaring to everyone that i am correct in my assessment, that you haven't a clue about things of the spirit. At any level.  (13 hrs ago | post #20)

I Will Care For My Sheep

Question: If Satan has been given the key to the abyss.... does that mean that he can resurrect anything of his that God has destroyed? including pre-flood things? Question: Where does the bible indicate that the Garden of Eden is? Question: Why do they never propose that the heavenly resurrection, spoken of in most "Christian " and related doctrine, is sourced from heaven, and not into heaven? If you wish to be useful, instead of just a pest, why not answer these and several other things that have been bothering me, for some time, about the general understanding that those actually have about those things they preach. If you don't know where the bible places Eden, there is no way that you could have faith in any of the end-time prophecies. You couldn't possibly understand them. Once you figure that one out, we'll move on to what it actually indicates about some things. Or if you're not up to it, just ignore........  (13 hrs ago | post #6)

So, then, if someone accepted everything you just said, in these previous posts, what would the difference be to them personally, in regards to everlasting life?  (14 hrs ago | post #5)

The Truth about JW's and 1975.......

Do you ever examine your heart? Jehovah cleans those He uses as ministers. They don't have to deflect away from the truthfulness of something in order to conceal it. Why would you even believe such a thing would be necessary in your service to God? Since you do, then maybe you ought to reevaluate your position.  (17 hrs ago | post #18)

The Truth about JW's and 1975.......

What point are you trying to understand about my bible study with the elder? I put it as concisely as I thought possible. I covered the personality of the study from a bible standpoint. What ever your experiences have been, is of no concern to me. I am about bible truth, not personal glory. I don't match bona-fides with fools who can't understand the bible for themselves. Jehovah God has been my instructor. I have waited for Him, and my patience and endurance has paid off. I have recommended the same to the rest here. definition: fools follow the stupid. the stupid follow themselves. That way you can know exactly what Jehovah thinks of you, and why.  (17 hrs ago | post #17)

The Truth about JW's and 1975.......

I studied with an elder of thirteen years. I was surprised to find that, after the near twenty years of his membership, and thirteen of them being considered a teacher of the bible, he really didn't know the bible. Neither did I at the time, but he never could answer any questions that were about the content of the bible. He would just refer me to the large library of publications, on such matters. At the end of six months, which is about what it took for the "free home bible study", and not due to the knowledge of the study conductor, I had a rudimentary knowledge of the bible. Not near enough, but it was already more than the elder conducting the study himself had, as far as the bible itself is concerned. It's still the same today. Only, those fools who believe that someone else must know all of the information so we don't have to prove it to ourselves, are by far the majority. And besides, there is all of the reference material, if we need prove it to ourselves, right? What fools they all are.  (18 hrs ago | post #14)

Watchtower going mainstream ?

I noticed it. I even mentioned it to both of them, in the last month or so, and they don't seem to understand my meaning. The response I got was avoidance from the one, and the old "I don't even know what you are talking about" disclaimer, from the other. Although I didn't pursue either one in a direct manner, so as to make it as clear as you have, I did see the shift to the international and intra-national interests flavor. I immediately connected the dot's to the UN, and figured we were in for some kind of Awake Magazine bombardment about the many tremendous things the UN has done.  (Wednesday | post #2)

1,000 vs. 0 (paradise earth)

So, what is your point of complaint? Is it that the printing company uses words to describe something that the bible indicates is God's purpose for the earth, words that the bible doesn't itself use, or that they refer to something not generally believed by other religions?  (Wednesday | post #2)

The Truth about JW's and 1975.......

Were you a part of the goings on, in and around the publishing house, during the years leading up to, and just after the 1975 lie, propagated by them? Probably not, as you so confidently state your position. I happened to be studying with them, in the book..."the truth that leads to eternal life"..(title purposely not capitalized). As I had mentioned in a post before here, my mother was attracted by the wrangling of the publishing company, trying to sell their wares, and using a trumped up method of determining a date, that the bible said was unattainable. Well, I studied. Only used the information I received from the bible to further my understanding of the bible, not to draw into their web of deceit. The reason it is a lie.....? The public didn't suck it out of their own thumbs, like Jack Horner. They were presented with the notion continually, in an everything but absolute declaration of certitude, for many years. By inference, by article, by sales pitch, by public announcement, by program parts in convention arrangements, over the back fence to the neighbors, etc. and all of it was done with the approval of the leadership. Otherwise it wouldn't have been done at all, let alone kept as a headline thought for years, in a deliberate fashion. And, by the way....your book studies, are just that....book studies. The bible has it's own set of teachings, and you people don't have a clue what they are.  (Wednesday | post #7)

Ready to obey ANY instruction?

I'm afraid the instructions will amount to the humorous recommendation in case of a nuclear event.... If you see a sharp light, and a mushroom cloud....bend over...grab the back of your knees...pull your head through the gap between your legs,......and kiss your butt good-bye. I'm sure that with the gullibility factor being what it is with those magazine people, It will take more than a few days for it to set in.  (Sunday Feb 19 | post #2)

the bible is not inspired

Perhaps you need get off your"high horse." His point is an accurate one, timing not withstanding. He is making an application of prophecy before it's time, that's all. At least he has the presence of heart to realize just where it applies, and it's unavoidable intent.  (Friday Feb 17 | post #101)
