Independant thinking.

What has happened to you lately? In the last few days, I've noticed that your posting has become more substantive, and more in harmony with God's spirit. If that sounds condescending, please overlook it because of my tendency toward directness, and my Jethro Bo'dine education.  (12 hrs ago | post #10)

How about the lack of mention of or to a governing body, or anything resembling such  (15 hrs ago | post #4)

definitely a scripturally supportable possibility. Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations  (17 hrs ago | post #3)

....why Jesus never mentions the preaching of the good news in his directions to the seven congregations in chapters two and three in book of Revelation?  (17 hrs ago | post #1)

"Taking In Knowledge"

you seem to be equating the complete lack of knowledge of something with an overabundance of knowledge of the same thing. When would an overabundance of knowledge about something become a negative thing? When that knowledge outshines the very thing it represents. Up till that point it is harmless. As someone else said, having knowledge of someone is not the same as knowing them. The whole world is witness to that reality.  (Sunday | post #16)

Not always an abuser

there are plenty of things in this command to the Israelites, that could be useful in determining how to scripturally deal with the well-being of the congregation, and also be fair to the "ill" one. Jehovah doesn't leave it to chance. If there weren't so many pedophiles being hidden from the rest, it wouldn't be such a large financial liability. Jehovah seems to be bringing that point home, don't you think? Leviticus 13: 45,46 As for the leprous one in whom the plague is, his garments should be torn, and his head should become ungroomed, and he should cover over the mustache and call out, ‘Unclean, unclean!’ All the days that the plague is in him he will be unclean. He is unclean. He should dwell isolated. Outside the camp is his dwelling place.  (Sunday | post #11)

They ASK- but don't WANT to know!

How long have you been studying the bible? I'm making a query, not a challenge, and am making it here, since I can't IM you.  (Sunday | post #33)

Why I'm STILL one of Jehovah's Witnesses...

Isn't she just arguing against your opinion of it? It just goes to show how Pharisaic you "Witnesses " are. looking into the mirror of James, are we?  (Sunday | post #1998)

Look! I am coming as a thief. Happy is the one that stays awake and keeps his outer garments, that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness  (Saturday Feb 28 | post #26)

I hadn't realized you had been through a similar experience in the transmitting of information between God and man, so as to describe it so flatul...fluently. but us mere mortals, having to rely on what is written, can't afford to try and think above our station. one was for the purpose of building....plans, the evidence of which is the God approved result. the other was to convey an idea. you surely can't argue with that, can you?  (Saturday Feb 28 | post #14)

I wasn't there, but the record says he had a pattern, not something signified by illustration.  (Saturday Feb 28 | post #9)

One immediate difference that stands out is the fact that one had a precise model (the one shown in the mountain), and the other was signified to John by an angel, as an illustration.  (Saturday Feb 28 | post #7)

Since I haven't said anything about a new heavens, or earth, I will assume that you are making up an argument for yourself to answer. Your reasoning on the matter, not withstanding, it still isn't any more than anyone knew before you made it. and still, no one really knows what it means. that's why things occur in illustrations. Or haven't you read the bible at all?  (Saturday Feb 28 | post #5)
