you present your post as if peddling magazines and other publications from door to door, is somehow noteworthy. My uncle peddled Raleigh products and Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners from house to house when I was a kid. Another fella in the area sold Fuller Brush products from house to house. They were all very good products, and came in handy for those wishing them. your "claimed " purpose of more noble intent, doesn't hold water. You personally might have some kind of worthy intent, motivating you to do what you perceive yourself as doing.; but you have no control as to the motivations of other members, many of whom are higher on the food chain, than yourself. is your fruit real or imagined? Whatever it is, Jesus said it would identify you.  (1 hr ago | post #128)

maybe those who were baptized under the authority of the old questions, might think they are now being second-rated. They can't put that one up on their mantle, so to speak. They'll be the shame of the campfire at the next JW all night cook-out and reverie.  (5 hrs ago | post #117)

I think you just like to sow discontent. you have nothing to show for your beliefs than a few anecdotal and unsubstantiated references. Resorting to imaginary happenings to justify your own beliefs, is no different than others resorting to religion, or social causes. it is all imaginary at some point. The bible is stable; whether God is imagined or real, it just is. just like you do, other men tend to put their take on things, and justify it any way they can. i was just replying so that anyone wishing could know there was another view besides yours, that could have a valid premise.  (7 hrs ago | post #6)

it's seems that you are taking issue with the bible's view of headship in a marriage. Let's face it, that is a modern, social, ping pong ball, and is meant for nothing but to sew discomfort in people. As far as what is better in a marriage arrangement, I guess it depends what the goal is. Adam left his wife take the lead once, and he followed along. it cost dearly. But for you, trial and error seems best. There certainly are no real consistent list of instructions in life, other than the bible. it stays the same no matter what. men change all of the time, and not necessarily for the better. just change. Whichever wheel is squeaking loudest this week.  (8 hrs ago | post #4)

Romans 2: For whenever people of the nations that do not have law do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves. They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts, while their conscience is bearing witness with them and, between their own thoughts, they are being accused or even excused.This will be in the day when God through Christ Jesus judges the secret things of mankind The married couples you speak of, are using the same values that God recommends, in many cases. It just goes to show how those values, whatever their immediate source, are lasting values. People don't have to be religious to appreciate that. It will also come in handy (having a value for good principles) if one needs to make a decision as to whether to approach God, in the future.  (9 hrs ago | post #2)

Full Definition of gobbledygook : wordy and generally unintelligible jargon This also is a fine description of the Witness teachings. They are sort of an "articulate mumble". Then when you question them on a particular facet, you get the implied 'blank stare". (we are on a web site, after all) So what can they have of value? If left up to them, we may never know.  (9 hrs ago | post #110)

First things first...Show the lies I spoke about you. I will repent if I said anything that wasn't true, or at least up for debate. First...I have already read the bible. Why would I need your help to do that? second...What are your qualifications? Have you been authorized by God to teach His word in his name? you're here making this large offer of your time, and that appears admirable on the surface, But what value does your offer have? if God didn't send you, what real value does your volunteering have to anyone?  (11 hrs ago | post #107)

The biggest lie the WTS ever told:

oh but you have twisted the bible to suit yourselves. but you already know that. you just call it "the light getting brighter," or "new light". I have read the bible. it doesn't recommend the gathering of the wheat before the harvest, (which hasn't begun yet) it recommends a personal journey with God on the road to life. Where do you get the idea that your help is needed. I didn't see a mention of you in the beginning of proverbs or in the sermon n the mount. There were no private instructions to the apostles to build a new religion. So Where do you fit in? Don't get me wrong, i think it is admirable, you people taking it upon yourselves to volunteer your life to the publishing company you work for, but where does a world sized organization, fit in Jesus instructions? i didn't see it mentioned in the bible. Did i really miss it in my reading? Anything that large, you would think rated at least a mention, don't you think?  (11 hrs ago | post #29)

The biggest lie the WTS ever told:

They've been hearing your so called "warning message" for years. it hasn't changed. Those questions you ask; do I believe in this or that? What difference does it mater to you, what I believe? You ask those questions, as if they matter. Who made you the arbiter of the bible? I thought Jesus already did that. i have read the bible. it doesn't suggest what you people believe, any more than it does those things you mention.. The trinity, hell-fire, immortality of the soul, preach the good news in the time of the end. (other than the "two Witnesses") and all of the information the bible contains is free. it's there for the reading by all. Why would anyone need help with the reading of it? "What we do and preach is solidly based on Gods word. No one can prove otherwise." it's a small claim to fame. it could be said by any religion claiming to represent God, in this day and age. The only difference might be magnitude, and or method, but i haven't seen any requirements as to magnitude, or method, only a mention that some would do more, and some would do less, as far as following Jesus is concerned, based on their own ability.  (11 hrs ago | post #28)

The biggest lie the WTS ever told:

you are correct. God does have a people, and I am one of them. But that has nothing to do with you. you, and your ilk are not God's people. But you can keep claiming it. it changes nothing, but it might let you hold on to what you do have a while longer. merely making a claim only puts you in company with those Jesus said would come in his name. he said not to go with you. So i recommend that no one go with you. is there anything wrong with that?  (19 hrs ago | post #26)

I guess what I often reject is the premise that is driving the scope of the scriptures considered to be relevant in any given subject, let alone what is considered by some to be a "bible" subject.  (21 hrs ago | post #95)

I take note that you are a bit divided in your view. On the one hand you wish to give your opinion to others in the form of a supposed bible study, yet you say....."Also , I am not interested in human opinions on what the Bible means." When it comes to paraphrased bible versions, which give you a man's opinion up front, or, your way, it is slipped in gradually and over time, there isn't a bit of difference, in the outcome.  (22 hrs ago | post #89)

The biggest lie the WTS ever told:

Those are the tougher questions that don't seem to be answered in the library of publications. You know.... the things that someone having the temerity enough, to wish to serve Jehovah with a whole heart, would wish to know. yep, that's right.... the kind of individual you say you are looking for. Why don't you have answers for them?  (23 hrs ago | post #22)

Why would a bible study with a Jehovah's Witness not be the same as reading "The Amplified Bible" ? It's is a lot less complicated way of getting someone else' opinion of the bible, one would think.  (Yesterday | post #85)
