Oh.... wrote an answer and lost it..... start again....
I totally agree with you.... so you win the bet. Lol. When I compare the developments in the world to the core knowledge we have - then my appreciation grows.
Yes, there are renegades among us who bring shame on us with their wickedness. But were we not warned about the rocks in our love-feasts which we can stumble against?
My life changed when I did an in-depth study of Islam (read Quran, some hadith and sirah)....... I thought through the social structures of Islam and its promises to rule the world...... and its laws...... It made me analyze society and what the future society under jehovah will look like.... in order to show the differences in Islam and Jehovahs government. I also compared sharia law and Torah /talmud with the self-sacrificing love and principles taught by the true messenger from God- jesus.
Atheists also have no moral compass for society to function well. Good and bad is subjective to them - not objective. We are all supposed to be equal under God. As society is slowly replacing God with post modern and other human philosophies, we are seeing a regression of conditions in first world societies...... the incompatibility of the iron and clay.....
The neo-communistic philosophies that have infiltrated western societies through the Frankfort school of thought (Marxism also wants to rule the world) and its alliances with Islam in the west - this favours an undercurrent of clashes and in future. The UN has already brought in strict laws against islamaphobia to maintain "peace and order " and they will bring in further new society rules to accommodate new identified minorities.
So yes, I do have a different kind of OCD than some of our friends. I revert back to appreciation of the CORE teachings of the bible that is so different to a fast- regressing secular world. The first things I learnt from the bible which gave me my first love for God. These radical new and secular developments give me a good sense of where we are in the stream of time.
Yes, the Society is more than capable of talking out of both sides of its mouth. Its leaders simply have no respect for the truth -- only for their own traditions.
The GB member at the ARC flat-out lied about the GB's claim of being a spokesman.
The last few comments have referenced “the end,” but they have missed the most obvious sign.
As you know, Jehovah’s Witnesses take a few years to work their way through the Bible via assigned chapters. This week we consider Revelation chapters 1-3.
The end will come in about two months. It would be too inconvenient to make them start all over again from the Genesis beginning.
Call THAT not bringing in anything useful?
That makes a lot of sense Alanf thanks for sharing.
I always found it funny, when I was a JW how some scriptures does not apply to the org and some do.
I also find it funny for example, as long as I was a JW the GB always said they were the spokesman or channel of Jesus and Jah on earth they will give scriptures blah blah blah but at the Australian Royal Commission suddently they weren't the only channel or spokesman of Jesus and Jah on earth... 🤣🤣🤣
@TrueTomHarley I'm sorry to have to say this to you, but it appears to me that you and @Arauna are very selfish and actually offer nothing of use to any of the topics.
Arauna very often talks about herself just as you talk about yourself. She will say 'I am not impressed' 'I do not fall for your bait.'
She and you seem to be full of your own self importance. IMO you both waste space here.
