      Dice encontraste en mi pasado 
      Una razon para quererme
      o para olvidarme 
      Pides cariño, pides olvido 
      Si te conviene
      No llames corazon 
      Lo que tu tienes... 
      De mi pasado 
      Preguntas todo 
      Que como fue; 
      Si antes de amar 
      Debe tenerse fe; 
      Dar por un querer 
      La vida misma sin morir 
      Eso es cariño
      No lo que hay en ti... 
      Yo para querer
      No necesito una razon 
      Me sobra mucho,
      Pero mucho corazon

      No sé qué está pasando 
      Que todo está al revés
       Que tú ya no me besas 
      Tal como ayer 
      Que anoche en la playa 
      No me dejaste amarte 
      Algo entre nosotros No va bien
       No culpes a la noche 
      No culpes a la playa 
      No culpes a la lluvia 
      Será que no me amas 
      No busques más disculpas 
      No siento tus caricias
       Ya no eres la misma Que yo amé 
      Te veo tan distante 
      Te siento tan distinta 
      Pues hay dentro de ti Otra mujer
       No culpes a la noche 
      No culpes a la playa
       No culpes a la lluvia 
      Será que no me amas 
      Ya no sé, ya no sé,
      ya no sé Qué va a pasar ya no sé,
      ya no sé, ya no sé 
      Qué voy a hacer 
      No sé qué está pasando
       Que todo está al revés 
      Pero ya no lucho 
      Como ves Ayer no te importaba
       Amar bajo la lluvia
       Hoy no te divierte Ya lo sé.

      Soy ese vicio de tu piel, que ya no puedes desprender
      Soy lo prohibido, soy esa fiebre de tu ser
      Que te domina sin querer
      Soy lo prohibido, soy esa noche de placer
      La de la entrega sin papel, soy tu castigo
      Porque en tu falsa intimidad
      En cada abrazo que le das sueñas conmigo
      Soy el pecado que te dio nueva ilusión en el amor
      Soy lo prohibido, soy la aventura que llegó para ayudarte
      A continuar en tu camino, soy ese beso que se da
      Sin que se pueda comentar
      Soy ese nombre que jamás fuera de aquí pronunciarás
      Soy ese amor que negarás para salvar tu dignidad
      Soy lo prohibido
      Soy el pecado que te dio nueva ilusión en el amor
      Soy lo prohibido, soy la aventura que llegó
      Para ayudarte a continuar en tu camino
      Soy ese beso que se da sin que se pueda comentar
      Soy ese nombre que jamás fuera de aquí pronunciarás
      Soy ese amor que negarás para salvar tu dignidad
      Soy lo prohibido

      Muy profundo, solo pienso en ti
      Vivo en el ayer
      Porque nunca mas te vi
      Esperando
      El milagro azul
      Que te hará volver
      A mis brazos con su luz
      Si pudieras ver
      Que aun te siento aquí conmigo
      Muero al comprender
      Que es preciso hallar una salida
      Y liberar mi vida
      Me niego a estar solo
      Contigo en este mundo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Aun sigo siendo tuyo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Me ahoga tu recuerdo
      Mientras sepa que tu existes
      No podre vivir solo
      Amanece
      Te soñé lo se 
      Porque vi caer
      Otra lagrima en mi ser
      No concibo
      Despertar sin ti
      Como pudo ser
      Que te tuve y te perdí
      Si pudieras ver
      Que aun te siento aquí conmigo
      Muero al comprender
      Que es preciso hallar una salida
      Y liberar mi vida
      Me niego a estar solo
      Contigo en este mundo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Aun sigo siendo tuyo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Me ahoga tu recuerdo
      Mientras sepa que tu existes
      No podré vivir solo
      Para saber que estoy perdido en
      Tu pasado
      Tendrías que decírmelo
      Y aun así no quiero 
      Me niego a estar solo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Contigo en este mundo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Aun sigo siendo tuyo
      Me niego a estar solo
      Me ahoga tu recuerdo
      Mientras sepa que tu existes
      No podré vivir solo

      Porque después de la primera discusión 
      Hay muchas más 
      Hoy terminamos 

      No Discutamos

      Por no decirte francamente que 
      Ya no te amo.. 

      Ya te pedí perdón 
      Y no me quieres perdonar 
      ¿Qué quieres que yo haga? 
      ¿Que me quede o que me vaya? 

      Porque no puedes evitar 
      Que yo la quiera 
      Es más la amo.. 

      No me preguntes que cuando comenzó este amor 
      Porque por Dios por Dios 
      Que no, que no me acuerdo

      Que de ella me enamoré 
      Y hoy la quiero 
      Es más la extraño..

      El diario chileno El Mercurio informó que ya estaban todos los detalles listos para la presentación de "Luismi" y que incluso la productora T4F+Bizarro, una de las responsables de llevar al artista a Chile en febrero, viajó a la Ciudad de México para reunirse con los representantes de Luis Miguel y ajustar los pormenores de su viaje.
      Sin embargo, durante su estancia en México representantes de la productora asistieron a sus espectáculos en vivo y se dieron cuenta de las irregulares presentaciones de "El Sol" y las cancelaciones de sus conciertos sin previo aviso.
      Por esta razón y las constantes trabas del mexicano para transmitir su espectáculo por televisión, los productores decidieron finalmente cancelar la participación de Luis Miguel en Viña del Mar 2019.

      La versión acerca de que el cantante murió hace años y a quien vemos es un doble fue retomada y se ofrecieron nuevos detalles   Luis Miguel ha estado desde hace semanas envuelto en una nueva historia sobre su supuesta muerte
       
      Después de que la vidente Deseret Tavares asegurara que Luis Miguel murió hace años y a quien vemos ahora es un doble, la historia de supuesta muerte ha recobrado fuerza y nuevos detalles del asunto circulan.
      El periodista Jorge Carbajal, el mismo que asegura ha visto a Juan Gabriel, habló, hace más de medio año, en un video de YouTube acerca de la supuesta muerte del cantante mexicano.
      Esta semana retomó el asunto y ofreció más información de la increíble historia sobre "El Sol".
      Carbajal aseguró que en los años 90, cuando el presidente de México era Carlos Salinas de Gortari, Luis Miguel inició un romance con Cecilia, la hija del mandatario.
      Hace unas semanas la vidente Deseret Tavares dijo que Luis Miguel murió hace años (Foto: Instagram) Según esta versión, el presidente nunca estuvo de acuerdo en la relación entre su hija y el cantante, de quien se decía que consumía drogas.
      Cecilia habría invitado al cantante a una fiesta en Los Pinos, que hasta hace unos meses era la residencia que habitaban los presidentes de México y ahora está abierta al público.
      Resulta que llega el momento en el que ya la fiesta estaba en su clímax … Fue tanto el exceso de cosas que hubo que a Luis Miguel le empezó a dar un dolor en el pecho, empezó a sentir que se ahogaba ... Lo sacaron a tomar aire y de repente dio el 'azotón' horrible. … Cuando cae, se reúne la gente y dan órdenes que saquen a toda la gente", explicó Carbajal.
      De acuerdo con el relato, el cantante nunca reaccionó y un médico anunció su deceso. Para evitar un escándalo mayor, el presidente ordenó que se cavara un agujero cerca del asta bandera en Los Pinos y ahí fue enterrado.
      Carbajal dijo que desde ese momento un doble suplió a "El Sol".
      Luis MIguel sigue siendo tema de historias y leyendas urbanas (Foto: Especial) Deseret Tavares dijo que Luis Miguel murió hace 15 o 18 años por órdenes de un hombre poderoso "presidente o gobernador". Según la vidente, el cantante fue asesinado, su cuerpo sepultado y después lo sacaron para depositarlo cerca de un lugar con agua. También dijo que hay dos mujeres involucradas en la muerte.
      Durante su visita al programa "Hoy", de la tv mexicana, Deseret fue cuestionada por Jorge "El Burro" Van Rankin, para quien resulta increíble la historia de que Luis Miguel haya muerto, pues son amigos desde hace décadas y él no ha notado ningún cambio en el intérprete.
      Deseret ha dicho que una de las pruebas de que el Luis Miguel que vemos no es el verdadero es el hecho de que haya accedido a contar la historia de su vida para un programa de tv, pues siempre fue muy reservado.

      Acaricia mi ensueño
      El suave murmullo
      De tu suspirar
      Como ríe la vida
      Si tus ojos negros
      Me quieren mirar
      Y si es mío el amparo
      De tu risa leve
      Que es como un cantar
      Ella aquieta mi herida
      Todo todo se olvida
      El día que me quieras
      La rosa que engalana
      Se vestirá de fiesta
      Con su mejor color
      Y al viento la campanas
      Dirán que ya eres mía
      Y locas las fontanas
      Se contarán su amor
      La noche que me quieras
      Desde el azul del cielo
      Las estrellas celosas
      Nos mirarán pasar
      Y un rayo misterioso
      Hará nido en tu pelo
      Luciérnaga curiosa
      Que verá que eres
      Mi consuelo

      No, ya no pienses en llorar
      de que vale lamentar
      lo pasado , paso
      si ese amor terminó
      otro amor puede llegar
      nunca es tarde para amar
      y volver a ser feliz
      sonríe no
      para que la soledad
      cuando la felicidad
      puede hacerte sentir
      como es lindo vivir
      nunca dejes de soñar
      y mañana al despertar
      ve la vida con amor
      sonríe, sonríe
      noooo nunca dejes de soñar
      y mañana al despertar
      ve la vida con amor
      sonríe, sonríe

      Te vas porque yo quiero que te vayas
      A la hora que yo quiera te detengo
      Yo sé que mi cariño te hace falta
      Porque quieras o no
      Yo soy tu dueño
      Yo quiero que te vayas por el mundo
      Y quiero que conozcas mucha gente
      Yo quiero que te besen otros labios
      Para que me compares
      Hoy, como siempre
      Si encuentras un amor que te comprenda
      Y sientas que te quiere más que nadie
      Entonces yo daré la media vuelta
      Y me iré con el sol
      Cuando muera la tarde
      Entonces yo daré la media vuelta
      Y me iré con el sol
      Cuando muera la tarde
      Yo quiero que te vayas por el mundo
      Y quiero que conozcas mucha gente
      Yo quiero que te besen otros labios
      Para que me compares
      Hoy, como siempre
      Si encuentras un amor que te comprenda
      Y sientas que te quiere más que nadie
      Entonces yo daré la media vuelta
      Y me iré con el sol
      Cuando muera la tarde
      Entonces yo daré la media vuelta
      Y me iré con el sol
      Cuando muera la tarde
      Te vas porque yo quiero que te vayas

      Hasta que me olvides voy a
      intentarlo
      no habra quien me seque tus
      labios
      por dentro y por fuera
      no habra quien desnude mi
      nombre
      una tarde cualquiera
      hasta que me olvides tanto que
      no exista mañana ni despues
      no...no...
      hasta que me olvides voy a intentarlo
      no habra quien desnude mi
      boca
      como tu sonrisa
      y voy a rodar como lagrima
      entre la llovizna
      hasta que me olvides tanto que
      no existe mañana ni despues
      hasta que me olvides
      voy a amarte tanto tanto
      como fuego entre tus brazos
      hasta que me olvides...
      hasta que me olvides
      y me rompa en mil pedazos
      continuar mi gran teatro
      hasta que me olvides... hasta que me olvides...
      y voy a bordar tus sueños en la
      almohada
      llenar poco a poco el silencio
      con tu abecedario
      y cuando me calle por dentro
      tenerte a mi lado
      hasta que me olvides tanto que
      no exista mañana ni despues
      hasta que me olvides
      voy a amarte tanto tanto
      como fuego entre tus brazos
      hasta que me olvides...
      hasta que me olvides
      y me rompa en mil pedazos
      continuar mi gran teatro
      hasta que me olvides...
      hasta que me olvides...
      voy a continuar copiando
      tu cuerpo sobre la pared
      y voy a colgar en tu pecho
      la noche y el amanecer...
      hasta que me olvides
      voy a amarte tanto tanto
      como fuego entre tus brazos
      hasta que me olvides...
      hasta que me olvides
      y me rompa en mil pedazos
      continuar mi gran teatro
      hasta que me olvides...
      hasta que me olvides...

      Ella era símbolo de sensualidad y música norteamericana. Él, un latino que había encantado al mundo entero. Parecían culturalmente "demasiado lejanos" como para siquiera compartir preferencias artísticas, pero a fines de los 90,' una curiosa conexión acabó convirtiéndolos en la pareja más querida y mediática de la escena musical..

      Como explicar
      La magia que tiene su
      Manera de enamorar
      Tan bella
      Me estimula su calor
      Su forma de caminar
      Sensual hacia mi
      Déjate llevar
      Por la música que incita
      Nuestros cuerpos no quieren parar
      Deja de luchar
      Que hay razón para que me ames
      Nuestro destino es así
      Suave
      como me mata tu mirada
      Suave

      Como siempre te soñé
       
      Como controlar
      La cálida seducción que tienes cuando
      Me das tus besos
      Aunque lo quiera evitar
      Mil cosas me harán pensar
      Que voy hacia ti
      Déjate llevar
      Por la música que incita
      Nuestros cuerpos no quieren parar
      Deja de luchar
      Que hay razón para que me ames
      Nuestro destino es así

    • For a brief time, Mike Tussin was a roommate of mine. He drove me nuts in taking literally the admonition to read God’s Word “in an undertone day and night.” In time, he learned that he had better not do it in my presence. I logged some of his exploits in No Fake News but Plenty of Hogwash. He was one of the most squirrelly characters that you will ever hope to meet, and yet—people are a mix—he had the most telling common sense, knack for nailing aspects of human nature (though mixed with an odd naïveté), no fear whatsoever of man, and the ability to simplify the complex. I can hear him now explaining to someone or other just how it worked with the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, composed of anointed Christians. This would have been in the early 1970s. “They study and study their Bibles and one of them notices a point and discusses it with the others. They continue to turn it over and over. If their discussion reaches the point of agreement, that idea finds its way into the Watchtower—that’s how God’s people are fed spiritually today. “Now, in your own personal study, you may have noticed that point, too, maybe even before they did. And if this was Christendom, you’d go out and start your own religion over it.”  He captured it. I like the idea of ‘they’re not the only people who can think’ as well as the notion of waiting on headship and not running ahead. Present your idea, but if it doesn’t get adopted, don’t lose your cookies over it. The ship cannot sail in every direction at once. Rumor has it that Sputnik came up for discussion at the Bethel table after 1957, but it was aborted before takeoff. Might that date not be a milestone in the last days stream of time commencing with the outbreak of World War I in 1914–a year marking the first time in history that the entire world went to war at once? Throw in the greatest plague of history, the Spanish flu of 1917, the colossal food shortages that always accompany colossal war, and viola!—one is powerfully reminded of Luke 21:10: Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.”  Might 1957 Sputnik mark a mighty exclamation mark in “fearful sights and great signs from heaven?” It certainly scared the bejeebers out of the Americans, and within 3 years President Kennedy declared that the US would not play second fiddle to the Russians. They would join—and so make it—a “space race” by sending a man to the moon. It is worth a simulated launch, I guess—presenting the idea at Bethel—three GB members batted about the idea, I’m told, but I’m glad that it blew up on the pad. The “fearfulness” would have been lost on most people. Did the race have military implications? Relatively few catch the implications of anything. They take it at face value, as it was popularly repackaged just a few years later: Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before! On a flight to Damascus, Bill had a vision of such. Some strange fellow that he probably took for an angel presented the idea to him right there as he was riding in the Shatner seat. Like Saul, it disoriented him completely for a time, and the other passengers heard of the disturbance, sure enough, but witnessed nothing themselves. As a boy, I never once trembled when they launched a rocket from Cape Canaveral. I always took it in the spirit of advancing technology, advancing exploration, and so forth. It’s one of the few major accomplishments of men that has NOT been quickly put to military use—though that could ever change—the way that airplanes were. No sooner had they been invented then they were strafing the towns of Europe and dogfighting each other in the skies. In contrast to 1957, World War I was not only perceived by just about everyone, but it was instantly perceived as a negative. Probably that’s what the other GB members pointed out, sending the three Bethel “astronauts” pitching the notion hurtling off like Darth Vader in his crippled craft, careening off to the pantry for a donut or two. Hmm. Maybe an update could incorporate robocalls from the cloud. What year did they begin? Truly, they cause men to raise their faces and curse the heavens. Truly, they too, are instantly perceived as a great evil, as any time-share owner in the Everglades knows. You know, as I read the 1960 speech, I can see how the idea might come up for discussion at Bethel. Despite my innocuous take expressed about it—a take that has mostly played out (but may someday not)—there certainly were military overtones—overtones that just might make some tremble—in JFKs speech rallying Americans to support a moon launch. Everything must be considered in its own historical context. I’ve added italics to his words that play this way: “We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours. “There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?  “We choose to go to the Moon...We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too.” ..... Yes, you could read a measure of terror into that speech if you were of a mind to, though I did not as a boy. The President says: “Space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours.” What are the chances of that happening?

    • Good start. Just noticed the latest post. Does Russell make any distinction for 1844 other than to suggest it was a great disappointment for the second coming churches? Did he use 1844 to further his calculation? Does he mention 1844 to be part of his calculation? Does he stipulate 1910-1911 is referenced in scripture? It far more interesting, that some continue to project Russell as an Adventist, when Russell was “clearly” criticized for having a negative view of Adventist. It speaks volumes to those that continue to portray a false narrative. “So today, when prophetic time or anything relating to the Lord’s Second Advent is mentioned, many Cry ‘Adventist,’ as if to say, ‘Can any good thing come out of Adventism?"- even though they admit that many prophecies containing time are not yet fulfilled, and that the second coming of the Lord is the most prominent topic of Scripture." "We have great sympathy for both the First Adventists (the Jews) and the Second Adventists, though only a few of either realized the truths they So nearly apprehended, yet failed to grasp, each being blinded by false expectations. Our Adventist friends have failed to recognize both the manner and the object of the Lord’s return as taught in the Scriptures; consequently they have not been expecting to ‘see him as he is,’ but as he was. They consider the object of his coming one which will fill the hearts of all except the saints with dismay and terror; that his object is to gather the elect, destroy all others of mankind, and burn up the world."   Interesting how conflicted people start with William miller’s account of chronology, 1844. I wonder if Brown and Miller were the only ones to make calculations on the 1260 days, 2520 days. CHRONOLOGY--Prominent Dates. Q76:1: QUESTION (1910)--1--Should we consider it necessary to call attention to other Prominent dates than 1874, 1878, 1881 or 1914? Should 1911 be included?   ANSWER--I am glad that question is there, my dear brothers and sisters. You will notice that in my own teachings and writings I am careful to avoid any other dates than these. I know nothing about other dates. In the third volume of Scripture Studies there is a suggestion, but it is offered only as a suggestion, merely that a certain measurement in the Pyramid (not in the Word of God) Looks as though it might point down to 1910 or 1911, but we do not say that it does mean anything, but merely throw out a suggestion. Don't anticipate, don't say things are to occur, for we do not know, at least I don't, and don't believe anyone else does. My advice is to follow the Apostle when he says, "We speak those things that we know." Don't say anything about those things that you do not know. Quite likely you will wish you had not after a while. Nineteen hundred and fourteen is the time when the "Gentile Times" will end. What does that mean? I do not know, but I think it is when God lets go in a general sense of the word, and permits things to take their course; and we can readily suppose, as the Apostle says, that the course of nature would be set on fire, because of strife. In the world of mankind, I shall expect a time of great trouble, which the Bible marks out as having its beginning about October, 1914, but I think, dear friends, that it is more important, instead of telling of the time of trouble, to tell about the good things. The poor people who get into the time of trouble will have all they want of it then. I have enough now, and so have you. The Scriptures say that through much tribulation shall we enter the kingdom, and if we pay attention to our duties, we will get enough without taking time to tell them about the time of trouble. The world will not be profited by our telling, either. We do not wish to scare anybody. It is indeed a spectacle, when that kind of suggestion is made by a conflicted person. Were there any earlier works of Miller 1844 disappointment? History shows, there were some. Some that paint a more precise picture than that of Miller. Therefore, Russell did not have any influence with Miller’s 1844 prediction nor did Russell use it as basis for comparison. "When the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat; when the earth and the works that are therein shall be burnt up."   At the present time the blessings of peace seem to be nearly general throughout the nations of the earth. This I deem a very favourable sign. War, however, with its train of abominations, may not finally terminate till about A. D. 1914, or perhaps A. D. 1956; neither do I think that the seventh thousand years, or great Sabbath of the world, or the beginning of Christ's third day, will commence before A. D. 2046 ; and this belief or conclusion I take to be no less deducible from a variety of the prophetic numbers, than from the figurative language employed by Christ concerning the three days, and the three measures of meal, during the time of which the whole world shall be gradually leavened by the kingdom of God.   As I have calculated the prophetical numbers, it will be 206 years from A. D. 1840, before the beginning of the seventh thousand years, or the great Sabbath of the world, when God's rest shall begin to be glorious, and when Christ, that glorious Sun of Righteousness, by the brightness of His coming into those temples, It is indeed sad when people try so hard to end up empty. As stated earlier by an architect of misrepresentation said, it’s an embarrassment. I agree it is.
    • It is worth a simulated launch, I guess—presenting the idea—but I’m glad that it blew up on the pad. It would have been lost on most people. Relatively few catch the implications of anything. They take it at face value—“Space: The final frontier: these are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise—it’s continuing mission: to seek out new world’s, to boldly go where no man has gone before.” On a flight to Damascus, Bill had a vision of such. Some odd fellow that he took for an angel presented the idea to him right there on the Shatner wing. Like Paul, it disoriented him completely for a time, and the other passengers heard of the disturbance, sure enough, but witnessed nothing themselves. As a boy, I never once trembled when they launched a rocket from Cape Canaveral. I always took it in the spirit of advancing technology, advancing exploration. It’s one of the few accomplishments of men that has NOT been quickly put to military use, as airplanes were.  In contrast, WWI was not only perceived by just about everyone, but it was instantly perceived as a negative. Probably that’s what the other—how many were there then—GB members pointed out, sending Bert and his co-astronauts scuttling off to the pantry for a donut. Robocalls from the cloud, on the other hand, ARE perceived as an instant evil, as any time-share owner in the Everglades knows.
    • If you think they use it for their own purposes then why do you donate?  That is not logical. It depends on what you define as own purposes, private purposes, public purposes, necessities, etc.  I think you really should be more thankful to be associated with the organization and what it does for us.
    • My donations are always by check, and written thereon is "for local needs". It's like paying taxes, some of which are used to make hydrogen bombs, and ICBMs. Not my problem. Jesus and the Apostles needed NONE of those things you mentioned, Arauna. If you are NOT inspired of God, as the GB admits they are not ( February 2017 Watchtower), you do need all of those things you mentioned. They are actually essential, as I would freely admit. .... and HEY!, I am just guessing about all of this ... as is everyone else. And Arauna .... did you get NOTHING out of the "Follow Jesus" Assemblies? Jesus set the example . We are either following that example, or ..... WE ARE NOT. The fact of the matter is that the GB DOES use the billions for their own purposes. but, I am, as you stated, "no one to criticize" ... as I do not follow Jesus' example either. If I had that kind of money, I would buy a Chinook double rotor helicopter, instead of Rolex watches, and cartoons of Caleb and Sophia, etc. uh ... for Witnessing on beautiful Pacific Islands, of course ....    
    • Just one question for you:  when you go to meeting or field service you get to use many videos that were made to be easily accessible for all ages and peoples.  Do you have any clue what equipment costs?   Many poor congregations in Africa receive projectors from the organization because they cannot afford it. They do still print bibles and watchtowers etc. Do you think they must remain in the Jurassic age when it comes to using technology or will it be ok by you if they venture to use the newest tech to support the brothers? You have a budget to fulfill your responsibilities at home.....dont you?  Why not broaden out and see that they also need money to provide services in almost 1000 languages?   I think we need a little more gratitude and less criticism...  ALL you see is "billions" which you try to imply are used for their own purposes....  They are always in need of funds to make it stretch further..... because we do get all our spiritual needs fulfilled without cost.  You need not give any donation if you feel they waste it.  You can use all amenities without giving a dime!
