Concerning "Loving Things of the World" ....

We are very fragile, big ugly bags of mostly water and require a LOT of things :of the world to stay alive, and healthy, and emotionally stable.

I have 16 pet chickens ( two died of heat exhaustion, from being run around the yard by my dogs, after flying out of their temporary enclosure, and I buried them this morning in the yard with little plastic pipe "tombstones" which I melted into the side with a soldering iron their names and date of death, which was yesterday).

And yet ... today at Golden Corral, my wife and I ate fried chicken, and I pondered "Am I a hypocrite, for loving both live chickens ... and those crispy fried??"

I looked at myself in the mirror, and noticed my eyes are in front (predator), and the chickens' eyes are on the side of their heads (prey), and decided that  that is the natural order of things, and I should just get used to it, without recriminations.

Besides .... "Love Never Fails" .... and with the fried  chicken .... it's no one we know.

First, everyone should stick to the subject matter, rather than submit rolling commentaries to distract from that subject matter.

That's good advice. I really did take a risk in guessing that @Bubba Johnson Jr also had in mind how Brother Splane's "Chart of the Ages" could be related to 1 Thess 5. It turned out that I was right, and that this was not a distraction from the subject matter, but ended up getting right to the heart of the subject matter.

To me, the mistake that Russell made with the pyramids also gets exactly to the real heart of the matter. This is why, as a joke, I did something similar with Splane's chart to what Russell claimed he did with the charts of the crisscrossing drains and ducts that were built into the Pyramid. I won't discuss the pyramid topic in full here, but if anyone else is interested in a serious discussion I'm up for it under another topic heading.

Your own post was typical. A few things right, a few things wrong, a few WT quotes with unrelated information that you believe defended Russell. You add information that you pretend is not already simple and obvious so that you can call others ignorant and deceptive. Unfortunately, even if you already see where you were wrong, I still have come to expect only more attacks, arrogance, name calling and diversions.

If you want anyone to take you seriously, I recommend a method that gives more weight to facts and evidence, rather than just bluster and arrogance.

Just like your arrogance, diversions, and falsehoods. I don't consider anything Bible Student based to be a good subject matter to the post. You just figured you had another chance to criticize the Watchtower and you took it for the effect. What do you call that criticism if NOT attacks!

Therefore, stop trying to twist things around to benefit you! It no longer works! Something you should be used to by posting certain truths, with half-truths, and plain falsehoods.

What did your friend James say about the appeal for the truth? What conditions did he set forth?

Let’s not start contradicting each other.

 

Because of the climate of toleration in America, it soon became host to every denomination of Christendom, each settling in a certain geographical area. We cannot recount the history of the various denominations of Christianity here. The reader should consult Sydney Ahlstrom’s A Religious History of the American People for an excellent survey of each group, the contributions of Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758), the .Great Awakening, .transcendentalism, and so on. Also noteworthy in the modern period are the far-reaching changes brought to theology as a result of the Enlightenment. The French philosophers, English deists, and German idealists did much to change the complexion of Christianity.

The nineteenth century saw the rise of Darwinism, which introduced a new and alternative “scientific” explanation for human origin, challenging the biblical account. Karl Marx (1818–83) extended Darwinism to the economic sphere, explaining human alienation as a result of class struggle. He argued that religion was an “opiate” that kept the masses fixated on another-worldly utopia, thereby escaping the reality of the sufferings of alienation in this world.

Ironically, so do authors that studied that period the CORRECT way, will come to the same conclusion Russell did with his personal experience.

What a great time to have lived when the harvest was shifting to enlightenment rather than stay stuck with a false approach to Christianity. False hope such as “eternal damnation” that Rutherford spoke of in “millions now living will never die” because of understanding scripture, not giving people that kind of false hope to scare people straight.

I would like to know the answer to THAT one!

By the way ... that "Millions Now Living Will Never Die '' ... how well did THAT turn out?

Typical again. As usual, more false claims about others without evidence. That's bluster. But you add so much arrogance to your bluster. Furthermore, when it's pointed out, you reflexively project the things you do wrong back onto others.

BTK46 has stated many times that everybody but him is ignorant, uneducated, a fool and worthy of derision ... and that we have no understanding of human psychology in dealing with his criticisms.

I think he may be right about that one,  as I often sit here wondering "Where does he GET these ideas?"

After all, it's not what WE think, it is what Scholar Emeritus BillyTheKid46 thinks that matters!

I have never seen in my entire life a person with MORE TALENT to be a Watchtower Lawyer.

He makes evil seem so effortless!

... when they have baby back beef spare ribs at the Golden Corral ( a USA all you can eat buffet restaurant ...) my table looks like a dinosaur graveyard...

Some of us cannot afford such luxury. I'm happy to get a bit of bacon.

@Anna  You see how some guys use this world  :) :) :) Love of the world and it's food.  :)

Yeah .... I had to give up bacon many years ago, because I just could not afford it ... or would not afford it because the price was so high ... and MANY foods escalated in price to the point I stopped buying them.   But Golden Corral Buffet has a TREMENDOUS selection, and my wife and I are "Seniors", and if we get there before 4PM, we can get the dinner menu for the price of a "Senior Lunch/Early Bird Special".

That means that for $9.00 apiece, we can feast like kings ... steak, spare ribs, giant shrimp prepared four different ways, pizza, fried chicken, chili, beef stew, clam chowder ( my favorite...), and before 4pm we get free soft drinks, as well. Every kind of desert you could want, and any kind of salads you could fix. Eight different kinds of fruit,  and all the real, quality ice cream you can eat!

I calculated that by eating one large meal a day, we can eat like kings for $10 a day apiece, which is less than the cost of groceries to eat half as well,  AAAAAAND ... no preparation, OR dishes to wash! 

Even including the fuel cost to get there and back,, it's cheaper.

..and light years better!

Sounds like a good idea. However, get a good breakfast - it is very important.  The body needs the food when we are facing the pressures of the day not late in the evening. It dumps most of the stuff then and we put on weight.  Before 4.00 p.m. seems OK, but get some healthy snacks in between.

By your ignorance of not understanding that those people are not condemned to hell eternally as false religion had it at that time, I say it will go very well for those people that will be judged by Christ and not automatically be denied resurrection. At least, they have that hope, when you, Anna, ?Winsider have known, for becoming enemies of God, by your treacherous minds and tongues.

However, its good you are now an open apostate, and not hiding it by some poor cartoonist humorless tactics. The same kind of diversions and bluster from your girlfriend ?Winsider. 😏

There is no way to lose weight without being hungry.

... except of course, for cancer, or something.

Don't mention cancer, I'm trying not to think about it.

Well... Noah did not want to think about giraffes, either ... that's why when they showed up he had to cut two big square holes in the roof of the Ark.

Now... for the next few minutes, do NOT to think about Noah's Ark, with two big square holes cut in the roof, with giraffe necks and heads sticking out.

You know Billy, when I visualize you, I think of you either as a gutless weasel, or a venomous overgrown jellyfish, floating in the ocean.

I know in reality you are neither of those things, but somehow, every time you speak, that's the image I get.

I am more inclined towards the venomous jellyfish, as they have been alive and prosperous all over the Earth's oceans, for at least 300 million years .... with no brain whatsoever.

...... but today, your comments project an image of the gutless weasel.

You must be looking in the mirror again James. You just described yourself and John. Now you just need to let John know which one he is. Personally, apostates are all the same and deserve zero respect.

Why ?Winsider thinks so, well you need to take it up with him.

Do you think Jesus was kind to the pharisees? Matthew 23:33

Do you think Jesus was kind to the merchants in the temple? Matthew 21:13

You just proved once again how uneducated you really are about scripture along with those that pretend to know much about it.

But, that's neither here nor there. I do understand your desperate attempts to distract from the truth. 😏

Therefore, I will continue to expose those FAKE members of the ORG. 🙄
