It boils down to anyone can cherry pick scriptures from the bible or change words to make it say what ever you want. I say it all started when they came up with their own version of the bible.
Arauna….id love to know which Christian religions promote smoking.

You object to solid evidence as not being absolute proof, yet you believe all manner of falsehoods when the Watchtower Society has no proof for its claims, nor even evidence aside from its bald, unsupported proclamations. Hypocrite!
Do you actually think that is an answer to what I wrote? No wonder you make no sense.
My grammar is excellent. You have no examples where it isn't. You're a liar.
None so blind as those who will not see.
Perhaps, but It’s not that difficult to surmise when someone is an unrighteous person.
A person that makes every attempt to demonize an organization because they grew to hate it by their own admission, doesn’t qualify that person as righteous. Where can you place love with hate. The only way, I love to hate the Org.
Interpretation of scripture is best served with exact knowledge. If not, you’re just preaching to the choir. Then I don’t force my opinion on you and you don’t force your opinion on me.
Let me just state. In English language. The word “quire” can also be used.
However, owns the alter-ego AlanF. It’s best to put him back on the shelf. It's not effective, especially with the abusive language.
I do not participate in the large "JWN" forum. I've tried but there is no way to actually have a Biblical discussion due to the number of non-believers and ridiculers of all things spiritual.
I have participated in forums for studies of the Ancient Near East (ANE) and Biblical Greek and Hebrew, but it's been years since I tried to get questions answered there. I got invited to a chronology forum based on a correspondence with Rolf Furuli. This "theworldnewsmedia" is the only one I have looked at in months. I think it makes a good place to write out my own opinions and concerns and usually get some thoughtful feedback. It's not too crowded, and I'm pretty sure it's small enough so that no one from HQ will take much interest. I'm sure it's not run by elders, btw.
They were saying much the same in the 1970's. But you still are not answering my questions.
I know JW's are living on a type of 'mana', just like the Israelites were in the wilderness, but the mana is being obscured by the GB adding pollutants
No you are wrong. The dogma / rules don't need to be looked for, they are forced on JW's, and constantly mentioned on here.
But i don't see any replies to my original questions yet.
BUT what important beliefs have we gained since 1960 ? What IMPORTANT SCRIPTURAL input have those at the top made since 1960 ?
And I say the Org is stagnant. Hence it make up rubbish, such as the overlapping generations, as it goes bumbling along.
Quote @Arauna " you are looking for the answers that can suit your agenda." Yes, as my Agenda is searching for TRUTH.
