  1. Whoa there buddy. Even Paul appealed to Caesar when he had the opportunity. Millions of Christians accept social security and other government benefits. Are you suggesting they should forego these things because they are supposed to be no part of the world? What about fire and police protection? Should we also forego assistance from these brave folks because we proclaim we are no part of the world? Of course not. After the same scripture you quoted above also states that governments are God's servants. They frequently do a measure of good and we all benefit when governments exercise thei
  2. What is your point? As a religious organization they are due the same tax breaks that are given other religious organizations. At least in this country you generally cannot discriminate against a religious organization just because you object to their doctrine or how they spread their beliefs. As far as any deal to make renovations, i'm sure the city could sue over breach of contract if there were grounds.
  3. According to Strongs Concordance: G3552 νοσέω noseō nos-eh'-o From G3554; to be sick, that is, (by implication of a diseased appetite) to hanker after (figuratively to harp upon): - dote. Total KJV occurrences: 1 G3554 νόσος nosos nos'-os Of uncertain affinity; a malady (rarely figurative of moral disability): - disease, infirmity, sickness. Total KJV occurrences: 12 Basically, referring to them as diseased is allowable: at least according to Strong's Concordance.
    • Hello guest!
    Hopefully the link worked. Here is the text. OTTAWA -- A Jehovah's Witness who was expelled from a Calgary congregation cannot take his case to a judge, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled in a decision that affirms the general right of religious organizations to govern their own affairs.
  4. Prophecies are rarely appreciated when they are being fulfilled and is is usually after fulfillment that people recognize that a prophecy has been fulfilled. Nothing wrong with keeping on the watch, but better to not get in to debt thinking that you won't have to pay it back. We don't know the day or hour, but we can certainly discern the season. Cheers.
  5. I saw this article yesterday. Very sad. The individual attacked first had just gotten out of the automobile and was attacked at the car. The other three got out and attempted to help the first victim. Lesson to watch out. Life comes at you fast.
  6. I see nothing wrong with learning about other religions. It serves a useful purpose in helping the citizens understand other people. However, I do have a problem if the way they educate is to perform a daily act of worship in that religion. After all, it is possible to learn about a religion without participating. We learn about ancient Aztec religion by reading about it, not performing a human sacrifice.
  7. When you read the entire article you find the answer is yes. Basically, follow the rules, dress appropriately, and have a pleasant demeanor.
  8. So, after reading the source document it appears that she is very active in black lives matter and seems to believe that mankind has the ability to solve our problems. She may be right in that mankind has the ability, what they don't have is the will to facilitate solutions. People from all political stripes seem to be more interested in their pet causes or positions and no path of compromise is available to enact real and lasting change. Only God's kingdom has the ability to enact real and lasting change that will benefit everybody. Even pain and death will be done away with. No politica
  9. *** g90 2/8 pp. 3-5 Discovering ‘The Great Reptiles’ of the Past * The Genesis Account and Dinosaurs While the radioactive dating method is innovative, it is still based on speculation and assumption. In contrast, the Bible account in the first chapter of Genesis simply states the general order of creation. It allows for possibly thousands of millions of years for the formation of the earth and many millenniums in six creative eras, or “days,” to prepare the earth for human habitation. Some dinosaurs (and pterosaurs) may indeed have been created in the fifth era listed in Genesis, when th
  10. What are you talking about? There was no mention that she was teaching them religion nor was she asking them to observe her religious views. If they wanted to have a Valentine Day party they were free to do so as they have done so in the past and it was organized by the student's parents. In this case the principal asked her to organize the party and she refused.
  11. you might be considered a cult if you punish people for leaving the group. Teaching or trying to persuade members of the group that the information from the faithful and discrete slave is wrong or misleading I can understand, but nobody should be punished for leaving the group of their own volition.
  12. This entire position of not using sisters because they might be put in a position to give brothers direction and violate scripture is just silly. When Paul commented about women instructing brothers he was specifically talking about in the meeting where brothers were supposed to take the lead. I mean really, what is wrong with sisters working behind the literature counter, handling microphones, directing traffic, or even directing friends to their seats. Oh well, times are changing.
